Abstract
Development of a small spot (100 microns) technique using very low powers (0.1 - 0.4 watts) continuous output by A. Scheibner M.D. in the early 1980's virtually eliminated scarring which made it possible to treat not only children with portwine stains but also cosmetic problems such as capillary telangiectasia for which treatment was previously not available. Improvement of scars was also observed to occur with this treatment in 1983. However, very specific adjustments were required to produce consistent improvement of scars.
