Types of lesions treated with laser therapy
Any benign spot on the face or hands created by a concentration of melanin, can be treated.
Most commonly, this includes:
- Solar lentigines (also called age spots, liver spots, or sun spots)
- Café au lait birthmarks
Dr. Ostad customizes a treatment plan for optimal results. Your strategy could include just a few sessions for sun spots, or up to a dozen to fade a birthmark, at one-month intervals. Once a sun spot is completely removed, it won’t come back. However, sun exposure will continue to cause new spots to develop, so high quality sunscreen should be worn daily.
