Lasers have become an essential tool for physicians to treat vascular lesions which are described as collections of vessels that become visible directly underneath the skin and can be found around the nose, cheeks, and mouth, on the neck and legs. Vascular lesions often become more visible as we age, and they can get in the way of revealing smooth legs or clear skin on your face. Javan is here to help you treat these small imperfections with our FDA approved, top-notch lasers that can make these imperfections disappear in 1-3 treatments.
GentleMax Pro® has been used to remove hair, pigmented lesions, and hemangiomas (an abnormal buildup of blood vessels on the skin or internal organs). The GentleMax Pro® is also used to manage rosacea, improve the appearance of beard bumps, and correct facial veins, spider veins, and leg veins.
After a thorough consultation, our providers will customize the laser settings to selectively target hemoglobin and blood pigments within blood vessels without damaging the surrounding tissue.
GentleMax Pro® makes use of two lasers designed to work on patients on either side of the color spectrum, the Alexandrite laser for lighter skin, and the Yag laser for darker skin. The cooling dynamics of the GentleMax Pro® immediately cools the skin before and after the delivery of the laser to keep you comfortable during the entire procedure.
The heat produced by the laser causes the blood within the veins to coagulate and the vein collapses. The procedure usually takes 15 to 30 minutes depending on the area being treated. Bruising is not uncommon after laser vein treatment and should be gone after a few weeks.
