Laser has been used before to treat skin pathologies in 1963 from Dr. Leon Goldman. Even though Goldman has firstly used ruby laser to treat the skin, lasers have been revolutionized in the ‘80s, from the theory of selective photothermolysis from Anderson and Parrish.
Nd YAG laser, with a 1064 beam length has been successfully used (KTP, PDL, IPL), in facial capillaries, reticular veins (legs), and has proven great results.
With the usage of long-length pulses the superior elimination is achieved, leaving behind, minimal purpuric, post inflammatory, immediate, without hyperpigmentation (scars). A 26%-50% result can be seen depending on the localization, presence, 51%-75% if these problems are less visible. The definite result can be seen after 13 weeks of treatment.
Telangiectasia, facial erythema; are normally worsened by sun damage, skin reddening is more visible, usually erythema (reddening) of the nose and cheeks happens, it may happen in the forehead and chin also. Acne rosacea also is the same pathology. Nd YAG 1064 nm laser is the most effective solution in order to gain pleasant results compared to other machines.
This laser is also effectively used for legs telangiectasia, reticular veins, and has proven great results.
Pediatric vascular lesions (red spots from birth), capillary malformations, hemangiomas, port wine stains, are psychologically and socially disturbing for patients. PWS can happen to 0.3%-0.5% of newborns. Generally port wine stain has resulted in visible clarity and less side effects, it is safe and effective, the treatment of even the most superficial hemangiomas with laser, result in positive feedback.
The treatment in children less than a year old is more effective and requires less sessions than older people, therefore doctors recommend curing the problem as soon as possible to lower the psychologic effect of the birthmark, and avoid hypertrophy with time passing.
Different from PWS, hemangiomas are benign proliferations of the endothelial tissue. These cardiovascular problems happen in the neonatal phase. It affects about 1.1%-2.6% of newborns and three times more often in females than males. The origin is unknown; probably a mistake in the first trimester related to vasculogenesis and/or angiogenesis as a result of the embolization of placenta cells. It is thought as of an autosomal dominant connection heritage.
The limitations of hemangioma treatment types; it depends from the location, the depth (superficial, deep or mixed), the size/mass, actual lesion’s phase (diffusion, uprise), functional impact, disponibility of treatments (ex. Laser), parents’ inquiries and early treatments with extensional surgery often can lead to
Angiokeratoma is a group of diseases of blood vessels which are very rare, clinically, blue-reddish papules, with scaled surface, which converge in plates. Fordyce’s angiokeratoma is a much common form, they are located in the genital zone of breasts. They are benign, usually asymptomatic lesions, but they can inherit blood spontaneously because of traumas.
