Acne, Scars, and Spider Veins? How Laser Vein Treatment Improves Your Appearance
Our skin is sensitive to the environment and easily changes over the years. Whether your skin’s appearance changes from the sun or age, you might be wondering how you can restore it to a younger and healthier appearance. Bellissimo Plastic Surgery & Medi Spa in Pittsburgh uses advanced laser treatments to diminish the results of aging skin, sun spots, spider veins, and more.
What is the Cause of Spider Veins?
Spider veins are similar to varicose veins, but a lot smaller. They are close to the surface of the skin and are blue or red in appearance. These veins often look like tree branches and they’re found on the thighs, legs, and even your face.
While varicose veins are often caused by weak valves in the veins, spider veins are the result of hormonal changes, blocked blood in the vein, exposure to the sun, and injuries. With the help of laser vein treatment, you can diminish the appearance of spider veins for younger looking skin.
What Causes Acne?
Acne is a frustrating skin condition that can affect adults well into their 30s and beyond. One of the most common causes of acne is hormonal, where fluctuations cause breakouts during different times of the month. Sometimes birth control pills or an antibiotic can help clear the skin, but this may only last for a short period of time. Some antibiotics, such as Doxycycline, can help clear hormonal acne but this isn’t a long-term solution for clear skin.
Some medications can actually cause acne. Acne is also formed by bacteria or an overabundance of oil in the skin.
With the many causes of acne, it can be a long road to find a solution for clear skin. However, laser skin treatments might be a solution.
What Causes Scarring?
Scarring results when the lower layer of skin is damaged. New collagen fibers are formed to help repair the damage, which is how the scar manifests on the outer layer of the skin. The texture of a scar is different than the surrounding skin, and a scar only forms once the wound is entirely healed.
How Does Laser Vein Treatment Help Improve Your Skin?
Whether you’re living with unsightly scars, acne, or spider veins, the Aerolase LightPod Neo laser is a safe yet powerful solution. Although it’s ideal as a laser vein treatment, it is also effective for treating a number of skin conditions, including:
- comprehensive skin rejuvenation
- hair removal
- ingrown hairs
- pigmented lesions
- Rosacea & redness
- Spider veins
- Vascular Lesions
The way that Aerolase LightPod Neo laser works is by absorbing chromophores in the skin. The chromophores are attracted to water, melanin, and hemoglobin—meaning that the laser vein treatment is attracted to reds, browns, and water.
From here, the laser penetrates into the deep layer of the skin with little-to-no effect on the outer layer.
The reason why Aerolase LightPod Neo works so well is due to pulse duration. This laser has a shorter pulse duration, so energy is quickly transferred to the targeted tissue. The tissue is able to withstand high temperatures, which is key to generating faster and better results than lasers with a lower pulse duration.
The Benefits of Aerolase LightPod Neo Treatment
If you have any of the aforementioned skin conditions, Aerolase LightPod Neo can provide laser vein treatment for spider veins and more.
