Intense Pulse Light


The Avosant Vasculite Elite treatment uses an advanced combined modality machine and offers computerized data entry to allow for highly specific and prescribed parameters. These parameters are stored in the computer’s database, and they allow our specialists to treat each patient specifically based on their findings, including an individual’s skin type. The sophisticated Vasculite Elite computer functions as an extra “expert” to maximize excellent results in one of the two modalities, or treatments, offered by the technologically advanced system.


What Treatments are Offered?

The Vasculite Elite computer offers one of the most advanced and revolutionary skin procedures available, the Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatment. IPL filters various wavelengths of light to minimally penetrate the skin and react with specific skin types. The treatment is excellent in improving and minimizing the appearance of sun-induced spots and freckles, photo-damaged skin and most benign pigments as well moderate to severe rosacea and redness caused by broken capillaries. By utilizing the internal computer, we are able to safely control the type of wavelight, duration of the IPL beam as well as the strength and depth of energy delivered to the patient.

The second modality in the Vascular Elite computer is the Nd:YAG laser. This specialized type of laser is very effective in correcting deeper spider capillaries, larger vascular legions on the face and neck as well as small, superficial varicose veins. By using a cool, chill-tip, the Nd:YAG laser minimizes patient discomfort.


Results

There is generally no down time and minimal discomfort, if any, for most patients who have experienced both the IPL and Nd:YAG laser treatments. Most patients go directly back to work, but in some cases, they will experience minimal redness of the skin for 24 to 48 hours. Treatments are usually performed over four to five months and occur every month.
