Removing Vascular Lesions

Located in Buckhead, East Cobb, Midtown, and serving the surrounding areas of Atlanta and Marietta, Dermatology Affiliates offers treatment for vascular lesions to those who desire to correct skin discolorations through medical dermatology.

What are Vascular Lesions?

The development of large groups of blood vessels underneath the skin is indicative of vascular lesions. Vascular lesions can develop in any area of the body. They often appear as hemangiomas, broken capillaries, cherry angiomas, and port wine stains.

What Causes Vascular Lesions?

The irregularity in blood vessel development is what ultimately causes vascular lesions. Some people with vascular lesions are born with them. However, the vast majority of vascular lesions develop after birth. In rare cases, they can disappear while pregnant or during puberty.

How are Vascular Lesions Removed?

We feel the best course of treatment for vascular lesions is laser therapy. With this well-established treatment, we can target the lesions without affecting any surrounding tissue or skin. There is also no risk for long-term damage to the skin.

Benefits of Laser Treatment for Vascular Lesion Removal

  • Treatment is quick. There is virtually no recovery time involved.
  • Vascular lesions are removed easily from the body or face.
  • Anesthesia isn’t required. The procedure itself is virtually painless.

Is There Any Recovery Period?

Although you aren’t required to make major accommodations for your recovery from laser therapy, you are still advised to stay out of the sun shortly after treatment. It is also common that patients notice bruising in the affected area for roughly a week after surgery. After seven days, the bruising should fade and completely disappear.

What is the Cost for Vascular Lesion Removal?

Each patient’s cost will vary because it highly depends on what is being treated. Additionally, the severity of the condition will affect the cost. If you want more information about funding the procedure, we can help you with insurance.
