Café au Lait spots

Café Au Lait on a man's hand showing clear discolouration

The term 'café au lait spots' or 'café au lait macules' (CALM) originates from the French expression meaning 'coffee with milk,' describing the light brown hue of these marks. Typically appearing at birth, these hyperpigmented lesions are most prevalent in infants and young children. Nevertheless, they may intensify in darkness over time, particularly with age and exposure to sunlight.

With the help of the SmartPICO laser system, the gold standard in aesthetic treatment systems and one of the most flexible on the market, we are able to treat your café au lait spots safely, effectively, and stress-free at VIZAGE.

Client satisfaction

“I'd been toying with the idea of lip filler for AGES but had always managed to talk myself out of it - I was worried it wouldn't look natural on me! However, Dr Jasmin is AMAZING! I only had my lips done yesterday but the swelling has already reduced and I love the shape. They look really natural and I can't stop staring at them! Dr Jasmin is also a really lovely person - she took the time to listen to what I wanted and also gave me good advice on things other than my procedure. She is a qualified dentist too, so I knew that she was the best of the best and knew her way around a face! Thank you so so much - I can't wait to visit you again. You're truly the best at what you do and lovely too! Elisha x
