The Cynergy Vascular, Candela V-Beam and IPL lasers safely and effectively target unwanted facial veins and vascular lesions These treatments are performed by dermatologists and laser operators after the correct diagnosis.
- Vascular lesions - results will vary with each patient. Therapy with the Cynergy Laser isn’t a cure for vein disease, but it’s used to fade, reduce or eliminate vascular lesions. Multiple treatments at 6- to 8-week intervals are often necessary.
- Port Wine Stain - response to treatment varies according to the lesion’s colour, maturity, depth and nodularity.
- Hypertrophic and keloid scars - treatments will eliminate the vessels and may reduce the scar’s bulkiness, plus normalise skin texture.
- When warts don't respond to topical medication or remedies, vascular laser treatment is recommended. The latter will destroy the blood vessels feeding warts. A course of 3 treatments at monthly intervals usually is sufficient.
- Avoid sun exposure, sun beds and self tanning creams one month prior to treatment and throughout the course of your laser treatment. Apply sun block twice daily.
- Patients with a history of cold sores (herpes simplex) should consider prophylactic antiviral medication.
- Depending on the lesion and skin colour, the dermatologist might do a test spot firstly to determine the tissue response and healing phase (approximately 6 weeks).
- Aspirin should not be used the day of the treatment as it causes thinning of the blood which may then result in bruising.
