Laser Hemangioma, Port Wine Stain & Spider Vein Removal
Hormonal and genetic factors lead to the appearance of various blood vessels in the skin. Port Wine Stains are a type of birthmark whereas spider veins (also known as telangiectasias) develop as we age. Hemangiomas can be either.
Our laser targets and heats up hemoglobin inside red blood cells. The heat damages the blood vessels causing them to close and eliminate or greatly reduced the appearance through the skin.
The procedure usually takes about 10-15 minutes for small spider veins and hemangiomas.
However, for Port Wine Stains, expect a little longer. We place a topical anesthetic, like lidocaine cream, on the skin prior to the treatment and let it work its magic. While you wait, you can relax in our peaceful surroundings and enjoy an adult beverage if you like. As a full service medical office, mild sedation is available
Laser spider vein removal on the face or neck can be treated in 1 session. Larger vessels, especially those vessels on the legs, often require multiple sessions for the results you want. Slight bruising my result, but downtime is minimal. Zap away your red spots today!
