The Best Wavelengths for Treatment of Facial Telangiectasia

Best wavelengths for telangiectasia

A new study, published in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology (November 2017), found that pulsed dye lasers (PDL) and the MaxG Optimized Light Handpiece (500-670nm and 870-1200nm) offer the best outcomes for patients with facial telangiectasia. Lin Gao, MD, et al, of the Xijing Hospital department of dermatology in Xi’an, China, performed a retrospective analysis of 416 patients with facial telangiectasia who were treated by PDL or IPLs in their department from August 2012 to March 2015.
