Consultation required prior to receiving treatment.
Vascular lesions, including spider veins can form due to a backup of blood for a number of reasons including aging, sun exposure, pregnancy and hormonal changes as well as certain types of injuries.
Some patients will respond better than others and the number of treatments for each vessel may depend on the darkness and size of the vessel as well as the amount of activity the patient undergoes post-treatment. Vessels treated on the legs have a higher tendency to resurface, as the blood pressure tends to be higher. After treatment, a rust-colored staining of adjacent skin tissue, called hemosiderin, may appear from the breakdown of hemoglobin and will subside over the course of 3-4 weeks.
The LightPod Neo Nd:YAG 1064nm laser has established a new standard for efficacy and safety in treating spider veins. The Neo combines the high affinity for hemoglobin and deep-heating power of a 1064nm laser, with the innovative 650-microsecond pulse technology for a unique blend of high power and a gentle, safe pulse duration. With Neo, any facial vessel as well as leg telangiectasias are treated with ease and little or no discomfort, and most are cleared in just or 2 treatment sessions.
