This 54 year old female patient had lived with this brown patch on her left cheek for many years. She had tried numerous over the counter creams and ointments with no success whatsoever. She was also concerned if the lesion was possibly cancerous. Dr. Crippen ruled-out the possibility of a malignancy and then we proceeded to treat the lesion to remove as much of the pigmentation as possible. It is not always possible to remove all pigmentation but in most cases we can make a very dramatic reduction in the amount of pigment visible to the naked eye which will give a very nice cosmetic result.
