Does the vascular laser treatment hurt?

Patients should expect to feel a snap against the skin as the laser is working. Most patients don’t require any anesthesia, and there is no required downtime post-treatment. Patients are able to see results immediately.

What kind of laser does Loop Dermatology use?

Our office is equipped with the VariLite™ Dual Wavelength Laser System. Depending on the specific condition, treatments typically take about 15 to 30 minutes and usually requires a single treatment for desired results. Dr. Burgess will advise each patient on their individual case.

How do I prepare for a vascular laser treatment?

The vascular laser can target pigment in the skin. It is recommended that the skin is not tanned or have increased pigment at the time of treatment due to an increased risk of burn. The fall or winter time might be a better time for some to do this type of treatment.

What can I expect after a treatment?

Blood vessels fade or disappear immediately after the treatment. Pigmented growths such as flesh moles, sun spots, and skin tags look a little lighter after the treatment, but shed on their own in one to two weeks on their own after the treatment session. Some may experience some redness and swelling in the area of treatment, but this is minimal and resolves in about 20 to 30 minutes.
