We have been using a continuous dye laser (coherent medical) for more than two years. The wavelength is 585 nm, the power 1.8 W and the fluence 16 - 18 J/cm2. We have treated 364 patients with port-wine stains and 15 children with ulcerated hemangiomas. The results were analyzed using a computer program developed by a team in Lille. The most frequent color was pale pink, followed by deep pink, red and purple. The mean number of laser sessions was 2.3.
