Nell Laser Clinic, in Toronto, provides a non-invasive system with the latest award-winning Nd: YAG Laser (the –first- of- its- kind technology) by Cutera to target spider veins, strawberry moles, ruby points, telangiectasia, and rosacea on all parts of the body and face.
How does laser spider veins removal work?
A unique, microsecond 1064 nm wavelength laser coagulates the blood in the vein; the vessel is destroyed immediately and is eventually reabsorbed by the body. Blood then goes to veins deeper below the surface, where it should be.
Benefit of laser spider veins treatment
Laser treatment is focused on the spider vein and does not damage surrounding tissue. The removal process is effective and improves the overall appearance of the varicose veins, which disappear in just weeks. Any inhibitions you may have had about wearing skirts, shorts, or bathing suits will likewise disappear as well!
How many treatments will I need?
2-5 sessions, however, this and the duration of each vein therapy treatment, depends on the veins being treated. One session could last from a couple of minutes to two hours. Ask your Therapist about your specific situation.
Do the treatments hurt?
Laser spider vein removal is a non-invasive, safe and quick treatment option with little discomfort. There is a light stinging sensation, but no numbing medication is required. The recovery is minimal with no downtime required. Therefore, clients can immediately return to work and resume almost all other daily activities.
What are the possible side effects?
There are few. For most, there is light reddening at the site and, in some cases, there might be some bruising. There is little, or no, pain after treatment. Consult the Skin Therapist about the benefits and risks of the treatment. Following treatment, you can resume normal activities.
When will I see results?
Usually within 2-6 weeks, but it might take several months. Most treatments are scheduled 4-6 weeks apart.
Ruby points (cherry angiomas or senile angiomas)
Their name comes from their colour, but Cherry angiomas can also be purple. They are papules on the skin containing clusters of an excessive number of capillaries or blood vessels at the surface. They form a small round dome, usually flat on top. Cherry angiomas start one tenth of a millimeter in diameter and are flat red dots. They can grow, and usually do if left untreated, to a centimeter or more. As they grow, they get thicker and take on the shape of a raised dome.
Middle-aged people are more likely to have angiomas, but they can also occur in younger people.
At our Clinic, we successfully remove cherry angiomas with Nd: Yag Laser technology from Cutera.
What should I do before treatment?
If you think that laser spider vein removal is the right treatment for you, there are a few things you may need to do before treatment, including avoiding aspirin, ibuprofen, smoking and alcohol for at least a week before treatment. Also avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for two weeks.
What should I do after laser spider veins treatment?
Wearing graded compression stockings (20-30 mm/hg) for a minimum of 2-3 days is recommended. Avoid high impact activity for 3-5 days and elevate your feet when it is not necessary to walk.
