Leg veins, spider veins and other visible benign vascular lesions are common aesthetic conditions for which patients seek treatment for both medical and cosmetic reasons. Lasers and other light based technologies enable effective treatment of leg veins and vascular lesions by inducing vessel collapse through coagulation with minimal damage to adjacent structures.
The Lumenis IPL with OPT™(Optimal Pulse Technology) is designed to treat vascular lesions up to 1.5 mm deep and up to 1 mm in diameter. The Multi-Spot Nd:YAG with Multiple Sequential Pulsing (MSP™) effectively treats vascular lesions up to 4.5 mm deep and with a diameter of up to 4 mm, such as leg veins. The Multi-Spot Nd:YAG treats all skin types safely and effectively.
We utilize both lasers in our vein treatments. The laser or IPL creates heat inside the blood vessels, which closes the vein’s walls, eventually causing the vein to disappear. The laser is very precise and only impacts the selected blood vessel and not of the surrounding skin. The IPL filter also targets the blood only and none of the surrounding skin. Both Lumenis technologies enable cooling of your skin between pulses, which reduces the chance of skin damage, producing great results. During the treatment you may experience a stinging or burning sensation, but it is tolerable.
