Science & Beauty offers YAG treatments in the greater New York City area.
As we age, many women and men are plagued by unattractive blue veins on the face and legs. Commonly referred to as “spider veins”, this condition is caused by increased pressure to the veins, causing abnormal blood flow through weakening blood vessel walls. Weight gain, sitting or standing for prolonged periods, and pregnancy are common causes of spider veins. Age and genetics also play a role.
The YAG Laser System is the premier treatment for blue veins, providing a fast and easy way to treat this unsightly condition. This procedure involves piercing the skin and penetrating the wall of the targeted blood vessel with the YAG Laser. The laser’s heat coagulates the blood within the vein, causing the vein to collapse and seal itself off. The body’s natural internal healing cells then take over, and the destroyed vessel and remaining blood dissipate over a period of a few weeks.
Anyone suffering from unsightly blue veins on their face or legs is a suitable candidate for YAG Laser treatment. Due to the nature of the treatment, clients with blood vessel disease or bleeding issues should speak to their treatment provider about potential risks.
The YAG Laser’s precision makes it the gold standard for blue vein treatment, offering:
Most clients complete their treatment in less than 30 minutes and do not require any sort of anesthesia for the procedure. Occasionally, clients notice a tingling sensation during the laser application, but the YAG Laser’s special cooling system keeps most clients comfortable throughout the procedure. After your treatment, you may feel a slight bump on your skin that should dissapear in 2-4 hours. Redness and bruising at the treatment site may occur.
