Paper Abstract

Melanin bearing cutaneous lesions have been successfully treated with a cw argon laser applied through a Dermascan* delivery system. This device permits effective laser exposure times of the melanin bearing cells of 1 millisecond, thus limiting thermal diffusion damage to adjacent tissues. Clearing of the lesions occurs in one to two weeks, resulting in normal skin color and texture.
