Benign pigmented lesions
Benign Pigmented Lesions

  • Discoloration caused by high concentration of melanocytes in a particular area

    • Treatments include cover up with makeup, or painful removal by dermabrasion or cryosurgery

    • Mostly for pediatric treatments or as an adjunct procedure in skin rejuvenation for adults

  • Lasers remove pigmented lesions through photoaccoustic effects

    • Melanin absorbs laser energy more intensely than the surrounding tissue which leads to fracturing of the pigment and melanocyte cell death

    • Fractured melanin/melanocyte is removed by the immune system


Nevus of ota
Nevus of Ota

  • First described in 1861

  • Bluish hyperpigmentation along the first or second branches of trigeminal nerve

  • Most patients have no family history

  • Age of onset- perinatal period or puberty

  • Significant predominance among women

    • Male to female ratio 1:4.8

  • Female hormones suggested as potent stimuli

  • Other stimuli include infection, trauma, or ultraviolet light exposure
