What are vascular lesions?
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.
How does the treatment work?
The yellow light from the Dual Yellow laser is immediately absorbed by oxyhaemoglobin providing instant cosmetic results. This happens because yellow light is readily absorbed by blood to necrose the vessel, and is achieved with minimal or no pain. The specific wavelength of 578nm exactly matches the peak absorption of Haemoglobin.
