Vein Reduction / Pigmented Lesion Removal

Laser Training Course: 8 Hours

This seminar provides classroom theory and clinical hands-on practice with small vessel/telangiectasia reduction. Students will also learn isolated pigmented lesion removal procedures. These procedures will enhance a spa/clinic's ability to meet the demands of reversing the signs of aging.

Spider Veins are small blood vessels near the surface of the skin that are dilated and therefore visible. They can show up as a single thread or as a cluster, like a spiderweb (hence the name). Fortunately, they aren't essential for circulation. Heredity is the primary cause, though women are more susceptible to spider veins than men are. Sitting or standing for too long can exacerbate them.

Before and After of Vein Reduction / Pigmented Lesion Removal


Pigmented lesions are dark areas or higher concentrations of melanin in the skin that many people are trying to get rid of. They are usually located in the dermal-epidermal junction and are superficial. Sun exposure and damage can cause a person to have pigmented lesions. These are sometimes called:

  • solar spots
  • age spots
  • freckles
  • solar lentigines
  • lentigos
  • moles
  • or port wine stains

With treatments you will reduce the appearance of sun damage by reducing the solar pigmented lesions.

Skin tags are bits of skin- or flesh-colored tissue that project from the surrounding skin from a small, narrow stalk. Some people call these growths "skin tabs" or barnacles. Skin tags typically occur in characteristic locations, including the base of the neck, underarms, eyelids, groin folds, and under the breasts (especially where underwire bras rub directly beneath the breasts). Although skin tags may vary somewhat in appearance, they are usually smooth or slightly wrinkled and irregular, flesh-colored or slightly more brown, and hang from the skin by a small stalk.

Early or beginning skin tags may be as small as a flattened pinhead-sized bump. While most tags typically are small (2-5 mm in diameter) at approximately one-third to one-half the size of a pinky fingernail, some skin tags may become as large as a big grape (1 cm in diameter) or a fig (5 cm in diameter).

Sebaceous Hyperlasia is a common, benign condition of sebaceous glands in adults of middle age or older. Lesions can be single or multiple and manifest as yellowish, soft, small papules on the face (particularly nose, cheeks, and forehead).

On top of bestowing the latest in medical aesthetic instruction, Avante Laser Training Institute is recognized by the Texas Department of Licensing and Registration as a certification training enterprise for Laser Hair Removal candidates. The State of Texas introduced new guidelines in 2010 which requires each Laser Hair Removal provider to comply with the conditions of Texas Administrative Code 289.302. This directive creates requirements for radiation safeness in the using of lasers and pulsed light devices for hair removal treatments. Pointedly in Section 289.302 (i-j), the Texas Department of Licensing and Registration mandates qualification for all individuals using a laser hair removal device in Texas.

We provide the state certification examination for technicians desiring to become Certified Laser Hair Removal Specialists.
