Paper Abstract

Cutaneous angiodysplasias are currently treated by Argon, CW-Dye or Pulsed Dye Lasers. Green light at 532 nm is highly specific for hemoglobin-laden vessels. Therefore, this wavelength was evaluated on different cutaneous angiodysplasias. One hundred thirty-five (135) patients with either port wine stains (94) or facial telangiectasia (41) were treated with a 532 nm laser coupled to an automatic delivery system. Treatments were performed using the minimal blanching technique. The average fluence was 17 J/cm-2 for port wine stains and 15 J/cm-2 for facial telangiectasia. Pathologic scars were not reported for any patient. Sixty percent (60%) of the patients with port wine stains achieved good or excellent results after a 12-month period of observations. Ninety percent (90%) of the patients with facial telangiectasia achieved good or excellent results after a 12-month period of observation.
