A large number of men and women all over the world suffer from blood vessel disorders in the legs. Spider veins are unsightly little red, blue or purple veins usually found on the face or legs. They can occur singly, in clusters or in combination with larger dilated veins called varicose veins. Cherry angiomas are benign tumors made from blood vessels. Spider veins or cherry angiomas are cosmetically displeasing but rarely cause medical problems. .
The Laser Beautique uses the revolutionary the Long Pulsed YAG laser to precisely calculate and target the vein or vessel being treated.
The Laser Beautique uses the revolutionary Long Pulsed YAG laser to precisely calculate and target the vein or vessel being treated. The blood inside the vessel will heat up (without affecting the surrounding skin) and this causes the wall of the vessel to collapse, destroying the vessel. The destroyed vessel is reabsorbed naturally by your white blood cells, allowing for a safe, visible result.
The laser energy is delivered in very short flashes of light called pulses. As the laser light impacts onto the skin’s surface the sensation is similar to the snap of a thin rubber band. The procedure produces only mild discomfort and usually normal activities can be resumed immediately.
