Skin Rejuvenation Treatments at Vein Specialties
At Vein Specialties our focus is on the treatment of all kinds of vein problems; including varicose veins, spider veins, chronic venous insufficiency which can cause serious problem including skin changes, blood clots, vein inflammation and chronic ulcers.
Many of our patients, having had their vein problems successfully treated, wish to continue on the road to improving their general health and appearance.
We are now able to offer our current patients safe and efficient treatments to enhance prior vein treatments or to treat other areas of concern such as the face, chest area, arms, etc.
Mindy Mallow is a licensed medical esthetician with many years of laser and skin care experience. She can help patients with skin rejuvenation, acne, rosacea control, and tattoo and hair removal.
We are happy to have the CUTERA Coolglide Xeo laser system. This laser is superior in the field for its ability to treat spider veins more efficiently. We can treat veins in patients with darker skin types which many lasers on the market today cannot. The pinpoint accuracy of this laser has significantly improved the treatments of very fine or lighter colored veins in many locations on the body such as face, nose, ankles and chest area.
Another valuable function of this laser is the IPL (INTENSE PULSED LIGHT) handpiece. IPL is successfully used to treat areas of skin staining caused by "hemosiderin" (iron) due to incompetent veins. Pigmentation is very common in the lower extremities in people who have varicose veins, venous incompetence, and dense spider vein clusters.
The CUTERA Coolglide Xeo laser system is also able to perform Hair Removal, Pearl Skin Resurfacing, Photo Genesis (Cutera Limelight IPL), and Laser Genesis.
Again, many patients had asked for services to compliment treatments they have had to facial veins. Patients frequently have sun damage associated with their facial spider veins (or neck and chest areas). Many have redness and brown spots. Cutera Limelight IPL is an Intense pulsed light treatment utilized to provide a clearer complexion and improved skin tone. LimeLight is an excellent treatment often offered in combination with Laser Genesis. For best results, we recommend a series of treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
This non-invasive laser treatment effectively treats fine lines, wrinkles and large pores for an overall fresher and more youthful appearance. The results mentioned above are achieved by heating the upper dermis well below the skin surface and stimulating collagen regrowth. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness. This treatment is often done in combination with Cutera Limelight IPL for maximum results and requires ad series of 4 – 6 treatments.
The Astanza Trinity laser is highly efficient for removing pigmented lesions. This fast, easy, and highly effective procedure can treat a variety of common skin blemishes, even on sensitive areas such as the face or neck.
Most pigmented lesions can achieve complete removal after an adequate number of sessions. Some small lesions (such as freckles or age spots) may take a single treatment to remove – others can take six or more treatments, depending on a variety of factors. No recovery time is necessary, but treatments are typically scheduled six weeks apart to allow time for your skin to heal.
