Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Intense pulsed light (IPL) technology has long been used in the treatment of facial telangiectasia. While the large spot size of traditional IPL devices offers rapid coverage, it has limitations in terms of visibility and uniform contact with the skin in contoured areas of the face. The novel IPL used in this study had a small spot size (6.35 mm) and shorter wavelength (500-635 nm), allowing the use of high fluence without burning the normal epidermal tissue surrounding the lesion, thus providing better efficacy. Treatment of facial telangiectasia using small-spot IPL is effective with a low risk of dermatological damage, and its uses for medical care are expected to diversify.
