Angiomas are unsightly red vascular lesions that can occur in most body areas of both women and men. The Aerolase laser routinely removes angiomas in just 1 or 2 quick, easy and gentle treatments that only require a few laser pulses.
Angiomas are red vascular lesions that are a cosmetic concern for many people. Before the advent of light-based therapy, they were often surgically removed, which tended to result in bleeding and scarring. LightPod Neo is a new cosmetic laser modality for removing angiomas; it provides a gentle yet effective treatment because of its combination of high power and gentle pulse duration, thanks to 650-microsecond technology. The laser energy is delivered at a high fluence in order to superheat and destroy the vasculature that feeds the lesion, thereby destroying it.
Aerolase has established a new standard for gentle yet effective laser treatments on all skin types, with the LightPod family of aesthetic & dermatology lasers. Our lasers employ breakthrough technology which provides exceptionally high power in a unique pulse duration. Now the practitioner can perform treatments without the anesthetics, skin cooling, pain or pigmentary risk of the previous generation of lasers.
Results Can Be Seen After Just One Treatment
How many treatment sessions are required?
This can vary depending on the size and color of the vessel. Typically angiomas and spider veins will disappear completely after 1-2 treatments although in some cases more treatments may be necessary.
Do I need to use topical anesthesia? What about gels?
No. Anesthetics and cooling gels are not needed with LightPod lasers, because 650-microsecond technology makes it uniquely pain-free. This unique benefit saves time, cost and mess by eliminating gels and sprays required by other lasers that cool the skin during treatment.
Is it painful?
There is a mild sensation of heat that is very tolerable. This is one of the key technical breakthroughs of Aerolase technology! LightPod lasers have set a new standard for virtually pain-free treatment, even on darker skin types, thanks to 650-microsecond technology. This unique benefit saves time, cost and mess by eliminating gels and sprays required by other lasers that cool the skin during treatment.
What causes vascular lesions to form?
Vascular lesions can form due to a backup of blood for a number of reasons including aging, sun exposure, pregnancy and hormonal changes as well as certain types of injuries.
Is it permanent, or do the vessels come back?
Many vessels will be gone permanently, but due to the skin aging, continued sun exposure and hormonal changes, new vessels will likely develop over time and more treatments will need to be performed. To slow the aging process and reduce the likeliness of new vessels developing, patients should always apply sunblock when in the sun and avoid prolonged sun exposure.
Can it be used on dark skin?
Actually, LightPod lasers are the safest lasers in the industry for darker skin types or tanned skin. This is because of 650-microsecond technology, which essentially eliminates treatment pain while minimizing the chances of hyper and/ or hypo-pigmentation. Patients with skin types IV-VI should be treated very cautiously, especially in the facial region, as they pose a higher risk of having hyper and/or hypo-pigmentations.
