Introduction: the laser therapy is a therapeutical option to treat vascular malformations.
Objective: this study was done with the objectives:, to characterize the sample socialdemographically, to classify lesions topographically, to determine effectiveness of endoluminal diode laser sclerosis in the treatment of low flow vascular malformations, to determine changes in diameter and lesions presence, to identify accidents and complications.
Method: a study of cases was carried out in 12 patients of the total of patients who attended with the diagnosis of low flow vascular malformations, at the Department of Maxillofacial Surgery, Faculty of Dentistry "Raúl González Sánchez", from October 2011 to February 2012.The patients were treated by endoluminal sclerosis with diodo laser. Was assessment age, sex, area, diameter, and lesion presence chronologically.
Results: 12 patients was studied, the 66.7 % of the sample were female, the 33,3% of the patients were with age among 30-39 years. The 50% had regression of lesion after one session of treatment. The complication most frequent was swelling.
Conclusions: the endoluminal laser sclerosis was a safe and efficacy method to treat low flow vascular orofacial lesions.

Key words: mow flow vascular malformation, endoluminal sclerosis, diode laser.
