Your skin can be damaged by the sun through exposure, or conditions such as rosacea. When your skin is damaged by the sun, you may have wrinkles and fine lines, sun spots as well as broken capillaries, spider veins, and red freckles (cherry hemangiomas) are benign vascular lesions which are actually overgrown enlarged blood vessels or multiple small vessels. Intense pulsing light (IPL) and lasers provide non-invasive, no-downtime treatment for these conditions. The vessels are treated by targeting the red blood cells and coagulating the vessel. The clogged vessel is then slowly absorbed by the body rendering it virtually invisible. The unique ability of light technologies selectively treats the blood vessel of a vascular lesion without adversely affecting the surrounding tissue.
