The Treatment of Solar Lentigo Using Dr. Hoon Hur’s Optimal Melanocytic Suicide-2 Parameter with a High Fluence 1064nm Nd:yag Laser Without Postinflammatory Hyperpigmentation

Authors: Hoon Hur, Yu Ri Kim

A solar lentigo is a small, well-circumscribed, pigmented macule surrounded by normal-appearing skin. Histopathlogic findings may show epidermal hyperplasia and increased melanin pigmentation of the basal layer. A variable number of melanocytes are present; these melanocytes may be increased in number, but they do not form nests. In the most cases, treatment is not necessary for solar lentigo. However treating the solar lentigo without postinflammatory hyperpigmentation is very difficult and treatment for solar lentigo without side effects such as postinflammatory hyperpigmentation, scars and recurrences cannot be found in any literature yet. Therefore the authors introduce the new treatment of solar lentigo using optimal melanocytic suicide-2 parameter with a high fluence 1064nm Q-switched Nd:YAG laser without side effects or recurrences.
