Until recently the only procedures for pigmented lesions (spots) were dermabrasion, cryosurgery or plastic surgery; but these techniques have the risk of scarring or hypo pigmented spots (white).
Topical creams improve some injuries but do not provide a substantial clearance to them, and when the lesion is deep it lacks of effectiveness.
