What is Vascular Treatment?

Vascular treatment involves using a focused laser to pulsate light below the skin, targeting vascular lesions. The light heats the damaged blood vessels, signaling the body to remove them. This effectively reduces the appearance and size of vascular lesions without damaging the surrounding tissues. Vascular laser treatment can serve as a form of physical relief for those experiencing pain associated with their lesions.

Who is a Candidate for Vascular Laser Treatment?

Candidates for vascular laser treatments include men and women who want to eliminate their red lesions. Candidates may experience pain associated with the vascular lesions that they are aiming to relieve. Vascular lesions include varicose veins, couperose, telangiectasias, rosacea, port wine stains, hemangiomas, angiomas, cherry angioma, and Poikiloderma of Civatte. This laser option is a safe, effective, and quick treatment for individuals seeking an improvement in their skin condition. The best way to ensure that this is the right treatment for you is through a private consultation with one of our highly educated professionals at Coastal Medical Aesthetics.

The Vascular Laser Treatment

Before your vascular skin treatment, you will be provided with protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the bright beams of light. The laser device will then be applied to your treatment areas where it will target your vascular lesions. During this time, you may feel slight discomfort similar to a burning feeling.

Vascular Laser Recovery and Results

Immediately after the treatment, you can resume the rest of your daily activities. Your skin may appear red where the laser was applied. If your treatment was performed on your facial area, creams can be applied to soothe the area.  It is important to avoid sun exposure so that your skin can heal properly. The vascular laser treatment includes a series of multiple 45-minute sessions. The number of vascular laser treatment sessions that you require will depend on the size of the treatment area and the severity of your vascular lesions. Some patients may react sooner than others to treatment. Most patients experience results ten days after their initial treatment session.
