Melanin is what gives our skin its color. Pigmented lesions are dark in color simply because melanin is abnormally concentrated in one area of the skin. High concentrations of melanin can be due to various factors. Some types are present at birth, but most occur with age or as a result of overexposure to the sun’s damaging rays.
Lentigines or age spots are premature ageing brown marks, which appear on the backs of hands and the face. Sunburn freckles are the result of sun damage and occur on the back, upper chest and shoulders. Most are harmless but all are ageing and may be unattractive. Cafe au lait, Nevus of Ota, Mongolian spots and other flat pigmented birthmarks are localized areas of increased pigmentation in the skin, which are present at birth. Although most brown spots are easily ignored, many are quite conspicuous and can detract from your skin’s natural beauty.
Most brown birthmarks will fade with treatment but some recur. These may require additional treatment to keep pigmentation at bay. Brown age spots often fade or disappear with a single treatment. Thanks to our state of the art laser, you (usually) don’t have to live with unwanted freckles, age spots, or pigmented lesions for the rest of your life. Dr. Raju is helping people of all ages fade and eliminate marks that, for a variety of reasons, they no longer want on their bodies. “This laser will allow us to safely help patients look and feel better.”
“Since my laser treatment I am no longer self-conscious about the spots on my hand…My skin is now perfectly clear.”
