Laser Vein & Vascular Lesion Removal
Spider veins are small, damaged veins that can develop on the surface of the face and legs. They get their name because they tend to look like spider webs or tree branches. They can be caused by genetic and hormonal factors, as well as aging, obesity, and sun damage. They are generally harmless; however, they can be a significant cosmetic nuisance so many choose to treat them. Lasers can simply, safely, and successfully treat spider veins.
Telangiectasia are visible dilated blood vessels near the surface of the skin, which are sometimes referred to as “broken” blood vessels. Though they can occur anywhere on the body, telangiectasia are largely found on the face and legs. Laser and light therapies are non-invasive, safe, and effective ways to treat telangiectasia.
Cherry angiomas are common skin growths that vary in size. They are usually round and bright red in color. The reason these moles appear red is due to the collection of small blood vessels inside. These growths can range in size from a pinpoint to a ¼ inch in diameter. This type of skin growth is usually not a source for concern unless it bleeds frequently or changes in size, shape, or color. The appearance of these red bumps can be bothersome, and many choose to have them removed for cosmetic reasons. The most effective way of removing cherry angiomas is with a laser.
How do laser vein treatments work?
Laser or light energy is passed through the skin and absorbed by the targeted veins generating heat and destroying the blood vessels without damage to the surrounding skin. Unwanted veins and lesions can then be absorbed by the body and will dissolve over the course of several weeks to months. The number of treatments needed varies by condition.
