Q. Which method is better for treating spider veins, sclerotherapy or YAG laser therapy?

Both methods are effective. In our experience, spider veins that are one to four millimeters in diameter are best treated with sclerotherapy, and spider veins that are smaller than one millimeter are best treated with the YAG Laser. To get the best possible results, a combination of both treatments works best.

Q. What are the side effects of IPL acne treatment?

Beards can become patchy with bald spots. This effect may be temporary or permanent. It is also possible to get light spots, dark spots or blisters with the treatment. It is more likely that side effects will occur when treating areas other than the face. Facial skin is more resistant to side effects. To minimize the chance of side effects, we strongly recommend patch testing.

Q. How many Fractional IR Skin Tightening treatments will I need before I see an improvement?

Patients say they feel their skin is tighter after just one or two treatments. The skin starts to look tighter after two or three treatments. The tightening will continue to improve for four to six months after the last treatment, and then stabilize. A total of three to five treatments are typical.
