|Cosmetic flaws may be caused by heredity, medication, pregnancy or environmental factors. Yet most vascular and pigmented lesions are ideal candidates for non-invasive AFT pulsed light treatments The widest range of benign vascular lesions, like telangiectasias, hemangiomas, erythema, rosacea and poikiloderma of Civette can be safely and effectively treated with AFT pulsed light. These benign vascular lesions, red in colour, are caused by an abnormal clustering of blood vessels. In addition pigmented lesions like lentigos, seborrheic keratoses, café-au-lait, ephelides and dyschromia can also be treated. These pigmented lesions(nevi), are less widespread and are clusters of melanin in the skin and are brown in colour.
Selective pulsed light energy is precisely absorbed by the target areas, without damaging healthy skin. Selectively heating and closing off blood vessels, AFT pulsed light reduces the lesion, while sparing nearby tissue from injury. For larger and deeper vessels on the face and nose the Nd:Yag laser works in exactly the same way.
With pigmented lesions, the light energy heats the melanin in the lesion and causes it to fragment. The melanin fragments are then absorbed by the body and eliminated. By providing smooth, consistent light pulses, the energy delivered to the skin is gentle and effective.
