vein laser therapy

Albany Cosmetic and Laser Center is the most advanced center for vein laser therapy.

The most popular treatments at Albany Laser are for broken capillaries (small vessels, generally found on the face) or spider veins (small-medium sized typically found along the legs).

Vein Laser Therapy

Albany Laser treats spider and facial veins with the gold standard Nd-YAG laser. Laser treatments typically last 15 to 25 minutes. In most cases, up to four treatments are required to eradicate spider veins in the legs or on the face. There is minimal downtime, so you may resume your typical activities immediately following treatment.

The laser coagulates the blood in the blood vessel, crushing the targeted vein. After that, the body heals the wound and absorbs the coagulated blood vessel.

During the treatment, our cutting-edge integrated cooling handpiece protects the surrounding skin. We improve the comfort and safety of the therapy by chilling the treated skin.

How does Vein Laser Therapy work?

Laser radiation is focused towards the veins, causing them to collapse and, ideally, to disappear. Bruising is common in laser-treated areas and can linger for many weeks. Lasers are particularly well-suited to treating tiny spider veins when a needle cannot be used due to their size.

Other vascular flaws treated with the Nd-Yag laser at Albany Laser include:

  • Telangiectasia: These are thin red lines visible on the skin’s surface. These are most typically found near the nose and cheeks.
  • Cherry angiomas: are a collection of dilated capillaries that resemble elevated moles but are red or ruby in colour.

The benefit of laser Vein Treatment

For all of the problems listed above is that it is non-invasive. There is no need for needles, and there is no downtime associated with the treatment. Individual results may differ. A consultation is required to assess the client’s needs.

Vein Laser Treatment in  Edmonton

Vein Laser Treatment: Vascular lesions are an ominous-sounding name for a group of minor but vexing skin conditions. Veins laser treatment, on the other hand, is an excellent solution.

Tiny blood vessels under the skin become visible as we age. They usually appear as streaks or blotches. Because of their spider web appearance, they are commonly referred to as spider veins. They’re usually blue or red.
When they appear on the face, they can make even the most youthful face appear older. They are commonly found around the nose, cheeks, mouth, and neck, as well as the legs and upper chest. Spider veins and other vein and vascular lesions are more common in people with fair skin.
Telangiectasia, erythema, and cherry angiomas are all terms for similar skin conditions and lesions. They are all simply small blood vessels visible through the skin.

Factors that Increase the Risk of  Vein Lesions such as Spider Veins

Spider veins and similar lesions are associated with a number of risk factors.

  • Heredity – If your parents or grandparents have them, you are more likely to have them as well.
  • Pregnancy – Hormonal changes, as well as increased weight, blood pressure, and fluid retention, all raise the risks.
  • Prolonged standing or sitting – If you stay in one position for an extended period of time, the veins in your legs or buttocks can rupture and cause lesions.
  • High-heeled shoes obstruct blood flow to the calves and feet, causing blood vessels to rupture.
  • Sun exposure is frequently to blame for small veins around the nose.
  • Alcohol – Excessive alcohol consumption can cause veins in the nose to rupture.

Vein Laser Treatment

Dr. Kamal Alhallak, Ph.D. in Pharmacy, and his team at the Albany Laser and Cosmetic Center in Edmonton treat these veins with lasers. The laser treatment for veins heats the veins, causing them to shrink and disappear. Hemoglobin functions as a chromophore, converting light energy into heat.
There are numerous treatments available for lesions. Many surgical treatments have been developed over the years.
We’ve developed less invasive and more difficult techniques as technology has advanced.

How does the process look likes?

Lasers, which have been shown to have a quick and permanent effect, are the current state of the art.
“It begins with a consultation where we assess the causes and best treatments for your spider veins and other vein lesions,” Dr. Kamal explained in his Edmonton office. “Once we’ve developed a treatment plan, we’ll be able to begin treatment.” In many cases, one or two sessions will be enough to nearly eliminate your spider veins and cherry angiomas. If you have a lot of spider veins, it may take several visits to get rid of them all. Nonetheless, the majority of clients will see a 90% to 100% reduction in spider veins. This makes wearing skirts and shorts much more comfortable. There is also evidence that spider veins can cause leg pain, fatigue, burning, throbbing, and heaviness.
“You’ll feel a lot better about yourself if they’re on your face.” It can remove years from your appearance in just a few minutes.”
Dr. Kamal then went on to discuss the history of laser treatments for vascular problems. 

Is it possible that treating these veins will alleviate my pain?

Spider veins and varicose veins cause pain, throbbing, tingling, tiredness, and other unpleasant symptoms in the legs.

Your body can recover and you’ll likely feel much better if you treat the veins and stop blood flow to places where it doesn’t help the muscles. You’ll experience less restlessness, cramping, and pain if your blood flow in your legs improves.

Best of all, this can be accomplished without the need for a lifetime of medications, which is the standard treatment for restless legs.

You’re feeling better about your body

These vascular lesions, whether port wine stains, spider veins, or another type of mark, can make you feel unattractive. They are commonly associated with ageing, but they can occur at any age.

You will feel better about yourself and be more willing to wear the clothes you want to wear after having these vascular lesions repaired. Imagine not having to wear long pants or long sleeves all the time in the summer. Because the bothersome veins and angiomas will be removed, you will be able to wear shorts or t-shirts whenever you want.

If you have vascular lesions or spider veins on your face, you’ll need less makeup and feel less self-conscious when someone looks at you closely.

Best of all, once the treatment is completed, no one will be able to tell that there was ever anything there in the first place.

What kind of care do I require?

You do not have to figure out what treatment you require.

A brief consultation with Dr. Kamal, Ph.D. in Pharmacy, will determine the appropriate treatment for you. Dr. Kamal will frequently use different devices on different parts of the body depending on their specific needs.

The procedures are almost entirely painless during treatment. Some patients report a brief, tolerable burning sensation that subsides quickly.

When you get home, follow Dr. Kamal’s instructions, and you’ll be back to your old self in 24 to 48 hours. Within a week, your spider veins will have faded to oblivion.
