What is vascular laser treatment?
Vascular laser treatment is a method of treatment for vascular lesions like blood vessels on the face. The treatment uses a laser that produces high intensity light which heats vascular lesions and destroys them without damaging surrounding skin. Since surrounding skin remains undamaged, the risk of scarring is very low. Patients are left with clearer skin after treatment.
Vascular laser treatment is performed by doctors like Dr. Amy Chow MD here at Dr. Chow’s Rejuvenation.
Who should get vascular laser treatment?
You might be a good candidate for the treatment if you suffer from fine blood vessels in your skin (diffuse redness), linear blood vessels, or both. These issues can be anywhere on your body, including the face. In fact, the face (especially the nose) is the most commonly treated area. If you want to get rid of vascular lesions permanently, then vascular laser treatment may be perfect for you.
What results can I expect from laser vascular lesion treatment?
After treatment, it can take up to a month to see the full effects and results, but the final results are permanent! The treated lesions will likely have been destroyed, and once they’re gone, they’re gone for good. However, if a patient suffers from excessive blood vessels, the patient may generate new vessels in the future. That’s not a significant problem, though, because these new blood vessels can be treated too.
You can expect some redness and possibly some bruising after your treatment, but that’s about it, and those issues shouldn’t last longer than just a few days. You should ask a medical professional like Dr. Amy Chow MD about what you can expect after your treatment.
How do you prepare for laser vascular lesion treatment?
To make sure you’re ready for a treatment session, you should:
- Avoid tanning and sun, use sunscreen with a high SPF, and wear sun-protective clothing like a hat before your treatment session
- Avoid medications or supplements that make bruising more likely, like aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E, a fish oil supplement, gingko, ginseng, or a prescription blood-thinning medication (only if a medical professional recommends this)
- Consider taking any other recommendations the professional makes, like using numbing cream 30 to 90 minutes before the treatment session
A typical treatment session shouldn’t take any more than 30 minutes, so you shouldn’t have to set aside a lot of time for your session.
