The Vascular Laser uses a combination of longer wavelength (1064nm) and shorter wavelength (532nm) to reach both superficial and deeper layers of the skin. It treats a broad range of vessels from tiny spider veins to deep blue reticular veins quickly and effectively. Patients with dark, light or tanned skin can experience outstanding results.
About the Vascular Laser Treatment
The Vascular Laser delivers pulses of light energy which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later reabsorbed by your body. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skin’s surface, where it should be.
The Vascular Laser can remove unsightly veins from all parts of the body. The types of veins that can be treated include:
- Small, facial veins
- Capillaries (or telangiectasia)
- Spider veins
- Large blue leg veins
- Cherry angiomas on the body
- Birthmarks or port-wine stains (PWS)
- Poikiloderma (or sun damage) on the neck and décolletage
- Red scars
This treatment is not suitable for varicose veins. Vascular laser is often combined with Laser Genesis to diffuse redness and improve overall skin quality.
