WHY IT WORKS


Lasers deliver concentrated light in a specific wavelength of the spectrum. Each wavelength is thought to be absorbed by a different target, such as pigment, blood, or water. The Cynosure/Palomar® Nd:YAG 1064TM Laser Hand piece delivers light pulses in the 1064 nm wavelength. Our laser sends energy into the blood and vessel walls, where it is thought to be absorbed by hemoglobin which may improve the appearance of leg veins. *Individual results may vary.

"This is a note to let you know how pleased I am with my Micro-fractional laser treatment given by Dr. Biro. I found it to be nearly painless during the treatment of about one hour or so and of course no pain at all with the healing process."

I've been seeing Dr. Andy for botox and facial treatments since 2011. As a person, he is very considerate and caring; capable of interesting, lively banter - a nice to know individual. As a professional, he is quite disciplined and knowledgeable. His clinical approach is cautious and discerning - using the most appropriate treatment of the many options and products offered by his practise. He does good work and I trust him. I do not look anything like a 60+ woman - I look 40-ish.... which is quite empowering.

Doc Andy is the best. Doesn't make you feel insignificant for wanting to look your best. The best part is he won't allow you to pump yourself up with more than you need like some will because its all about the money. You will have a great experience. The staff are friendly and super helpful. Book early. He's so popular here in Qualicum Beach it takes time to get into see him.

FAQ’S ABOUT LEG VEIN CLEARANCE

Why do varicose veins and spider veins usually appear in the legs?

Veins in the legs have the toughest time carrying blood from the bottom of the body up to the heart against the force of gravity. Because of this, leg veins have to endure the most pressure. This pressure can be stronger than the veins’ one-way valves can handle, causing blood to flow backwards (creating visible veins).

Are results ?

Current, minimally invasive treatments have very high success rates compared to traditional surgical treatments. Over a period of years; however, new abnormal veins tend to show up, and patients should be aware that these veins are new and not recurrent. Though visible veins can be treated, the disorder cannot be ly cured. The major reason for this is that there is no cure for weak vein valves.

How many treatments are required?

Depending on the severity and size of the damaged vein, one to three sessions are generally required. 

Is there any down time required?

Compression stockings and/or tensor bandages are necessary to prevent recurrence of veins and are generally recommended for one to two weeks after treatment to maximize effectiveness.  

How long do treatments take?

A potent numbing cream is applied in the area for about 45 minutes before the laser vein removal procedure. Treatment can commence immediately after the cream is removed and usually takes 15-30 minutes to complete.
