What Is the Iriderm Diolite 532 Laser?
The Iriderm Diolite 532 offers a quick and convenient treatment experience. Patients may feel a brief sensation of heat as the laser works. After treatment, the skin might have redness, like a sunburn, and scabbing for a few days. There is no downtime required; patients may immediately return to their normal activities.
What Conditions Can the Diolite 532 Laser Treat?
The Diolite 532 can be used to minimize or eliminate the appearance of:
- Vascular lesions
- Telangectasias – Tiny red spider veins on the cheeks or nose
- Cherry angiomas – Small red, raised lesions
- Spider angiomas – Small red, raised, spider-like lesions
- Pigmented lesions
- Lentingines – Flat brown spots (due to excessive sun exposure)
- Keratosis – Slightly raised pigmented spots
- Dermatosis papulosis nigra – Small black spots (primarily seen in people of Asian descent)
Leg veins and raised or large moles typically will not respond to treatment with the Diolite.
How Is Vein Treatment Performed?
During treatment, the Diolite handpiece is placed over the lesion. The handpiece emits a pinpoint beam of laser light at a specific wavelength to the lesion. As the light passes through the skin, it is attracted to and absorbed by the color in the red blood cells of a vessel or the brown or black pigment (melanin) in a mole or spot. The laser energy turns to heat and destroys the vessel or fragments the pigment without disturbing the surrounding cells or tissue.
The destroyed vessel fades away almost immediately, and the fragmented pieces of pigment are filtered away from the body naturally. The destroyed vessel fades away almost immediately, and the fragmented pieces of pigment are filtered away from the body naturally. Some patients may require an additional session, depending on the number and severity of the lesion(s).
What Can I Expect During Recovery from Vein Treatment?
The treatment area may feel slightly warm for a few hours after the procedure, but typically resolves on its own. There is no downtime required after your treatment, and most patients return to your normal daily activities immediately following treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from Vein Treatment?
Most lesions look less noticeable right after treatment, and continues to fade over the course of a few days. Final treatment results are usually evident 10 to 14 days after treatment for vascular lesions and five to 10 days for pigmented lesions. Belladerma patients are generally very happy with their results.
