The collective desire to stay forever young has created an enormous market for anti-ageing treatments. Recent developments in laser technology are now delivering a longer lasting and scientifically proven method of restoring the natural beauty of the skin. Laser treatment offers an effective means for the removal of benign & pigmented lesions. The treatment is quick and painless, and there is no need for any needles or anesthesia.
What is Laser Removal of Benign & Pigmented Lesions?
Lasers are simple, fast, effective and safe tool for removing a wide variety of benign pigmented lesions, such as freckles, age spots, birthmarks, moles, certain vascular lesions, ephelides, melasma, seborrheic, and actinic keratoses.
How Does It Work?
Laser removal of benign & pigmented lesions works by destroying the pigment in the skin without the need for excision. This process in completed 3 simple steps:
Step 1: Light Absorption
The laser producers short nanosecond pulses of intense light that pass harmlessly through the top layers of the skin to be selectively absorbed by the melanin pigment in the lesion
Step 2: Pigment Break-Up
The laser light is transformed into photoacoustic waves which mechanically break up the melanin pigment into smaller particles
Step 3: Pigment Removal
These particles are then removed by the body’s own immune system, as the skin’s macro-phages clear the excess pigment from the area
