The ability to increase laser-induced cutaneous blood vessel damage selectivity is dependent upon optimizing various intrinsic laser parameters. Varying the laser emission wavelength, pulse duration, and/or incident energy dosage allows the clinician potential improvement in the laser treatment of cutaneous small blood vessel processes such as port-wine hemangioma and telangiectasia. The pulsed dye laser at 577 nm and a pulse duration of 300 to 400 microseconds, incorporates desired laser… CONTINUE READING
