What LASER is used?

The 532nm diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) laser, also known as a "532nm diolite laser," is a type of laser that emits light at a wavelength of 532 nanometers (green light). This laser technology is widely used in various applications including medical treatments.

One of the key features of the 532nm diolite laser is its power output and efficiency, which make it a preferred choice for many applications. The laser is capable of emitting power in the range of 3 watts, which is ideal for various medical applications. The laser is commonly used in various surgical procedures, including ophthalmology, dermatology, and cosmetic surgery.

Is the treatment effective?

Many studies have shown the 532-nm diolite laser to be effective in treating facial telangiectasia. Patients report  significantly less swelling, bruising, pain, and redness after the diolite laser treatment. Another study concluded that the 532-nm diolite laser appeared to be the optimal choice for the treatment of facial telangiectasia because of its effectiveness combined with patient comfort.

Pigmented lesions such as lentigines, keratoses, ephledes (freckles), and dermatosis papulosa nigra have been successfully treated with the 532-nm diolite laser. Early hypertrophic scarring and keloids that possess significant vascularity have also been successfully treated with the diolite laser.
