Vascular and Pigmented Lesion Treatment
SharpLight’s system effectively treats a range of vascular lesions; telangiectasia, erythema, rosacea and broken capillaries by effectively coagulating and eliminating small blood vessels. Pulsed-light has also been proven an effective, safe, reliable and fast treatment for a range of superficial lesions; dyschromia (discolored skin), sun spots, matted pigmentation and melasma.
Pulsed- light technology uses hand held flash lamps (6.4 cm2) which emit gentle pulses of light which are absorbed by the melanin in skin, and oxyhemoglobin in blood vessels. It is a selective destruction without damaging surrounding tissue.
All pulsed light-treatments are safe, painless ,non-invasive with minimum side effects.
The pulsed light is absorbed by the oxyhemoglobin in the blood within the vessel, causing the blood to coagulate and the vessel to break up into particles that are naturally filtered away through the lymphatic system of the body.
Targeted areas absorb the applied light, breaking the pigmented lesions into tiny particles which then disappear or rise to the surface of the skin as scab that are naturally exfoliated within 1-2 weeks.
The typical regimen is an average of 3-6 treatment sessions, spaced 4 weeks apart.
It can be applied to face, neck, décolleté, arms and hands. The skin is thinner in these areas.
