Removal of dilated capillaries with Nd:YAG laser (1064 nm)
Hemangiomas, vascular stars
Haemangiomas are benign tumour growths originating from blood vessels. The neoplasms are benign and grow slowly or do not grow at all. They respond very well to treatment and have a good prognosis.
‘Vascular stars’ are often solitary and not associated with any other disease. They consist of one or several central vessels and multiple branches. They are shaped like asterisks or spider webs.
Haemangiomas and vascular stars are treated with the Nd:YAG (1064 nm) laser. They often respond after the first procedure. The procedure is quick and painless.
Permanently dilated capillaries of the skin, linear, forming reticular structures. They form on the exposed parts of the body with intense sun exposure, or are a manifestation of a skin disease.
They are affected by Nd:YAG (1064 nm) laser therapy. Repeated treatments are often necessary. Treatments are 3-4 weeks apart.
Vascular malformations - "port-wine", "cherry"
They are benign, red to dark violet hemispherical vascular formations of the skin composed of multiple dilated capillaries. They are rarely solitary. With advancing age, their size and number increases.
They are treated with Nd:YAG (1064 nm) laser. Often repeated treatment is necessary. Treatments are 3-4 weeks apart.
