The Allegra IPL is used to treat spider veins, also known as telangiectasias, the light generates heat in the veins. As with other spider vein treatments, this causes the walls of the vein to collapse. Eventually, these veins will be reabsorbed by the body and fade away after several weeks.
Oxyhemoglobin in the blood absorbs light from an Allegra IPL treatment creating heat that helps destroy capillaries that contribute to the appearance of rosacea. Over a period of 3-4 weeks, the vessels are resorbed, and facial redness diminishes.
Cherry angiomas are benign (harmless) proliferations of blood vessels that appear as cherry-red bumps, most commonly on the upper trunk. Occasionally, cherry angiomas can appear purplish or be confused for a mole. They are usually small in size but vary from 0.5 to about 6 mm in size. The number of cherry angiomas increase with age; many patients aged 30 or over have a few on their skin. The Allegra IPL can offer tremendous results for clients with aesthetic concerns in regards to angiomas
