Blood Vessels and Sun Spot Removal with the KTP Laser
KTP stands for potassium titanyl-phosphate. The KTP laser works by selectively targeting irregular spots on the skin. Specifically, the laser targets red (hemoglobin) and brown (melanin) areas on the skin. While treating redness on the skin, the energy of the KTP laser gently coagulates the blood vessels belowthe skin’s surface. This collapses those visible blood vessels and decreases the generalized redness seen in rosacea.
KTP Laser Treats Many Skin Conditions
The KTP laser treatment can give a dramatic improvement in the skin’s appearance. The KTP laser is used the following skin conditions:
Redness from rosacea
Brown spots (sun spots) on the face, chest and legs.
What to Expect During a KTP Laser Treatment
Treatment with the KTP laser does not take long; the length of the treatment depends on the area being treated. Depending on what you are treating, you may have gel applied to your skin. The treatment itself is not painful and you will be ready to go immediately after the treatment. There is no “down-time” and you will feel fine immediately following the treatment
