IRIDEX LASER REMOVAL OF AGE/SUN SPOTS, AND BROKEN BLOOD VESSELS
Iridex Laser Removal of Age/Sun Spots, and Broken Blood VesselsRed and brown discoloration treatments work by precisely targeting unwanted lesions with precise settings of the Iridex Laser: Brown discolorations, also known as pigmented lesions (age spots, sun spots, etc.), are darker than the rest of the skin and absorb more laser energy than the surrounding skin. Red discolorations, also known as vascular lesions (small veins,broken blood vessels, cherry angiomas, etc.), are overgrown or enlarged blood vessels. Preferentially heating vessel walls causes them to weaken, fall and be absorbed by the body
Vascular Treatment Applications: Vascular Lesions
Telangiectasia - Small, unsightly red, purple or blue blood vessels found along the surface on the face, upper chest, and neck. Many of these respond well to Iridex treatment.
Facial Spider Veins - Often small, red or blue veins located closer to the surface of the skin. They can look like tree branches or spider webs with their short jagged lines. Spider veins can be found on the face.
Neovascularization - An increased number of blood vessels in tissue not normally containing them, or proliferation of blood vessels of a different kind than usual in tissue. This can occur as a result of wound healing in the skin.
Spider Angiomas and Cherry Angiomas - An abnormal collection of blood vessels near the surface of the skin. The appearance is often similar to that of a small dot left by a red marker. A spider angioma lesion typically has a red dot in the center with reddish extensions radiating out for some distance around it (a few millimeters ). Spider angiomas and Cherry Angiomas occur on the face and body, and respond well to an Iridex Laser treatment.
Lentigo (Age Spots) - A brown, sharply circumscribed spot caused by an increased number of melanocytes. Actinic (solar) lentigines arise in middle age and are numerous in sun-exposed skin on the face, chest, and hands.
