Pigmentary Disorders in Asian Skin: Treatment With Laser and Intense Pulsed Light Sources
The development of selective photothermolysis has enabled removal of targets such as melanin. Both lasers and intense pulsed light (IPL) sources have been used in the treatment of pigmented lesions, however careful selection is important to ensure success.
The Use of Lasers and Intense Pulsed Light Sources for the Treatment of Pigmentary Lesions
Lasers and intense pulsed light sources are frequently used for the treatment of pigmented lesions, and the appropriate selection of devices for different lesions is vital to achieving satisfactory clinical outcomes. In the removal of melanocytic nevi, a combined approach with a long-pulse pigmented laser and a Q-switched laser is particularly applicable.
