Pigment Removal


What is Laser Pigmentation Removal?

Laser Pigmentation Removal works to safely and effectively reduce the appearance of freckles, pigmentation, and age spots. The laser targets only the pigmented lesion in the skin which absorbs the light, without damaging the surrounding skin. The laser heats up and shatters the pigment. The pigment is then drawn to the surface without harming the surrounding tissue.
