Not all red lesions are created equal. Although red pigment issues may look like they are from derived from the same set of issues, this may not necessarily be the case. As a result the procedure protocol will be determined by the root of the issue in order to get your desired end point.
Modalities, wavelengths, and methods of application will range and will be adjusted accordingly.
What are Spider Veins?
Spider veins, also known as “Telangiectasia” are dilated or disetended (broken) capillaries superficially visible on the skin. They are red, blue or purple thread-like lines, and may develop on any part of the body, including the face, but are most often apparent on the thighs, calves or buttocks. It is estimated that more than 75% of females over the age of 18 are troubled by spider veins, although it is also common among children and men alike. Not all cases of facial vasculur matting is rosacia, but those with rosacia will have facial vasculur matting.
What is Laser Spider Vein Removal?
Laser technology offers a very effective means of treating spider veins. The laser has a unique ability to selectively target blood vessels without adversely affecting surrounding tissues. Laser light is specifically absorbed by the veins. The vessels are gently heated, causing the blood in the vessels to collapse by coagulation. The body absorbs the fluid in the treated vessel during the natural healing process. This absorption may take up to as little as a few days or up to several weeks, after which the appearance of the vessel will be greatly diminished.
Ruby Points or Cherry Angiomas
Cherry angiomas, also known as red moles or ruby points, are common skin growths that can develop on most areas of the body. These are collections of small blood vessels within the angioma, which grants it a reddish appearance. Ruby points can be found on people of ages 30 or over. Cherry angiomas can be treated in much the same way as broken capillaries and often yield satisfactory results within a single treatment.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Usually you will only require a single treatment, though depending upon the severity of the veins in particular where an individual has severe vasculur matting on the face or legs you could potentially need two or more treatments. These treatments are performed upon the existing blood vessels, which may or may not vanish while treatment is in progress.
