Spider veins are small, dilated blood vessels near the surface of the skin that often appear as red, blue, or purple lines. Laser therapy is one of the most effective ways to treat spider veins. The Lutronic Clarity II laser is one of several lasers that can be used for this purpose.
The Lutronic Clarity II laser is a high-powered Nd:YAG laser that delivers energy to the skin in short pulses. When the laser energy is absorbed by the blood vessels, it causes them to coagulate and eventually be absorbed by the body. This process is known as photocoagulation, and it is a safe and effective way to treat spider veins.
During the treatment, the laser is passed over the affected area, and the energy is delivered to the spider veins. The treatment is generally well-tolerated, and most patients experience only a mild sensation of heat or tingling during the procedure. Some patients may experience some redness or swelling in the treated area after the procedure, but this typically resolves within a few days.
Multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired results, and the number of treatments needed will depend on the severity of the spider veins. Your healthcare provider will be able to determine the appropriate treatment plan for you.
It is important to note that laser therapy is not suitable for everyone. Patients with certain medical conditions, such as diabetes or a history of blood clots, may not be good candidates for laser therapy. It is important to discuss your medical history and any medications you are taking with your healthcare provider before undergoing any laser treatments.

Juvederm is a brand of hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler used for facial rejuvenation, including lip enhancement.
Juvederm lip injections work by adding volume to the lips and smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth area. The hyaluronic acid in the filler attracts and binds water molecules, which helps to hydrate and plump the lips.
Yes, Juvederm is considered safe when injected by a qualified healthcare professional. However, like any cosmetic procedure, there are potential risks and side effects, including bruising, swelling, redness, and infection.
Juvederm lip injections can last anywhere from six to twelve months, depending on factors such as the patient’s metabolism and the amount of filler injected.
Some patients may experience mild discomfort during the injection process, but most describe it as tolerable. The healthcare professionals at Rejuvenate use a topical numbing cream containing Lidocaine to minimize any pain or discomfort.
The injection process typically takes around 30 minutes, depending on the amount of filler being injected and the technique used.
Common side effects include swelling, redness, bruising, and tenderness at the injection site. These side effects typically resolve within a few days. In rare cases, more serious side effects such as infection or allergic reactions can occur.
Yes, Juvederm can be reversed using an enzyme called hyaluronidase. This enzyme can dissolve the hyaluronic acid filler, although it is important to note that this process may not be 100% effective and may also cause additional swelling or bruising.
Good candidates for Juvederm lip injections include individuals who want to add volume and fullness to their lips or reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth area. It is important to discuss your goals and expectations with a qualified healthcare professional to determine if Juvederm is the right treatment for you.
