Preserve your skin’s natural Beauty
Just about everyone has a few obvious brown spots on their skin. Age spots, freckles, and various birthmarks are just a few of the commonly known marks generally referred to as pigmented lesions. Although some pigmented lesions can be ignored, many are quite conspicuous, and can easily detract from your skin’s natural beauty.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION

What causes these unwanted pigmented lesions?
Melanin is what gives our skin its color. The amount of melanin in your skin determines if you have a light or dark complexion. Pigmented lesions are dark in color simply because the melanin is abnormally concentrations of melanin can be due to various factors. Some types are presented at birth, but most occur with age, or as a result of overexposure to the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays.

How does the MedLite laser remove unwanted pigments in the skin?
The MedLite laser is one of the most technologically advanced lasers for removing pigmented lesions. The laser removes these pigments with the energy of light. The specialized light produced by the MedLite laser is absorbed by the pigmented lesion. The unwanted pigment is then destroyed, thus removing or lightening the lesion.
What types of brown spots or pigmented lesions will the MedLite remove?
The MedLite is most commonly used for removing brown age spots, “liver spots”, freckles and other brown birthmarks, such as café-au-lait spots and Nevus of Ota. Your physician will identify your specific type of lesion and discuss the removal success rate associated with your condition.

Does the MedLite remove my normal skin pigmentation also?
No, the laser light of the MedLite was specifically designed to effectively target the dark concentrations of melanin. After the abnormal amounts of melanin are removed, and treatment continues on normal skin, some whitening could occur. However, your body’s natural melanin over a period of time, returning the skin to its natural color.

Is the process painful?
The MedLite laser emits light in very short pulses. The impact of the energy from the power pulse of light is similar to the snap of a thin rubber band. After the treatment, the area will feel similar to light sunburn. Typically any discomforts will disappear within a day or so. After the redness clears, the skin returns to its natural color and texture.

Can the excess pigmentation come back?
Common pigmented lesions do not return. Some birthmarks may return after a period of several months to a year. However, the procedure can be repeated.

What type of post-treatment care is necessary?
Usually, an antibacterial ointment and a dress will be applied to the area immediately after treatment. The treated area should be kept clean with a continued application of any ointment given to you by your physician. A shower can be taken the next day, although the treated area should not be scrubbed.

How do I get started?
Your physician will be happy to discuss this procedure with you. Please feel free to make an appointment for a consultation to discuss your specific needs.
