Vascular lesions are caused by the breaking of a blood vessel due to several factors, shuch as, for example, genetic predisposition, pregnancy or hormonal therapies. These lesions mainly occur in the cheeks, thighs and feet areas.
One of the most common vascular lesioni is teleangiectasia, that is to say the dilation of blood vessels, which form a reddish net visible beyond the epidermis. Most of these lesions comes from skin inflammations and from the genetic predisposition of the subject.
Considered as a microteleangiectasia, couperose is a skin lesion determining the occurrence of reddish spots, generally on the face, due to blood capillary dilation. The spots caused by blood stagnation can be greater or lesser evident and tend to occur more frequently in subjects with sensitive and thin skin, that is to say easily irritable.
These kinds of vascular lesions can be treated through the light energy of laser and Intense Pulsed Light.
The light is absorbed by the haemoglobin in the blood vessels and converted in heat, causind the deterioration and so the vanishing of the blood vessel. In this way, the small capillaries are removed.
