Practitioners’ Guide to Pigmented Lesion Laser Removal

pigmented lesion laser removal

Various factors, including sun overexposure or longer-term sun damage, genetics, and aging, can cause dark spots or pigmented cosmetic irregularities on the skin. Although pigmented lesions do not pose a threat to one’s health, they can be a cause of self-consciousness. As the medical aesthetic industry grows and the demand for procedures such as pigmented lesion laser removal increases, understanding how to optimize your aesthetic laser practice to deliver the best clinical results is important. This article outlines strategies practitioners can utilize to increase patient satisfaction, average medical spa revenue, and overall profitability of their aesthetic laser practice.


Pigmented Lesion Laser Removal

One of the fastest, safest, and most effective methods of pigmented lesion removal is laser therapy. Key examples of common pigmented lesions include freckles, moles, age spots, café-au-lait spots, sunspots, Nevus of Ota, Nevus of Ito, and Mongolian spots – among others. Pigmented lesion laser removal is only intended for cosmetic purposes and safe for benign lesions; having a medical professional, preferably a dermatologist, check the intended treatment area and clear it for laser therapy is an important step for the overall safety and efficacy of the pigmented lesion laser removal.

Pigmented lesion laser removal includes using a high-intensity beam of light to target and break down the pigmented cells in the lesion. Over time, the lesion will fade and eventually disappear completely. Laser removal for pigmented lesions and similar cosmetic pigmentation concerns only takes about one to three sessions for desired results.

Pigmented lesions are something nearly all people deal with, particularly in older individuals. By offering pigmented lesion laser removal, practitioners can serve their community and provide a lucrative service. If you’re not currently providing pigmented lesion removal at your aesthetic laser practice, consider investing in an FDA-cleared, medical-grade laser machine.

Q-Switched Lasers for Pigmented Lesion Removal

Q-switched lasers are one of the most common types of laser devices proven to provide exceptional results for all skin types when it comes to pigmented lesion removal and cosmetic pigmentation correction. Regardless if the aesthetic laser device utilizes nanosecond or picosecond technology, both lasers can efficiently remove pigmented lesions.

The Q-switched laser machine targets the pigmentation in the lesion. The skin cells containing excess melanin are absorbed by the laser energy, get heated up, and dissipate – leaving the surrounding skin tissue unaffected. The body processes the skin cell particles and flushes them out naturally through the immune system, revealing smoother, clearer, even-toned skin. Procedural times for pigmentation correction and pigmented lesion removal vary but are overall very short. A small age spot could be removed in less than a minute, while larger pigmented lesion concerns such as birthmarks may take up to several minutes. Typically speaking, aesthetic medical practitioners can service clients from intake time to walking out the door in 15 minutes or less.
