Ablative Laser Resurfacing
Ablate means to the destroy and if the problem is destroyed then the overall impact will be good. People think that this treatment is very good as it will remove the spots and the dead skins . This laser treatment normally has the heat therapy and it also requires the healing time. This treatment will purposely heat up the dark spots and then make the wound . So when you are planing for this ablative treatment then, it will take around 2- 3 weeks and after that a complete rest is there for the long time.
Fractional Laser Rejuvenation
This treatment is for the age spots and hyper pigmentation. This is just opposite treatment than ablative laser treatment . In this treatment it will reduce the age spots through rejuvenation process. The heat applies to the age spots is less than the ablative process and the pain is also not there in this. The over all result of this treatment is less than the ablative process as it will not completely remove the spots but it will just lighten it and extra care is required in this treatment.
Photo Dynamic Therapy
This treatment is widely used and it is very expensive also. This treatment requires two steps , one step is to apply a paste of photo laser gel paste to the spots and the near by area for at least 30 mins and in the next step apply the laser directly to the spot . In this treatment the laser beam go inside the spot and remove the spot and also rejuvenate the skin. The healing time is less because the photo laser gel will reduce the chance of damaged to the skin. This is used for the uneven skin tone , pigmentation and age wrinkles also.

This treatment will not give any wound so it requires no healing time . This also rejuvenate the skin, this is extensively used for the skin toning and pigments . This is very expensive treatment as it requires the highly advance light emission equipments.
Laser Re Surfing
This treatment is used for the age spot and the pigments of the skin. If the pigment and the age spot are more and so deep in the skin then it is not easy to remove all the spots because the laser can harm the tissue. So we use the laser re surfing in this we remove the layer of the skin and apply another one. There are two types of the laser re surfing one is carbon di oxide and other is erbium. This is also very good for the burn skin.
