Vein Therapy

LegsLet your beautiful legs reappear! Show the world how beautiful they are. That’s what we say here at Your Laser Skin Care, and we mean it!

After pregnancy unsightly veins can appear on the legs, trunk or face. These may be small spider veins or varicose veins in the legs which are not only unsightly, but can cause pain and fatigue.

In addition, small blood vessels like veins and capillaries can break or become larger than normal. This can happen especially in people with a disorder known as telangiectasia. The areas of the body where this occurs most often include the thighs, around the knees, on the calves or the ankles. It can also occur on the chest, back or arms. Fortunately, we have a choice of therapies to get rid of these unsightly veins.

Laser Vein Therapy

Laser Vein Therapy is a proven treatment for restoring the beauty of your skin in any area that may have unsightly broken and dilated vessels. Laser technology has made rapid advances in the last few decades, which means that we now have a method for removing veins that is safer, faster and more effective than any previous treatment. Laser Vein Therapy can also be used to remove other unwanted vascular lesions, such as rosacea, port wine stains and other vascular birthmarks.

Our high-tech Yag laser creates a beam of high-intensity light that penetrates deep into skin tissue, where it delivers a controlled amount of therapeutic heat to the targeted blood vessels. The Yag Laser also contains a patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™) that protects the upper layers of your skin with a cooling burst of cryogen. Together, the long-pulse laser and DCD cooling offer optimal treatment with minimal side effects.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy was originally devised to treat the legs, but it can also be used on veins in the chest, arms, back and even on the face.

Sclerotherapy involves repeated injections of a proprietary solution into the veins. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to swell and stick together. Over time, what remains of the vein is absorbed into the body.

Satisfactory results are seen with a few treatments in some cases, to several treatments in others. How many treatments you need depends on the severity of the condition. Within a few weeks after commencement of treatment, the veins begin to disappear. Full results may take up to several months, however.

During the transition time, there may be reddish blotches or patches of pigmentation or discoloration. Complications are rare. Most of the discoloration will disappear within 12 months following the procedure.
