Cosmetic Laser Treatments
Announcing the arrival of Xeo!
The Pueblo Vein Center is pleased to announce the arrival of our newest Xeo Laser! This new laser offers a variety of treatment options.
Throughout the years, Pueblo Vein Center has been working exclusively to improve patient health and give patients the ability to have a more comfortable way of living with relief of varicose veins, spider veins, and other abnormalities.
What makes this laser the latest in modern treatment technology is how it is equipped with a gold-plated sapphire cooling tip to help cool the skin during the laser treatment. This laser is not just limited to vein treatments, but can also treat multiple types of skin problems.
TYPES OF LASER TREATMENTS
Spider Vein Treatments
The Xeo offers a newly engineered platform that delivers the same laser wave length that has been used for decades on spider veins. Treatment for spider veins are not limited to just small red veins, but also the thicker dark purple veins and “feeder” green veins. Treatments offered are very comfortable due to the cooled hand piece and improved programming.
Venous Lake of the Lip
The round purple raised veins that can occur on lips are treated extremely well with the Xeo laser system. The 1064um wavelength with the cooled handpiece makes the treatment comfortable and effective.
Minimally invasive techniques allow this laser to offer an effective, low cost method for removing diffcult warts. Treatments allow for minimal scarring and a quick recovery time.
Laser LimeLight Facial Treatments
- Treatment used for spider veins and rosacea
- Non-invasive therapy for surface imperfections and skin tone
- Offers customized settings to specific pigmented areas of the skin
A Laser LimeLight delivers a non-invasive light treatment that can be customized for different skin tones and agin skin conditions. The result is an exceptionally effective skin revitalization treatment wth minimal discomfort. A ray of energy is produced by the laser that heats the affected vein. This will cause the lining of the vein to become tacky and permanently close as they are eventually absorbed. This treatment usually takes less than an hour, but multiple treatments may be necessary depending on the severity of the case and location.
Immediately following the treatment, brown spots will start to dark and your skin may appear slightly red. The treatment area may be slightly swollen. This will occur for a few hours or even a few days. Make up can be applied to cover the redness.
While this treatment can destroy the presence of veins in an affected area, it will not stop the formation of new ones. It is highly recomended that a broad-spectrum sunscreen be used and avoiding direct sunlight exposure to ensure the best results. Rosacea cannot be permanently cured, but symptoms can be improved through these treatments.
- Non-invasive treatment for facial redness, fine wrinkles and scars
- Anesthetic is not required
- Can be used to improve healing of surgical scars less than one year old
Laser Genesis™ therapy stimulates natural processes to promote vibrant and healthy looking skin in men and women of all ages. Collagen proudction is also stimulated allowing for the skin to once again become smooth and plump. These treatments are relaxing and pain free.
One major benefit is there is virtually no recovery time. There may be slight redness following the procedure, but a patient can return to normal activities right away. The skin should be protected by using sunscreen.
Over the course of four to five treatments, Laser Genesis can help restore the skin’s youthful glow and appearance. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.
Laser Hair Removal
- Non-invasive treatment for hair removal
- Offers customized settings to target various areas of the body
- No down time required
Permanent hair removal with the Xeo system is exciting because the modality of energy can be customized for each patient. The Xeo offers both the Coolglide 1064 wavelength laser as well as the Prowave IPL that can be chosen for each clients goals and skin types. Both types of energy will selectively and safely heat the hair follicle to prevent hair re-growth in follicles that are in the active growth phase. Because some hair follicles will be dormant during a single treatment, multiple treatments will be necessary to treat all of the hair follicles. The number and duration between treatments will depend on the area treated.
There is virtually no recovery time. You may experience slight redness following your procedure, but you can immediately return to your normal activities. It is best to avoid heat including hot tubs and saunas for 1-2 days. Avoid skin irritants for a few days post treatment. Do not wax or pluck between treatments.
Multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve your goals and can vary depending on the area being treated. To maximize hair response, it is often best to space treatments further apart.
