Just about everyone has minor marks or spots on various parts of their body. Some are there from birth, while others develop due to environmental factors. These spots are known medically as pigmented lesions, and are usually harmless, and only a matter of cosmetic concern. Nevertheless, some people prefer to have them removed. But what is the best way to get rid of pigmented lesions.
What are pigmented lesions?
Pigmented lesions are dark spots on the skin that are caused by the surplus production of melanin. Melanin gives the skin its color, and is produced by cells known as melanocytes. High concentrations of melanin often result from excess sun exposure, but some lesions are hereditary.Common types of pigmented lesions include freckles, age spots, and sun spots.
Best way to get rid of pigmented lesions
Laser technology is considered the best way to get rid of pigmented lesions. The laser energy is absorbed by the melanin in the spots, without harming the normal skin. The pigmented lesion will then fade over the following days.
