Laser treatment for vascular lesions: broken capillaries, spider veins, rosacea, and more in Seattle is not a new procedure. However, we have perfected it through the use of our specialty laser, the Clarity laser by Lutronic Aesthetic. Using lasers to remove vascular lesions has actually been around since the 1960s and has evolved in precision and effectiveness ever since.
Through the use of this laser, we can carefully target the vascular lesion and target the area around it using pulses of laser light. The lesion itself will soak up all of the laser energy, while the areas around it do not, so only the lesion will be impacted by the laser. The blood vessels comprising the lesion break down and decrease in their visibility.
Most patients say that the procedure is not painful, and stings less than a bee sting. Any discomfort also goes away right away, so it is not long-lasting. It really depends on your personal pain tolerance, the location of the blemish on your body, and your personal skin sensitivity as to whether you will experience pain.
After the laser treatment, you can basically go back to your routine. It is important to keep makeup off the area until it heals and try not to touch it. It is also important to stay out of the sun to avoid damaging the skin and stunting the healing process. Healing usually takes place within 3-10 days, depending on the size of the lesion your personal skin sensitivity.
