What Should You Know Before Going For Vascular Lesion Treatment?

What Should You Know Before Going For Vascular Lesion Treatment?

Cutaneous vascular lesions are the most common birthmarks found in children. Flat vascular lesions have a tendency to persist but raised vascular lesions, called hemangiomas may involute gradually. They are the result of several or huge vessels that are formed underneath the skin and can lead to complications like pain, bleeding, cosmesis or disfigurement. It is necessary to seek treatment for both medical and cosmetic reasons.

Cutaneous vascular malformations are best treated by laser surgery and it is effective sometimes for cosmetic reasons. Hemangiomas may need surgery for residual lesions after involution of the lesion. Use of laser surgery, successfully can help in eliminating certain targets (chromophores) within your skin by putting into use the beam of requisite wavelength, energy setting and pulse duration. Initially these caused serious side-effects like scarring of the skin or permanent dyspigmentation but after the development of photothermolysis technique, the side-effects were less seen.

Things to keep in mind before lesion treatment

The main forms of treatment include laser therapy. Surgery is less used at present as it poses the risk for hemorrhage. The patient should be aware of a few things before going through the treatment procedures.

1. Cutaneous vascular malformations are best treated by laser surgery can be effective sometimes for cosmetic reasons hemangiomas may need surgery for residual lesions after involution of the lesion.

2. Laser therapy can treat vascular lesions such as telangiectasias or spider veins, port wine stain, birthmarks and strawberry hemangiomas. The laser is safer and more effective because it proves to be useful in treating the blood vessels of a lesion without affecting the surrounding tissues.

2. The patient may experience temporary discoloration of the skin surrounding the treatment site. This blue-green discoloration is known as purpura and it usually fades within a week.

3. The laser therapy is more effective in case of people who have a lighter skin color. In case of heavily tanned or deeply pigmented skin, the laser light may not be able to reach the surface of the lesion.

4. A topical antibiotic in the form of an ointment or cream may be required by some patients after the treatment. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon.

Hi I am 20 years old female I need to ask you that I have dark circles can you give me any answer.
Yes I can give you an answer. If they are hereditary, you will need laser treatment. If not, put cold cucumber slices on closed eyes for 15 minutes and relax. Use an under eye cream every night before sleeping, drink more water.

I am a 19 years old male and my skin tone has reduced very much. What should I do?
Dark discoloration of the skin under the eye is mainly referred to as dark circles. It is also known as dark rings or shadows. Some of the main causes behind the formation of dark circles are heredity, aging, dry skin, prolonged crying, working for long hours in front of a computer, mental or physical stress, lack of sleep and an unhealthy diet. Both men and women of different age groups can have dark circles rub your skin with citrus. Citrus fruits contain abundant amounts of vitamin c, also known as ascorbic acid. Vitamin c helps slough off the top layer of skin without causing damage. Here are some ways to use it. O squeeze some juice and dab it on your skin. Women have used straight lemon juice to lighten their skin for centuries, but you can use an orange, grapefruit or lime if you prefer. Slice the fruit in half and squeeze the juice into a cup or bowl. Using a cotton ball, dab it onto your dark spots. Leave it on for 20 minutes, then rinse off. Repeat once or twice a day. O make a lemon and honey face mask. Combine the juice of half a lemon with 2 teaspoons of honey. Mix well, and apply to your face. Leave it on for 30 minutes, then rinse well. O make a citrus and powdered milk scrub. Combine 1 teaspoon each of water, powdered milk and the juice of your favorite citrus fruit. Mix into a soft paste and massage into your skin. Rinse well.

You must understand certain basic scientific facts so that you are not mislead. The colour and texture of the skin is a hereditary factor and so it cannot be changed. We have to gracefully accept the colour of our skin. The dark complexion is not a disease or any stigma. It just needs a positive change in attitude. But that does not mean that you cannot or should not take good care our your skin. So eat healthy , natural and a balanced diet. (Eat more fruits and vegetables. ) Use simple moisturizing cream and avoid all kinds of lotions and creams unless there is some skin problem. Do not wash the face with soap frequently as it will make it more dry. Have lots of fluids and water so that the skin remains supple and soft with good hydration. Avoid over-exposure to sun light. Use sun protection when ever needed.

Apply warm compresses and soak the boil in warm water. This will decrease the pain and help draw the pus to the surface. When the boil starts draining, wash it with an antibacterial soap until all the pus is gone and clean with rubbing alcohol. Do not pop the boil with a needle.
