Oasis Skin Institute offers skin rejuvenation using Palomar® skin lasers and pulsed light devices that deliver energy to target and destroy vascular and pigment lesions associated with spider veins, reticular veins, rosacea, telangiectasis, hemangiomas, sun damage, age spots, dyschromia, melasma, poikiloderma, angiomas from hands, legs, chest, arms and face.
Using the principle of selective photothermolysis, these treatments target different chromophores in the skin, which selectively absorb the laser or light energy as heat and yield the desired response. These optimal wavelengths of light clear vascular and pigmented lesions by targeting the chromophores of hemoglobin (for vascular lesions) and melanin (for pigmented lesions). These damaged lesions are then cleared by the body, removing the appearance of the lesion from the skin. Pigmented lesions undergo a mild desquamation and slough off within two or three days, while the vascular lesions blanch and then resolve within 10 to 14 days.
Using Optimized Light for Treatment of Vascular Lesions of the Face
Vascular lesions of the face or facial vessels are a common problem for photodamaged skin. Examples of these vascular lesions include:
- Reticular Veins
- Port Wine Stains
One of the challenges of treating vascular lesions is the inherent variety in the size and depth of the blood vessels. Successfully treating vascular lesions require destruction of these blood vessels while dealing with these challenges.
The MaxG™ Optimized Light™ handpiece from Palomar offers an excellent solution with customized features such as Dynamic Spectrum ShiftingSM , dual-band filters and Smooth PulseSM technology - which provide more uniform heating across the entire diameter of larger vessels and increased client comfort. And now the 4mm Small Spot Adaptor accessory is available for treating small vessels on darker skin types.
The MaxG™ Optimized Light™ handpiece offers superior vessel and pigment clearance that rivals single-wavelength lasers in performance.
