Pigmented Lesions

What are pigmented lesions?

Pigmented lesions are areas on your skin that appear darker than your overall complexion. Freckles, dark spots, and areas of hyperpigmentation are quite common, especially in older adults. It’s a good idea, however, to have new lesions — especially raised lesions, such as moles that are red, blue, or black — evaluated by a medical professional to rule out skin cancer.

What causes pigmented lesions?

Freckles, dark spots, and patches of darker skin known as melasma can be caused by a variety of factors, such as:

  • Aging
  • Hormonal changes
  • Sun exposure
  • Genetics

These blemishes can make your complexion look dull and uneven, but the aesthetics experts at Aesthetics By Family Care can reduce the appearance of pigmented lesions to brighten and revitalize your skin. 


How does pigmented lesion removal work?

The specialists at Aesthetics By Family Care use the innovative Alma™ laser to reduce the appearance of pigmented lesions. The Alma system features multiple laser wavelengths as well as intense-pulse light therapy to address pigmented lesions in all skin types and skin tones, including dark skin.

The Alma’s focused light energy breaks down melanin, the pigment that clusters to form age spots and other such blemishes. Once the melanin has been broken into tiny particles, your body quickly eliminates it through its natural healing process.

How many treatments will I need?

Many types of lesions can be significantly reduced in just one treatment, but sometimes a series of treatments is necessary for optimal results. 

During your initial consultation, your Aesthetics By Family Care expert discuss your treatment goals with you in detail and examines your skin carefully under magnification. Your expert then designs a customized treatment plan to achieve optimal results based on your individual needs.

When will my results be visible?

Because the Alma laser works with your natural immune process, it can take a little time for your body to eliminate the excess melanin through your lymphatic system. Typically, full results become visible within a few weeks of your treatment.
