This 70 year old patient had a slow-growing brown spot on her left cheek that was concerning to her and her physician. We saw this patient and investigated for a malignancy through the use of dermoscopy and biopsy of the lesion. Our results showed no current evidence of malignancy so we proceeded with removal of the pigmentation. We accomplished dramatic improvements using a combination of our CO2 laser and our pigment specific lasers. This type of lesion needs to be followed up regularly to make sure there are no changes towards malignancy in the future.
