Facial Vascular Lesions Removal
Laser treatments are now a routine procedure for the removal of many types of vascular lesions, including hemangiomas, vascular malformations such as port-wine stains, telangiectasias, venous lakes, and angiomas. TimeWalker® Fotona4D® is ideal for the removal of vascular lesions on the face.
The Perfect Vascular Solution
The long-pulse Nd:YAG laser integrated in TimeWalker® Fotona4D® offers the perfect solution for treating facial vascular lesions. Fotona’s long-pulse Nd:YAG wavelength penetrates to a depth of 5-6 mm into the skin, allowing for highly effective treatments. Independent research shows that over 75% of patients with deep hemangiomas that are treated with Nd:YAG lasers see a dramatic regression in the lesion.
Safe, Effective and Minimally Invasive
The targeted chromophore for vascular lesions is intravascular oxyhemoglobin, which means that thermal damage is largely restricted to cutaneous blood vessels. The energy from the laser is absorbed by the blood inside the vein, converted into heat, and the vein walls are subsequently destroyed. In comparison with other wavelengths, which mainly affect the surface layers of a lesion, Nd:YAG light also targets the underlying vascular feeding system, which is important for ensuring the long-term efficacy of the treatment. This process is perfectly safe, as other healthy veins supply blood to the treated area and the body’s immune system clears away dead tissue, just like with a bruise.
Treatments for the removal of facial vascular lesions can be best performed with the following Fotona laser systems:
The TimeWalker® Fotona4D® is a next-generation Er:YAG and Nd:YAG aesthetic laser dedicated to facial aesthetic treatments. With a unique combination of Fotona’s advanced laser technology and proprietary ASP-powered treatment modes, TimeWalker® is designed and optimized for non-invasive face lifting procedures such as Fotona4D®, SmoothEye® and LipLase™.
Fotona SP Line and XP Line lasers are ideal choices if you value speed for quick, high-quality aesthetic treatments without compromising efficacy. All Fotona SP and XP laser systems offer high performance, non-ablative long-pulse Nd:YAG and surgical QCW* Nd:YAG lasers, which combine to offer an extremely wide aesthetics treatment range, including vascular lesions and many other applications in aesthetics and dermatology. The SP line also includes Er:YAG for resurfacing treatments and more.
StarWalker – the highest performance single-pulse Q-Switched laser on the market. With four wavelengths in one system, the StarWalker provides all the tools you’ll need for effective removal of most types of pigmented and vascular lesions as well as complex, multi-colored tattoos.
All Fotona Nd:YAG lasers are equipped with ASP (Adaptive Square Pulse) technology, enabling laser energy to penetrate deeply into the skin to create thermal effects without damaging the skin surface. Compared to conventional Nd:YAG technologies, Fotona’s proprietary ASP pulses create virtually instantaneous temperature increases that are limited to the targeted structures only; no unnecessary energy is deposited into the skin.
