The Effect

Benign vascular lesions are overgrown enlarged blood vessels or multiple small vessels. Vascular Lesion Laser treatment can treat these vessels, safely, easily and effectively by targeting the red blood cells which in turn heat and damage the vessels.

The Procedure

Treatment with the laser varies from patient to patient depending on the type of lesion, and the size of the affected area. Some lesions, like small broken vessels, will require only a few pulses, while others, like port-wine stains, will require many more. Leg veins will sometimes require more than one treatment.

Best Candidates

Anyone experiencing vascular lesions or enlarged blood vessels.
