An estimated 50% of all women will suffer from varicose and/or spider veins by the time they're 50. For many, these embarrassing lines make it difficult to wear shorts or enjoy summer fun, and several are affected by the veins before they reach their fifties. Both facial and leg veins can create the impression of being much older than you feel. That's why Dr. Rosio calls his laser treatment an "Age Eraser".
More than ever, women have several options to choose for spider vein treatment. Featured on The Dr. Oz Show, the Cynergy & Apogee Vascular Workstation from Cynosure, are lasers for spider veins that Dr. Rosio uses as he treats many types of vascular and pigmented lesions. Spider veins, rosacea, Portwine Stain birthmarks and hemangiomas are only a few of the treatments available from Dr. Tim Rosio, director of AnewSKIN Dermatology. The El Dorado Hills and Sacramento area dermatologist is a colleague of New York dermatologist Dr. Katz and uses the same laser as shown on Dr. Oz to perform this procedure that was shown live on the stage.
Dr. Rosio and Dr. Katz agree, "This is very common, we see this in our patients every day.... We can address it now with these new lasers." The spider vein laser uses two distinct wavelengths, and the laser light is absorbed by the blood in the vein causing it to coagulate so that the vein disappears. The treatment is not painful and very effective. The effect is immediately visible with little to no side effects.
