532 Laser Treatment for Vascular and Pigmented Lesions
No matter your age, smooth, unblemished skin is something many people strive for. However, facial redness, freckles, rosacea and other problems make this difficult, if not impossible, to achieve. These skin concerns can result from trauma, genetics, pregnancy or menopause. Additionally, age/liver spots, spider veins, and broken capillaries are likely to develop on your face and neck as you grow older. Years of sun damage may begin to show as well. An innovative laser treatment for vascular and pigmented skin concerns is the DermaLight 532 laser system.
How Does the 532 Laser Work?
The FDA-approved 532 Laser works through selective photothermolysis. In simple terms, it is a type of laser therapy that uses short pulses of light to treat your vascular and pigment concerns. Since this type of treatment is targeted, it does not damage normal tissues as a continuous beam laser does. It allows for a more refined treatment of problem areas.
The specific light wavelength of the 532 Laser provides more predictable results than other types of treatments by treating the source of the problem. For vascular lesions, the wavelength is absorbed by the substance that gives blood its red color, creating heat and disintegrating the vascular lesion. For pigmentation, it targets melanin – the dark brown pigment in the skin – effectively breaking it down and leaving you with clear skin.
A Safe Procedure for Multiple Skin Concerns
The non-invasive procedure requires no anesthetic and is quite comfortable because of the laser’s precision. By targeting only the affected area, you will not experience widespread skin lasering and should not experience any discoloration or bruising. You will not need any downtime after treatment.
The 532 Laser treatments are not limited to spider veins and sun damage. The system can successfully treat a multitude of vascular and pigment skin conditions, including:
- Active Acne
- Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra (DPNs)
- Port Wine Stains
