Combined dyspigmentation such as lentigines intermingled with freckles, or melasma with acquired bilateral nevus of Ota-like macules, are common among women in Taiwan. There are various lasers available, including Qswitched Nd-YAG laser, Q-switched alexandrite laser, Q-switched ruby laser, and pico laser. We conducted a literature review to understand the current practice of treatment for pigmented lesions in Taiwan.
