Laser vein treatment is an easy, fast, and effective way to treat superficial veins. In fact, laser technology has become an important factor in the treatment of vascular deformities such as hemangiomas, port wine stains, and spider veins. Besides the application of lasers in treating fine superficial veins, lasers can be effectively used for treating dilated and prominent blue vessels in sensitive areas such as the chest, cheeks, nose, and under eye area. When applied to the face, the more rejuvenated and youthful look can be amazing.
Cosmetic flaws may be caused by heredity, medication, pregnancy or environment factors. Most vascular and pigmentation lesions are ideal candidates for non-invasive AFT pulsed light treatments. The widest range of benign vascular lesions, like port wine stains, telangiectasias, hemangiomas, erythema, rosacea and poikiloderma of Civette can be safely and effectively treated with AFT pulsed light. In addition, pigmented lesions like lentigos, seborrheic keratosis, ephelides and dyschromia can also be treated.
AFT’s selective pulsed light energy is precisely absorbed by the target areas, without damaging healthy skin. Selectively heating and closing off blood vessels, AFT pulsed light reduces the lesions, while sparing nearby tissue from injury. With pigmented lesions, the light energy heats the melanin in the lesion and causes it to fragment. The melanin fragments are then absorbed by the body and eliminated. By providing smooth, consistent light pulses, the energy delivered to the skin is gentle and effective.
What to expect?
Clients must consult with an aesthetician to determine their course of treatment. Aestheticians set treatment plans according to the characteristics, such as size and location, of each patient’s lesions. Most lesions can be treated within half an hour, and for best results, repeated treatments are required. Before treatment, a cold gel is usually applied to the area to be treated. Then, precise pulses of light are delivered to the target area. Clients report little to no pain with AFT treatment, and can return to their normal activities immediately.
