Abstract

Lasers can be used to treat lentigines, café au lait macules, and nevi such as a Becker's nevus, nevus spilus, and nevus of Ota. For lesions residing in the dermis, higher fluences, larger spot sizes, and longer wavelengths can be used; however, these more aggressive parameters have a higher risk of iatrogenic injury, especially in the epidermis.
