Melasma is fairly common in Asian patients with a dark skin tone. It has long been known for its recalcitrance to any form of treatment.
Hyperpigmentation means an excess of pigment. There are several types of hyperpigmentation seen in humans:
– disease-related hyperpigmentation
– pregnancy-related hyperpigmentation
– enzymatic deficiencies
Epidermal and dermal pigmented lesions
The MedliteTM C Series is perfect for treating a wide variety of epidermal and dermal pigmented lesions, including age spots, solar lentigines, café-au-lait lesions and dermal melanycytosis. Many superficial lesions can be removed quickly and become a huge profit center in your practice, as well as making a significant difference in the lives of your patients.
Epidermal Pigmented Lesions
Both the 532 nm and 650 nm wavelengths are excellent for the removal of epidermal pigmented lesions. Research has been conducted by a wide range of notable doctors of The Laser Center of Virginia, Virginia Beach, VA. and New Jersey Pasack Valley Hospital Skin Laser Center. One treatment typically showed excellent clearing with no incidence of hypopigmentation.
Dermal Pigmented Lesions
|Laser System:||MedliteTM C3|
The 1064 nm wavelength of the MedliteTM is extremely effective in the treatment of dermal melaynocytosis such as Nevus of Ota and abberant Mongolian spot. Extensive early research was conducted by physicians in Asia, with thousands of patients treated to date. Multiple treatments were spaced at 2-month intervals or greater. No permanent side effects were observed, and only occasional transient hyperpigmentation was noted, usually resolving within two months. In all cases, lesions lightened after each treatment, and significant lightening occurred after multiple treatment
