Laser Treatments for Vascular Conditions at Hessler Plastic Surgery

What is vascular laser treatment?

At Hessler Plastic Surgery, we often have patients who wish to improve the appearance of their vascular condition. Each treatment will be customized to match your specific skin condition and tone, as well as your desired results.

What can vascular laser treatment address?

We utilize powerful laser therapy to reduce the visibility of numerous conditions, including:

  • Rosacea
  • Redness
  • Facial veins
  • Venous lakes
  • Angiomas
  • Port wine birthmarks
  • Telangiectasia
  • Spider veins
  • Broken capillaries

How vascular laser treatment works

A vascular laser penetrates the outermost layers of skin to target the blood vessels underneath with quick bursts of light. The blood vessels selectively absorb the energy in the light beam, causing the blood inside the vessels to solidify and be destroyed by the intense heat. Over the next few weeks, the vessel is slowly absorbed by the body, and the skin’s appearance is normalized. 

Vascular laser treatment details

The length of your appointment will depend on the size of the area being treated. There is typically no need for any anesthesia, but we will discuss this with you beforehand. You will be given protective eyewear, and then treatment will begin.

The laser pulses feel almost like tiny, hot rubber bands snapping against the skin, but Dr. Hessler will also use a cooling handpiece to help with any discomfort. Most vascular conditions will require multiple treatments to see results.

During your consultation with Dr. Hessler, she will let you know how many you may need, and when you can expect to see results. 


Your recovery time will depend on your specific treatment. For the majority of patients, there is no downtime and patients may immediately resume daily activity. Most patients experience temporary bruising and/or redness of the skin, which usually subsides within one week. Your skin will be very sensitive to UV light, and it’s important to avoid direct sun exposure. You will need to fully cover your skin and use a high SPF sunblock when outside.
