Pigment lasers target melanin (brown pigment) and are very effective for problems like sun-spots and freckles.

The pigment lasers used at SkinCentral are the Cynosure Accolade laser (Q-switch 755nm Alexandrite) and the Laserscope Gemini laser (532nm KTP).

Accolade, being a Q-Switch laser, offers a more thorough removal of melanin and can be used to erase tattoos (blue, green, brown and black). It penetrates deeper into the skin so it is also effective for blemishes like Hori's Nevus and Nevus of Ota. Gemini is a long pulsed laser and represents a gentler alternative for more superficial pigment blemishes, as post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation (a reaction causing a temporary brown-mark that lasts a few months) is less likely with this laser.

After treatment, the treated blemishes will form dark scabs that will disappear within one week.

Besides treating individual pigment blemishes, as part of our Laser Facial procedure, the whole face can be treated for a more even complexion.
