Venous lakes are small, raised papules that commonly appear on sun-exposed areas such as the lips. They are typically benign and asymptomatic, causing no pain or symptoms. They are sometimes confused with melanoma and should therefore be evaluated by a Doctor. The cause of venous lakes is not well understood. The most likely cause is chronic sun damage to the walls of the superficial veins, which leads to the dilation and subsequent papules.
The excel V+ laser is an excellent treatment for venous lakes. The 1064 nm Nd: YAG wave length expands treatment capabilities to include deeper darker vascular lesions including venous lakes and venous malformations.
