    D-OCT of Facial Telangiectasia Treated With IPL

    Objectives: To examine whether dynamic Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) could characterize vessel dimensions and blood flow of telangiectasias before and after treatment with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). Methods: Dynamic-OCT (D-OCT) imaged telangiectasia characterized blood vessel width and depth, blood flow, and attenuation. Measurements were done immediately before and after, 1-3 days after, and 1 month after IPL treatment. Characterization of vessel dimensions at baseline were verified by a blinded observer. At one-month follow-up, clinical improvement was characterized as good, moderate or none and possible adverse effects were described.
