The Laser Pigmentation Removal Process
What to Expect?
You will meet with a member of our team for a consultation prior to your laser Pigmentation removal at I AM Medical Spas and Laser Center in Troy to discuss your specific condition. We will address any questions or concerns you have and provide you with any necessary background information before we schedule your procedure.
What to Expect During the Treatment?
The length of each session varies depending on the area, but on average, each session lasts about 20 minutes. The treatment is painless, though you may feel a slight warming on your skin. After being exposed to laser light, the skin will take on a grayish or white color for a short period of time. Bruising is more likely to occur in areas with a high concentration of pigment.

Who is a candidate for laser pigmentation removal?
Brown spots form when skin melanocytes (the cells responsible for making pigment) produce and deposit melanin in an uncontrolled manner. While some skin lesions are present at birth, the vast majority appear with age or as a result of prolonged sun exposure (age spots, freckles, lentigines). Pigmented lesions are relatively harmless, but they can diminish your skin's natural beauty. Most of these lesions can now be effectively faded with lasers, thanks to advancements in medical technology present in our Italian engineered Cartessa EVO Light Laser.
