- The 532 KTP Laser emits an intense beam of green light which is selectively absorbed by abnormal vessels or unwanted pigment. The absorption occurs so precisely that surrounding tissue is minimally affected. Immediately following the treatment, the areas treated will be surrounded by red flush which will resolve in hours to days depending on the intensity of the treatment. Most vessels will disappear during the treatment. Pigmented spots treated will turn darker during treatment and will remain visible until the lesion crusts, which form only over the treated spots, fall off naturally 5 to 15 days after treatment (this depends on the size of the pigmented lesions). These areas may look slightly pink for an additional few days.
- The treated area will be coated with a cooling gel or ice and Aquaphor following the procedure. Repeat treatments, if necessary, will normally be scheduled in 4 to 6 weeks.
- Post Care: keep the treated area covered with Aquaphor, and protect the area with hats/sun block.
