Brown spots are one of the quickest signs of aging and prolonged exposure to the sun. Men can have their brown spots removed at our office with a painless, state-of-the-art laser, Nordlys.
The treatment can be used on the face, neck, back, chest and hands.
Nordlys directs pulses of light into the epidermis, or superficial layer of the skin. The light is then absorbed by melanin in the pigmented lesion and is then converted into heat. The heat destroys the keratinocytes, which are cells within which melanin is stored.
Yes. The light produced by the system is controlled to ensure that the right amount of energy is used and only the targeted tissue is affected.
