Laser skin resurfacing is the use of precision laser therapy to remove wrinkles, scars, and discolorations. Based upon the principles of selective photothermolysis, resurfacing lasers selectively target water-containing tissue resulting in controlled tissue vaproization. Thereby, associated residual thermal injury in the dermis results in collagen remodeling and renetworking.
Sclerotherapy is the method for eliminating broken leg veins by the injection of a sclerosing agent into the veins. The majority of patients will have significant clearing of the veins in about two to three treatments on average, spaced four to six weeks apart. It is very important to understand that this treatment along with laser leg vein treatment do not prevent the development of new spider veins.
Laser leg vein treatments work by selectively heating any particular vessel, coagulating the blood/heating vein wall until the vessel collapses and seals shut. The destroyed vessel is then absorbed by the body over a period of weeks/months.
Laser hair reduction is the use of precision laser therapy to permanently reduce unwanted hair for all skin types including African American, Asian, Latin and any other ethnic group with dark skin tones.
