There are many different types of vascular and pigmented lesions including sun spots, age spots, telangiectasias, leg veins, spider naevi, port wine stains, rosacea, lentigines, angiomas and actinic keratosis. Most of these can be improved or removed using a laser. We use a number of different laser technologies at the clinic, which have been well-researched and have clinical studies to prove their efficiency in treating a wide variety of skin conditions. One of the most effective technologies for treating vascular and pigmented lesions is the Dual Yellow Laser.
Vascular lesions can be present from birth or develop with age, or as the result of sun damage. They occur when the small capillaries in your skin become dilated and can give the appearance of red spots, or sometimes large stains, such as port wine stains. They can also spread out like thread veins or spider veins. The yellow light from the Dual Yellow laser immediately shrinks the capillaries to provide instant cosmetic results. This happens because yellow light is readily absorbed by blood to shrink the vessel, and achieved with minimal or no pain.
Pigmented lesions are extremely common and most often caused by the sun. They include freckles, age spots and liver spots and normally contain very high concentrations of melanin (pigment). Hormonal factors, injury and ageing can also cause abnormal pigmented lesions. The green light from the Dual Yellow laser targets the melanin, which is the principle component in the lesion. Most people will see an immediate change. In some cases, the lesion will darken slightly, which is perfectly normal, and then gradually disappear over the following week. This method causes no damage to the surrounding tissue and is a great alternative t invasive procedures such as surgical removal or freezing.
