Vascular / pigment lasers target the red capillaries and spider veins as well as brown spots caused by sun damage and aging. Fractionated resurfacing lasers are used for tightening and smoothing of the skin.
The vascular / pigment lasers produce mild skin irritation and swelling that resolves within a couple of days. The laser light can produce improvement of capillary vessels on the face, redness of scars, or brown spots caused by sun damage and aging.
Fractionated lasers for skin resurfacing create microperforations in the superficial layers of the skin. The energy delivered to the deeper layers cause tightening of the dermis and surface smoothing. After treatment, the skin develops a brownish peel on the surface that takes up to a week to come off. The newly healed skin remains red for few weeks after the treatment. Redness duration depends on the intensity of treatment and the nature of the patient’s skin.
