Vascular lesions occur when the small capillaries in your skin become dilated. When grouped together, they can give the appearance of red spots, or sometimes large stains (port wine). When spread out, they are visible as threads. Contrary to popular myth, the capillaries are not broken.
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 is achieved with minimal or no pain.
How many treatments are required?
You need to consult with your clinician for an exact treatment plan. You will see immediate results; however the type of vascular lesion and its location does affect the effectiveness of treatment.
