Pigmented Laser for Pigmented lesions
How does Laser work on Pigmented Lesions?
Laser energy is converted into heat energy when absorbed by cells. Lasers target specific areas of pigmentation since this area selectively absorbs energy more because of a high concentration of pigmentation. This causes targeted effect leaving the surrounding tissue undamaged.
Is the treatment painful? Is it safe? How long will the treatment take?
Pain threshold is subjective but most individuals handle the treatment with very less discomfort. Laser for pigmented lesions are proven safe. Each session will take 15-30 minutes depending of the size of the treatment area.
