Laser effect on pigmented lesions.. Melanin is the target pigment where it is heated as a result of its high temperature by absorbing light from the laser

Painted lesions:
When treated with a pigmented lesion, the absorption of light is characteristic of melanin is the most important.
Melanin is the chromophore, which is heated as a result of high temperature by absorption of light from the laser to the degree of destruction of the lesion.
The surgeon chooses the wavelength that will be absorbed by the melanin.
Normally the wavelength in the range between blue / green is a required micon.
The wave within the blue boundary is highly absorbent (but more widespread) than the green.
Because of the increased likelihood of scarring with blue wavelengths, the ideal choice for pigmented lesions is green.
