Age spots, liver spots, freckles are all pigmented lesions and are usually caused by an abnormal concentration of melanin, the pigment that gives our skin its natural colouring. Most of these pigmented areas get darker with age and exposure to sun light.
The melanin in pigmented lesions is reduced when laser at the right wavelength and intensity passes through the skin. The absorption of light energy causes the melanin to reduce and shrink by the conversion of light energy into heat.
Intense Pulse light with Cutera Prowave 560® is a gentle yet powerful way to remove most of these spots, leaving your skin looking natural and healthy.
