Spider Veins Treatments with Elite IQ in St. Petersburg, FL
The Elite IQ laser can be used for the treatment of superficial and benign varicosities that are often called talangiectasis. These are most often found on the face and legs. The Elite IQ uses the theory of selective photothermolysis which uses a specific wavelength in which the target chromophore absorbed this wavelength.
This means that for vascular lesions the specific chromophore is oxyhemoglobin. Once sufficient fluence (energy) reaches the blood vessel it will cause the desired effect, which is stopping the blood flow to the vessel, causing the blood vessel to coagulate and
This treatment is non invasive and usually takes 1-3 treatments depending on the size of the varicosity. There is no down time and is relatively painless.
