TREATMENT OF PERIORBITAL VEINS

Saturday, March 31st, 2018

As the aging process progresses, facial veins may appear more visible. The area around the eye, known as the periorbital region, is a frequent site for visible veins. These can become quite prominent and detract from the aesthetics of the eye. They are difficult to conceal and are a frequent complaint of patients concerned about their appearance. Fortunately, a safe and effective treatment option exists with the Ellipse Nordlys Nd:YAG laser. This device uses a specific wavelength of light that is absorbed by the red blood cells found within veins. The resulting heat that occurs results in the eventual elimination of blood flow through the veins due to the collapse of the vessel walls. The veins will disappear when blood doesn’t flow through them. The deeper veins remain untouched so there is no functional effect when treating the superficial veins. Minimal discomfort is associated with this rapidly performed treatment. One or more laser sessions may be required depending on the extent of the problem.

FACIAL AGE SPOTS

Saturday, September 30th, 2017

The Nordlys system of broad band light technology, known as Selective Waveband Technology (SWT), has been very effective in the treatment of age spots on the face. Precise energy pulses delivered to the face are absorbed by the pigmented spots causing a reaction that results in their gradual exfoliation. A significant improvement can be seen with a single treatment but followup treatments at 1 month intervals may be necessary to maximize the result. The treatment takes about 20 minutes and is very well tolerated by patients.

NORDLYS Nd:YAG LASER VEIN TREATMENT

Sunday, August 20th, 2017

The Ellipse Nordlys is a state of the art device with multiple light and laser based treatment options for effectively managing various conditions. Superficial veins around the eye and temporal region are a frequent complaint that can be very visible and difficult to conceal due to the thin skin in this region. Treatment with the Nordlys Nd:YAG laser can reduce or eliminate the veins by using a specific wavelength of light to deliver energy that is absorbed by the red blood cells contained within these vessels. The energy is converted to heat which is transmitted to the inside surface of the vein. This results in eventual collapse and sealing of the veins so no further blood flow occurs. The lack of blood flow is what makes the veins gradually disappear. There are plenty of deeper veins in this area so eliminating the superficial ones that are visible is not a problem. There is minimal discomfort and the treatment only takes a few minutes. Frequently one treatment is sufficient but additional treatments may be indicated depending on the response of the veins.

Nd:YAG LASER TREATMENT OF VASCULAR SKIN CONDITIONS

Sunday, December 25th, 2016

The Nd:YAG laser applicator on the multi-platform Nordlys system is very effective in treating vascular skin conditions that appear as red spots on the face. These clusters of small dilated blood vessels are called spider angiomas and respond to the wavelength of light energy that is delivered by the Nd:YAG laser. The energy is selectively absorbed by the red blood cells of the angioma and causes the inside wall of the vessels that are targeted to heat up and collapse. This prevents any further blood flow and the redness disappears. The treatment is very rapid with minimal discomfort and may require 1-3 sessions about 6 weeks apart with no downtime.

TREATING AGE SPOTS ON THE HANDS

Saturday, April 30th, 2016

Age spots on the hands are characterized by various shades of scattered brown pigmentation that often parallels the brown spots seen in the aging face. Yet, treatment of the hands is often overlooked. The advent of light based devices has afforded patients the opportunity to safely and effectively diminish or eliminate these unwanted spots.

The new Nordlys system uses Selective Waveband Technology (SWT) to exclude unnecessary wavelengths of light so that only those beneficial to treatment of the brown pigmentation are delivered in precise energy pulses. These pulses result in heat that “energizes” the age spots, causing them to separate, so that they are effectively treated in 1-3 monthly sessions. The precision of the Nordlys technology has made the treatments both comfortable and fast requiring no more than 10-15 minutes. Dr. Forley has found that the hands respond remarkably well to the treatment protocol with only a single treatment needed in many cases.
