Vascular lesions are the result of numerous or large vessels that form directly underneath the skin. These lesions occur in many sizes, shapes and can be found all over the face and body. You no longer have to accept them as a price for growing older or accident of birth.
Ellipse SWT® technology and the Nordlys system’s Nd:YAG laser can both help improve the appearance of vascular lesions, such as:
- Port Wine Stains
- Spider Angioma
- Cherry Angioma
- Facial Telangiectasias
- Reticular Idiophatic
- Periocular Vessel
In clinical studies, 80% of patients had a greater than 50% reduction in the number of vessels and 78% of patients with rosacea reported being very satisfied.
HOW DOES THE TREATMENT WORK
Short, safe bursts of light are directed at the skin. These may be visible Intense Pulsed Light (called Selective Waveband Technology) or from a laser, depending on the condition. The system filers the light to ensure the wavelengths used are absorbed by haemoglobin in the blood in the problem vessels. The light is converted to heat which destroys the protein in the wall of the vessels, causing the vessels to gradually disappear after treatment.
WHICH VESSELS CAN BE TREATED
Treatment is most efficient in patients with light skin who are not suntanned at the time of treatment. If the skin is less tanned, the contrast between the blood vessels and background colour of the skin is greater, making treatment easier.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE
Several vessels can be targetted in one flash of light; the treatment time depends on the area to be covered and the number of distinct vessels to be treated.
A single sessions typically lasts 15-20 minutes.
Depending on the location of the area and the number of vessels to be treated: on average a minimum of 3 treatments are needed at 4 week intervals.
NEED TO KNOW
- Must avoid the sun and any form of tanning 30 days before and after treatment period.
- It is better to avoid smoking in the 4hrs prior to treatment.
- Use of spf30 is advised.
- No anaesthetics required.
