The 532 nm wavelength available with the MedLite lasers is an excellent way to treat pigmented lesions. One treatment with a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser typically shows excellent clearing with a very low incidence of hypopigmentation. The MedLite YAG laser specifically removes pigment cells from the skin with minimal side effects. The procedure literally takes less than one minute with minimal pain. Anesthesia is not required for this procedure. In one week, the brown spot lightens up dramatically.
