Vascular skin lesions can be a blemish on your appearance and even work against your self-confidence. It is possible to reclaim your looks and confidence through vascular lesions laser treatment. Aesthetic laser equipment provides safe and effective treatment for facial telangiectasia, spider angioma, spider veins, and varicose leg veins, all of which comprise the vast majority of laser treatments sought at dermatologic surgery practices across the country. The number of congenital and acquired vascular lesions that are being treated by equipment such as the Dual Accento continue to grow.
How it works
Vascular lesions laser treatment works by way of selective photothermolysis, wherein the laser beam penetrates the skin to the level of the target vessel long enough to trigger slow coagulation. The treatment is safe, painless, and gets rid of the lesions or capillaries on the skin. Medical laser equipment is designed to heat the skin gently, while causing no side-effects such as blisters, scars, or infection. The doctor will advise you on the number of sessions you need to attend and make the necessary appointments.
Vascular Lesions that are treatable by laser
As mentioned before, the range of vascular lesions that can be treated using laser therapy is growing with each day. Here is a snapshot of some of the adult vascular lesions that can be treated by way of laser therapy.
- Telangiectasias (including Spider Angioma, Rosacea, and Poikiloderma of Civatte)
- Capillary Malformation/Port Wine Stain
- Cherry Angiomas
- Pyogenic Granuloma
- Venous Lakes
- Leg Veins/Spider Veins of the Lower Extremities
Anesthesia is rarely necessary except when treating lesions that are located in sensitive areas or patients with low pain thresholds. In such cases, a topical or localized anesthetic works well. Laser technology has advanced a great deal and when used by properly trained physicians, there are no known side effects.
What remains important is for the pulse to allow the skin enough time to cool and yet retain adequate energy to deliver the desired treatment. Physicians also need to choose the right equipment and keep pace with technological developments in the design of cosmetic lasers.
