This is a quick and effective laser treatment for vascular lesions, pigmented lesions, and especially, broken capillaries. The laser generates an intense beam of light that brings energy to a specific target site. The light is absorbed by the red blood cells and pigment found in the skin causing decomposition of unwanted cells, resulting in an immediately noticeable difference in skin tone. Essentially the visible linear veins and capillaries disappear immediately during the treatment. As with all laser treatments, patients should avoid sun and hot.
The Iriderm laser treatment is typically pain free and usually performed without anesthesia, taking only minutes to complete. This laser has a consistent outcome resulting in minimal to no discoloration, swelling, or other similar complications. As with all laser treatments, patients should avoid the sun and hot weather during the healing process. For many doctors this is the most effective laser in the office.
