Pigmented Skin Lesions

With over 300 sunny days a year in Phoenix, we have a greater chance of getting pigmented lesions. These can be a variety of shapes and colors and develop anywhere on the skin, though they are most common on the hands and face. It is widely recognized in the medical community that Q-Switched lasers are the ideal tools for effectively removing benign pigmented lesions. Our multi-wavelength, Q-Switched laser system with frequency-doubled KTP is uniquely able to produce very short pulses of intense light that are selectively absorbed by treatment-specific pigments in a lesion.

Safe, Effective and Minimally Invasive Treatments

For a difficult-to-treat condition such as melasma, our laser is especially effective due to the selectivity of Q-switched light, enabling it to break apart pigments only and not cells. This means that pigment destruction can take place without ablating the skin – a unique feature that also allows other treatment possibilities, such as the safe and effective removal of complex, multi-colored tattoos.
