How does it work?
The AURA Laser is a 532 nm green light laser which targets red and converts to heat when it hits the target. In this case, the target is the red blood inside the vessels, inflaming them and closing them down. Usually the body doesn’t succeed in its attempt to repair and reopen the vessel which then fibroses and disappears, but some may reopen and further treatment would then be required.
The AURA Laser is used to treat redness such as telangiectasia (broken capillaries), angiomas, red spots such as Campbell de Morgan spots (usually on the body), venous lakes (usually on the lip), Port Wine Stains, red birth marks, flushing, and rosacea.
The AURA Laser also can target brown pigment and treat freckles, lentigines (larger distinct freckles), and other types of epidermal pigmentation.
What results can I expect?
Most people see a significant improvement after the first treatment for broken capillaries and angiomas but multiple treatments are often needed for flushing and rosacea. The improvement in the background redness and flushing is incremental with each treatment. As the AURA Laser doesn’t prevent the development of new vessels, redness or flushing, more treatments can be expected over the years.
Other options for treating rosacea include antibiotics and glycolic acid peels and creams.
What are the risks?
Most patients do get some redness and mild swelling after the laser treatment. This is usually coverable with makeup allowing immediate return to work. Occasionally more significant swelling, redness and fine crusting can occur as could bruising, hyper (increased) and hypo (decreased) pigmentation in patients with darker complexions. Scabbing, burns and scars have been reported in the literature but are extremely rare.
