WHAT PEAU CAN DO FOR TELANGIECTASIA
IPL (Photorejuvenation) for Facial Telangiectasia
IPL also known as photorejuvenation, is an innovative, non-invasive rejuvenation technique which involves high intensity pulsations of light (not lasers) passing through the skin. It is non-ablative; meaning no skin is removed.
IPL is very effective in treating facial telangiectasia ;prominent blood vessels seen on the nose, cheeks and chin. The blood vessels may be straight, branch out in a tree-like fashion, appear as tiny red dots or protrude above the skin’s surface when the problem is severe.
- This breakthrough treatment results in the high-energy light source”damaging” the blood vessesl, causing them to get blocked off by a process called selective photothermolysis.
- The treatment also results in an exfoliation of damaged skin coupled with the stimulation of collagen production on the skin’s surface.
- Benefits include the smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles, a smoother, more refined complexion, improved texture and a reduction in pore size
- The treatment can be used effectively on the face, neck, chest and hands
- It does not contain harmful UV light and is a very safe, effective and established treatment for a number of benign skin conditions.
- The “no-downtime” feature is greatly appreciated by clients/patients.
Pulsed Dye Laser: VBEAM Perfecta for Facial Telangiectasia
PEAU’s revolutionary pulsed dye laser, the gold standard for this type of laser, has a well-documented history and has been clinically proven to safely and effectively correct a wide range of vascular and pigmented lesions including telangiectasia.
- The state-of-the-art pulsed dye laser works by producing a bright beam of light which is selectively absorbed by the blood vessels in the form of energy and heat.
- The laser has the ability to target the blood vessels in the vascular lesion or pigmented area without damaging the tissue surrounding them.
- The body then reabsorbs the treated blood vessels during its natural healing process.
- The cooling device attached to the tip of the laser delivers a spray of cool air prior to the laser pulse which enhances patient comfort.
- It also enhances patient safety by reducing the risk of pigmentary changes, blistering and purpura.
A skin care regime will be recommended by the dermatologist (most likely in combination with other treatments).
