The Science of Flaw Correction
Perfect skin just isn’t a reality for most of us, but for those of us who were either born with imperfections or developed them later in life, even having normal skin might seem like an unattainable dream. While we can’t work miracles, our MagnifaSkin clinicians can greatly reduce, or sometimes even completely erase the appearance of these flaws. Contact us today for a free consultation and take the first step to having the appearance you deserve.
Hemangiomas (also called Cherry Angiomas) are harmless, benign clumps of blood vessels which form a red bulbous area or nodule on the skin. Common in infants, hemangiomas do sometimes occur later in life. In all cases, they usually resolve themselves, but may leave behind a discolored area of skin or residual extra skin.
Doctors aren’t sure why they occur, but whether you were born with one or more, or developed them later in life, the appearance of these nodules or the discolored areas they leave behind can be greatly diminished with Non-Ablative laser treatments.
In the case of an active nodule (a red swelling) Non-Ablative laser treatments destroy the blood vessels without damaging the overlying tissue. The body then gradually reabsorbs and flushes away the destroyed blood vessels, and the nodule will disappear or greatly diminish its appearance. The treatment for discolored areas resulting from hemangioma is very similar. The discoloration is the result of the tight clump of blood vessels just under the skin. While these vessels are no longer swollen, they are still there and can be seen through the skin. Non ablative laser therapy will destroy these unnecessary blood vessels, and the body will then flush them away. The discolored area will gradually disappear.

Hemangiomas Treatment with the Aerolase LightPod Neo
All laser treatments at MagnifaSkin MedSpa are delivered with the revolutionary new Aerolase® LightPod Neo® medical laser. Delivering light pulses 30 – 50 times faster than other lasers, the Neo provides virtually pain free treatment. In fact many patients report feeling nothing at all other than a slight warming sensation. Other lasers, which deliver higher energy pulses of light at much longer intervals, result in the sensation of having a rubber band snapped against your skin. This is due to the large amount of energy being delivered with each pulse. Because the Neo reduces the amount of energy delivered with each pulse while greatly increasing the number of pulses, energy delivery is ‘smoothed out’, resulting in little or no sensation for your sensitive skin.
