Vein and Redness Removal
This is for the removal of vascular lesions, spider veins, port-wine stains, rosacea, telangiectasias, hemangiomas and most other conditions of blood vessels showing through the skin.
We use a KTP laser which emits a wavelength of 532 nanometers, close to peak absorbance of hemoglobin. This allows the laser to specifically target the oxy-hemoglobin in your blood, thereby leaving surrounding structures and tissue unaffected.
The laser passes through the skin to penetrate, shrink, or ablate the targeted vessel. Once this laser is absorbed by the target tissue it converts to heat. This causes the blood vessel walls to collapse, seal, and are later broken down by the body to be disposed. Due to genetics, hormones, sun exposure, and aging, the development of new veins may reoccur and additional treatments may therefore be necessary.
