Vascular Laser Treatment

Vascular Lesions isa very broad term for a wide variety of different skin conditions but the one common factor is redness. Many vascular lesions are evident from birth but some develop as we age due to systemic reasons or lifestyle choices.Some of the lesions we develop on our faces and bodies include:

  • Telangiectasias - which look like red spider veins and are common on the cheeks and around the nose. Some can be treated with vascular laser and others are best treated with sclerotherapy, also offered at our clinic
  • Cherry hemangiomas - which look like small red pimples
  • Rosacea - a chronic skin condition that includes flushing and redness

The Vascular laser successfully uses BBL light to target reds in the skin and treat a wide variety of vascular lesions including superficial vascular malformations (port-wine stains), facial telangiestasias, spider veins and rosacea.

How does Vascular Laser work?

Laser or light energy is selectively absorbed by the oxyhemoglobin resulting in heating of the blood vessels. With the correct wavelengths and fluence which is determined by your medical aesthetician, the vascular lesions will be heated to above 70 degrees celsius. At that temperature, blood vessels will break down and shrink which leads to a reduction of the vascular lesion and a lessened or removed appearance of the redness from your complexion.
