Pigmented Lesions

There are some pigmented birthmarks which respond well to laser treatment but often these are better excised.

Benign pigmented lesions may respond to laser treatment and at Stratum Clinic, Oxford we have a Q-switched Nd-YAG laser which may produce significant if not complete lightening. Patients having this type of treatment are advised to be very careful about future sun protection and avoidance. This type of laser can also be used to treat tattoos and fungal nail infections.
