Q. Which spider vein treatment lasts longer, sclerotherapy or YAG laser therapy?

Both treatments will last for months to years. Unfortunately, new spider veins can not be prevented with this or any other treatment.

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.
