Laser Vein Treatments

We are pleased to announce that our office recently added a new skin treatment tool that allows us to provide a simple cosmetic procedure for the removal of spider veins, age related spots, freckles and other pigmented and vascular blemishes. This tool is the latest technology for the gentle, safe treatment of vascular and pigmented lesions, the DioLite 532 laser.

What is the IroDex DioLite used to treat?

The DioLite 532 specifically targets vascular and pigmented blemishes or signs of aging. A vascular lesion is formed by large or numerous blood vessels located directly under the skin so they are visible or create a look of redness to the skin. Spider veins are the most common vascular lesions and are usually found on the face or legs. Pigmented lesions are generally caused by melanin. Melanin is the dark pigment in skin. When there is an abundance of melanin in the skin, it forms freckles, brown age spots and moles.

Vascular lesions treated by the IroDex DioLite include:

  • Telangiectasia - facial spider veins caused by a dilation of the capillary vessels or arterioles
  • Cherry Angiomas -slightly raised, red lesions
  • Spider Angiomas -slightly raised, red spider-like lesions
  • Rosacea - red facial lesions around the nose and cheeks causing a sunburn look

Pigmented lesions treated by the IroDex DioLite include:

  • Lentigines - a flat, brown spot skin with frequent sun exposure
  • Keratoses - slightly elevated pigmented spots often found on the back and hands
  • Freckles - a brownish spot on the skin common on people with fair skin
  • Dermatosis Papulosis Nigra - small, black marks seen primarily on people of Asion or African descent

Does treatment hurt?

In most cases, there is no pain and anesthesia is not needed. Some patients report feeling a slight stinging sensation, followed by some redness which goes away in 2-4 hours.

How long does treatment take?

In most cases, there is no pain and anesthesia is not needed. Some patients report feeling a slight stinging sensation, followed by some redness which goes away in 2-4 hours.

Where does treatment take place?

Treatment takes place in the comfort and convenience of our offices.

What does IroDex DioLite treatment cost?

It depends on the density of lesions being treated. Treatment usually costs between $200-$350.

Is there much post-treatment care?

Post-treatment care is minimal and very simple. The doctor may ask the patient to use an anti-bacterial ointment on the treated area for a short period of time and will suggest the patient stay out of the sun during the healing process.

When will the patient see results?

Results are almost immediate and there is no post-treatment bruising. Final results may take between 2-3 weeks.

Who should consider treatment?

Anyone bothered by what they consider unattractive skin lesions is a candidate for treatment. After a brief examination, a doctor will be able to determine if laser treatment is appropriate for the candidate.
