Laser Treatment of Vascular Lesions

The Nd:YAG laser, with it’s 1064nm wavelength, is a mainstay for treatment of vascular lesions. What it may sacrifice in absorption by hemoglobin, it makes up for in depth of penetration. The long-pulsed Nd:YAG laser has been the ideal choice for lesions off the face and for thick or deep vascular targets, although newer short-pulsed high-energy (650-microsecond) devices are showing high efficacy and safety on facial vessels as well. Common uses include leg veins, port-wine stains, blue vessels, and venous lakes. The Nd:YAG laser is a versatile wavelength with many possible uses for both pigmented and vascular indications.
