Laser Vein Removal in Toronto
Remove Spider Veins!
Have you seen reddish, bluish or purplish looking veins that sometimes crisscross or run over some one's legs, face or body? Both men and women may suffer from these unsightly veins, however women tend to be more prone to venous abnormalities; it has been estimated that over twenty-five per cent of adult females are currently suffering with some type of vein problem.
The two main types of vein disorders are spider veins and varicose veins. Spider veins, also known as telangiectasias, are small, thin red and purple veins that lie very close to the surface of the skin and appear on both face and legs. These veins keep their color because they are still connected to the deeper venous system, however because they are damaged, they serve no purpose and therefore can be removed without altering normal vein function.
Until recently, spider vein removal was a lengthy and painful process that involved needles or other invasive techniques. Today with advanced technologies, leg and facial spider veins and redness of the face can be dramatically reduced - if not eliminated.
Lasers can eliminate the broken vessels and spider veins with just one or two treatments that only take a few minutes.

PURE offers excellent treatment of leg and facial spider veins and redness of the face. At PURE, we provide two distinct options of spider vein removal and removal of the face redness – Laser Treatment and IPL Photorejuvenaton:
Laser Treatment for Spider Vein Removal
Lasers are an excellent method of spot treating larger facial or leg veins. With lasers, we customize your treatment to delivery precise dosages of energy through a special handpiece to each targeted vein without damaging the surrounding skin.In the process of treatment, the blood in your veins will absorb the energy form the laser, generating heat in the process. The heat will degrade the lining of the blood vessels, causing the walls to stick together and seal off. The vein will be absorbed by your body and will disappear. About two or three laser thread vein removal treatments may be needed for any area. It can be performed on any type, color, or tone of skin.
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Photorejuvenation for Spider Vein Removal
IPL Photorejuenation or PhotoFacial, is very effective when treatment involves a whole network of tiny veins such as facial veins and veins associated with flushing of the skin and rosacea. IPL is applied via a series of gentle light pulses over the treatment area. As the light penetrates the skin it is absorbed by small surface blood vessels or pigmentation. The heat generated by the absorbed energy causes thermal damage to the tiny vessels which are then reabsorbed by the body as part of its own natural healing process. There typically is no down-time associated with this treatment with which usually occur over 4 – 6 sessions. This treatment is especially effective in redness removal associated with rosacea.
After bruising subsides, the veins and blood vessels are less visible, though it may take more than one treatment to see complete clearing.
