Ortiz, A., Greywal, T. “1064nm Nd:YAG LASER WITH A 650ms PULSE DURATION FOR THE TREATMENT OF MELASMA: A CLINICAL EVALUATION.” Lasers Surg Med. 2019 Mar;51(S31):S13-14.

Background: The effective treatment of melasma remains a therapeutic challenge. The 1064nm Nd:YAG laser with a 650- microsecond pulse duration is safe for all skin types and is more tolerable then conventional long-pulsed Nd:YAG lasers. We aim to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the 1064nm Nd:YAG laser with a 650-microsecond pulse duration for the treatment of melasma.

Study Design/Materials and Method: Patients were treated with the 1064nm Nd:YAG laser with a 650-microsecond pulse duration. The energy mode ranged from 3 to 4, which corresponds to a fluence of 11 to 14 J/cm2 with a 6mm spot size, and 3 passes were performed per treatment session. Each treatment session was scheduled approximately 3-4 weeks apart, and photographs were taken prior to each treatment.
