Treatment of telangiectases and other benign vascular lesions with the 577 nm pulsed dye laser.


BACKGROUND:This study was undertaken to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of the 577 nm pulsed dye laser in the treatment of various vascular lesions of the face. OBJECTIVE:Our purpose was to make observations on the effects of different variables that could affect response. METHODS:Ninety-two adults with telangiectases of the face were sequentially selected for treatment according to a protocol previously established. Evaluation consisted of visual inspection by two investigators, and before and after photographs at 2-months intervals. A few patients with other vascular lesions were also treated and reported. RESULTS:Ninety-one percent of the patients (84 of 92) showed good to excellent response after a single treatment. Recurrence occurred in 2%. Atrophy of the skin occurred in 2%. Venous lakes, pyogenic granulomas, and mucosal vascular malformations showed significant improvement. CONCLUSION:The 577 nm pulsed dye laser is effective and safe for vascular lesions of the face.
