Spider Veins & Vascular Lesions

The Perfect Vascular Solution for Removal of Spider Veins and other vascular lesions

Laser treatments are now a routine procedure for the removal of many types of vascular lesions, including hemangiomas, vascular malformations such as port-wine stains, telangiectasias (Spider Veins), venous lakes and angiomas.  The award winning Fotona Laser system delivers a safe, effective and minimally invasive treatment to remove these unwanted lesions and veins. Fotona’s long-pulse Nd:YAG laser offer the perfect solution for treating vascular lesions.  It penetrates to a depth of 5-6 mm into the skin, allowing for highly effective treatments. Independent research shows that over 75% of patients with deep hemangiomas that are treated with Nd:YAG lasers see a dramatic regression in the lesion.

The targeted chromophore for vascular lesions is intravascular oxyhemoglobin (blood).  The energy from the laser is absorbed by the blood in the vein, heat is created, the vein wall is destroyed, and the body clears away the tissue as it would clear away a bruise. In comparison with other wavelengths, which mainly affect the surface layers of a lesion, Nd:YAG light also targets the underlying vascular feeding system, which is important for ensuring the long-term efficiency of the treatment. This process is perfectly safe as other healthy veins supply blood to the treated area.

All Fotona Nd:YAG lasers are equipped with VSP (Variable Square Pulse) technology, enabling laser energy to penetrate deeply into the skin to create thermal effects without damaging the skin surface.  VSP pulses create virtually instantaneous temperature increases to the targeted structures only; no unnecessary energy is deposited into the skin.
