For treatment of vascular lesions, pulses of Q-switched laser light are directly applied to the entire area of the blemish. The veins and capillaries of the lesion absorb the laser’s energy while the surrounding skin tissue does not. The treatment causes the exposed vessels to break down and become less visible.
Procedure time for vascular lesion treatments depends on the size of the lesion. One area takes only a few minutes. Side effects from the procedure are minimal – patients may experience some slight discomfort or redness in the area. We can provide numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable.
