LASER/LIGHT BASED TREATMENTS | Laser for Pigmented Lesions
Laser for Pigmented Lesions
Pigmented lesions are brown spots that can occur on the face, neck, shoulders, hands and any part of the body. Laser treatment at our Miami area (Coral Gables) office can restore even skin tone and younger looking skin without pain or downtime. All laser treatments are performed by our board-certified dermatologists, so you can rest assured that you are in good hands.
We use today's most advanced technology to remove the tell-tale signs of sun exposure, including the Candela Alex TriVantage® laser, Cutera Enlighten Picosecond laser, Fraxel 1927 nm Thulium laser, Clear+Brilliant Permea laser and Cynosure Icon™ MaxG IPL for optimal results. Your dermatologist will discuss all of your options and help you determine which device is right for you and how many treatments you will require.
Generally speaking, these treatments produce only mild discomfort, but numbing cream may be used if you desire. The laser device quickly delivers energy that is absorbed by the brown spots. Over the course of 1week, the dark spot will change color and slough off. The healthy new skin underneath may be pink for a short time, but this will return to normal.
Since these treatments only remove the surface color, the skin underneath is left unharmed. There is minimal to no downtime, and patients typically return to normal activities following their treatments. We do encourage our patients to be cautious with sun exposure before and after treatment. Please call today to schedule an appointment with one of our board certified dermatologists to determine which treatment is ideal for you.
