Laser Skin Treatment for Spider Veins

nosebefore

To the majority of us spider veins are cosmetically undesirable and can make the face appear older, flushed, or blemished. Spider veins are a common development from sun damage and aging. Certain medical conditions and habits (smoking and alcohol) can also promote their development. This type of vascular lesion is formed by abnormally large or numerous blood vessels located directly under the surface of the skin. These vessels may be visible through the skin or result in a red appearance of the skin and can be eliminated with laser skin treatment.

Spider veins usually take on one of three basic patterns. They may appear in a true spider shape with a group of veins radiating outward from a dark central point; they may be absorbing and will resemble tiny branch-like shapes; or they may be simple linear and appear as thin separate lines. During your treatment the laser used will emit a beam of light that is absorbed by melanin (pigment) in the skin and blood in the vessel. This will either break down the melanin or collapse the blood vessel, getting rid of pigmented lesions. Typically one to four treatment is needed for facial spider veins.

The treatment is fast and simple and typically offers no down time. Patients can resume normal activities almost immediately after having this procedure done. There can be some redness which usually goes away in two to three hours and swelling, if any, may last one to two days. Final treatment results should be evident within 10-14 days for this type of vascular lesion.  Clients should note that sun screen must be worn after the treatment but not to worry, Dermaworks Medical Aesthetic Clinic offers a fabulous sun screen, Nature’s Veil, available for purchase at the time of your appointment.

Laser skin treatment is amazing medical technology that has helped millions of people completely eliminate their facial spider veins. You could be next. Contact us today to book your consultation with our physician.

More About Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing

Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing treatment with DOT (Dermal Optical Thermolysis) Therapy is the newest addition to the services we offer at our clinic, and you can get 10% of the procedure if you book now at (613) 667-9455 or by email!

According to Macrene Alexiades-Armenakas, MD, phD, assistant clinical professor at Yale University School of Medicine, “the emergence of ablative fractional CO2 is one of the most important advances in laser and light-based aesthetic medicine since traditional CO2 laser resurfacing. It is the culmination of more than 15 years of clinical experience and research.”

Our CO2 device is a revolutionary new laser that combines the long standing effectiveness of the CO2 with fractional technology to deliver a gentle yet powerful nonsurgical treatment that safely revitalizes the skin. It can resurface the skin as well as rejuvenate collagen production in a uniform and homogenous treatment.

About the procedure
The procedure is performed at the Dermaworks clinic. A topical anesthetic can be applied beforehand to ease discomfort. The area to be treated is defined and then cleaned with alcohol (males patients may need to have the area shaved). After the skin has dried completely, the area is exposed to the mobile and compact CO2 device, which operates on 110 volts.

The intensity of the laser, pulse width, and the spacing of fractional beams may be adjusted according to the type of problem and patient. It may even be customized to make it more compatible to a patient’s lifestyle. For example, if a patient is able to reserve some time for recovery, the intensity of the device may be increased to achieve more dramatic results in a single session. For those with a hectic schedule, “lunch hour” treatments can be milder. Intensity may also vary in a single session, increasing aggressiveness in areas that require deeper correction. Needless to say, the more aggressive a procedure is, the longer the recovery.
