Vascular treatment with Cutera®
Vascular lesions are blood vessels that are visible through the skin. The harmless lesions look blood-colored, with either a red or purplish hue. Standard types of vascular lesions include: spider veins, telangiectasia, port wine stains, and hemangioma. They can occur on almost any part of the body, but are especially common on the face or legs.
There are many causes of vascular lesions, and they often appear as a side effect of aging. As such, laser treatment of vascular lesions has become a viable treatment option to safely and effectively remove and diminish unwanted vascular concerns.
How Cutera® works:
The Cutera® laser combines the ideal laser wavelength with the most flexible parameters to treat a broad range of vessels and redness even in dark, right and tanne skin. The light penetrates the surface of the skin and it is transformed into heat. This conversion happens selectively in the vessels conataining the pigments (hemoglobine) without destroying the souranding tissues. This result in the destruction of the vessels.
