Vascular Lesions and Varicose Veins


Birthmarks, telangiectasia (spider veins), recent stretch marks, certain kinds of warts and some scars caused by surgery, acne or burns: these are all vascular lesions that can now be corrected without risk and with great effectiveness thanks to a laser specially designed for this kind of treatment.

This instrument treats the lesions selectively so that the healthy tissue around them is not damaged, making it the most precise and safest technique for solving these blemishes. The energy transmitted by the laser only eliminates the desired alterations, giving the skin back its natural tone and therefore enhancing its appearance.

Normally, one or two ten-minute sessions are sufficient, with a minimum rest period of two weeks in between.
