What are benign vascular and pigmented lesions
Benign vascular lesions, red in colour, are caused by an abnormal clustering of blood vessels. Pigmented lesions (nevi), less widespread, are clusters of melanin in the skin and are brown in colour. While some lesions my fade, others become more pronounced over time.
What to expect
Clients must consult with a practitioner to determine their course of treatment. The Practitioner will set treatment plans according to the characteristics, such as size and location, of each client's lesions. Most lesions can be treated within half an hour, and for best results, repeated treatments are required. Before treatment, a cold gel is usually applied to the area to be treated. Then, the Practitioner delivers precise pulses of light to the target area. Clients report little or no pain with AFT treatment, and can return to their normal activities immediately.
Is it safe?
AFT's high levels of light and gentle energy parameters assure safe, effective treatment. Uniquely shaped AFT pulses precisely heat their intended targets, causing remarkably little or no skin damage or discomfort. This optimal use of energy both increases safety and eliminates the need for cooling methods. Clinical trials conducted by leading authorities on pulsed light document its safety and effectiveness.
No more unwanted marks
Cosmetic flaws may be caused by heredity, medication, pregnancy or environmental factors. Most pigmented lesions are ideal candidates for non – invasive AFT pulsed light treatments. The widest range of benign vascular lesions, like port wine stains, telangiectasias, haemangiomas, erythema, rosacea and poikiloderma of Civatte can be safely and effectively treated with AFT pulsed light. In addition, pigmented lesions like lentigos, seborrhoeic keratoses, cafe-au-lait, ephelides and dyschromia can also be treated.
How does AFT Pulsed Light technology work?
AFT's selective pulsed light energy is precisely absorbed by the target areas, without damaging healthy skin. Selectively heating and closing off blood vessels, AFT pulsed light reduces the lesions, while sparing nearby tissue from injury. With pigmented lesions, the light energy heats the melanin in the lesion and causes it to fragment. The melanin fragments are then absorbed by the body and eliminated. By providing smooth, consistent light pulses, the energy delivered to the skin is gentle and effective.
