With laser technology, we can help you completely eliminate spider veins, reduce the appearance of scars, and diminish signs of age spots along the surface of your skin. Our skin care experts can revitalize your appearance with customized treatments designed to help you attain your goals.
Laser Vein Removal
As we age, it’s very common for spider veins (web-like veins that are bluish-purple in appearance) to form in a variety of body areas. Often occurring on the legs, cheeks, and nose, spider veins can not only be painful, they can be very noticeable on the skin and make us feel self-conscious about the way we look. Fortunately, Dr. Neil J. Zemmel and our cosmetic enhancement team at Richmond Aesthetic Surgery offers advanced laser rejuvenation procedures that can eliminate the appearance of spider veins and result in smoother, healthy-looking skin.
Multiple treatment sessions may be necessary to completely eliminate spider veins in the target areas; however, once you have achieved optimal results you may not even remember exactly where the spider veins were in the first place.
Laser Scar Removal
Major advances in cosmetic enhancement have paved the way to effective procedures designed to reduce the appearance of scars on the skin. With laser scar removal, you can diminish signs of mild to moderate scarring caused by traumatic injury, surgery, acne, and other factors. This innovative technology is a non-surgical way of improving a condition that can have a significant impact on one’s self-esteem.
There are a variety of types of scars in terms of size, shape, and appearance. While laser scar removal may not be able to completely diminish signs of scarring, it can often greatly reduce its visibility on the skin. Laser scar removal uses targeted laser energy to removed damaged skin cells and promote the growth of healthier, smoother skin in the treatment area. Results will depend on the size of the scar and other factors; however, most patients experience a reduction in size and color along with a smoother appearance in the treatment area. Laser scar removal typically involves little to no discomfort and there is no need for needles or invasive surgery during this procedure.
Laser Skin Resurfacing for Age Spot Removal
Age spots are very common skin conditions that can occur virtually anywhere on the body, but are often most noticeable on the face, arms, and hands. These areas of discoloration and depigmentation can be improved with laser skin resurfacing. Targeted laser energy can penetrate the skin in the treatment areas and work to give the skin a more even color, significantly diminishing the appearance of age spots.
