Types of Pigmented Lesions

Senile Lentigo (Age Spots)

Senile lentigo (age spots) is a small, flat brown spot, a few millimeters in diameter, typically found on exposed areas of the skin. They are flat or slightly raised and can appear anywhere as one ages.

Freckles are small spots, about 2 to 5 millimeters in size, found on the parts of the skin most exposed to the sun. They are benign, flat, and range in color from light brown to dark brown.

Melasma is characterized by hyperpigmentation of the skin due to internal inflammation on the face. Brown spots appear on the forehead, cheeks, nose, and upper lip. It can be caused by pregnancy, hormonal imbalance, sun exposure, genetics, or laser treatment.


The PicoSure laser is the only laser approved by the FDA to treat melasma.


Melanin gives us the color of our skin. Pigmented lesions, including sunspots, age spots, and brown spots, appear dark because melanin is concentrated in an area of the skin. Most pigmented lesions come from sun exposure, while some patients are born with them. Hormonal changes can also cause changes in skin pigmentation.

Lasers remove a variety of unwanted pigments. Age spots, freckles, and brown spots can all be eliminated with PicoSure. During a free consultation, your practitioner will set up a treatment regimen to help you quickly achieve pigment-free skin.

Improving the appearance of your skin and achieving a more youthful look by removing pigmented lesions will only require a few treatments. Darker, deeper, and larger pigmented lesions may require additional treatments; however, during the consultation, your practitioner will discuss treatment expectations with you.

Most patients find the procedure tolerable and do not require numbing cream or anesthesia. PicoSure delivers energy in ultra-short bursts, and patients often compare the laser pulse to a thin elastic snap.

After the procedure, the treated area may feel tender. It’s important to keep the area clean and avoid any irritation. Your practitioner will provide you with additional post-care instructions to ensure a speedy recovery.
