Laser Vein Removal
Laser Vein Removal generates a pulse of intense, concentrated light which is directed through a small, cooled hand piece which is placed over the area to be treated. This laser energy passes through the skin to the blood vessels which you wish to have eliminated. The energy is absorbed by pigment in the blood, causing selective damage to the lining of the target blood vessel without damaging the surrounding tissues and skin. The blood heats the blood vessel, which dies off and is reabsorbed by the body. The flow of blood is re-directed away from the surface of the skin, back down beneath the skin where it should have been in the first place.
All parts of the body can be treated. In women, the most common areas for treatment are blood vessels on the thighs, lower legs and ankles. In men and women unwanted red blood vessels on the nose and face, including those associated with rosacea or sun damage can be treated.
