Vein Removal

Technique: Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Machine

How it works: Thread veins, also known as spider veins, usually appear across the nose & cheek area, and are often difficult to cover up on a daily basis. Concentrated pulsating beams of light cause the walls of the vein to collapse and form scar tissue. Eventually, these veins will be reabsorbed by the body and fade away after several weeks. In general, IPL affects the lower layers of the skin, rather than the top. This allows it to reach deeper structures, like the spider veins, without burning the surface of the skin. 

Preparation: Not Required

Invasiveness: Medium - High

Suggested # of Sessions: 2-6 depending on the size of the treatment area

Length of Each Session: 30-90 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area

Recovery: May take up to 5 days.  

Tattoo Removal

Technique: Laser Machine

How it works: The heat from the laser machine breaks the tattoo ink particles trapped in the dermis of your skin, which then allows your body's immune system to remove the ink over the following weeks, flushing it away from the tattooed area. 

Preparation: Not required

Invasiveness: High

Suggested # of Sessions: 4+ depending on the size of the tattoo

Length of Each Session: 30-90 minutes depending on the size of the tattoo

Recovery: Can take up to 7 days. Antibiotics and Polysporin must be used to ease and speed the recovery process.
