About the procedure
QuadroStarPRO Yellow represents a new standard when it comes to treating vascular lesions, like: telangiectasia, cuperosis, rosacea, angiomas, hemangiomas, wine stains and other.
Beams are directed to a damaged vessel and absorbed by hemoglobin in the blood. Then the blood warms up because of the beams. As a result, the inner wall of blood vessel becomes swollen, loses its integrity and depending on lumen of the vessel span – occlusion happens and vessels heal over. For small enlarged blood vessels, which usually are red and on the surface of the skin, yellow or green laser beams are used, because they are well absorbed by the blood, but water absorbs it badly. Since most of the skin consists of water – skin around capillaries remains cold, so there is a minimal risk to damage tissues nearby.
