Removal with Nd:YAG laser (infrared, 1064 nm)
Hemangiomas, Spider naevi
Hemangiomas are benign tumors arising from the blood vessels. Neoplasmas are benign and grow quickly or don’t change their size at all. They have a good prognosis and respond quite well to treatment. Spider naevi are often single and they are not a symptom of another disease. They consisits of one or few central vessels and a great number of extensions which radiate outwards like a star or a spider’s web. Hemangiomas and spider naevi are treated with Nd:YAG (infrared, 1064 nm) laser. They are frequently responsive and could be influenced completely at the first procedure. This procedure is quick and painless.
These are permanently dilated capillaries of the skin, linear, forming grid structures. They affect body areas upon intensive sun exposure or could be a manifestation of a skin disease. They are responsive to the influence of Nd:YAG (infrared, 1064 nm) laser therapy. Several treatments are often needed. The procedures are at intervals of 3-4 weeks.
Vascular malformations (port-wine stains, cherry hemangiomas)
These are benign, red to dark purple hemispheric vascular lesions of the skin, composed of many dilated capillaries. They are rarely single. Their sizes and number tend to increase with age. They are treated with Nd:YAG (infrared, 1064 nm) laser. A repeated treatment is often needed. The procedures are performed at intervals of 3-4 weeks.
