Diolite Laser

Benefits

The Diolite 532 is an advanced compact laser system for the treatment of vascular and pigmented skin lesions including telangiectasia, rosacea, spider angiomas, spider veins, neovascularization around scars, cherry angiomas, port wine stains, lentigines, dermatosis papulosis nigra, keratoses, poikiloderma of civatte, and freckles. This laser light is absorbed by oxyhemoglobin (bright red blood cells carrying oxygen) and melanin/pigment causing decomposition or destruction by heat of unwanted cells while leaving your healthy cells intact. This quick, comfortable and effective procedure significantly reduces pigmentation conditions leaving the patient feeling more self-confident and rejuvenated.

Treatment

Treatment may vary, depending upon patient characteristics and the area being treated. In most cases, anesthesia is not required. You will be asked to wear special goggles to protect your eyes from the intense beam of laser light. The doctor will use a pencil thin hand piece to direct a beam of laser light to the lesion. Some patients report feeling a slight stinging sensation during the treatment followed by some redness, which usually goes away in 2-4 hours.

Recovery

Postoperative care is minimal. You may be asked to use an anti-bacterial ointment on the treated area for a short period of time and we suggest that you stay out of the sun during the healing process. Final treatment results should be evident within 10-14 days for vascular lesions and within 2-3 weeks after treatment for pigmented lesions. In the meantime, normal daily activities can be resumed with only slight redness evident at the treatment area.
