Laser Treatment of Pigmented Spots

With this effective laser treatment, the skin rapidly absorbs the laser’s light energy, vaporizing the unwanted melanin and lightening pigment. Patients can expect crusting of the affected area after the treatment, which should resolve within one to two weeks. Redness immediately after the treatment is typical, or at times a purpuric reaction.
