A few brown spots on skin is not a rare case. Freckles, "age spots", "liver spots" and various birthmarks are just a few of the commonly known marks, generally referred to as pigmented lesions. Although most brown spots are easily ignored, many are quite conspicuous and can detract from your skin's natural beauty.

Melanin (dark pigment in the skin) gives skin its color. We all have varying amounts of melanin.

Pigmented lesions are dark in colorbecause melanin is abnormally concentrated in one area of the skin. These deposition of melanin can be due to various factors. Some types may be present at birth, but most occur with age or as a result of overexposure to the sun's damaging rays.

Pigmented lesions can be successfully lightened or removed with modern laser technology. A laser removes pigmented lesions with the energy of light, leaving lighter color skin alone.

The Q-Switched YAG lasersare one of the most advanced lasers available for the removal of pigmented lesions. It provides a maximum removal of darker melanin pigment spots and leaves normal skin alone.
