What all these conditions have in common is that they are made up of abnormal blood vessels in the skin. They all vary in severity for example, telangiectasias, or broken blood vessels, usually involve single vessels and are often harmless. Port wine stains, on the other hand, tend to grow with the patient, usually infants, darken in color and will never go away if left untreated.

The tiniest veins can be zapped with a laser. The beam destroys the walls of the veins (it will feel like a few quick rubber-band snaps), causing them to disappear within about two weeks.
The vascular laser can treat vascular lesions such as telangiectasias or spider veins, port wine stain birthmarks, and strawberry hemangiomas. Leg veins up to 2 mm. in width can be eliminated.
In any case, the best treatment for vascular lesions is laser treatment which is highly dependent on the location, extent, and rate of growth of the lesion. The lesions are removed by light absorbed by the blood that destroys the vessel. After some time, the vessel disappears restoring the skin’s natural appearance. Lasers allow for quick treatment of vascular lesions without damaging the surrounding skin. Topical anesthesia or ice may be applied to the lesion prior to laser treatment for maximum comfort. Lasers are safe, producing gradual results. 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 from treatments. This discoloration can last anywhere from 5-14 days depending on the location, size, and type of lesion being treated. The use of sunscreen on the treated area is recommended.
