Reduce or Remove Spider Veins, Facial Vessels, & Other Vascular Lesions in Dover, OH
While vascular lesions rarely pose a medical risk to the people that develop them, some people wish to have them removed for aesthetic reasons. Fortunately, our practice offers patients effective vascular treatments that can help improve the appearance of these lesions.
What are Vascular Lesions?
Vascular-proliferation lesions are extremely common and are associated with sun damage, aging, pregnancy changes, and hormonal changes. While some types of vascular lesions develop before birth, many others form later in life. These lesions can vary dramatically in the way they look and the locations where they form.
Some of the most common vascular lesions include:
Port-wine stains. These birthmarks resemble maroon wine spilled or splashed on the skin. They often change in size and texture over time.
Facial vessels. Facial vessels are small, reddish capillaries that become visible on the face because of sun damage, vigorous scrubbing, or genetics.
Hemangiomas. These growths are abnormal collections of blood vessels that usually develop before birth. They can form underneath the fatty layer of the skin or on its surface and are usually burgundy or bright red in color.
Venous lakes. These soft skin formations are often blue or purple in color and circular in shape. The most commonly develop on areas exposed to the sun, including the lips, face, and ears.
Spider veins. Spider veins are small red, blue, or purple veins that form in a web-like shape beneath the skin. They usually develop on the legs.
How Can They be Treated?
While vascular lesions often pose a little medical risk to the patients that have them, they can be a source of embarrassment and frustration. Fortunately, Fine Arts Skin and Laser Center offers our patients a comprehensive, simple, and effective way to improve the appearance of these vascular lesions or eliminate them altogether.
The Nordlys by Ellipse device uses both laser energy and selective waveband technology (SWT) to carefully target vascular lesions at their source. This device selectively targets laser and light energy at the particular vascular lesion but is double-filtered to minimize collateral damage to surrounding tissue. This helps guarantee that patients are as comfortable as they can be during treatment and experience as little downtime as necessary.

"WHAT TO DO WITH HANGING FAT In 2020, my Bill lost 60 pounds. He was left with a flap of fat drooping over his belt. Exercise had no effect -- the extra skin continued to hang. Bill's forehead lines had grown deep. Looking for the perfect 17th anniversary gift for him, I surprised Bill with a Dr. Hartman consultation. The following week, Dr. Hartman performed a major tummy tuck with beaucoup liposuction on Bill, all done awake. Bill walked out after his tummy tuck procedure: his hanging flap of fat was gone and his abdomen was firm. On that same day, and also while awake, Dr. Hartman lifted Bill's brow, completely obliterating Bill's decades-worth of forehead wrinkles. Dr. Hartman performed these procedures with ease and skill. Despite that Dr. Hartman removed a ginormous chuck of belly fat, Bill had no pain during the surgeries and no pain at home. Bill looks 20 years younger. No one can tell he's had surgery. Friends peer closely at Bill, searching for that which is different about him: new haircut, hipper glasses? I can see them thinking: what is it? Bill looks fabulously youthful but no one can tell why. Dr. Hartman's surgery has greatly increased Bill's self-confidence and body image. Dr. Hartman and his staff made Bill's tummy tuck and brow lift surgery an easy and affordable procedure."- J.M. / Google / Jun 28, 2021
