Spider Vein Removal
Until recently, spider leg vein removal was often a long painful process that involved needles and other invasive procedures, sometimes even surgery. Now we have a new laser technology, which allows us to successfully treat spider veins, simply and non-invasively.
It’s estimated that over 60% of the population suffers from spider veins. Until recently, spider leg vein removal was often a long painful process that involved needles and other invasive procedures, sometimes even surgery. Now we have a new laser technology, which allows us to successfully treat spider veins, simply and non-invasively.
Spider veins can most commonly be found on the face and legs. They usually blue or red in color and they are usually found closer to the surface of the skin. Spider veins are similar to varicose veins but are usually smaller in size and they are found in groups of clusters around a specific region.
The main cause of spider veins is due to:
- poor circulation
- improper blood flow through the veins and arteries
- hormonal changes
- genetic factors
- sun damage
How do spider vein treatments work?
Vein treatments used to be invasive, utilizing incisions and/or injections to remove the vein. This resulted in plenty of downtime and created the risk of infections. Today’s non-invasive procedures are much safer and require virtually no downtime. One of the most effective ways of treating spider vein treatments today is with laser light treatments. The laser helps veins fade, essentially. They slowly disappear and become fully absorbed by your body.
The laser treatment involves using pulses of laser light to constrict the blood vessels that are causing the leg veins, to cause the specific veins to degenerate and get reabsorbed by the body and disappear.
Surrounding tissues and outer skin are unaffected by the treatment, as the laser light only passes through the epidermis and only targets the affected blood vessels. Also, our lasers have a built-in cooling system. This feature allows for skin cooling and added comfort.
What about pain and downtime?
No anesthesia or pain medication is required. Our lasers deliver precise and customized doses of energy to the targeted veins in a series of brief pulses, which enables the treatments to be quick, convenient, safe and effective. There is little or no discomfort and you will be able to get back to your normal activities immediately after your appointment.
At Dermedica, we use Cutting-Edge Laser Technology
CLARITY by Lutronic Aesthetic provides advancements in laser hair removal and medical aesthetic technology unlike any other laser devices currently available in med spas. Our Lutronic Clarity system features a 755 nm Alexandrite module, along with a long-pulse 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser, a combination that has been a gold standard within the industry for many years. Proven in clinics worldwide, combination systems offering Alexandrite and long-pulsed Nd:YAG wavelengths are well respected. Lutronic Aesthetic has perfected this technology by focusing on building their systems around two key principles: cooling features for patient comfort and the ability to customize treatments based on patient skin type.
Pain-Free Laser Treatments Enjoy pain-free treatments, with special cooling features that deploy cryogenic freezing, a process that instantly anesthetizes the mid-dermal layer of the skin before receiving each pulse of laser energy. What once used to be painful is now a pleasant and comfortable experience.
Laser for all skin and hair types Lutronic Clarity is a dual-wavelength platform combining long-pulsed 755nm Alexandrite and 1064nm Nd:YAG laser technology. CLARITY’s advanced features enable treatment versatility and greater speed. The Alexandrite combined with the ND:Yag offers the appropriate fluencies, duration (milliseconds), spots sizes, wavelengths, thermal resting times etc. to target the hair bulbs of any skin or hair type (ranging from porcelain skin tones with thin flaxen peach fuzz to African complexions with thick black hair) and perform various other medical aesthetic procedures.
Quicker Sessions A high repetition rate and large treatment spot size offers unprecedented speed. In addition, since Clarity does not require gel application (due to its cooling features), it is possible to treat an entire range of body areas (from head to toe) in half the time.
Dermedica is the only laser med spa in Toronto and the GTA that offers this new technology. Come in and try it today!
