Laser treatment, commonly in the form of pulsed dye and pulsed green lasers, are effective in reducing the appearance of telangiectasias and restoring skin to a smoother look and feel by sealing off the targeted veins. During this procedure, patients may experience a mild sensation of a pinprick, and can choose to have a topical anesthetic applied if necessary.
After laser treatment, some patients may develop redness, tenderness, bruising and pigment changes. These side effects are often mild and go away on their own within a few days. Patients should avoid wearing makeup until the following day, but can resume work and other regular activities immediately following treatment. Multiple treatments are usually needed in order to achieve optimal results. Treatments can be performed at intervals of four to six weeks, and Dr. Van Dyke will discuss with you how many sessions you will need.
