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.

It is estimated that more than 80 million Americans suffer from painful, bulging varicose veins or unsightly spider veins. Spider veins are the tiny veins that appear right under the outer layer of skin and are seen as small, red, blue or purple vessels, usually in a cluster pattern. Varicose veins are bulging blue veins on the leg, which appear large, twisted, and ropelike, and can cause pain, swelling or itching.
Veins takes deoxygenated blood from a body part and bring it back to the heart. Veins in the legs oppose gravity and thus to ensure flow in an upward direction, the veins have one way valves. When the valves do not work properly, the blood collects in the veins. When the blood collects in these areas spider and varicose veins will develop.
Most women begin to notice the appearance of spider veins after childbirth, as a result of direct pressure on the veins in the pelvic region and the lower extremities. Furthermore, hormones and the extra volume of blood in the body will lead to varicose veins.
Heredity, smoking, weight loss, direct trauma, excess physical activity and weight lifting may also cause venous disorders to develop. Varicose and spider veins can be physically and emotionally painful, and sufferers often feel embarrassed, frustrated, and, in some cases, depressed. However, a physical exam and ultrasound study will determine if the condition is medical or cosmetic, and also will illuminate appropriate options for treatment.
