Treatment of Spider Veins and Vascular Lesions

Leg veins, spider veins and other benign vascular lesions are among the most frequent and challenging aesthetic complaints. Vascular treatment using ND-Yag intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy is a non-surgical way to safely and effectively treat unsightly leg veins, as well as vascular and pigmented legions on areas of the face, neck, hands, chest or legs. Vascular treatments using the IPL require no needles or compression wrapping and there is no downtime.

With So Many Clinics Offering Treatment of Spider Veins and Vascular Lesions, How Do I Choose the Right Place for My Treatment?

Lasers are medical devices which require training and knowledge - and above all, constant medical supervision - for safe and effective operation. Discount laser clinics might offer lower fees and faster treatment times, but they will not be able to offer you the same level of medical expertise offered by a reputable medical office - especially that of a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon.

How does IPL for spider veins and vascular lesions work?

Laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) pulses are directed at the spider and varicose veins as well as vascular birth marks. The tissue targeted is the hemoglobin in the blood. A highly advanced computer regulates the light pulse to a specific wavelength range, which in turn heats the visible, targeted blood vessel(s), thereby damaging or otherwise destroying the targeted lesion while sparing the surrounding healthy or normal tissue. Over time the destroyed veins are reabsorbed and disappear.

The key to effective treatment of vascular lesions is in finding the optimal wavelength in which absorption of the pigment of the skin (or blood vessels) is maximized. Certain wavelengths of light capture and maximize this absorption differential - which results in effective vein treatment.

Absorption Graph

Identifying the correct wavelength to use on your skin is critical to your outcome. Therefore, it is essential that your provider not only be extremely knowledgeable in laser technology, but that a Physician well-trained in laser physics be present to assess the efficacy of your treatment. Most laser clinics cannot offer this to you, but Dr. Naficy's Plastic Surgery & Rejuvenation Center can.

How many treatments will I need?

Results are unique to each individual depending on several factors including the extent of vascular and pigmented lesions. Typically 2 to 4 treatments are necessary for optimal results. Treatments should be performed over one month intervals in order to accurately assess progress, and adjust settings as necessary.

Am I a good candidate for IPL?

New technology is making IPL treatments effective for most skin types. Dr. Naficy and his trained staff will personally assess your skin to determine whether you are a good candidate for IPL treatment for spider and varicose veins.

Are treatments painful?

You will feel some discomfort, which can be minimized by using a topical anesthetic (numbing cream) or by using a cooling mechanism such as the Zimmer.

What will happen after the treatment?

You may experience temporary redness, itching and/or swelling in the treated area, but this typically lasts a very short time and most people return to work or normal activity immediately after treatment.

Should I be doing anything in preparation for my treatment?

You should avoid sun exposure and tanning (including artificial tanning products and procedures) before and after your treatments. Also, you should discontinue the use of any blood thinners such as Coumadin, aspirin or other types of anti-platelet or anti-coagulant herbal remedies including Garlic, Ginger, Cayenne, Gingko, Gingko biloba, Selenium, Papaya, Bilberry and Vitamin E Tablets/Supplements.
