What Is Venous Lake?
Venous lake is a benign vascular lesion that most often appears on the lips, face and ears. They are usually dark blue to purple in color and are soft to the touch. If you believe you have a venous lake, it’s important to have it examined by a medical professional because their appearance is similar to malignant lesions, such as melanoma and other types of skin cancer. They may also bleed easily if bumped, which can be distressing for patients.
How Is Venous Lake Treated?
Here at the Vein Care Center, we use an FDA approved* laser technology to effectively and safely treat Venous Lake. Laser treatment is the preferred method of treatment for venous lake because it is quick and doesn’t leave scarring that occurs when the lesions are surgically removed. The laser targets and heats the blood within the lesion, causing it to shrink.
What Are the Benefits of Laser Treatment for Venous Lake?
Here’s why choosing laser treatment at the Vein Care Center is the best option for removing your venous lake:
- Painless (not even numbing cream is needed)
- Quick (sessions last just a few minutes)
- No downtime
- Rapid healing (generally less than two weeks)
- No scars
