Vascular Lesions Vancouver

A vascular lesion is a blood vessel that has become visible from underneath the skin and is usually blood colored with either a purple or reddish tone. They can form in a number of places on the body but are usually reported on the face and legs.

How it works

skin resurfacing vancouver
At First Ave Medical Spa, we use a trusted technology that has proven to be exceptionally effective in the targeted treatment of a range of vascular lesions.

We use a patented system called the Gentle Max PRO to deliver treatment for vascular lesions. This system uses laser technology to deliver light-based energy to the skin that impacts the veins, and in turn, leads to the disappearance of visible vascular lesions.

We would always welcome clients to meet with us in the first instance, as this allows us to asses the severity and condition of the vascular lesions. Once we do this, we can then provide you with a treatment plan, outlining the expected number of sessions needed to help achieve the desired results.

Using the Gentle Max PRO system, we direct the laser energy onto the target area. The action of doing this will cause the blood inside to coagulate. As the treatments process, the vein will eventually collapse leading to the disappearance of the lesion.

Another appealing element of this vascular lesion treatment is the welcome addition of a cooling device. With each laser pulse that is delivered, it released a cooling burst of cryogen in order to instantly cool the target area and lessen the sensations that are common with any type of laser treatment.

  • What are side effects?
    We have used the Gentle Max PRO system to help clients treat a range of vascular lesions and can report that most of our clients have reported very few side effects if any at all. The most common side-effects of laser treatment for spider veins are a slight swelling that is localized to the treatment area and a slight reddening of the skin immediately after the treatment is performed. If these do occur, they will usually subside in the following 24 hours after the treatment has taken place.

    Drawing on the experience of the entire industry, we can report that in some instances, very rarely, there have been reports of blistering and bruising.

    A full consultation is always advised so that we may review any past or current medical conditions as well as being able to physically examine the area/s you wish to be treated.

  • Is the treatment painful?
    As with all laser-based therapy, there is a minimal and manageable level of discomfort that is experienced during the treatment session. The easiest way to explain this is akin to a slight pinching sensation which occurs as the laser pulses are delivered. Some clients say that it feels very similar to when they are using tweezers to pluck their eyebrows.

    Once the treatment has taken place, there is no reported pain and only in some cases is there a slight swelling that can occur.

  • How many sessions will I need?
    The majority of clients who book a laser treatment for vascular lesions will have between 1-3 sessions. However, the exact number of treatments required will depend on the size and severity of the area/s you want to treat.

    We always provide our clients will a tailored plan that looks at this in advance, helping you have a clear indication from the start about how many treatments are needed in order to deliver the desired results.
