Furthermore, this laser will not damage the skin surrounding the treated area.

Around 60 to 80% of age spots and freckles can be removed with one treatment. Some pigmentation or freckles may require two or more procedures to obtain the desired result.

Your cosmetic dermatologist will be able to advise you how many treatments to expect.
Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank recommends that his patients wait for a minimum of four weeks between treatments. This time period allows for maximum fading of the targeted skin pigmentation, so an accurate view of the results can be seen before performing the next procedure.
When Medlite laser is applied to the pigmented lesion, the cells with excessive pigments absorb the light. The tissue surrounding the pigmented lesions will not absorb the laser. As such, the cells are stimulated by the Medlite laser to eliminate the excessive pigments without damaging the surrounding tissues.
After the Medlite laser procedure, the area treated will appear white or pale after the first half hour, and you may experience warmness in the treated area. The treated area may become swollen and red for the remaining part of the day. Occasionally, the patient may observe a small amount of bleeding in the treated areas for some hours. The bleeding usually occurs on the cells where there was deep pigmentation, causing superficial bruising below the blemishes. For the initial few days, you may notice a crusting of the skin or superficial blisters, which should resolve on its own within a week. Within one or two weeks, your skin will return to its normal condition.
In the majority of the cases, age spots and freckles will fade away to such an extent that only you will be able to find them again. Usually, they are no longer visible to the casual observer.
