Treatment of the vascular lesions of the face and neck using selective vascular photothermolysis with intense pulse light

Treatment of the vascular lesions of the face and neck using selective vascular photothermolysis... Intense pulse light with a flash lamp has been a treatment modality for several years. The technology uses multiple filters capable of treating various types of vascular lesions. An advantage of this diverse machine is the ability to adjust wavelengths through different filters and modify pulse duration and pulse delay. This allows treatment of various vascular lesions of different size and depth. This retrospective study in 44 patients determined the long-term outcomes and efficacy of intense pulse light on vascular lesions of the face, including telangiectasias, rosacea, cavernous hemangioma, and port wine stains. We also evaluated the proportional clearance of the lesion, number of treatments to achieve optimal results, side effects, and patient satisfaction. Patients were followed for an average of 19 months and received an average of 2.9 treatments. In 52% of patients there was over 75% resolution of the lesions. A higher number of treatments resulted in better outcomes without any increase in the side effects. Overall 81% of the patients were totally satisfied with the treatment. Intense pulse light offers an easy and effective way of treating vascular lesions of the face and neck. It has minimal side effects and yields high patient satisfaction.
