Vascular Lesions – $300
What are Vascular Lesions?
A vascular lesion is formed by abnormally large or numerous blood vessels located directly under the surface of the skin. These vessels may be visible through the skin. Down below are some of the most common ones:
- Telangiectasia– Facial spider veins caused by dilation of capillary vessels or arterioles.
- Cherry Angiomas– Slightly raised, red lesions
- Spider Angiomas-Slightly raised, red spider-like lesions
- Rosacea-Red flushing around the nose and cheeks
How do we treat it?
Our office carries the KTP laser which emits an intense beam of light which is selectively absorbed by abnormal vessels. The surrounding tissue is minimally affected due to the laser being so precise. Most vessels disappear during the treatment. A full session requires about 30 minutes to complete.
What to expect during the treatment
When the laser hits the precise area, you will feel a hot tingly sensation. Most patients do get a little red and swollen, almost like a sun burn. Not to worry we do provide Ice packs that help pull that heat out of the treated area.
What happens after the treatment
The areas that were treated will be surrounded by a red flush which resolves in a few hours. Areas treated for any abnormal vessels may also form a linear scaly surface crust over the vessels treated. These will fall off by themselves a few days after treatment.
Consultation required before treatment.
