Laser Spot Treatment

A smooth, vibrant, blemish-free complexion contributes to a youthful and beautiful appearance. When we think of skin quality, a smooth and vibrant complexion is the first thing that comes to mind. Smoothness implies a complexion free from acne, with an even tone and devoid of blemishes—a beautiful, radiant skin. While factors like eyes, nose, facial contour, and lips play a crucial role in evaluating facial beauty, skin quality is equally essential. One of the significant concerns individuals face, leading them to seek treatment, is the appearance of spots, especially on the facial region.


Spots can arise due to various reasons, with sun exposure, pregnancy, hormonal changes, tanning beds, chemical substances, and incorrect applications being among the primary causes. Spots can manifest as flat-colored, black, or brown, with brown spots often resulting from changes and increases in pigment cell activity. These blemishes are more common in individuals with fair skin, excessive sun exposure, those aged 40 and above, or individuals who have given birth. While spots primarily disturb patients aesthetically, it’s crucial to note that sunspots pose a long-term risk of developing into tumors. The most commonly practiced effective treatments for spot-related issues include laser spot and skin rejuvenation treatments, as well as spot mask applications.


How is Laser Spot Treatment Conducted?

In laser treatments, issues such as skin rejuvenation and problems like spot marks and burn-related skin concerns are addressed by applying laser shots to the affected area, reducing and eliminating spots and acne scars. It opens up the superficial skin color of cells experiencing a color change, treating colorless moles and blemishes. Laser treatment stimulates stem cells and collagen in the deep skin tissue through heat during the procedure, promoting healing. Nowadays, laser treatments effectively address congenital or acquired skin pigment disorders. Depending on the patient’s needs, laser treatments can be planned as a single session or, at intervals of at least 4-6 weeks, ranging from 3 to 6 sessions. To contribute to skin rejuvenation, different treatments can be performed in the same session. After the procedure, it is essential for the patient to avoid exposure to sunlight and tanning beds. Short-term redness and irritation may be observed post-treatment, and the application of sunscreen is recommended. Laser systems used for this purpose include:


1.Q Switched


  • KTP
  • ruby
  • Alexandrite Nd-YAG lasers


  1. Long Pulse Interval


  • KTP
  • ruby

Q-switched lasers are the ideal lasers for the treatment of such issues, providing cleansing without damaging the skin. The most commonly used laser systems for this purpose are Q-switched KTP, Nd-YAG, and Ruby lasers. While 1-2 sessions are generally sufficient for surface problems such as freckles and sunspots, several sessions may be required for deeply situated spots. With recently developed application techniques, Q-switched lasers can also achieve very satisfying results for the treatment of spots, particularly those on the face, which many women complain about, called Melasma (Chloasma). Sun-induced spots can reappear as new spots if exposed to sunlight again. Therefore, it is necessary to avoid sunbathing or artificial light sources for tanning after such procedures. Pre-procedural pain can be reduced by applying an anesthetic cream. A waiting period of 30-45 minutes is necessary for the anesthesia to take effect. While the duration of the procedure varies depending on the extent of the problem, it generally ranges between 3-20 minutes.


In very extensive lesions, the duration may be longer.

Sun protection is essential for at least 1 month before and after the procedure. Therefore, such spot procedures are mostly performed in the short days and cloudier weather of autumn and winter.


The use of aspirin and iron supplements should be stopped one week before the procedure. After the procedure, there may be redness, swelling with redness, scabbing, and focal bleeding in the area where the laser is applied. Therefore, if the area can be covered, it is appropriate to cover it.
