Laser Leg Vein Removal with Elite MPX Laser and VBeam Pulse Dye Laser
The gold standard for leg veins treatment remains the traditional sclerotherapy. However, for women who are not comfortable with needle injections or risk of skin ulceration from sclerotherapy, laser leg vein removal with Elite MPX laser and/or VBeam Pulse Dye Laser is an excellent alternative. With its built-in Zimmer chiller, Elite MPX perfectly delivers Nd:Yag laser energy to minimize fine and moderately-sized red and even blue-hued leg veins and capillaries. VBeam Pulse Dye laser is effective against any superficial 'red' veins. Most patients would benefit from a series of 3 treatment sessions 4-6 weeks apart. While compression stocking is quite helpful to prevent exacerbation of leg veins and required for sclerotherapy, it is not required for laser leg vein removal using Elite MPX laser and VBeam Pulse Dye Laser.
FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER RESURFACING
With his Electrical Engineering undergraduate background at UC Berkeley and understanding of the laser optics, Dr. William Ting has mastered the subtleties of cosmetic and therapeutic lasers, particularly Fractional CO2 laser, enabling him to expertly deliver the most optimal resurfacing for patients who need to reverse years of photoaging and acne scarring. In the past 4 years, Dr. Ting has performed more close to five hundred cases of fractional CO2 laser resurfacing, many of which are of ethnic skin types.
Consultation is required with both Dr. Ting and one of the patient coordinators to review benefits and steps to be taken to minimize potential complications, pre-op, post-op care as well as the logistics of the procedure. You will have a choice of having either Dr. Ting or Annie Regan, PA-C to perform the Fractional CO2 Laser resurfacing.
FACIAL VEIN LASER with VBeam Pulse Dye Laser
Dr. William Ting is an expert laser practitioner utilizing VBeam Pulse Dye Laser, Iridex 532nm Diode, Elite MPx and Spectra Nd:Yag lasers which are the state of the art medical lasers to immediately eradicate facial veins, facial redness, portwine stain, poikiloderma, and angiomas.
Facial veins are brought upon by vasodilation of fine capillaries, most commonly seen in the setting of acne rosacea and sun damage. There are a variety of different triggers, most important of which is sun exposure. Other common exacerbating factors include heat, alcohol, caffeine, spicy foods, hot beverages, etc. Just about anything that brings about prolonged facial flushing may bring back facial veins or telangiectasias even after they have been treated laser therapy. Some families (e.g. Northern Europeans) are more genetically predisposed to have a 'Celtic Complexion' along with facial veins.
EXCIMER LASER FOR PSORIASIS AND VITILIGO
The Excimer Laser is an exciting new treatment for psoriasis and vitiligo, to be performed 2x/week. The Excimer Laser is designed to provide fast, effective relief from dry, itchy and unsightly psoriasis lesions. Using a carefully focused beam of laser light delivered through an advanced technology light guide device, the Excimer Laser system can treat psoriasis lesions quickly and effectively. The Excimer Laser concentrates the light only on the psoriasis lesion, allowing the physician to deliver high doses necessary for rapid clearing while minimizing exposure of healthy skin. In addition, Excimer laser is the defacto gold standard for vitiligo therapy. Most patients with vitiligo can appreciate signs of repigmentation typically after 8-9 treatments.
