The removal of skin pigmentation is performed with a 0.5 msec short pulse of the Alexandrite laser. During the treatment, short pulses of light are applied to the skin in a series of spots using a pencil-shaped handpiece, treating only the lesion. Cold air cooling is used to prevent skin burns. The procedure may cause slight discomfort.
Ability to work, home care
The treatment does not affect daily lifestyle but avoiding the sun and using sunscreen intensively is recommended for 14 days. The treated area will temporarily darken, which can be easily hidden with concealer, and will fade within a week or two.
Number of treatments
Improvement can be seen after the first session but repeat treatments may be needed after 4-6 weeks to achieve the desired effect.
