Quanta Vascular Lasers can be useful complements to more invasive surgical procedures like EVLT and sclerotherapy, especially in treating leg veins too small for needles. They are also useful as first-line treatments for facial veins that are either blue or red in color and often found around the nose, for small veins elsewhere on the body, and for other vascular issues.
The energy from a long pulse Nd:YAG 1064 nm or 532 nm wavelength found in many Quanta devices will cause the blood in the vein to coagulate, which helps destroy the vein. Once the vein collapses, the body absorbs it and blood is redirected through other veins.
Quanta IPL devices are used frequently for rosacea and treatment of diffuse redness on the face.
Of Women in the U.S.
About 50 percent of women and 40 percent of men in the United States suffer from some type of vein problem. Non-invasive laser treatment of these veins has become increasingly common in recent years.
Of Men in the U.S.
Sun damage, aging, hormone changes, obesity, lack of movement, genetics and pregnancy are some causes that lead to spider veins and other vascular conditions that can often be treated with lasers.
