Paper Abstract

Lasers are an accepted modality in the treatment of various superficial blood vessel malformations. Unfortunately use of the continuous wave lasers such as the argon and argon tunable dye lasers has been limited by the associated risk of scarring which ranges from five to thirty percent. The risk of scarring is greater in people with fine skin such as that in children and in certain more delicate body sites such as the upper lip and extremities. The extremities are a particularly difficult site to treat being more susceptible to scarring.
