An estimated 50% of all women will suffer from varicose and/or spider veins by the time they're 50. For many, these embarrassing lines make it difficult to wear shorts or enjoy summer fun, and several are affected by the veins before they reach their fifties.
More than ever, women have several options to choose for spider vein treatment. Featured on The Dr. Oz Show, the Cynergy Vascular Workstation from Cynosure, a laser for spider veins that offers a MultiPlex technology which treats several vascular and pigmented lesions. Spider veins, rosacea, and hemangiomas are only a few of the treatments available from this one machine. Dr. Bruce Katz, a New York dermatologist visits with Dr. Oz to perform this procedure live on the stage.
Dr. Katz says, "This is very common, we see this in our patients every day.... We can address it now with these new lasers." The spider vein laser uses two distinct wavelengths, and the laser light is absorbed by the blood in the vein causing it to coagulate so that the vein disappears. The treatment is not painful and very effective. The effect is immediately visible with little to no side effects.
