This is how pigment spots develop
What are pigmentation spots?
Pigment spots are medically harmless, but they are often perceived as unattractive and therefore a cosmetic problem, especially since they usually appear on the most visible areas of skin, on the hands, face and neckline. Whether congenital pigmentary disorders, inherited freckles (ephelids) or pigmentary disorders acquired over the years such as age spots (Lentigo senilis) or sun spots (Lentigo solaris) – all are caused by a disturbance of the even pigment production. The melanocytes responsible for the formation of the skin pigment melanin produce too many melanins, and these cause the dark spots. Dark pigmentation of the skin can also remain as a result of injuries to the skin, such as an insect bite or diseases like acne or shingles. Laser treatment gently dissolves the pigment accumulations and stimulates the formation of new healthy skin.
What happens when removing pigment spots with laser?
The laser activates the natural regeneration mechanisms of the skin and is considered the most modern method for gentle skin renewal and skin tightening. During the treatment with the high-frequency laser beam, the upper layers of skin are ablated and thus unwanted pigment spots are removed without damaging surrounding tissue. The thermal effect of the laser stimulates the regeneration of the skin. At the same time, the laser beam activates the production of collagen, resulting in a permanent tightening of the tissue. The treatment is particularly suitable for the removal of pigmentation or so-called age and sun spots, the pigmentation is gently removed and new skin is formed. A laser lift with the fractional carbon dioxide laser (CO2 laser) causes comprehensive skin renewal, smoothes and tightens the skin, thus ensuring an overall clearer skin appearance.
The treatment is suitable for smoothing medium-deep wrinkles and scars (e.g. acne scars), but also for removing pigmentation disorders (e.g. age spots, sun spots, melasma). The reduction of small wrinkles and the refinement of large-pored areas (large-pored skin) improves the entire skin structure, resulting in an overall fresher appearance.
Already after the first treatment, the skin appearance improves visibly: pigmentation spots, small wrinkles and superficial scars disappear. The laser treatment is almost painless and there is almost no downtime.

Removal of pigment spots with the CO2 laser: treatment procedure
The treatment procedure for the removal of pigment spots with CO2 laser in Vienna at Dermacare is explained in detail below. An anamnesis questionnaire is completed before each initial treatment. This allows possible risks to be identified and prevented.
This is followed by a detailed preliminary discussion with a dermatologist. Prepare yourself for the interview and talk openly about your wishes and expectations.
Digital photo / desinfection / anesthesia
Before each treatment a digital photo of your skin is taken to document your treatment progress in detail. The skin is desinfected and if necessary anesthetized with an anesthetic cream.
The skin area is then treated with the special CO2 laser. To make the treatment more pleasant, the skin is cooled with cold air.
Cooling of the lasered area
After the treatment, a cool pack is placed on the treated area for 10 minutes.
An antiseptic cream is applied to prevent inflammation.
The immediate reaction of the skin to the treatment is often slight redness and swelling, which disappears by itself. A thin crust then forms in the lasered region. For the post-treatment of the crust, ointments and creams are available to support the healing process of the skin.
Your treating doctors will provide you with comprehensive information on the follow-up treatment and care of the affected area and will be available to answer your questions at any time.
After the treatment, UV radiation should be avoided for several weeks, as it can promote unwanted pigmentation.
After about 4-6 weeks a follow-up treatment can be carried out if necessary.
