Vascular Lesion Treatment

Red skindue to vascular problems can be resolved with vascular lesion treatments at St. Petersburg Skin and Laser. Laser treatment is available to remove visible capillaries, port wine stains, hemangiomas (bright red birthmarks) and acne scarson patients of all ages.

What is vascular lesion treatment?

Vascular lesion treatment involveslaser energy being applied to the skinby one of our Board Certified Dermatologists. Vascular lasers are specifically designed to select blood vessels in a vascular lesion and leave surrounding tissue unaffected. Therefore, they can remove the pigmented tissue without damaging the surrounding skin. This type of laser can be used on children. The laser includes a cooling device which further protects the skin from overheating and ensures your comfort during the treatment. Vascular lesions absorb the light energy, heating to the point of coagulation. After treatment with Laser,vascularlesions are absorbed naturally by the body during the healing process.
