Skin blemishes due to abnormal blood vessels located directly under your skin’s surface that give the skin a red color are called vascular lesions. Port wine stains, hemangiomas, cherry angiomas and spider veins (telangiectasias) are all forms of vascular lesions. All these skin formations can be successfully treated in Baltic Dermatology clinic.
Lasers have been used successfully in hundreds of thousands of treatments. Laser treatments performed properly, by a trained physician, are safe and effective. There are many benefits to laser surgery including no needles for most patients, more effective lesion removal, and less risk of scarring.
Some patients say they feel a slight sting, like the snap of a rubber band on the skin, followed by the feeling of sunburn. Many treatments do not require anesthetics. However, some patient feel more comfortable with a local numbing agent like ice or an anesthetic cream. For others, a local anesthetic injection may be beneficial.
