I read with interest the Editorial Review regarding the use of laser in the treatment of pigmented lesions.1 I share the authors' concern that there is a lack of long-term studies regarding the use of laser in the treatment of nevomelanocytic nevi. Therefore, the issue is whether one should use laser to treat these lesions at all or be selective, as suggested by the authors of the article.
