Laser Skin Treatments Reduce and Eliminate Appearance Of Veins
Vancouver’s Pender Medi Spa in Coal Harbour is also a laser vein clinic. Veins may appear almost anywhere on the body and are considered unsightly, and a sign of ageing.
“Broken capillaries” on the Face may be a sign of Rosacea, a common medical condition. Unfortunately the capillaries do not respond well to topical creams. Veins on the legs are due to incompetence of the valves resulting in the high pressure of the deeper veins causing veins on the surface to appear. These are commonly secondary to pregnancy and genetic predisposition.
Vancouver’s Pender Medi Spa is able to reduce and eliminate veins with a combination of lasers including the Cynosure Elite MPX.
Veins and fine vessels on the face (telangiectasias) contain blood (Hemoglobin). Hemoglobin absorbs energy at primarily 2 wavelengths. Blood absorbs laser energy primarily at 532 nanometers (nm) and 1, 064 nm. Veins on the face are generally red; whereas those on the legs my be red or blue. Thus, lasers that have these wavelengths will cause the blood in the vessel to coagulate and be absorbed by the body.
As a result, Pender Medi Spa with 8 different lasers is able to reduce and eliminate veins quickly, safely, and effectively.
For diffuse redness of the Face, Pender Medi Spa will often utilize an Impulsed Light laser (IPL) with which we can target the specific concerns of Red discoloration. It is the ability to specifically target the Red of capillaries and the diffuse redness of Rosacea that makes it one of our preferred treatments. Pender Medi Spa’s IPL has the ability to select the appropriate wavelengths (in the range of 1064nm) to target the red and reduce it.
There is absolutely no downtime with IPL laser therapy.
Please book a meeting with a member of our knowledgeable staff to determine which Laser therapy is most appropriate for your veins, and to look your best at any age.
Consultations are complimentary at Pender Medi Spa.
