Treating Vascular Lesions of various depths with Dye VL & Cooled LP Nd:YAG Treating vascular lesions poses the challenge of coverage, as patient conditions often require treatment for lesions of varying size and depth. Integrating a paired technique, combining Dye-VL 500-600nm and Cooled LP 1064nm Nd:YAG technologies, ensures more coverage to effectively treat a wide range of vascular lesions, of different size or depth. Dye-VL leads the way with its unique “In-Motion” technology for increased safety and comfort, extended applicator lifetime and enhanced clinical results, while the Cooled LP Nd:YAG supports the treatment of larger blood vessels (between 0.5 to 3 mm in diameter) deeper within the skin.
The Dye laser has traditionally been the treatment method of choice for the removal of the appearance of vascular lesions. Alma Harmony’s Dye-VL module offers the first real alternative to the Dye Laser offering treatment that is just as effective as the Dye laser, with the safety, versatility and affordability of pulsed light. Alma Harmony’s Dye-VL technology harnesses light energy from a very precise narrow band spectrum, specifically targeted for the treatment of vascular lesions. Based on Alma’s proprietary Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT), an advanced form of intense pulsed light technology (IPL).
The appearance of vascular lesions can be significantly reduced by inducing selective photothermolysis of the hemoglobin and oxy-hemoglobin chromophores in the target tissue. This can be achieved using Dye-VL technology, a long-pulsed Nd:YAG laser, or a combination of both for optimal results. Deep leg veins are most effectively treated using the long-pulsed Nd:YAG laser.
