KTP ® Laser
The KTP® laser is effective in breaking up age spots, freckles, cafe-au-lait spots, hemangioma (vascular lesions or birthmarks), rosacea (chronic inflammation and redness of an area of the skin), telengectasia (broken blood vessels) and venous lake (vascular lesion commonly found on the lip or ear). Once the laser breaks up the pigment, the skin is cleared by the body within 7 – 10 days. Generally, 1-3 treatments are needed for complete results. The only usual side effect is superficial skin crusting which rapidly heals.
|Hemangioma||1-3 treatments||Redness for 1 day|
|Rosacea||1-3 treatments||Redness for 1 day|
(broken blood vessels)
|1-3 treatments||Some scabbing|
|Venous lake||1-3 treatments||Redness for 1 day|
