The commonest vascular lesions are typically prominent capillaries often visible on the nose and cheeks (but also other areas on the face). They are commonly referred to as “broken capillaries”. These abnormal capillaries can range from just a few to numerous capillaries creating a significant abnormal redness over a wider area.
Other benign abnormal vascular (red) type lesions exist as more prominent localised spots.
Broken capillaries, localised red spots or other blood vessel-related lesions all have one thing in common – they are all termed vascular lesions. These problems are common on the face and other parts of the body and can be quite visible. They are typically benign and readily treatable in the right hands. Would you like to have your vascular lesions removed? Well, Bella Plastic Surgery has good news for you!
What are vascular lesions?
Vascular lesions occur when small blood capillaries in the skin become dilated. When grouped together vascular lesions can give the appearance of red spots and are often defined as Cherry Angiomas (small area) or Port Wine (larger area). When the blood vessels are enlarged and spread out, they are visible ‘threads’ known as Telangiectasia.
What can I expect in the treatment?
Prior to treatment your skin will be cleansed and a set of clinical photos will be taken of the areas to be treated. The vascular lesion will then be removed within minutes using our state-of-the-art laser technology which is the only laser designed with a small pen-tip head, shaped to specifically target vascular lesions, leaving the surrounding skin untouched.
Benefits of Vascular Lesions Removal
Most laser or IPL devices utilise a large headpiece that shrinks the blood vessels. This will often lead to a return of blood vessels within weeks or months following treatment.
Our advanced laser technology targets the blood vessels one-by-one until completely removed at the time of treatment.
This is a walk-in, walk-out treatment that is performed within minutes.
How long does the procedure take?
The laser vascular removal procedure takes only 5-10 minutes, however, we allow 30 minutes for your appointment as this will allow time to complete a Patient Registration Form and receive a free consultation.
How many treatments will I need?
Our innovative laser technology facilitates the removal of vascular lesions instantly at the time of treatment. In cases where the vascular lesion is large, such as a vascular birthmark or mild-severe Telangiectasia, additional laser treatments may be required.
Is the treatment painful?
Topical and or local anaesthetic can be administered prior to your treatment to ensure you are kept very comfortable.
Post treatment results
Following your treatment, some redness, swelling and skin blistering may occur at the site of treatment. The skin will begin to scab and heal over the coming week or two post treatment. You can apply makeup to conceal the treated area(s) following your treatment.
