Can you remove your mole? (aka: benign pigmented lesion)
Enlighten III by CUTERA is a new approach to treating benign pigmented lesions (moles). Initially developed for tattoo removal, it is an effective laser procedure that dramatically removes benign pigmented lesions without the risk of downtime.
Benign Pigmented Lesions are an abnormality in the skin that most of us face at one point or another. Moles occur when cells in our skin grow in a cluster instead of spreading evenly throughout the skin. When these cells cluster, they make a pigment that darkens during adolescence, after being exposed to the sun or during pregnancy.
At Raw Canvas, we help our patients say goodbye to their benign pigmented lesions using the Enlighten III Laser. It works on benign pigmented lesions by breaking down the pigments using concentrated laser light. The laser light provides a strong, non-thermal, photomechanical effect that shatters the pigment clusters of your mole, allowing new skin to emerge evenly. Since different skin types require different wavelengths, the Enlighten III laser’s wavelengths of 1064 nm and 532 nm and 670 nm enable the customization of the treatment to suit any skin type.
The treatment is not painful and does not require any anesthesia or medication. When the device is passed over your skin, you will feel a heating sensation common to most non-invasive laser treatments. The Enlighten treatment for benign pigmented lesions takes no more than 15 minutes per treatment area. For most patients, full results will vary depending on the lesion. Immediately following treatment, you may feel some mild redness and swelling. The treated spots will get darker before they lighten. This could last seven to ten days.
