You should be sure to consider the following points before deciding where to go for treatment:
Doctor’s Qualifications and Experience
Reach out to the doctor and ask about their qualifications and experience. Your doctor should be board certified in a relevant specialty – one of internal medicine, vascular medicine, vascular surgery, or dermatology.
You also want to select a doctor who has substantial experience carrying out vein therapy. Don’t be afraid to ask your doctor about their experience. If they can’t find the time to talk to you, keep looking.
Laser vein therapy makes use of high-tech lasers. There are many different models, with different features, but the most versatile and widely-used type of laser is the Nd:YAG laser. Yttrium Aluminum Garnet (YAG) is simply the type of crystal from which the laser is constructed, and Neodymium (Nd) is the chemical element added to tune the light frequency produced by the laser.
Although very brief, pulses of laser light can cause discomfort. One way to alleviate this is to cool the skin a fraction of a second before each laser pulse. The DCD (Dynamic Cooling Device) system uses a cryogenic spray to counteract the heating effect of the laser, minimizing discomfort.
Personal Rapport with the Doctor
It’s important that you feel comfortable with the doctor, and with the staff at their clinic. It may be hard to pin down what makes you feel at ease with a doctor, but trust your instincts.
The effectiveness of your treatment is not only measured by the doctor’s skill and experience, but also by their ability to listen to your concerns, and to fully explain the treatment options available to you.

It’s no secret that laser treatments are at the forefront of skin care technology right now. They are well known for their versatility and effectiveness, and require no downtime after a treatment. In the relatively short amount of time they have been around, lasers have already mastered hair removal, as well as reduction of scars, stretch marks, and sun damage. Here are some of our favorite laser treatments:
Laser Skin Resurfacing
The Palomar Starlux 1540 Fractional Laser is a state-of-the-art technology that can treat dark spots, scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, and more. This treatment stimulates the dermis to form new healthy tissue and collagen. The laser is non-ablative, which means the outer layer of skin is not removed, so healing happens much faster.
Laser Vein Therapy
Unsightly spider or varicose veins can be not only aesthetically unpleasant, but also painful. Laser vein therapy is the minimally invasive way to remove varicose veins as well as port wine stains, rosacea and other vascular birthmarks. The laser targets diseased blood vessels, delivering a controlled amount of heat. The upper layers of skin are protected with a patented Dynamic Cooling Device and side effects are minimal.
Laser Skin Tightening
The Candela YAG Laser can be used to rejuvenate the skin by diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and acne scars, and by tightening sagging skin. Laser skin tightening works by heating up the existing collagen which in turn triggers new collagen formation. This process improves facial contours and smoothes out wrinkles, leaving you with plump, youthful skin.

1. Not Doing Laser Hair Removal
Your summer wardrobe probably includes short shorts, sundresses, and of course—your bikini. Hair removal becomes very important when you’re wearing so little clothing. With laser hair removal, you can have smooth, sexy skin in as little as 6-8 sessions. Best of all, laser hair removal is a permanent solution.
2. Forgetting to wear sunscreen
Sunscreen is an important step in your beauty routine all year round, but it becomes especially important during summer months. Sunscreen prevents unsightly beauty woes like fine lines, sunspots, freckles, and melasma.
3. Forgetting to drink water
Staying hydrated in the hot summer sun can be challenging, but it’s an important step to maintaining beautiful, youthful skin. Failing to meet the required daily intake of water may cause premature wrinkles, breakouts, and eczema.

Laser hair removal is the most effective way to remove unwanted hair. In some patients, laser hair removal is permanent, while others may require “touch-ups” annually. Although sessions you undergo for laser hair removal are quite straightforward, there’s a great deal of science behind the procedure. Laser is actually an acronym of “Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation,” and the device releases light of a specific wavelength. Lasers weren’t originally used for the purpose of hair removal, but researchers noted in the 1970’s that using lasers for other medical uses resulted in hair loss. (more…)

With the mercury quickly rising, it’s finally time to debut the summer wardrobe. But while shorts and swimsuits are great for beating the heat, they can result in some embarrassment for people suffering from varicose veins.

Unfortunately for many of you spider veins are a reality. The blue-ish veins are visible through the skin on the legs.
Spider veins can be troubling for many for aesthetic reasons. So right now, while a lot of the U.S. is still wearing pants due to winter weather temperatures, it is a good time to start treating these veins before beach season starts. In addition, treatment usually means patients need to limit their sun exposure for up to two months.
Why do veins become a problem in our legs?
Veins help blood flow upwards, which, as we all know, is a nothing short of a miracle thanks to gravity. Therefore, leg veins are more susceptible to faulty valve functioning. Pressure on the walls of veins will cause stretching and weakening. Eventually, it will reduce the functionality of a vein.
Do women have to worry more about spider veins?
Actually, yes. They are more prone to spider veins. This is due in part to pregnancy. Pregnancy means weight gain and changes in hormones. Yet men can also get abnormal veins, as well.
Other risk factors, besides pregnancy, include obesity/weight gain, leg-related illnesses, aging, prior injuries or prolonged periods of standing. Genetics can also be a factor.
What do spider veins feel like?
Unfortunately, there can be a throbbing feeling. The veins can also produce:
• Rashes and Redness
Your Laser Skin Care uses the latest technology to treat spider veins. Our Laser Vein Therapy is a safe and effective treatment. We can also address other skin concerns, such as birthmarks, port wine stains and rosacea. Our Yag laser utilizes high-intensity light to penetrate skin tissue. It delivers heat to the targeted areas while protecting the upper layers of skin with cryogen. There are minimal side effects.

Spider veins and varicose veins affect more than fifty percent of adults, but are more commonly found in women.
Spider veins are bluish, red in color and often look like cords. They can be caused by blood that is collecting because of a break in the vein. Varicose veins are large and raised, due to swollen blood vessels. Both types of veins are sometimes described as looking like tree branches.
There can be many factors that increase the chances of developing spider or varicose veins.
● Age- Veins have a higher chance of becoming damaged with age.
● Family History and Genetic Predisposition– If family members have varicose veins, it is more likely that varicose veins will occur.
● Pregnancy- One of the most common reasons people develop varicose veins is because of pregnancy. This happens because there is much more blood in the body and hormonal changes can cause varicose veins to form as well.
● Weight- Being overweight or sedentary lifestyle can cause varicose veins formation.
There are various preventative measures that can be taken to decrease the chances of developing spider or varicose veins. Some of the most effective measures are sitting with the legs uncrossed or avoiding sitting for prolong periods of time. Shoes without heels and compression stockings are one of the few other ways to prevent varicose veins from forming.
In order to remove spider and varicose veins, there are several treatments available. One of the treatment methods is laser vein therapy. The FDA approved YAG laser is one of the most acknowledged ways of treating unwanted varicose veins. The laser focuses a beam of high-intensity light, penetrating the skin. By doing this, a controlled amount of heat is directed to the blood vessels.
Laser vein therapy with the YAG laser is one of the most sought after treatments on the market because of its advanced cooling system. This significantly decreases the discomfort during the procedure.
Laser vein therapy only requires a few short visits and the side effects are minimal.
