What types of skin discoloration are treatable using a laser?

Laser-assisted treatments are making a tremendous mark in the medical industry. One of the newest applications is to the skin, and the following conditions are safely and effectively treatable through lasers: Vascular lesions. These blemishes, including birthmarks, port wine stains, rosacea, and spider veins are a result of abnormal blood vessels. Benign pigmented lesions. These are caused by a concentration of natural pigmentation, as in melasma, freckles, age spots, and sun spots.

How does the laser remove skin discolorations?

For a vascular lesion the laser light’s heat will seal and shrink the precise blood vessels of the blemish. Over time, the body’s natural processes will heal the area with fewer vessels and a more normal color. In cases of large or very dark blemishes, complete removal may not be achieved.

The removal of pigmented lesions and tattoos is slightly different. Short, concentrated beams of light penetrate the skin’s surface and are absorbed by deeper cells containing the natural pigment or tattoo ink. These cells will rupture and release the pigment or ink which is then removed by the body. It should be noted that not all ink colors in a tattoo respond the same laser treatment. Darker colors have the best results, but lighter colors seem to respond poorly.
