“…39,60 Initial reports of QSRLs featured responses ranging from poor to excellent. 48,53,[61][62][63][64][65][66][67] All histologic analyses showed residual nevus cells after treatment, leaving open the possibility of future malignant degeneration.…”

“…In general, darker skin has a lower threshold dose for clinical whitening due to the higher epidermal melanin content. 10 The use of long-pulsed (millisecond, or ms) pigment lasers in the treatment of lentigines and congenital nevi will be discussed under the individual sections.…”

“…Although pigmentary alteration is usually transient, it can be permanent. 13 Hypopigmentation is more common when the wavelength of the laser is well absorbed by melaninladen melanocytes. The QS Nd:YAG (532-nm) laser usually causes a short-lived hypopigmentation in all skin types, either due to the minimal depth of penetration of this wavelength (therefore preserving follicular melanocytes) 4 or due to the reduced fluences used compared to other laser wavelengths.…”
