The high potency, extensive absorption and extreme superficial action of its wavelength (532 nm) make it ideal for treating all the superficial pigmented lesions
Cutaneous warts, flat warts, keratosis, inflammatory acne (due to the selectivity on porphyrins with fractional scanning LIGHTSCAN), and dermatological surface surgery (vaporization without anaesthesia of all benign skin lesions and acne scars).
Freckles, dermatosis, cafè au lait stains, papulosis nigra, hyperkeratotic lesions, poikiloderma of civatte, photoaging (LIGHTSCAN fractionation system).
The photocoagulating property of the 808 nm wavelength is used in the field of dermosurgery due to its selective absorption by haemoglobin-melanin chromophores and is therefore excellent for skin and mucous membrane lesions.
The preventive iatrogenic staining with exogenous chromophores increases the absorption of LASEmaR® 800 also for normohypochromic dermo-mucosal lesions (warts, condylomas, fibromas, statomas, papillomas, polyps, pyogenic granulomas, leukoplakias, etc.) thus enhancing its ablative precision with the advantage of removing just the stained areas and significantly reducing (up to 2/3) the energies used without staining.
The advantage of artificial staining associated with the appropriate impulse and the compliance with the thermal relaxation time (TRT) eliminates the risk of accidental damage to the healthy surrounding areas, due to accidental movements of the operators or patients, especially when used in children. Thanks to the interconnection of the surgical optical fibres, the advantage of replacing the focused handpieces gives the LASEmaR® 800 a very good cutting-clotting effect, which is essential for surgical excisions of lesions to be sent for histological exams.
Its use is limited to the anatomical regions around the eyes and to the large surface vessels of the neck and head.
LASEmaR® 1500, Aton, LASEmaR® 2000, and Spectrum®
Wavelengths in the near infrared spectrum that are most active on water (1470 nm and 1940 nm) can be successfully used in dermosurgery if sent through optical microfibers guided through dedicated surgical handpieces. The applications include vaporization, cutting and clotting.
