The Iridex Laser’s wavelength and adjustable settings make it highly effective in targeting blood vessels associated with vascular lesions. Whether dealing with spider veins, hemangiomas, or port wine stains, the laser’s precision allows for selective photothermolysis, where the targeted blood vessels absorb the laser energy and are subsequently coagulated and eliminated. This results in a significant reduction or complete removal of vascular lesions, with minimal damage to surrounding tissues.
In addressing pigmented lesions such as age spots, freckles, and certain types of birthmarks, the Iridex Laser’s capabilities shine. Through the process of selective photothermolysis, the laser targets the melanin in the pigmented cells. The absorbed energy breaks down the pigmentation, prompting the body’s natural processes to gradually eliminate the treated lesions. The precision of the Iridex Laser ensures that surrounding skin is spared, minimizing the risk of scarring or discoloration.

Precision and Control
The Iridex Laser allows practitioners to precisely control the energy delivered, ensuring that only the targeted lesions are affected. This precision is crucial in dermatological procedures to minimize damage to surrounding healthy tissue.
The non-invasive nature of the laser treatments using Iridex makes it a preferred choice for patients seeking a less disruptive approach to lesion removal. This often translates to quicker recovery times and reduced discomfort.
