Fotona’s StarWalker laser is the perfect tool for treating a wide range of pigmented lesions, enabling treatments for everything from nevi (moles) and vascular lesions to ephelides, sunspots and melasma.
Superficial lesions can be treated most effectively with the 532 nm wavelength, while the 1064 nm wavelength can be used to target deeper lesions.
Essentially pigmentation indicates areas of the skin that have become a darker in colour than the surrounding skin, this can result in an uneven looking appearance.
Sun exposure is the greatest factor with the emergence of sunspots, freckles and other skin irregularities and unevenness.
Pigmentation can develop in a number of different ways, including freckles, sunspots (solar lentigenes), melasma, sebhorrheric keratosis and birth marks.
Pigmentation can be exacerbated by ongoing unprotected sun exposure, heat trauma, the use of inappropriate products on the skin and some medications.
