Veins and brown spots are both conditions that change the appearance of the skin and leave it in need of rejuvenation. Spider veins and varicose veins are caused by enlarged blood vessels and have several causes, including:
- History of blood clots
- Birth control pills
Brown spots are the result of sun damage or genes, and are are essentially formations of excess amounts of melanin the pigmentation in our skin. Both veins and brown spots can be treated via laser machines.
Cutera Excel is an FDA-approved laser that works to greatly reduce and eliminate veins. Its light targets the veins so that blood coagulates and the vein is destroyed. It is an extremely safe and effective procedure with only slight pain and minimal side effects. The number of treatments required depends on the severity of the condition, though usually one or two treatments is enough. In each individual case, results may vary depending on a variety of factors such as severity of the condition, age, number of treatments, etc.
Laser Genesis can also be used to treat redness/veins that may appear in the face. It uses the same technology as Cutera Excel.
With brown spots, Laser Limelight selectively treats the spots. It works by applying heat to the spots, effectively allowing them to disappear. Usually, one to three treatments are enough, though the number needed depends on your specific situation. Results begin to show within one to three weeks after treatment.
With these laser treatments, both veins and brown spots can be treated, and you no longer have to worry about their appearance. If youre interested in learning more about how these treatments can help your skin condition, talk to one of our consultants today!
