Endovenous Laser Ablation
Laser ablation works by targeting Nd:YAG laser energy to the interior of a vein, causing the vein wall to shrink and seal shut, resulting in no visible veins.
Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy
Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy, or USGS, is another treatment available to the vein specialist to treat causes of varicose vein disease.
In cosmetic sclerotherapy, a ;sclerosant; solution such as polidocanol or sodium tetradecyl sulfate, “STS” is used to shrink the vein to the desired appearance.

Laser treatments are now a routine procedure for the removal of many types of vascular lesions, including hemangiomas, vascular malformations such as port-wine stains, telangiectasias, venous lakes and angiomas.
The Perfect Vascular Solution
Long-pulse Nd:YAG lasers offer the perfect solution for treating vascular lesions. Fotona’s long-pulse Nd:YAG lasers penetrate to a depth of 5-6 mm into the skin, allowing for highly effective treatments. Independent research shows that over 75% of patients with deep hemangiomas that are treated with Nd:YAG lasers see a dramatic regression in the lesion.
