Portland Vein & Skin Laser Treatments
Laser Treatment for Varicose & Spider Leg Veins in Portland
Norris Dermatology & Laser Northwest Portland uses laser treatments to remove unwanted leg spider veins, varicose veins, skin redness, and more. Spider and varicose veins are damaged veins. Most are simply cosmetic concerns while others cause discomfort and could lead to blood clots. They are more common in people who either sit or stand for long periods at a time. They’re also common with age or during pregnancy. The Vbeam® Perfecta is the gold standard laser treatment for veins in Portland. Varicose & spider leg vein laser treatments are minimally invasive. Small spider veins can disappear immediately after a single laser treatment while larger spider veins may require a few laser treatments over the course of a few months.
Laser Treatment for Face Redness and Pigmentation Issues
Laser treatment available for facial redness, facial veins, rosacea, birthmarks (port wine stains) hemangiomas and spider angiomas. It is also effective in lightening the redness of acne scars and lightening pigmentation associated with sun damage.
Facial veins and broken blood vessels are visible enlarged red blood vessels that appear on the face, commonly on the nose, chin, and cheeks as well as other parts of the body. These veins often appear as a result of rosacea, sun damage, aging and pregnancy. Vascular lesions that arise after birth are called birthmarks and usually have no effect on normal body functions. Removal of a birthmark would be for cosmetic reasons.
About Our Cosmetic Lasers
The Vbeam® Perfecta laser emits a micro-pulse of light that targets red pigment in the superficial blood vessels without harming the surrounding normal skin. This technology provides gentle heating of the blood vessels and this leads to consistent effective results. Because of this technology the results are precise and the patients have greater comfort, thus offering precision results. The integrated Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™) delivers a brief cold spray prior to the pulse of laser light, which protects the skin from injury in addition to minimizing side effects like pain, redness and bruising.
The Vbeam® Perfecta laser is a treatment for blood vessels administered in our Portland office that reduces the appearance of redness on the skin without invasive surgery. This treatment does not require anesthetics. It is a safe treatment that eliminates the use of needles and is mostly painless. Some patient reported only warming or tingling sensations. Patients may return to their normal activities with little or no downtime. The Vbeam® Perfecta is an affordable laser treatment for blood vessels as well as the removal of generalized redness on the face for treatment of rosacea and facial or leg spider veins.
