How do you treat moles, melasma and other pigmented lesions?

Fotona’s StarWalker Pico Nano laser

 Pico refers to the term picosecond which is one trillionth of a second. The pico laser is the fastest rate picosecond laser on the market. The pulses induce the remodelling of skin without heat making the safest treatment option available. The laser destroys pigment without burning the skin or stimulating cells, avoiding to produce more pigments.

Fotona’s SP Dynamis pro

Clinical studies have found that the Er:YAG lasers of this device produce an unmatched method for the removal of moles, up to 93% after just one treatment. It uses microns level precision to remove your lesion layer by layer to obtain the finest result.

What treatment do we not recommend?

We strongly advise against the use of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light Therapy). We don’t offer that treatment in our clinic as it is ineffective, potentially aggravate the area and intensify your symptoms.

What are melasma, moles and pigmented lesions?

Epidermal lesions are mostly caused by sun damage (freckles, solar lentigo, etc.), but also include:

  • Milias (shown here) appear as multiple small, white bumps (cysts) that are often located on the nose and cheeks.
  • Warts appear as hard bumps that can appear on any part of your skin. They start from a virus and are contagious.
  • Skin tags are a build up of tissue with a stem where the tag connects to your body and tends to be skin coloured.


Dermal lesions are located under the epidermis and can be hereditary, a result from allergic reactions, medications, sun exposure, and systemic diseases.

Lesions under the epidermis are called dermal lesions:

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation lesions are often caused by acne and other traumas or infections. It initially has a reddish colour when it’s inflamed and slowly disappears or turns into a brownish discoloration looking similar to melasma.


Melasma is a form of dermal hyperpigmentation that is caused and exacerbated by sun damage, genetics, ageing, and trauma.


Moles (a “nevus” or “nevi”) are skin growths made of cells such as melanocytes. They can be epidermal, dermal or mixed.
