Age Spot and Vein Treatment Explained

Years of sun exposure damage the pigment-producing cells in our skin (melanocytes). Also, both the surface and deeper layers of skin are thinned, losing both tone and volume. As a result, our ability to fend off UV rays from the sun diminishes, creating abnormal pigmentation in the surface layer of the skin. This develops into what we call age or liver spots.

At the same time, as we get older, spider veins may develop on the legs or face. Spider veins are broken capillaries less than 2mm in diameter. They can be blue, red or purplish in color, with a web-like appearance.

These conditions can be eradicated by using laser vein treatment to target and eliminate brown pigment age spots on the skin, or in the case of spider veins, to shrink and collapse the veins to make them disappear. For other pigment irregularities, many people choose IPL in Chicago.

The Treatment

Laser technology is very versatile and the applications are almost endless. CUTERA excel V™ can help eliminate:

  • Facial and leg veins
  • Rosacea
  • Sun or age spots
  • Angiomas
  • Poikiloderma
  • Port wine stains (vascular birthmarks)

The award-winning CUTERA excel V™ combines two laser wavelengths (532nm and 1064nm) in one device, delivering a precise treatment. These treatments are short, non-invasive, and discomfort is minimal, thanks to an integrated dynamic cooling device that cools skin milliseconds before the laser pulse. You can return to your normal activities shortly treatment, although you should avoid strenuous activity for a week after spider vein treatment of the legs. People who choose vein removal may also wish to remove unwanted hair – laser hair removal near Chicago.
