Paper Abstract

An argon-pumped tunable dye laser tuned to 585 nm was used to treat clinically typical cherry angiomas in a preliminary study. A spot size of 0.1 mm and low power (0.1 - 0.15W) in the continuous mode was used for treatment. Results ranged from decrease in size of the cherry angioma to complete regression. In all cases, there was minimal to no scarring. Further study in the treatment of elevated cutaneous vascular lesions with the continuous wave dye laser seems warranted.
