Abstract/OtherAbstract:
OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this clinical study was to evaluate the effectiveness of an intense pulsed light (IPL) irradiator system for the treatment of benign pigmented lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 18 patients with lentigo solaris and eight patients with melanocytic nevi were treated once with an IPL system. After 2 months, the effect was evaluated on close-up photographs. RESULTS: Pigment reduction was obtained in 96% of the patients, and the average clearance was found to be 74.2% and 66.3% for lentigo solaris and melanocytic nevi, respectively. CONCLUSION: The IPL was found to be effective for removal of benign pigmented lesions.
