Vascular lesions are the result of numerous or large vessels that form directly underneath the skin. This usually results in a red appearance in the skin since the vessels can be visible through the skin. These lesions occur in many sizes, shapes and forms all over the body. These lesions occur in a variety of forms including port wine stains, broken capillaries, hemangiomas, and cherry angiomas.

Vascular lesions do not go away by themselves. Fortunately, they can be removed by laser therapy. Our facility utilizes the pulsed dye laser to improve the appearance of vascular lesions.

A pulsed dye laser (PDL) uses a concentrated beam of light to target the blood vessels that have formed the lesion below the skin. The light projected underneath the skin is converted into heat, destroying the blood vessel while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. The laser treatment does not cause any long-term skin damage.

Pulsed dye laser (PDL) treatment benefits:

  • Treatments require no downtime
  • Performed on an outpatient basis
  • Usually no anesthesia is required

Things to know:

  • Patients with port wine stains generally require a series of treatments
  • Patients may experience bruising afterwards
  • Patients should avoid sun exposure following treatment
