Vascular laser treatments in New York improve skin toneNormal, healthy skin has even tone, and veins are not readily visible. However, thinning skin or dilated blood vessels make veins near the surface obvious. New York skin care specialist, Dr. Ariel Ostad, offers vascular laser treatments to restore complexions.
Factors contributing to noticeable veins
- Sun exposure
- Excessive alcohol consumption
Hi-tech solutionsLaser treatment directs a focused beam of light to problematic veins. Heme, pigments in blood inside these veins, absorbs laser energy more efficiently than surrounding tissues. Resulting heat damages the vein. Then scar tissues forms, closing it off. Without blood flow (which is safely redirected to healthy vessels), the vein dies and is absorbed by the body. Treatment is well-tolerated, and there is essentially no downtime. Usually several sessions, scheduled about six weeks apart, are necessary for optimal results.
This method is ideal for red, purple, brown, and bluish veins and vascular lesions including:
- Dermatosis papulosa nag
- Facial veins
- Fine leg veins
- Port wine stains
- Venous lakes
What about bigger leg veins?Blue reticular and minor varicose veins can also be treated with simple non-invasive laser treatments. Larger, ropey varicose veins respond favorably to minimally-invasive endovenous laser treatment. Using ultrasound images, Dr. Ostad precisely guides a laser fiber through a thin catheter, dispensing energy directly into the vein. This treatment requires only local numbing or a mild sedative. You may return to regular activities the next day, but expect to wear a compression stocking for about a week.
At Ariel Ostad MD PC in New York, vascular laser treatments are customized for safe procedures and the best possible outcomes. In Dr. Ostad’s experienced hands, you are assured of care appropriate for your unique skin tone and type, and vein issues.
