The diolite laser is excellent to use for the appropriate vascular or pigmented lesions. Approximately 60-65% of the lesions should clear with one session. 1-2 sessions are recommended depending on the number of lesions present and the desired reduction. The darker the pigmented lesions, the better the results will render. Lasers work by attraction to colors, like wearing a black shirt in sunlight, you will absorb all the heat energy, a white shirt will not absorb light. Many vascular lesions immediately disappear at the time of treatment. Please be advised that vascular lesions can be proliferative, that is , they continue to develop and re-grow as older lesions are destroyed. Final treatment results should be evident within 10 to14 days after treatment for vascular lesions and within 5-10 days after treatment for pigmented lesions. In the meantime, normal daily activities can be resumed with only a slight redness evident at the treatment area. You can return to work that day.
