Vascular Lesions

What is the treatment of Dermatological Vascular Lesions?

Red and blue vessels located on the face and lower limbs represent some of the most common imperfections afflicting people of all ages throughout the world. The laser treatment of dermatological vascular lesions takes advantage of the selective absorption of specific laser wavelengths by blood. The treated area generally turns rosy or red-blue temporarily. This effect will normally disappear over time, leaving the skin intact.

It is indicated for the treatment of patients with superficial blood vessels like capillaries, telangiectasias and rosacea.
The laser system permits also to treat blue capillaries of intermediate dimensions.

You will have to avoid sunlamps or sun exposure for at least two months before the session. It is also highly suggested to undergo this kind of treatment during the seasons when the sun is less intense like autumn, winter and beginning of spring.

How many treatments are necessary?

In general, an effective capillary treatment requires from two to three sessions to be repeated at one to three months intervals, depending on the specific case.

How long does a session last?

The duration of each session can vary based on the area to be treated.

Is the treatment painful?

The treatment involves a light burning sensation that ends immediately after the laser pulse. This sensation is never excessively painful because the laser is equipped with a powerful cooling system capable to make the treatment easily tolerable.
