Q-Switched YAG lasers (Medlite C6 and Alex TriVantage) are two of the most technologically advanced lasers used in the world today for removing pigmented lesions. These lasers deliver short pulses of very intense laser light to the melanin in sunspots, age spots, and other benign pigmented lesions. The treatment fragments and removes the pigment, resulting in more youthful looking skin. The energy has little or no effect on the surrounding skin.

Q-Switched lasers are ideal for removing brown age spots, “liver spots,” freckles, and other brown birthmarks, such as cafe-au-lait spots, and Nevus of Ota.  They are also very useful when it comes to laser tattoo removal and certain laser hair removal treatments.
