Vascular Lesions

Vascular lesions are typically no more than birthmarks or benign growths, and being born with a blotch on your skin is rarely a cause for concern. In fact, some people wear their birthmarks with pride. Others, however, may view their marks as unpleasant and annoying. This is especially true if the birthmark is on the face and/or in an unusual shape. If this is the case for you, you may be happy to know that there are non-surgical methods for addressing your problem. Bellezza Laser Spa in Westborough provides effective skin treatments using the Candela Nd:YAG laser system. To learn more, schedule your FREE consultation today.


How Do Vascular Lesions Develop?

There are several types of vascular lesions, and each develops for different reasons. Hemangiomas, for example, appear shortly after birth as faint pink discolorations and then darken over time, becoming either bright-red or bruise-colored. These can occur on the face or body. Dilated vessels on the face can occur because of sun damage, rosacea, or trauma. They appear as linear red marks and cause an uneven skin tone. Cherry angiomas occur just by chance or genetics. Regardless of your particular lesion, a Candela Nd:YAG laser session may provide the answer.

What Are the Signs?

Signs of these lesions can be easily seen spotted. Your birthmark may appear lighter or darker than the rest of your skin. It can also be red, flat, or raised. These strange marks can appear just about anywhere on the body. If present from birth, birthmarks don’t typically pose health risks. Vascular lesions that develop later in life are mostly cosmetic.

Addressing Vascular Lesions with Candela Nd:YAG

Bellezza offers the Candela Nd:YAG laser system for the treatment of vascular lesions. This laser is non-invasive and relies on an infrared light source to tighten skin by heating the collagen under its surface. This heating process effectively reduces the appearance of vascular lesions and fine/intermediate wrinkles for a smoother and more youthful appearance. Along with this, it is also an excellent choice for addressing signs of sagging skin.
