At Hermann Wellness, we’re thrilled to introduce the new Vascular Removal Laser (VR laser). As a new handpiece that attaches to our IPL machine through Novalis, the vascular laser can provide excellent results to even the skin’s tone and texture. Here, we’ll cover the various skin concerns that the vascular laser can effectively treat at our centers in Tampa and St. Petersburg, Florida.
How the Vascular Laser Works
Vascular lasers work to reduce the appearance of discolored skin by honing in on blood vessels in the skin without causing significant damage to the surrounding skin. A bright flash of light is emitted to the treatment area and forces the blood running through the targeted vessel to coagulate. Over time, the unwanted blood vessel will disperse within the body.
Vascular removal treatment is entirely safe when administered by our expert staff at Hermann Wellness. Side effects are typically minimal and may include temporary redness, swelling, or bruising.
What the Vascular Laser Treats
The vascular laser can be used to treat an array of vascular skin concerns. Vascular skin concerns impact or relate to blood vessels and can result in red, inflamed, or otherwise discolored skin. By precisely targeting the blood vessels that are of concern, the vascular laser can even out the skin’s tone and texture without causing damage to the surrounding skin.
Conditions that can be effectively treated with the vascular laser include:
Telangiectasia is a skin condition resulting in small blood vessels widening. The vessels become visible on the surface of the skin and create a web-like pattern. Telangiectasia is commonly called “spider veins.”
- Port-Wine Stain Birthmarks
Port-wine stains are a type of vascular birthmark that are pink or red in color. The birthmark typically appears on the face, head, legs, or arms, and it has the appearance of spilled port wine.
Rosacea is a common skin condition, generally found on the face, that appears as red inflammation. It often impacts people with fair skin and results in inflamed blood vessels.
- Cherry Hemangiomas
Cherry hemangiomas are benign tumors found on the skin. They’re caused by a cluster of small blood vessels and appear as bright red, raised dots on the skin.
- Small Veins
When veins are dilated or under pressure, they may become visible on the surface of the skin. The vascular laser can address this issue by eliminating the appearance of small, visible veins.
