Rosacea (vascular lesion)
We’re pleased to offer skin treatment using laser wave lengths that are adjusted to the treatment and skin type of the individual patient to eliminate and reduce rosacea, broken capillaries or veins.
This treatment is ideal for a variety of problems including:
- broken capillaries
- spider veins
- age spots/sun spots
- pigmentation variances
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition involving inflammation of the cheeks, nose, chin, forehead, or eyelids. It may appear as redness, prominent spider-like blood vessels, swelling, or skin eruptions similar to acne.
- Subtype 1 Rosacea: Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea, characterized by flushing and persistent redness. Visible blood vessels may also appear
- Subtype 2 Rosacea: Papulopustular rosacea, characterized by facial redness with bumps or pimples
- Subtype 3 Rosacea: Phymatous rosacea, characterized by thickening or growth of excess tissue, often around the nose
- Subtype 4 Rosacea: Ocular rosacea, characterized by watery or bloodshot appearance, irritation, burning or stinging of the eyes
How does it work?
In broken capillaries and spider veins, the laser energy is absorbed by the pigment in the blood and collapses the unwanted vein or capillary. One of our staff members here at Maine Laser Skin Care will analyze your skin condition and discuss with you the treatment that will be most effective for you.
When will you see results?
After the first treatment you will see improvements to broken capillaries and small facial veins within a few days. In some cases more than one treatment may be necessary.
