VersaPulse® Cosmetic Laser | San Jose, Mountain View, San Mateo
The VersaPulse® Cosmetic Laser is a 532nm KTP vascular laser that is highly effective for the reduction of vascular lesions of the skin of the face and body. It offers the most effective treatment for blood vessels offered at the California Skin Institute.
This laser is a powerful green light that is pulsed through a cold crystal hand piece that cools the skin. The laser feels like a prick and results in immediate blanching (vessel disappears) of the blood vessel with a mild pink puffiness. The mild pink puffiness typically resolves in a few days. VersaPulse® Cosmetic Laser is a very safe treatment and represents, in our experience, the best method for vessel destruction. Although the VersaPulse® Cosmetic Laser blanches the vessel on the first treatment, the body will try to reopen these vessels within a few weeks. It is typical to have 1 to 3 or more treatments for long lasting clearance. Birthmarks, scars, and severe cases will respond as well but will require many more treatments.
This laser is effective for:
- Acne rosacea
- Sun-induced broken capillaries
- Spider angiomas
- Venous lakes (blue-purple bumps on the lower lip)
- Facial, neck, and chest redness
- Vascular birthmarks
- Red scars
- Red stretch marks
- Dilated oil glands
- Small leg veins
- Any red spot resulting from a dilated blood vessel
- Blood vessels or redness that persist after intense pulsed light or Fraxel Dual® treatments
