Port Wine Stains
Vbeam™ is the gold standard and the world’s best selling pulsed-dye laser. It is a safe, easy-to-use tool for the treatment of vascular, pigmented and certain non-pigmented lesions with a low incidence of side effects. Pulsed Dye Lasers deliver an intense but gentle burst of light into selectively targeted areas of the skin. PDLs treatment is so safe that it has been successfully used since the 1980’s for the treatment of port wine stain birthmarks in infants and young children.
Leg Veins/Spider Veins/Varicose Veins
Sclerotherapy is a procedure used to treat blood vessels or blood vessel malformations (especially in the legs). A saline solution or a sclerotherapy agent is injected into the affected vessels, which makes them shrink. Sclerotherapy is often used to treat spider veins and smaller varicose veins.
Laser energy is delivered through a small hand piece as an intense beam of light which is absorbed by the skin and converted to heat. This heat is then absorbed by the dark cells of the broken veins, thereby destroying them, yet leaving surrounding tissue unaffected. The body then absorbs the destroyed cells and within weeks the veins are gone.
Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Epidermal Collagen Induction Therapy or ECIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine. The Eclipse MicroPen® is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to aid in the production of collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker epidermis and a significant improvement in the appearance of stretch marks.

Narrowband UVB phototherapy, defined as wavelengths between 311 and 313 nm, is a preferred treatment for patients who suffer from extensive moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis due to its ease, effectiveness and low incidence of side effects. Accepted guidelines recommend a total of 15-30 treatments, which will require 2-3 office visits per week for several weeks. More information can be found here.
