Vascular lesions refer to abnormal blood vessels that start becoming visible through the skin. These lesions are harmless and can occur in any area of the body, but they are most commonly seen on the face and legs. Typical vascular lesions include port wine stains, spider veins, hemangioma and telangiectasia.
Vascular lesions can make you look older and affect the aesthetic appearance of your skin. Advance laser based med spa treatments are now available to treat vascular lesions for cosmetic purposes.
Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides safe and proven aesthetic procedures to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
Laser Treatment for Vascular Lesions
Laser treatments have been the gold standard for safe and effective removal of unsightly vascular lesions for several years. Laser therapy is a safe and non-surgical med spa procedure involving the application of light energy on the affected areas of your skin.
Vascular lesions will absorb the maximum light energy, and will get heated to the point of coagulation. When this happens, the lesion will be natural absorbed by the body through the internal healing process.
Types of Vascular Lesions Treated with Lasers
The following are some of the common vascular lesions that can be successfully treated with a med spa laser therapy by an experienced provider:
- Spider veins (unsightly veins that may occur on the legs and face)
- Port-wine stains (red birthmarks that are usually present at birth)
- Rosacea (red facial lesions that could make you look sunburned)
- Telangiectasia (blood vessels which may cause red thread-like lines on your skin)
- Poikiloderma (red color pigment on your skin which could occur because of sun damage)
- Hemangiomas (a group of bright red vessels constituting a birthmark)
How does the Laser Treatment Work?
Certain laser therapies are designed specifically to target the blood vessels of a vascular lesion, while leaving the surrounding healthy tissue undamaged. An experienced laser treatment provider can safely remove the pigmented tissue without causing any harm to the adjacent skin.
The laser system includes a unique cooling device that will continue to protect the skin against overheating, while keeping you comfortable throughout the treatment session.
What to Expect During Your Vascular Lesion Treatment?
Your laser expert at the med spa will provide you eye protection so that the sharp light does no harm to your eyes. They will then begin to pass the laser hand piece over the treatment site. You will experience a cooling sensation prior to each laser pulse, which will ensure that your skin remains at a comfortable, tolerable temperature.
Depending on your needs, your provider may apply topical anesthesia prior to the treatment to keep you completely comfortable during the procedure. Following the treatment process, you should wear a sunscreen as advised by your provider because your skin will be sensitive for a few days.
