Laser For Vascular & Age Spots

Laser for Vascular and Age Spots is used forVascular blemishes, also called broken capillaries, spider veins and telangiectasias, are dilated blood vessels of various types, including small arteries, veins, and capillaries. They often appear on the nose, cheeks, chins and upper body, and legs, especially in areas exposed to the sun. They are mostly due to genetic predisposition and sun damage. Vascular blemishes can be anywhere from one to hundreds of branching red or purple blood vessels of various sizes, but can also be just small red dots that never go away.
LimeLight by Cutera is used to spot treat superficial blood vessel, red spots commonly found on the body and small dark colored age spots. No anesthesia is necessary, as most patients only feel some tingling and heat during treatment. Multiple treatments may be required and are usually done six to eight weeks apart. After the treatment, we recommend sunblock be used for the next two weeks, but patients do not need to avoid sunlight entirely. There is no down-time and regular activities can be resumed immediately.
