Laser technology is highly sought after and reliable in hyperpigmentation treatment. With hyperpigmentation, an individual develops spots of different sizes and quantity on the skin. These spots are distinct as they are dark brown in colour. Skin pigmentations are known as age spots, liver spots and brown spots. These are the terms used to describe the improper distribution of pigment known as melanin, in the outer layer of the skin. Harmful exposure to the sun and aging are a couple of the factors that can increase the risk of hyperpigmentation.

Laser pigmentation treatment aims at removing the pigmentation on the skin which is the reason for the spots. Another function of the laser treatment is to cease any further formation of melanin on the skin. The goal of the pigmentation treatment is to give the individual a smoother, youthful looking and even toned skin.

Laser treatment for pigmentation is mostly used on the facial skin. It can also be used on the other areas of the body that get affected due to sun exposure such as back, hands, arms, chest and shoulders.
