Laser treatments are now a routine procedure for the removal of many types of vascular lesions, including hemangiomas, spider veins, reticular veins, vascular malformations such as port-wine stains, telangiectasias, venous lakes and angiomata.
The perfect vascular solution is the long-pulse Fotona laser’s patented and exclusive Accelera mode which penetrates to a depth of 5-6 mm into the skin, allowing for highly effective treatments. In addition, the multi-wavelength QX MAX system with Q-switched KTP and Nd:YAG wavelengths is also an ideal platform for the removal of vascular as well as pigmented lesions.
The targeted chromophore for vascular lesions is intravascular oxyhemoglobin; thus, thermal damage is largely restricted to cutaneous blood vessels. The energy from the laser is absorbed by the blood in the vein, converted into heat, and the vein walls are subsequently destroyed. In comparison with other wavelengths, which mainly affect the surface layers of a lesion, Nd:YAG light also targets the underlying vascular feeding system, which is important for ensuring the long-term efficacy the treatment. This process is perfectly safe, as other healthy veins carry blood from the treated area and the body’s immune system clears away the dead tissue just as it commonly does with a bruise.
