AbstractIntense pulse light (IPL) has been studied and was used to treat vascular and pigmented lesions. This study investigated the effectiveness of IPL using a short cut-off filter handpiece for the treatment of pigmented lesions in Asians. Eighteen Chinese female patients with skin type III-IV with freckles were recruited. They received up to 7 treatments with 1-month interval between each treatment. A single pass of IPL using the Starlux WhiteTM (Palomar Medical Technologies, Inc.) handpiece with wavelength of 400-1400 nm, along with spot size of 12 x 28 mm and maximum fluence of 100J/cm2 was used. There was a statistical significant improvement in pigmented lesions (p=0.034). 47.1% of subjects were moderately to significantly satisfied. In terms of treatment complications, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation was recorded in 21.6% of subjects and one case developed hypopigmentation. (Reported by WM Au, GJ Chan and KF Loo)
