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.

Ty and the staff was amazing. Very professional and down to earth! I didn’t feel like I was at a doctor’s office. I felt more like I was there to socialize! I’m very happy with my results. It’s truly a wonderful place."- L.W. / Google / Oct 04, 2021
