Pigmented lesions, more commonly known as brown spots or age spots, are a result of excess melanin in the skin. While some pigmented lesions are with us from birth, hence the name birthmarks, the majority of brown spots are products of aging and sun exposure. And while most pigmented lesions are safe to remove, some spots may be an early indication of skin cancer. For this reason, Integrity Ink recommends our customers to see a dermatologist or physician before proceeding with laser treatment.
Age spots come in all different sizes and are often seen on the hands, face, shoulders, and arms. While most brown spots are harmless, many people seek laser treatment to remove their pigmented lesions and reveal a more youthful complexion.
Our Astanza Trinity laser delivers safe and effective treatment to successfully lighten and remove unwanted pigmented lesions from the skin. During treatment, the laser emits intense pulses of light energy onto the unwanted brown spot. The excess pigment absorbs the energy, causing it to heat up and shatter while leaving the surrounding skin tissue unharmed.
Over the weeks following a treatment, a small scab may form. Allow the scab to heal and flake off naturally to reveal lighter, less pigmented skin. Most patients see significant fading and complete removal within 1 to 3 treatments. Treatments are very quick and dependent on the number of age spots being treated.
Integrity Ink encourages clients to apply sun screen daily following treatment to prevent additional pigmented lesions from forming.
