Facial redness, broken blood vessels, discoloration
Many people are affected with vascular skin conditions or pigmentation that they don’t like. These conditions can have a serious effect on the individual’s quality of life or well-being. We use a laser to precisely target the red and/or brown discolorations to improve the appearance of the skin.
The laser treats the following conditions:
· Rosacea · Facial veins · Leg veins · Angiomas · Freckles · Age spots · Sun spots
· Sun damage · Red birthmarks · Venous lakes · Scars · Skin revitalization
What is the treatment like?
Your skin will be cleansed to remove all traces of sunscreen and makeup. Eye protection will be placed over your eyes. Depending on your treatment you may have a cool gel applied to your skin. The laser treatment is a quick pulse of light that may feel like a rubber band lightly snapping on the skin or may just feel like a warm sensation. Most patients are very comfortable.
Are there any side effects? What about downtime?
Redness and/or swelling can be expected following treatment and will resolve within a few days. Treated brown spots will darken and slough off within three to six days. For full face treatments, swelling will peak 24 to 48 hours post treatment and usually resolves within a few days. Typically, you can wear make-up and return to normal activities immediately. In some cases, you may receive a topical steroid to reduce swelling as needed.
What are the benefits of laser treatment?
For most people, the laser provides quick treatments with best results within just a few days. Most procedures only take 5 to 10 minutes, but some may take up to 45 minutes.
How many treatments will I need?
Most treatments require only one to two treatment sessions. The number of treatments will vary based on your condition. You may need additional treatments over time to maintain your results.
