What is Pigmentation?
Pigmentation, Lentignes, Age-Spots, Freckles, Cafe au Lait and Birthmarks - are all descriptions of a concentration of color of pigment cells in the skin.
How does the Laser work with Pigmentation?
The Laser Beam absorbs the Melanin present in the Pigment Cells, breaking them down resulting in a Lighter, Paler Skintone, which will blend naturally into the surrounding area.
The surrounding skin will not be affected.
How many treatments will I need?
Usually between 2-6 treatments are required, one treatment every week.

Dr Gary sees every patient himself and believes in personalized care. The Doctor does not employ any physician assistants, nurse practitioners, or other physician substitutes to do his treatment. He sees every patient himself at every visit.
A significant percentage of my Dermatology Conditions are diagnosed on listening to medical history of the patient alone, a further percentage on examination and the remainder on further investigation and my patients teach me the rest. It is clear to me that history and examination skills remain at the very core of my dermatology practice. Older Dermatologists like myself rely on history and physical to a greater degree than the younger dermatologists. I think that the pendulum has swung too far towards all these cosmetic procedures where the younger dermatologists are just doing cosmetic procedures and not listening to their patients. This is an important point because if the Dermatologist does not spend enough time with the patient the cosmetic procedures will not work.
