Medical Care

Surgical Care

Electrolysis or laser surgery of an individual lesion may be beneficial. [33] Good cosmetic results can be achieved with a tunable pulse dye laser by selective photothermolysis of the vascular ectasias. [22, 34, 35] With the tunable pulse dye laser, good-to-excellent results may be achieved in four or fewer visits. [36]
