We are pleased to announce that our office recently added a new skin treatment tool that allows us to provide a simple cosmetic procedure for the removal of spider veins, age-related spots, freckles and other pigmented and vascular blemishes. This tool, the DioLite 532 laser, is the latest technology for the gentle, safe treatment of vascular and pigmented lesions.
The DioLite 532 specifically targets vascular and pigmented blemishes, or signs of aging. A vascular lesion is formed by large or numerous blood vessels located directly under the skin, so they are visible or they create a look of redness to the skin. Spider veins are the most common vascular lesions and are usually found on the face or legs. Pigmented lesions are generally caused by melanin – the dark pigment in skin. When there is an abundance of melanin in the skin, it forms freckles, brown age spots and moles.
Vascular lesions treated by the IroDex DioLite include:
•Telangiectasia – facial spider veins caused by a dilation of the capillary vessels or arterioles
•Cherry Angiomas -slightly raised, red lesions
•Spider Angiomas -slightly raised, red spider-like lesions
•Rosacea – red facial lesions around the nose and cheeks, causing a sunburn look
Pigmented lesions treated by the IroDex DioLite include:
•Lentigines – flat, brown spots found on skin with frequent sun exposure
•Keratoses – slightly elevated pigmented spots often found on the back and hands
•Freckles – brownish spots on the skin; common on people with fair skin
•Dermatosis Papulosis Nigra – small, black marks seen primarily on people of Asian or African descent
In most cases, there is no pain and anesthesia are not needed. Some patients report feeling a slight stinging sensation, followed by some redness, which goes away in two to four hours.

Treatment takes place conveniently, in the comfort of our offices.
It depends on the density of lesions being treated; however, treatment usually costs between $200 and $350.
Post-treatment care is minimal and very simple. The doctor may ask you to use an anti-bacterial ointment on the treated area for a short period of time and will suggest you stay out of the sun during the healing process.
Results are almost immediate, and there is no post-treatment bruising. Final results may take between two and three weeks.
Anyone bothered by what they consider unattractive skin lesions is a candidate for treatment. After a brief examination, a doctor will be able to determine if laser treatment is appropriate.
Good candidates have droopiness of the cheeks and jowls. Patients should not be too heavy or too thin, should be medically well and not be on blood-thinning medication.The best candidates have realistic expectations with the desire for a quick, risk-diminished lift effect without the scars, recovery, expense or risks of surgery associated with a more traditional facelift.
