Laser treatments are now a routine procedure for removing many types of vascular lesions, including hemangiomas, vascular malformations such as port-wine stains, telangiectasias, venous lakes, keratoses, moles, and other pigmented skin lesion removals on the face.
Er: YAG lasers from Fotona can be used for the ablation of enabling the skin lesion removal of the epidermis and superficial dermis in a controlled and relatively bloodless manner.
Clinical studies have shown that Er: YAG lasers are very effective for treating keratoses, with a clinical and histological improvement of up to 93% after just one laser lesion removal treatment.
The Perfect Vascular Solution
The long-pulse Nd:YAG laser integrated into TimeWalker Fotona4D offers the perfect solution for treating facial vascular lesions. Fotona’s long-pulse Nd:YAG wavelength penetrates to a 5-6 mm depth into the skin, allowing for highly effective treatments.
Safe, effective and minimally invasive
The targeted chromophore for vascular lesions is intravascular oxyhemoglobin, which means thermal damage is primarily restricted to cutaneous blood vessels. The blood inside the vein absorbs the energy from the laser, converted into heat, and the vein walls are subsequently destroyed.
Compared with other wavelengths, which mainly affect the surface layers of a lesion, Nd:YAG light also targets the underlying vascular feeding system, which is essential for ensuring the long-term efficacy of the treatment.
This process is perfectly safe, as other healthy veins supply blood to the treated area, and the body’s immune system clears away dead tissue, just like with a bruise.
