Vascular lesions

Description - physicians:

Treat difficult vascular lesions with SWT® and Nd:YAG laser

Vascular lesions consist of different types, from small telangiectasias (sometimes called spider veins or broken veins) to large Port Wine Stains. Some vascular lesions are present from birth, while others develop with age, or as the result of environmental damage (such as sun exposure). Regardless of the size of the lesion, they can cause psychological trauma so strong that patients seek professional help to remove them. Historically they have been covered with make-up, while surgery has been limited to the larger vessels on the legs. 

The Ellipse treatment

With the use of Ellipse Selective Waveband Technology (SWT®) you can treat even the most difficult vascular lesion successfully and with high comfort for your patients. The vessel supplying the lesion with blood is targeted and destroyed. Over time the vascular lesion disappears, restoring the skin’s natural appearance. 

Nd:YAG technology is a much more effective option for the treatment of leg veins. The built-in SoftCoolTM ensures a near pain-free treatment of leg vessels. Nd:YAG is also a safer alternative than IPL or SWT® for leg veins. SWT® is good for treatment of very superficial small vessels or matting after sclerotherapy. Note that lasers or light can first be used 1 month post sclerotherapy.

Advantages

For superficial lesions the Ellipse Selective Waveband Technology (SWT®) works by directing well-controlled pulses of light into the upper skin layer. The light is absorbed by haemoglobin in the blood contained in the vessels. The light energy is transformed into heat. This heat is used to damage the walls of the vessels. The combination of Ellipse Square Pulse Technology - which minimises the risk of side effects by ensuring consistent intensity of energy throughout the pulse - and Dual Mode Filtering (which eliminates unnecessary and potential harmful wavelengths, allowing only those that are beneficial to the treatment) ensures that the treatment is done without damaging the surrounding tissue, without the need for active skin cooling. The results are further enhanced by the short pulse available in the Nordlys. This even allows you to treat emotional flushing and pink (residual) port wine stains.

With SWT® and Nd:YAG 1064 you can treat the following vascular conditions with excellent results:

Treatments

Treatments:
Name - physicians:

Spider nevi

Description - physicians:

Also known as spider angiomas or spider telangiectasias are normally caused by a swollen vertical vessel with smaller horizontal vessels extending from the centre making it look like a spider’s web.

With SWT® and Nd:YAG 1064, Ellipse offers a clinically proven and effective treatment for spider nevi.

Name - physicians:

Keratosis pilaris / keratosis follicularis

Description - physicians:

Most often appears on the back and on the outside of the upper arm and is sometimes mistaken for acne. It’s a genetic condition affecting the hair follicles so the skin gets a rough appearance with red bumps on lighter skin and brown bumps on darker skin.

With SWT®, Ellipse offers a clinically proven and effective treatment to remove keratosis pilaris.

Name - physicians:

Progressive disseminated essential telangiectasias

Description - physicians:

Is a rare skin disorder that leads to extensive erythema, especially on extremities and face, due to the gradual development and spreading of superficial telangiectasias.

With SWT®, Ellipse offers a clinically proven and effective treatment to remove progressive disseminated essential telangiectasia.

Name - physicians:

Telangiectasias

Description - physicians:

Telangiectasias, also known as spider veins or angioectasias, are small dilated blood vessels near the surface of the skin or mucous membranes, measuring between 0.1 and 1 mm in diameter. They commonly occur on the face, nose, chin, and cheek. With SWT® and Nd:YAG 1064, Ellipse offers a clinically proven and effective treatment to remove these.


Name - physicians:

Campbell de Morgan Spot / Cherry Angiomas

Description - physicians:

Campbell de Morgan spots, also known as cherry angiomas or ruby haemangiomas or blood spots, are cherry red papules on the skin containing an abnormal proliferation of blood vessels. They occur with greater frequency as we get older, sometimes leading people to call them senile angioma. They are the most common kind of angioma and though normally present on the trunk of the body they may also occur on arms, legs and the head.  They are usually no larger than about 6 mm. With SWT® and Nd:YAG 1064, Ellipse offers a clinically proven and effective treatment to remove Campbel de Morgan Spots.

Name - physicians:

Leg veins and reticular vessels

Description - physicians:

Leg veins and reticular vessels are deeper placed vessels that require a longer wavelength. Ellipse offers clinically proven and effective Nd:YAG laser treatment to remove smaller leg vessels (also called leg telangiectasias) and reticular vessels, measuring between 0.1 and 3 mm in diameter. 

Name - physicians:

Port wine stain

Description - physicians:

A port wine stain, also called a nevus flammeus, is almost always a birthmark. With SWT® and Nd:YAG 1064, Ellipse offers a clinically proven and effective treatment for port wine stains, regardless of the age of the patient.

Name - physicians:

Resistant port wine stain

Description - physicians:
SWT® always should be considered as the first choice when treating Port Wine Stain, and the Nd:YAG laser has good clearance on Port Wine Stains that no longer respond to IPL, Pulse Dye Laser (PDL) or SWT®. With Nd:YAG 1064, Ellipse offers a clinically proven and effective treatment to remove resistant port wine stains.
Name - physicians:

Hemangioma of infancy

Description - physicians:

Infantile haemangiomas are benign vascular tumours, occurring in 5-10% of new-borns. The lesion normally grows rapidly the first 3 months and starts to regress from 12 months and continues to do so until the age of 5.

With SWT®, Ellipse offers a clinically proven and effective treatment to remove Haemangioma of infancy.
