Laser therapy to treat Spider Veins & Rosacea

How does the Laser Treatment work?

The cosmetic laser emits energy to your skin that selectively targets the problem vein while bypassing surrounding tissues. After treatment, the selected vein naturally disappears.

We utilize Cynergy treatment for leg veins and rosacea in our office utilizing a state-of-the-art muliplex laser.

What is Cynergy?

Cynergy is the first system to combine a long pulse pulse-dye-laser and a high powered Nd:YAG into one system. These wavelengths were chosen for their absorption characteristics and depth of penetration. Both wavelengths are well absorbed by blood. Both wavelengths are also absorbed by melanin. The wavelengths are synergistic in their depth of penetration criteria, the PDL has a more shallow depth of penetration while the Nd:YAG penetrates deeper.

Powered by Cynosure’s advanced MultiPlex™ technology, the Cynergy Vascular Workstation treats all types of vascular and pigmented lesions—including spider veins, and rosacea—more effectively than conventional, single-wavelength technology, including: facial and leg telangiectasias; spider veins; hemangiomas; mature and blebbed portwine stains and other vascular malformations; rosacea; scars; and warts.

Cynergy treats vascular lesions with unsurpassed efficacy and minimal side effects.


What is Multiplex?

MultiPlex is the ability to sequentially fire different laser wavelengths through the same handpiece, with precise timing, to improve the outcome of treatment compared to single-wavelength treatment.

MultiPlex Vascular refers to Cynergy’s combination of PDL followed by YAG, with short, medium, long and extended delays between wavelengths.

What makes Multiplex better?

MultiPlex vascular has been shown to provide 75% singles-treatment clearance in 75% of subjects when treating facial telangiectasia, with little of no purpura. MultiPlex improves treatment of leg veins as well. MultiPlex has also been shown to improve outcomes for those with recalcitrant and resistant vascular birthmarks, and to allow treatment of lesions previously requiring surgery.



Laser Therapy to treat IPL / Photo facial:

Say goodbye to the effects of sun damage, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and more. With the innovative Intense Pulsed Light (IPL™) photofacial procedure, gentle skin rejuvenation is now easier than ever. IPL™ photo rejuvenation is the latest in modern dermatology, allowing patients to transform red, blotchy skin into a radiant complexion. If you suffer from any of these problems, photofacial treatments may be the dermatological approach you’ve been looking for.

What Is IPL™ Photofacial?

A photofacial is a procedure in which intense pulses of light are used to penetrate deep into the skin. IPL™ photo rejuvenation then causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness and age lines. The procedure involves only minimal discomfort, while the redness and swelling that sometimes occur after treatment disappear shortly. Most benefits of a photofacial occur gradually in the weeks following treatment.

Candidates

People who have blotchy, sun-damaged, or discolored skin, or whose skin is affected by large pores, freckles, or wrinkles, may benefit from an IPLTM photofacial. The procedure is also quick and involves no downtime, making it a convenient option for people with busy schedules. Those with dark or deeply tanned skin sometimes experience complications following IPLTM photofacial treatment. Patients should discuss such issues with a trained dermatologist before undergoing treatment.


IPLTM Photofacial vs. Laser Skin Resurfacing

The IPLTM photofacial is an effective way to minimize the aesthetic impact of enlarged pores, light wrinkles, and moderate sun damage. Because it is non-invasive, it allows doctors to make cosmetic improvements quickly, conveniently, and with very little risk or discomfort. Laser skin resurfacing, on the other hand, is used to deal with more serious skin problems, such as deep wrinkles, serious sun damage, and severe acne scarring. In evaluating the benefits of an IPLTM photofacial vs. laser skin resurfacing, there are a few differences patients should be aware of.
