Long-Pulsed YAG Laser for Spider Vein & Angiomas Treatment
Spider veins are very tiny veins that appear as thin, squiggly lines just under the skin. They are most common on the legs and face and most commonly affect women. Spider veins are a condition that is caused by blood vessels that twist and turn.
This device delivers laser energy using long pulses. The laser is like a pencil point that traces the vein as it zaps it. The pulses raise the temperature of the tissue, which in turn will affect the vascular lesion. A YAG device will be passed over the targeted vein during your treatment. Light from the device will be focused on the vein. It will close and disappear after the vein is heated and damaged due to scar tissue. Patients well tolerate these laser treatments.
The best time for leg veins is in fall, winter, and spring when you are less inclined to wear shorts or be exposed to the sun.
Long-Pulsed YAG Laser for Angiomas
Angiomas can be removed very effectively with Nd:YAG laser treatments. By zapping it with concentrated laser energy, the Angioma is able to absorb the wavelengths, creating heat and damaging the blood vessels without damaging the surrounding skin. The number of treatments you need will largely depend on the size of the spot.
The laser is completely painless, causing only a gentle warming sensation, and there is no downtime so that you can get right back to your normal routine immediately after treatment. New angiomas may still appear, but these can be removed just as quickly.
