BACKGROUND Conventional therapies for deep cutaneous vascular anomalies have demonstrated poor efficacy and many side effects. New laser systems offer greater potential to treat these difficult lesions, but the lack of specific treatment guidelines has restricted consistent success. OBJECTIVE To establish a rational, user-friendly algorithm that incorporates basic components of deep vascular lesions to define the correct laser settings required for safe, effective, and reproducible treatment… CONTINUE READING
