LASER/LIGHT BASED TREATMENTS | Treatment for Face & Leg Veins
Treatment for Face & Leg Veins
Redness and spider veins might be keeping you from appreciating the natural beauty of your skin and legs. At our dermatology practices, the latest advances in laser technology provide state-of-the-art treatments that are safer, faster and more effective than previous treatment options. A high-tech laser vein removal treatment in our Miami area office can give you more beautiful skin with minimal to no downtime or bruising. Our physicians personally perform all the procedures.
Reveal Your Skin's Inner Beauty
Spider veins occur as a result of a number of factors including heredity, sun damage and skin conditions like rosacea. Laser therapy is a proven option for treating unsightly broken and dilated blood vessels, as well as other unwanted vascular lesions, such as port wine stains and reddish birthmarks.
Our team of board-certified dermatologists offers vein treatment with the Excel V™ laser by Cutera, which combines a KTP laser with a high-powered Nd:YAG laser as well as the VBeam Perfecta by Candela and Cynosure Icon MaxG. The laser energy does not harm the surface of the skin, but instead is absorbed by the red blood cells in the blood vessels. This concentrated energy heats the vein walls causing them to seal and eventually be absorbed by the body. If you are most concerned about facial redness like that caused by rosacea, our IPL photorejuvenation treatments may be another high-tech option. Your doctor will thoroughly review your choices with you.
Your Face & Leg Veins Treatment
When you choose our Miami dermatology practice, you can be confident that your laser vein removal treatment will be performed by a board-certified dermatologist who is trained and experienced in the use of advanced medical laser technology. Another vein treatment option is sclerotherapy, which involves injections of Asclera® or glycerin. In general, laser treatments are best suited for facial veins and redness and sclerotherapy is most appropriate for the legs.
Laser treatments can feel like a quick rubber band snap with each pulse. For complete removal, you will likely need multiple treatments spaced about a month apart. Your physician will advise you as to the number and type of treatments you require.
