Blood Vessel / Vascular treatments at Laser + Skin Institute
How does it work?
A pencil-like wand is used to literally erase dilated capillaries on the face. The effect is immediate and there is virtually no downtime. You may experience mild redness and swelling, but may return to normal activities immediately after treatment. Moisturizer with sunscreen is recommended for a week after treatment.
For larger lesions like cherry angiomas, the lesion may turn purplish in color after the procedure, and then disappear in 1-2 weeks. No anesthesia is required and the treatment feels like a series of hot needle-like sensations. As with all treatments and procedures, please follow the instructions for post treatment care.
This laser may not be as suitable for darker skin types. During your cosmetic consultation, the physician will determine if the KTP laser is right for you.
