Facial redness, broken capillaries and angiomas (red dots), rosacea and port wine stains can all be successfully treated with the KTP laser. Our KTP laser combines two ultra-precise laser wavelengths in one device making it the most effective, versatile, and powerful vascular and pigment laser available.
Cherry angiomas (red dots)
Redness from rosacea and port wine stains
Facial telangiectasia (fine spider lines or broken capillaries on face)
The KTP laser is used to treat broken blood vessels, redness from rosacea. and brown spots (sun spots) on the face, chest, and legs. You should see a dramatic improvement in only one to two KTP laser treatments.
Best of all, the laser does not hurt nor does it require any downtime. Some of the improvement is seen immediately, and some of the improvement is seen in the days and weeks following the procedure.
Treatment of a spot areas, up to full face, requires approximately 15-40 minutes. Although patients do improve when additional treatments are added, usually patients only require 1-3 treatments on their face.
Most patients report their pain as being extremely mild but certain areas may be more sensitive, like the upper lip and nose. Afterwards there may be a slight sunburn sensation and redness that can easily be covered with makeup.
There is no downtime after treatment with the KTP laser. It does not cause bruising or excessive redness. Most patients go immediately back to work or social events after their treatment. Brown spots may become temporarily darker following treatment.
Immediate improvement in vessels is noticed, although improvements in blood vessels continue over the next 4-6 weeks. Red angioma spots may immediately turn gray-brown and appear shallower within the skin. Make-up can cover these areas up, but the gray-brown spots will flake off subtly over the next week with normal care.
