BACKGROUND The long-pulsed 1064-nm Nd:YAG laser (employing varying spot sizes, pulse widths, and fluences) has gained popularity for treating lower extremity blue and red vessels that are less than 4 mm in diameter. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy of high-power 50-ms 1064 Nd:YAG laser in the treatment of class I-III lower extremity vessels. METHODS Ten female patients (mean age of 39 years) had a 5-cm2 area of veins measuring 0.2 to 3 mm in diameter treated with up to three treatment… CONTINUE READING
