Q. What is Fractional Resurfacing?

Fractional Resurfacing is a process by which tiny portions of the skin are treated with a laser, causing the appearance of the rest of the skin to improve. The treated areas are very small, about 30 millionths of an inch in diameter. These tiny treated areas, called microthermal zones, will cause the surrounding skin to rejuvenate.

Q. Which treatment for spider veins hurts more, sclerotherapy or YAG laser therapy?

Neither treatment is very painful. The needles we use are extremely small, and the liquid we inject is designed to minimize discomfort. The YAG laser we use chills the skin before during and after each pulse, which also minimizes discomfort. As a rule, larger veins are a bit more painful to treat than smaller veins. Most patients who've had both forms of treatment describe the sclerotherapy as less painful.
