532 nm VariLite Laser

Dr. Lupo began using the Iridex 532 nm VariLite Laser in 1999. Since then, this laser technology was purchased by Cutera and has been refined, and now Dr. Lupo uses the most updated version: the Cutera 532 nm VariLite Laser. This laser precisely targets and treats small, benign pigmented spots and small dilated blood vessels on the surface of the skin. The laser generates an intense beam of light that targets the treatment site. The laser light is absorbed by oxyhemoglobin (bright red blood cells carrying oxygen) or the melanin (black or brown pigment found in the skin) causing decomposition or destruction by heating the unwanted cells while leaving healthy cells intact.

At the Lupo Center, we treat the following skin conditions with the 532 nm VariLite Laser:

Vascular Lesions

Telangiectasia – small, surface veins caused by dilation of capillary vessels or arterioles

Pigmented Lesions
  • Dermatosis Papulosis Nigra (DPN) – small, black raised lesions seen primarily on people of Asian or African descent
  • Freckles – brown spots on the skin; common on people with fair skin
  • Lentigines – flat, brown spots on the skin: present on skin with frequent sun exposure
Each procedure only takes a few minutes and the results are almost immediate without bruising or discoloration. The safe and easy treatment allows patients to resume to normal activities with little risk of side effects.
