Melanin is what gives our skin its color. Dark skinned people have more melanin in their skin than light skinned people. Pigmented lesions have an abnormal concentration of melanin in a particular area. This may be present at birth, such as brown pigmented birthmarks and café-au-lait spots.
Another cause is excessive sun exposure resulting in freckles and brown sun/age spots (Solar Lentigines). The GentleMax laser easily treats these pigmented lesions.
