Vascular Lesions

Laser treatments are now a routine procedure for the removal of many types of vascular lesions, including hemangiomas, vascular malformations such as port-wine stains, telangiectasias, venous lakes and angiomas.

The Perfect Vascular Solution
Long-pulse Nd:YAG lasers offer the perfect solution for treating vascular lesions. Fotona’s long-pulse Nd:YAG lasers penetrate to a depth of 5-6 mm into the skin, allowing for highly effective treatments. Independent research shows that over 75% of patients with deep hemangiomas that are treated with Nd:YAG lasers see a dramatic regression in the lesion.

 

Fotona offers a range of systems with long-pulse Nd:YAG, such as the XP Dynamis, XP Spectro and XP Focus, that are perfect for the treatment of vascular lesions. In addition, the multi-wavelength QX MAX system with Q-switched KTP is also an ideal platform for the removal of vascular as well as pigmented lesions.

Safe, Effective and Minimally Invasive
The targeted chromophore for vascular lesions is intravascular oxyhemoglobin; thus, thermal damage is largely restricted to cutaneous blood vessels. The energy from the laser is absorbed by the blood in the vein, converted into heat, and the vein walls are subsequently destroyed. In comparison with other wavelengths, which mainly affect the surface layers of a lesion, Nd:YAG light also targets the underlying vascular feeding system, which is important for ensuring the long-term efficacy the treatment. This process is perfectly safe as other healthy veins supply blood to the treated area and the body’s immune system clears away the dead tissue just as with a bruise.

Treatments for the removal of vascular lesions can be best performed with the following Fotona laser systems:

  • XP Line – Fotona’s XP line of Nd:YAG lasers is an ideal choice if you value high-quality aesthetic treatments without compromising efficacy. At the heart of Fotona XP lasers is a high performance, non-ablative long-pulse Nd:YAG laser, which can be combined with an optional* surgical QCW Nd:YAG laser to offer an extremely wide aesthetic treatment range.
  • StarWalker – StarWalker’s VERSA3, FRAC3 and VERDE modalities provide effective tools for removing many types of vascular lesions. In addition, StarWalker is also an industry-leading, ultra-performance tattoo and pigmented-lesions removal system thanks to its MaQX peak laser energy, four colors and proprietary FracTAT® procedure
  • QX MAX – the highest performance single-pulse Q-Switched laser on the market. With four wavelengths in one system, the QX MAX provides all the tools you’ll need for effective removal of most types of pigmented and vascular lesions as well as complex, multi-colored tattoos.

Superior Performance
All Fotona Nd:YAG lasers are equipped with VSP (Variable Square Pulse) technology, enabling laser energy to penetrate deeply into the skin to create thermal effects without damaging the skin surface. Compared to conventional Nd:YAG technologies, Fotona’s proprietary VSP pulses create virtually instantaneous temperature increases that are limited to the targeted structures only; no unnecessary energy is deposited into the skin.

Handpieces & Accessories
Fotona’s specially designed, innovative handpiece technology allows safe, precisely controlled and optimal delivery of laser pulses to the treatment area. More information about handpieces and other accessories is available on the product pages (see above links).

*Standard with XP Dynamis and optional with XP Spectro.
