Spider Veins & Vascular Lesions
Spider veins are small, blue, red or purple veins that have been damaged. They often appear on legs or the face. Although spider veins are harmless, most people chose to undergo cosmetic procedures to remove them. Many times, these procedures require surgical intervention to correct.
Dr. Yatskar offers a new non-surgical treatment option for spider veins and vascular lesions that is quick and painless. The procedure is done in our office and there is no recovery time.
Vascular lesions, spider veins or port wine stains can all be effectively treated with Vasculaze. Optimized with high peak power, Vasculaze targets hemoglobin appropriately so patients achieve a fast and safe treatment. Using a strong contact cooling mechanism, patients can expect to have a comfortable treatment with minimal discomfort.

What is Vasculaze?
The appearance of veins can be unsightly, causing both women and men to seek treatment options. Lesions can be very visible (long and bulging) or spider veins, which are smaller, finer and shorter (lines or web-like). Vasculaze can help alleviate a wide variety of facial and leg vein issues with a laser that is targeted to treat the blood vessel causing the blemish. Vasculaze has a specially designed head that is built to pinpoint the vein or vein network, making treatments precise and safe.
The technology in the Vasculaze sends pulses of light onto the vein, which makes the vein slowly fade and disappear, preventing the need for unpleasant incisions and needles.
How common are vascular lesions?
Vascular lesions are present in 10-15% of adults, with a greater number in females than males. They can be prevalent in a contained body area, spread out over multiple body areas, or show up as a singular line or cluster. The use of Vasculaze can help treat existing lesions and prevent them from getting worse.
What types of veins can be treated?
Dr. Yatskar will need to do an assessment of your vascular lesions. In general, the recommended types of vascular veins to treat are: facial and spider veins, port wine stains, leg veins, telangiectasias and angiomas. Varicose veins are typically larger and are not suitable for Vasculaze.
What areas can be treated?
More common areas of Vasculaze treatment include: face, décolleté, arms, upper thighs, back of thighs, and the lower legs.
How many sessions are required?
Typically, three sessions are performed, however, some lesions may require more. Gradual improvements in the treatment area can be seen following the first treatment – with the skin’s surface looking clearer as treatments progress.
How long is the recovery time?
Fortunately, Vasculaze treatments don’t mean a hospital stay or a long, uncomfortable recovery. Vasculaze is a quick procedure, taking only a few seconds per vein treated. Patients can come into the office and leave within minutes, depending on how extensive the vein or vein network is. Please speak to your aesthetic provider about activities that will encourage increased blood flow, like heavy exercise, as they may request you wait a few days to a week depending on the area you had treated. Areas treated should stay out of sunlight and be protected with sunblock with SPF.
