Vascular and Pigmented Lesions
Do you suffer from rosacea, spider veins, sun damage or age spots? We are here to help.
The appearance of pigmented lesions can be significantly reduced by including selective photo thermolysis of the haemoglobin and oxyhaemoglobin in the target tissue. This can be achieved using Dye VL technology, a long-pulsed Nd:YAG laser, or a combination of both for optimal results. Deep veins are most effectively treated using the long-pulsed Nd:YAG laser.
Alma Harmony’s Dye VL technology harnesses light energy from a very precise narrowband spectrum (500 to 600 nm), specifically targeted for the treatment of vascular lesions. For more information on this procedure, contact Blue Light Dental Clinic.
Varicose and spider veins treatment
Varicose and spider veins are blood vessels that become enlarged and visible due to weakened valves, which cause blood to pool rather than flow. Harmony’s vascular treatments offer an effective, non-invasive solution that closes these veins and reduces or eliminates their appearance.
Dye-VL indications (500-600 nm)
- Benign pigmented epidermal lesions
- Benign cutaneous vascular lesions
- Portwine stains
- Facial and truncal telangiectasia
Side effects of Dye VL laser
Patients may experience mild swelling and redness, but these disappear quickly and ice is applied to minimise irritation. Apart from these, the only side effect of using the Dye VL laser for rosacea, varicose veins or age spots is significantly rejuvenated skin!
- Suitable only for certain skin types: this is not suitable for tanned or dark skin
- We recommend three treatments every four weeks for the best results
- A test patch must be done one week prior to the treatment
- Pure Aloe Vera gel is to be used in between sessions to protect and look after the skin
- Patients can expect two to five days downtime or longer if treating the body (note that treated areas will appear darker to begin with and then gradually fade).
