Laser For Pigmented Lesions
Pigmented lesions basically refer to a disorder in or on the skin, which changes the appearance and color of the skin as compared to the other part of the skin. Lesions or patches are usually black or brown in color.
There is no risk of all such things in the laser removal of tattoo. The process is fairly simple. The tattoo is exposed to the laser rays which are absorbed by the tattoo paint. The rays destroy the tattoo ink molecules and hence remove the tattoo.
Usually 2 to 4 sittings are required for tattoo removal surgery.
Pigmented lesion is a type of cosmetic problem that can be treated by many therapies. Few things to keep in mind while avoiding pigmentation:
1. Keep skin away from the reach of the sun’s rays.
2. Use a sunscreen lotion every time when you go out in the heat.
3. Use pigmentation sprays, face washes and other medicines.
Generally, its treatment starts with medication and further techniques include:
1. Laser technique.
2. Carbon dioxide (CO2) laser technique.
3. Skin glowing techniques.
4. Q-Switch laser technique.
Regardless of the cause of the lesions, laser technique is one such non surgical option that is used for treating the pigmentation and moles. The pigmented lesion caused by the deposition of excess and unwanted melanin in one area of the skin is exposed to short pulse of visible laser light due to which the inner temperature of melanin gets raised up and cells producing much of melanin gets shattered.
After that body of the individual develops new cells replacing the old ones in that area; the pigmented region gets completely treated and appears like a normal one. Laser technique does not involve the usage of any operative instruments, is effective and time saving.
Pigmented lesions are generally caused by infection on or in the deeper layers of the skin and the excessive unwanted production of melanin. Other reasons that causes pigmentation are:
• HEAT Much exposure to heat or ultraviolet (UV) radiations is one of the prime reason that affects the melanocytes (the colour determining cells) resulting in pigmentation.
• INJURY Sometimes after getting injured, the wound still possesses slight inflammation and so this inflamed area develops into pigmentation further.
• DISEASE Certain diseases affect the colour of the skin like in cases of Jaundice. Later these become responsible for the formation of lesions.
Even Stress, poor circulation of blood and pregnancy are other factors that engender pigmentation. Also, the lesions can be precipitated by the improper functioning of the blood cells and hormonal imbalance.
