About Laser Vein Treatment
Any abnormal growth or appearance on the skin is known as a skin lesion. Some of the most commonly known and disliked skin lesions are age spots, spider veins, broken vessel, freckles, and acne. Depending on the size, color, and location of the skin lesion, it may make a person self-conscious or limit their wardrobe choices. Bella Lago Aesthetics in Tahoe/Truckee, California offers the Cutera VariLite laser system to fade or eliminate skin lesions. Using dual energy wavelengths, the VariLite adjusts to the needed laser for each skin lesion. Appropriate candidates for VariLite treatments may need multiple sessions, but their skin should ultimately have a more even tone and appearance. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Charles Virden recommends that patients make an appointment at the Bella Lago Skin Clinic for any raised growth on the skin so a biopsy can be performed.
The VariLite laser system helps to minimize or erase the appearance of skin lesions. Most patients want to have vascular lesions, like broken vessels, age spots, spider veins, and port wine stains treated, but the VariLite can also be used on pigmented and cutaneous skin problems. The VariLite system works best on red, purple, blue, and brown lesions.
What to Expect
VariLite laser treatments can be performed in the office in 10 – 15 minutes per treated area with minimal patient discomfort. The skin will be cleansed and prepped before the laser is passed over the skin lesion. The patient is able to leave the office immediately after their appointment and resume their normal activities. Full results will be visible 2 – 3 weeks after their treatment.
Most patients will need more than one treatment to get their best results, which will be discussed during the consultation. Patients may notice redness or swelling in the treated areas for 1 – 2 days after their appointment.
