Vein and Vascular Treatments in Vancouver
The Lumenis® Leg Veins & Vascular treatments enable us to effectively treat spider veins, reticular veins (blue veins), broken capillaries and rosacea. Our unique technology enables optimal tailoring of the light source and energy to effectively target the vascular condition and cause it to fade away.
The laser or IPL create heat inside the blood vessels, which closes the vein’s walls, eventually causing the vein to disappear. The laser is very precise and only impacts the selected blood vessel and none of the surrounding skin. The IPL filter also targets the blood only and none of the surrounding skin. Lumenis technologies enable cooling of your skin between pulses, which reduces the chance of skin damage, producing great results.
Why Vein & Vascular Treatments?
- A safe, non-invasive treatment for leg veins, facial veins, broken capillaries and rosacea
- Optimally tailored to address your specific concern, from thicker varicose veins to fine capillaries
- Noticeable results with no downtime
Safety is always our primary consideration
Developed by the pioneer of aesthetic medicine and trusted by leading professionals around the world, the Lumenis® Leg Veins & Vascular Treatment is FDA cleared. The Lumenis® Vascular Treatment is validated for facial and leg veins treatments (as well as many other applications). Our Laser Specialist will take time to review your medical history before choosing this treatment to ensure you are a suitable candidate.
What should I expect?
When will I see results?
In many cases, improvement is seen immediately after treatment – full clearance of the veins might take several weeks as they slowly fade away. In the case of multiple veins, 2-3 sessions in 6-8 weeks intervals may be needed.
What can I expect after treatments?
Immediately following treatment, darkening of the vessels will be apparent, with slight redness along the vessel. You should avoid hot baths and excessive physical exercise for 1-2 weeks following your treatment. However, you should be able to continue with your normal activities immediately.

Fractional skin resurfacing is non-ablative meaning it leaves the top epidermal layer of tissue intact. No conscious sedation is required, and the procedure is non-surgical. Fractional skin resurfacing is performed using a topical anesthetic on the skin for treatment of individual regions of the face and body. The most you will feel is a warm, prickly sensation, which is very tolerable.
A series of 3-4 treatments is recommended for optimal results. Each treatment takes approximately 30 to 90 minutes depending on the size of the area. A topical anesthetic can be applied to the area before treatment to numb the skin. Treatments are scheduled approximately 4-6 weeks apart.
Your skin will look pink, with mild to moderate swelling and feel warm. After the treatment our Laser Specialist will provide you with an ice pack to cool the skin. An SPF lotion is applied to the skin for sun protection after treatment.
Mild to moderate redness and swelling will occur which usually lasts 3-7 days. Mild itchiness, warmth and a slight stinging sensation may occur immediately after treatment. The top epidermal tissue layer is left intact which dramatically reduces the recovery time.
Because Fractional non-ablative procedures bypass the melanin (pigment) layer of the skin to target the dermis we can safely and effectively treat darker and tanned skin. We perform the procedure year-round however SPF is critical during the summer months.
