At Vancouver Medi Spa the Er: YAG laser is used for the ablation of keratoses, moles, and other pigmented lesions, enabling the removal of the epidermis and superficial dermis in a controlled and relatively bloodless manner.
Lasers are a simple, fast, effective and safe tool for removing a wide variety of benign pigmented lesions, such as freckles, age spots, birthmarks, moles, certain vascular lesions, ephelides, melasma, seborrheic and actinic keratoses.
Clinical studies have shown that Er: YAG lasers are very effective for the treatment of keratoses, with the clinical and histological improvement of up to 93% after just one treatment.
Some of the most common questions that patients ask dermatologists are skin lesions. Skin lesions are remarkably common and the overwhelming majority of them are benign. However, where such lesions occur on the face they can be unpleasant and cause distress to many people. Among the most common of such lesions are Seborrheic and Actinic Keratoses, and Nevi (moles).
