Pigmented lesion (brown spots)
At MediSpa laser Incognito we use the BBL™ (Broad Band pulsed Light) laser and when needed, the ProFractional™ laser, to lighten or remove pigmented lesions. Before any treatment we will examine your skin. If necessary, we will biopsy any lesion of concern. Only benign (non-cancerous) lesions are treated with the lasers.
After a treatment with the BBL™ laser, your brown spots often appear darker. The darkened tissue flakes off in approximately 7 to 10 days. The ProFractional™ laser removes small micro-channels of the target spot and reduces the overall size.
In general, laser technology works well on superficial pigmented lesions caused by the sun. It is less effective for deeper skin spots (moles, melasma due to pregnancy/hormonal fluctuations). These lesions may require a greater number of sessions. Surgical excision is also a possibility should there be no improvement. Sun protection is critical for long term prevention of further lesions or darkening of any pre-existing spots. Dr. Thompson and Dr. Germain and their experienced team, will guide through the treatment possibilities.
