The elimination of skin spots and discolorations is possible with the use of CO2 Laser or Laser Nd: Erb. These methods include ablation (in the first case) or vaporisation (in the second) of the lesion; one or the other method will be chosen according to the ‘stain’ that we have to treat, distinguishing senile spots, keratoses, melasms or cloasms.

A careful preliminary study of the lesion is therefore essential.

Treatment is usually performed under topical anaesthesia; at the end of the session the patient can resume normal daily activities, taking care not to expose the treated area to sunlight and applying a high SPF to the area.
