Vascular Lesion Treatment Q & A

What are vascular lesions?

Vascular lesions are a group of common skin concerns characterized by red, brown, blue, or purple discoloration. Some of the most common vascular lesions include:

  • Spider veins
  • Telangiectasias
  • Hemangiomas
  • Birthmarks
  • Stretch marks
  • Leg veins
  • Facial veins
  • Venous lakes

Rosacea, a common skin problem characterized by red, irritated skin and visible blood vessels, can also cause vascular lesions to form. 

What is vascular lesion treatment?

Vascular lesion treatment is a blanket term that refers to a group of procedures used to remove and minimize the appearance of vein-related skin imperfections. Janus Medical Spa uses the noninvasive, nonsurgical xeo laser treatment.

Vascular lesion treatment with xeo involves your Janus Medical Spa team member pointing a special handheld device at one or more areas of discolored or irritated skin. The xeo system sends targeted bursts of laser energy below the surface of your skin, heating up the damaged veins. 

This process causes the veins to collapse. Your blood then reroutes to healthier veins, improving your skin’s outward appearance.

Because the system uses targeted laser energy, it leaves your surrounding skin untouched. This means there’s no risk of irritation or bruising, or a lengthy recovery period. 

What body parts can safely receive vascular lesion treatment?

Vascular lesion treatment is versatile and safe for use on many parts of the body, including your:

  • Thighs
  • Calves
  • Legs
  • Ankles
  • Face

Before moving forward with treatment, your Janus Medical Spa team member carefully examines your skin to pinpoint all of the potential trouble spots. 

Is vascular lesion treatment safe?

Vascular lesion treatment is safe and well-tolerated. There are no injections, sutures, or stitches involved. Following your appointment, you can return to work or other routine activities right away.

To achieve the best possible results, follow the team’s instructions carefully. Depending on the areas of your body treated, you might need to avoid direct sunlight or skin products like ointments, lotions, and creams. 

Am I a good candidate for vascular lesion treatment?

Only a qualified team member like those at Janus Medical Spa can determine if you’re a good candidate for vascular lesion treatment. During your first appointment, the team conducts a physical exam, reviews your medical history, and asks you about your goals for treatment. 

After gathering this information, the team can make recommendations and develop a custom care plan that aligns with your individual needs.
