Vascular Laser Treatment - Dr. Arash Moradzadeh
Serving Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and surrounding areas
Laser treatment is the quickest and most effective way to address broken blood vessels, the visibly enlarged blood vessels that appear on the face and other parts of the body. They are fine, red veins that are most commonly located on the nose, chin or cheeks and generally appear as a result of aging, pregnancy, childbirth, use of birth control pills, estrogen replacement therapy, sun damage, and/or Rosacea.
For Broken Blood Vessels
With laser treatment, the visible blood vessels are safely removed by light that is absorbed by the blood. The vessel may disappear immediately or over time, and the skin’s natural appearance is restored. Another benefit of laser treatment is that it does not damage the surrounding skin.
For the patient’s comfort, the vessel is cooled prior to laser treatment. Small veins require a single treatment for repair. Larger veins may require multiple treatments.
Temporary bruising may result from treatments, and this discoloration can last anywhere from 5 to 14 days depending on the location and size of the vessel being treated. The use of sunscreen on the treated area is recommended for maximum outcomes.
For Vascular Lesions
Vascular lesions include broken blood vessels on the face, unsightly veins on the legs, spider nevi, hemangiomas and certain birth marks such as port wine stains. They are the effect of an alteration in size and form of multiple blood vessels. While they may be displeasing in appearance, vascular lesions have no effect on normal bodily function. They become problematic when they grow in proportion to total body growth. Some physicians treat vascular lesions to prevent them from spreading, or to make them less noticeable. Other physicians chose not to treat the lesions unless they cause functional problems.
In any case, the best treatment for vascular lesions is laser treatment, though this is highly dependent on the location, extent, and rate of growth of the lesion. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Phototherapy is a common procedure used to treat these skin irregularities when they are mild. . The Nd:YAG laser is used to specifically target the irregular vessels. Dr. Moradzadeh is highly skilled in all of these laser procedures.
Understanding the Procedure
In laser treatment, the lesions are removed by light absorbed by the blood. The multiple vessels causing the irregularity disappear over time, and the skin’s natural appearance is restored. For the patient’s comfort, Dr. Moradzadeh uses a built in cooling device prior to each laser pulse.
Large lesions may require multiple treatments for full repair, but in most cases a single treatment will suffice. Laser treatment has very few side effects. Temporary discoloration of the affected skin may result, and this discoloration can last anywhere from 5 to 14 days depending on the location, size, and type of lesion being treated. The use of sunscreen on the treated area is recommended for optimal results.
The experience I had with Dr. Moradzadeh as my surgeon was phenomenal. His unmatched craft coupled with his amazing bedside manner made for a very pleasant experience. Dr. Moradzadeh has gone above and beyond to achieve the absolute best and natural results possible.
One year ago, Dr. Moradzadeh performed a septoplasty/rhinoplasty on me. I was an athlete all through school and broke my nose multiple times while playing softball. After college, I wanted to pursue my modeling career but missed a lot of opportunities because of the external deformity of my nose. I saw a few local Facial Plastic Surgeons but after meeting with them, I never felt comfortable enough to commit. -Marry
For many years, I suffered from severe breathing problems through my nose. I had been delaying any medical procedures to fix the problem because I was uncomfortable with the process, especially the packing typically inserted into the nasal passages and the difficult recovery period. I went to see Dr. Moradzadeh for any alternative solutions. He described a quick, special surgical process that he can perform which alleviates the problem, improves nasal breathing and has no negative side effects. I willingly agreed since my discomfort was only getting worse. After the brief surgery, I immediately noticed the improvement. I haven’t been able to breathe this freely in years...-R.D.
He is amazing! Already recommended to family and My father is going in on Monday. An excellent doctor and so glad I was referred to him. :) His office staff is also on point and very friendly. What an awesome experience.-Diana
Very professional and skilled at administering botox. I highly recommend!
It was interesting to feel my forehead muscles trying to relax, but I took it easy the day I had my face done and although he said that the results show 7 to 10 days after... I noticed my expression lines chilling out 48 hours later. It is nice to have had a good experience and I am pleased thus far with the service.
I was pleasantly surprised at how the office is welcoming and they were even able to get me in sooner, as I was early. Parking is a little tricky, so I took valet across the street and it was about $10 (tip included). The doctor was friendly and gentle, getting the areas that I wanted to target....-Anonymous
