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:
