Laser for Vascular Lesions

The vascular lesion is a generalized term used to describe the visibility of structurally abnormal blood vessels on the surface of the skin. The abnormal pattern of blood vessels appears in blue or purple color in twisted shapes on the skin surface. They are visible in various size and shape all over the body as port wine stains, hemangiomas, and cherry angiomas. Laser therapy is the safest and effective method to treat vascular lesions. At Anew advanced aesthetic daycare centre we follow state of the art laser and light technologies to treat and improve the appearance of the affected part using

  • Pulsed Dye Laser (PDL)
  • Nd: YAG laser, Cynergy Multiplex (combines PDL and Nd: YAG lasers into one pulse)
  • Sciton Broad Band Light (intensely pulsed light device).

The FDA approved Lumenis laser devices uses a concentrated laser beam to target the abnormal blood vessels at the targeted area below the skin. The light energy projected below the skin is transformed into heat energy, devastating the blood vessel. The laser treatment does not any harm to the surrounding tissues and structural organs and removes the risk of any long-term skin damage.

Laser treatment of various vascular lesions

Laser treatment is non-invasive, no pain, safest and effective non-surgical treatment for various causes including:

  • Spider veins
  • Varicose veins
  • Port wine stain birthmarks
  • Broken capillaries
  • Rosacea
  • Cherry angiomas
  • Warts
  • Red stretch marks

How laser treatment work for removing vascular lesions?

The laser beams are targeted to the vascular lesion raising the temperature and heating the hemoglobin in the area of concentrated causing damage and break down the blood vessel wall. The body absorbs the damaged blood vessels making them less visible on the skin surface. The treatment takes about 30 minutes to complete and the patient does not feel any pain or discomfort during the treatment process. The laser treatment is a non-invasive process and does not require any anesthetic.

At Anew advanced aesthetic day care centre, we rely on FDA approved Lumenis IPL solution with Optimal Pulse Technology (OPT™) to treat tiny structural abnormalities in veins up to 1.5 mm deep. The Multiple Sequential Pulsing systems effectively treat larger vascular lesions in any part of the body.

Laser treatments are the safe and effective method for treating various types and sizes of vascular lesions. If the patient experiences any swelling or redness in the treated area, anesthetic surgeon provides instructions to reduce the swelling. Applying an ice pack or aloe-vera based moisturizer on the treated area helps reduce the discomfort and will be not prevalent for more than 48 hours.
