AGE AND SUN SPOTS
What are age spots or sun spots ?
Age spots, also called “lesions,” are well-defined, uniformly colored areas of brown pigment that generally appear on the hands, face,neck, and chest.
What causes them ?
Pigmented lesions are often caused by and abnormal production of melanin, which becomes visible on the skin’s surface. These spots are the result of prior sun exposure.
How does the laser work ?
- Long pulsed laser energy delivered at 3ms closely matches the Thermal Relaxation Time (TRT) of melanocytes.
- Heating of the melanocytes in begin pigmented lesions causes thermal damage, resulting in removal of these types of lesions.
