Removal of Pigmentation by Laser
Removal of pigmented spots by laser or intense pulsed light (IPL)
Increased pigmentation is alterations of skin color, including pink or brown spots on the face or other body parts. They usually appear in women between 30 to 50 years of age. Apart from the main reason which is direct UV rays, pigmentation is affected by wrong cosmetic products, some medications, and hereditary factors.
Laser as well as IPL generates a certain broadband optic fiber which in its turn emits energy absorbed by skin pigment, melanin. High thermal energy destroys melanin. Thus, various pigmented formations are removed.
