What are brown spots or pigmented lesions?

Our skin’s hue is a result of melanin. Each of us has a different amount of melanin depending on how light or dark our complexions are. Brown spots, or darkly pigmented lesions, are caused when melanin is abnormally concentrated in one particular area of the skin. These elevated levels of melanin are caused by a number of causes. While some are present from birth, the majority develop with age or as a result of excessive sun exposure.

Can these be removed without surgery?

Absolutely. Using modern laser technology, lightening or even successfully removing pigmented lesions can be done. Using the energy of light, a laser is able to remove these pigmented lesions. Abnormal melanin concentrations require the appropriate wavelength of light for optimum absorption, and this is exactly what the Medlite provides. For maximum melanin destruction, short, high-intensity pulses are delivered by the laser. To provide maximum removal of abnormal melanin with as little damage to the normal skin as possible, this combination of rapidly pulsed light and wavelength is specifically effective.
