Introduction: Melanocytic nevus is commonly occurring condition in Indian subjects. We investigate the clinical response and efficiency of laser for removing facial melanocytic nevi.
Materials and Methods: The present study comprised 98 patients in which 52 are females and 46 are males with age 12 to 57 years. These patients with different Nevus were treated with different laser for a period of 38 months. Patients had skin types 4 and 5 and 6 based on fitzpatrick skin type. The results were documented and clinical photographs were taken before and after completion of treatments.
Results: good-to-excellent results were presented by 96% patients. All subjects completed the study and the follow-up visits. Treatment was well tolerated overall by all participants, with no major adverse events. Out of 98 patients 20 patients received one or two session of treatment in which 10 were received very satisfactory result, 6 patients received good result and 3 received fair result. Out of 98 patients 38 patients had 95% clearance and 24 had 90% clearance of nevi with treatment sessions ranging from 3-8.
Conclusion: we recommend that in cases of nevus in Indian patients, Q-switched Nd: YAG, Er: YAG, Intensive Pulsed Laser (IPL) and Pulsed Dye Laser (PDL) are easy-to perform, safe and effective treatment. Good results were taken after laser treatment on nevi, on an average 96% of the patients received good-to-excellent results.
