Melanin as a chromophore is highly absorbed by the 532nm wavelength which makes the 532nm laser ideal for targeting melanin.

 

For the removal of solar lentigines and ephelides (freckles), the objective is to deliver laser energy that is highly targeted and absorbed in a short pulse within the epidermis and to minimize thermal diffusion to surrounding tissue.

 

The Nd:YAG laser is an effective tool for removing well-defined pigmentation. The laser is passed over the affected skin in order to break up the pigment into smaller particles.

 

This makes it possible for the body to process and remove the melanin causing the darker spots. Nd:YAG laser is effective against age and liver spots, freckles.

 

It also helps stimulate collagen production for smoother skin. Patients often only need one treatment, making this a time saving way to correct pigmentation.
