OBJECTIVE: Different devices are currently used for treating facial vascular lesions (FVL). This paper presents the aesthetic outcomes using different light-based and laser devices, including narrow band spectrum intense pulsed-light dye (NB-Dye-VL), Pulsed dye laser (PDL)-neodymium-doped yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Nd:YAG) dual-therapy, and either PDL or LP Nd:YAG for treating FVL in a clinical setting.

METHODS: A retrospective and single-center study conducted on subjects ≥18 years with FVL. Patients underwent treatment with either PDL + LP Nd:YAG dual-therapy, NB-Dye-VL, PDL, or LP Nd:YAG, according to the patient and lesion characteristics. The primary outcome was the weighted degree of satisfaction.

RESULTS: The cohort consisted of fourteen patients, nine women (64.3%) and five men (35.7%). The most prevalent FVL types treated were rosacea (28.6%; 4/14) and spider hemangioma (21.4%; 3/14). Seven patients underwent PDL + Nd:YAG (50.0%), three were treated with NB-Dye-VL (21.4%), and PDL or LP Nd:YAG was performed in two patients each (14.3%). Eleven patients rated their treatment outcome as excellent (78.6%), and three as very good (21.4%). Practitioners 1 and 2 classified treatment results as excellent in eight cases (57.1%) each. No serious or permanent adverse events were reported. Two (14.3%) patients, one treated with PDL and the other with PDL + LP Nd:YAG dual-therapy, had post-treatment purpura, which was successfully resolved with topical treatment after 5 and 7 days, respectively.

CONCLUSIONS: NB-Dye-VL and the PDL + LP Nd:YAG dual-therapy devices achieve excellent aesthetic outcomes for treating a wide range of FVL.
