Vein Therapy

What Is Vein Therapy?

Vein therapy, is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment for unwanted vascular lesions on the face and body. Vascular lesions can take numerous forms, such as spider veins, broken capillaries, and rosacea. The redness on your skin appears due to broken capillaries or excessive blood accumulation in superficial veins, making them stick out on the skin’s surface. Vein therapy uses multiple techniques to make the capillaries shrink and fade away from the skin’s surface. Our aesthetic team ensures you get the best vein therapy in Evergreen by selecting the ideal treatment modality and device, such as Nd YAG, VascuTouch, or Asclera, based on your unique condition.

What Are My Vein Therapy Options?

Laser Vein Treatment with Nd YAG

Medical Aesthetics performs laser vein treatment using Cutera’s cutting-edge Nd YAG laser device. This treatment involves delivering high-intensity laser energy into the damaged veins and blood vessels. The accumulated blood coagulates, and the damaged vein is eventually destroyed, allowing blood to reroute into healthier veins. Over time, the damaged veins get absorbed by the body and fade away from the skin’s surface.

Radiofrequency Vein Treatment with VascuTouch

Medical Aesthetics performs radiofrequency vein treatment using VascuTouch. This is a low-level radiofrequency device that heats the damaged blood vessels and veins until their walls collapse. The accumulated blood reroutes into healthier veins, and the damaged blood vessels eventually get absorbed by the body. VascuTouch is a suitable treatment for cherry angiomas, rosacea, red spots, broken capillaries, and spider veins.

Sclerotherapy by Asclera

Medical Aesthetics performs sclerotherapy using Asclera, an FDA-approved sclerosant solution. Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure wherein specialized medicine is injected into spider veins to harden their vein walls. The spider veins’ walls seal shut, and they turn into scar tissues eventually absorbed by the body.
