Our redness and blood vessel lasers destroy the pigmented blood vessels responsible for the vascular condition. After these abnormal cells are eliminated, normal skin tone and color will be restored. The laser has an adjustable spot size, which allows us to treat both deep and superficial lesions.
How many treatments do I need?
It typically takes 2-4 treatments 2-4 weeks apart to achieve the desired improvement. However, the number of treatments will vary based on the size and color of the vascular lesion.
What should you expect?
Patients are advised to avoid sun exposure after treatment, and also use a wide spectrum sunblock for added protection.

Our lasers are most effective for removing spider veins (small dilated vessels) from the face, and cherry angiomas (small red spots on the face and body). These lesions often clear with only 1-2 treatments.
Our redness lasers can also help fade red or raised scars, “port wine stain” birthmarks, and red discoloration of the face from rosacea over the course of multiple treatments.
The laser emits a burst of light tuned precisely to target the red pigment in blood and blood vessels without harming other parts of the skin. Therefore, this laser can remove dilated blood vessels while leaving the surrounding area unaffected.
Most patients describe a mild stinging sensation. No anesthetic is needed.
The areas treated often turn pink to slightly red. Occasionally, small areas may turn a purple or blue color (particularly in port wine stain treatment) that can last for about a week. Makeup can generally be used after 24 hours.
