Vascular lesions, simply put, are blood vessels that can be seen through the skin. They usually appear red or purple in color and can occur in various sizes and shape on all areas of the body; however, they are most commonly found on the face and legs. There are many causes of vascular lesions, including the natural aging process. As we age, changes occur to our vascular system that can cause pooling in blood vessels or create large vessels to form directly under the skin, resulting in broken capillaries, hemangiomas, cherry angiomas, and spider veins.
Treatments are fast and straightforward to perform. Short pulses of laser energy are directly applied to the entire area of the skin blemish. The veins and capillaries in the skin absorb the laser’s energy while the melanin in the skin is targeted. The vessels begin to break down which then allows the body to naturally remove the pigment via the body’s natural immune defense.
Treatment is relatively painless, and procedure time is dependent on the size of the lesion being treated. Laser therapy can be used for the following:
These are commonly found under the eyes, around the nose or on the cheeks. They appear sporadically and are the result of broken capillaries at the surface of the skin.
These small lesions usually form in clusters resulting in a variety of color changes at the skin’s surface. They often occur on the legs and may be the result of numerous factors including prolonged standing, sitting, hormonal changes, medications, pregnancy or an inactive lifestyle.

There is no downtime related to vascular lesion laser therapy. You may experience some slight redness, but it can easily be covered up by makeup if needed. Results can be seen in as little as one to two laser treatments. However, this does vary from person to person and is determined by the extent of treatment needed based on the size of the lesion. Most patients experience significant improvement in the appearance of their skin with laser treatment for vascular lesions.
