When treating pigmentary disorders in Asian patients, the use of low-fluence picosecond Nd:YAG laser may be a more beneficial procedure, according to a poster presented at the American Academy of Dermatology virtual meeting.

Po-Hsuan Lu, MD, PhD, and colleagues analyzed whether low-fluence picosecond 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser (LFPS) was a more beneficial and safer means of treating pigmented lesions in Taiwanese patients compared with picosecond 532 nm Nd:YAG laser (PS).
