- Before & After
Laser & Light therapy is a form of skin rejuvenation. It can assist in diminishing your fine lines and wrinkles. There is little to no recovery time, you can go back to work or resume other activities immediately following therapy.
Laser & light therapy utilizes a number of wavelengths or colors in each pulse of light instead of just one wavelength. Because this procedure uses filters, it is capable of giving the exact amount of energy output that is necessary for specific treatment of targeted areas. This helps the penetration cycle and avoids the use of excessive energy reaching to the target tissue preventing any damage.
Laser & light therapy is a non-ablative resurfacing treatment option that is aimed towards the lower layers of skin or dermis without affecting the top layers of skin or epidermis. The results aren't typically as dramatic as ablative resurfacing where both the dermis and epidermis are injured to produce a much more noticeable overall outcome.
About California Vein Specialists
California Vein Specialists is dedicated to providing state of the art, ethical, and cosmetically appealing non-surgical solutions for the treatment of unsightly and painful varicose and spider veins of the legs, face, hands, and body.
Vein-stripping surgery used to be the industry standard for venous disease and varicose veins. Vein stripping today is fraught with problems; it’s invasive, usually requires hospitalization and general anesthesia, a higher risk for DVT, and has long recovery period. It is also associated with about a 30% - 40% risk of revascularization. Over the last decade endovenous laser ablation of the saphenous veins has become the gold standard for treatment venous disease.Procedures are performed in my office, using either the new 1470 radial tipped laser, or Venefit which uses radiofrequency. Both of these procedures are gentle, with little or no down time, and minimal discomfort. The procedure is performed using only tumescent local anesthesia. Both procedures are performed in less than an hour, and most patients can resume normal activity immediately. This safe, effective treatment for varicose veins will improve the patient’s quality of life, help reduce the risk of ulceration, bleeding and DVT’s. I have helped a large number of patients that were previously hesitant to have their varicose veins treated because they were unaware of these newer technologies. I also have a successful track record for treating venous ulcers targeting terminal sources of reflux with ultrasound guided foam injections, in conjunction with meticulous wound care and compression. The healing time of chronic venous ulcers is greatly reduced.
Endovenous laser technology has evolved over the last several years. I have been performing these procedures since they were considered experimental in 2000 and have successfully done over 4000 ablations. I am a Diplomate of the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine, a Physician Proctor for the American College of Phlebology, and a member of the American Venous Forum. I have instructed many local and out of state physicians on the procedure technique, therefore, I have kept up with the latest innovations in laser and radiofrequency technology, offering the highest success rate both medically and cosmetically, the lowest risks of post-surgical complications, less discomfort, and an extremely short recovery time. There is no comparison to the vein-stripping surgeries of the past.
