Diolite Laser

Diolite laser is an intense beam of light that’s used to eliminate lesions on the skin. The light is absorbed by red blood cells and spots containing dark pigmentation, killing those cells and leaving healthy cells undamaged.

Temporary redness, swelling and sensitivity may last from a few hours to a few days.

Diolite laser treatment may be effective for patients with pigmented lesions, such as keratosis, dermatosis papulosis nigra and freckles, or vascular lesions, such as facial spider veins and angiomas.
