Are you frustrated with the appearance of unwanted lesions or spots on your skin? Have you considered pursuing a treatment to achieve a more even skin tone or complexion, but you are hesitant to pursue extremely invasive procedures? Laser and light treatments are a dynamic choice for enhancing the appearance of skin. Treatments with a vascular laser allow for targeted treatments of lesions without affecting the surrounding skin areas. Discover treatment options and potential benefits during a consultation with our dedicated team at Southwest Michigan Plastic and Hand Surgery in Battle Creek or Portage, MI!
What Is the Vascular Laser?
The vascular laser offers a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment option to minimize the appearance of lesions on the skin. This device delivers targeted pulse to blue, purple, and red lesions to break up the blood vessels in the specific area.
Vascular laser treatments may be an effective choice to address concerns such as:
- Facial veins
- Leg veins
- Rosacea or redness
- Venous lesions
Treating these concerns with the vascular laser allows for contained treatment of blemishes. As laser energy only impacts the treatment area, skin surrounding the lesions is unaffected.
What Could I Expect from Treatment?
Vascular laser treatments are performed in the comfort of our Michigan offices. During treatment, the handheld laser device is applied directly to the treatment area. As the energy from the laser passes through your skin, it targets and disrupts the blood vessels below the surface. This helps clear and reduce the appearance of a lesion.
While there is little to no discomfort associated with the treatment experience, you may experience some warmth during treatment. However, there is no set downtime associated with treatment, and you should be able to return to your normal daily activities! Skin in the treatment area may be sensitive and tender, but our team will provide you with all necessary information for caring for the treatment area.
Results achieved with the vascular laser will vary for each person and concerned treated. However, most people enjoy rapid results, but a series of treatments may be recommended.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Treatments with the vascular laser may be a good, safe choice for most healthy adults with realistic goals and expectations for treatment. However, it is important to remember that some laser treatments may be more effective for some skin tones than others.
A consultation with our team can help determine if these laser treatments can help you achieve your goals. As a series of treatments may be required to achieve the best results, they can help you develop your unique treatment plan.
