Diolite 532 NM Laser

The short wavelength does not penetrate deeply into the skin and this laser is therefore used for the treatment of superficial skin lesions such as:

Vascular Lesions

Telangiectasia - facial spider veins caused by a dilation of capillary vessels or arterioles.

Cherry Angiomas - slightly raised, red lesions common on the body as we get older.

Spider Naevi - slightly raised, red spider-like lesions.

Pigmented Lesions

Lentigines - Flat, brown patches on the skin present at sites of frequent sun exposure such as the face and backs of hands.

Seborrheic Keratoses - slightly elevated pigmented spots often found on the back and hands.

Freckles - a brownish spot on the skin common on people with fair skin.

Dermatosis Papulosis Nigra - small, black marks seen primarily on people of Asian or African descent.

This laser generates green light with a wavelength of 532 nm. This short wavelength is extremely well absorbed by both oxyhaemoglobin (in bright red blood cells carrying oxygen) and melanin (black or brown pigment found in the skin). Absorption of the light heats up the targeted red bloods or melanin causing destruction of the blood vessels and pigmented lesions while leaving healthy cells intact.
