Facial Veins/Rosacea/Port Wine Stains

Facial Veins usually appear on the nose, cheeks, chin, forehead, neck, and upper chest. These veins, also known as telangiectasia or broken capillaries, can appear as tiny clusters or just single thread veins. At VeinTherapies, we use several modalities to successfully treat facial veins. Facial veins and broken capillaries are completely eliminated in 1-2 treatments, leaving your skin with no evidence that you ever had any visible veins or capillaries.

Facial Veins are treated using Laser, intense pulsed light or VeinWave. With Laser and IPL, the heat from the laser beam or intense pulsed light device selectively destroys the abnormal veins. VeinWave is a revolutionary new FDA approved procedure developed by vascular surgeons as a way to eliminate fine, difficult to treat spider veins. The treatment relies on thermocoagulation to heat and close vessels instantly.

All three options effectively treat these tiny vessels or broken capillaries leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed.

The VeinTherapies Team will devise a treatment plan that will give you the greatest success utilizing one or all three methods of treatment. The results are amazing and usually immediate.

Nail Fungus

Laser treatment for onychomycosis (nail fungus) is a unique procedure using a laser called a 1064 Nd:YAG. It works by gently heating the nail bed and the deeper layers of your nail. The laser light passes through the nail surface and is absorbed by pigment in the fungi. By gradually heating the deeper layer, the heat kills the fungal organism and over time your nails will grow out clear, smooth and fungus free, even after years of fungal infection. Fungal infection can present many nail issues. Nails can appear discoloured, yellow streaks under the nail, distorted or thickened nails, brittle or crumbly, white spots and streaks on the surface, separated nails from the bed, or build-up of debris under the nail.

The results from this procedure have been phenomenal, after just one treatment! Patients no longer have to subject themselves to toxic drugs or ineffective topical creams.

Permanent Makeup

Permanent makeup is a technique which employs permanent pigmentation of the skin as a means of producing designs that resemble makeup, such as eyebrows, eyeliner and lip color. It is also used to produce artificial eyebrows in people who have lost them as a consequence of aging, disease, such as alopecia totalis, or chemotherapy, It is also used to enhance the breast's areola after breast surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does permanent make-up look like?
Permanent make-up looks very similar to regular make-up, but a little more natural since a layer of skin softens the implanted color. Lip color would simulate a lip stain and eye/brow makeup would look very similar to make-up pencils. If conventional makeup looks natural, then permanent makeup can look natural too. How natural your permanent make-up looks depends on your own style, hair (amount and color) and any modifications desired to the shape or design of your eyes, lips or brows.

Is permanent makeup a tattoo?
Permanent makeup is very similar to a tattoo, in the fact that color is implanted in the skin with an automatic machine; however, all equipment and pigments used are specifically made exclusively for cosmetic procedures. Unlike a tattoo machine, permanent makeup equipment is designed to work on delicate skin and pigments are intended to look more natural than the standard primary colors found in a tattoo establishment.

Is the procedure painful?
Topical and local anesthetics are used to minimize discomfort.

What is the recovery?
There will be slight swelling, redness and occasionally bruising, depending on the individual. Swelling typically only last 1-2 days for the eyebrows, 2-3 days for the eyes and 3-4 days for the lips. The color, initially more intense and bold during the healing process, fades to the desired color in less than a week. The color lasts 3 – 5 years, depending on the desired color and amount applied.
