About Vascular Lesions
Dr. Chernoff uses laser therapy to improve vascular lesions including Spider Veins, Spider Angioma, Port Wine Stains, Hemaginoma, and Small Broken Veins on the face and body.
New medical lasers provide safe and effective nonsurgical treatment options for the removal of most vascular lesions. The advanced laser treatments allow the delivery of a precise dosage of energy to each blood vessel.
The majority of the treated blood vessels will be gone within two to three treatments. The treatments can be spaced four to six weeks apart. If new veins or vascular lesions appear, additional treatments are required for optimum results. The treatments may be in three to four week intervals.
Slight redness or bruising around the treated areas may appear and usually disappear after the first week. A tan or brownish pigment may persist for a few weeks when larger vessels are involved. While each vein may require several pulses from the laser, most will disappear within two to six weeks.
