Vascular and Pigmented
Lesion Treatment
The SRA Plus is intended for the treatment of superficial benign pigmented
and vascular lesions, (such as telangiectasia, rosacea, poikiloderma and
angioma), thus leading to improved skin appearance.
The SRA Plus applicator is recommended for the treatment of lesions that are
more resistant and difficult to treat, such as light color pigmented lesions and
fine caliber telangiectasia. The procedure provides a complete area treatment
for body areas such as the face, neck, chest, hands and arms. It can be also be
employed on sporadic lesions anywhere on the body. SRA utlilizes the elōs
technology which combines pulsed light optical energy in the visible and the
near infrared range, and radio-frequency (RF) energy. Both optical and RF
components are delivered to the skin as a combined pulse resulting in an
efficient and safe treatment.
Realistic Expectations:

SRA Plus treatment may improve the appearance of photo-aged skin by clearing the superficial pigmented and vascular lesions. The degree
of improvement and the number of sessions required vary in patients with different lesion types and severity. It may also appear that some
stubborn lesions will show less clearance than others on the same treatment area. Superficial pigmented lesions such as freckles, sun spots,
age spots, sun damage and hyperpigmentation tend to respond well to treatment with the SR Plus applicator. However, when the lesions
lighten, higher fluence may be required to clear them. Some resistant pigmented lesions may need a more aggressive treatment using the
SRA Plus applicator. Superficial melasma presents a special concern, as it is a condition controlled by hormones and may reoccur.
Furthermore, the response is unpredictable; some patients may show no response or even darkening of the lesion. Vascular lesions are
more difficult to treat because of the range of vessel sizes and depths. Higher optical values are needed for vascular than  for pigmented
lesions. Fine caliber vessels are better treated with the SRA Plus applicator. Aged skin with pigmented and structural damage in the form of
wrinkles may show a better general improvement when combining the SRA Plus treatment with the Sublime procedure. The Sublime passes
may be performed immediately following the SRA Plus treatment. Treatment of male patients in hair-bearing areas may result in some
damage to the follicles and subsequent loss of hair. Avoid the beard area and other hair growing zones if the patient does not wish to have
reduction of the hair growth.
