Answer

Laser care is also described. Moreno-Arias and Camps-Fresneda treated necrobiosis lipoidica with a pulse dye laser (Candela SPTL; Irvine, Mass). [29] They reported overall cosmetic improvement after 3 treatment sessions with respect to erythema and telangiectasis. Stabilization of the lesions was also achieved with the laser treatments.
