How are lasers used in dermatology?
Dr. Bryan Selkin is proud to invest in his patients and provide them with the latest solutions in dermatology. Laser technology requires specialized training to ensure safety and efficacy. Our team of professionals has the skills to provide these therapies and help patients improve their skin. Various lasers can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns, including veins, and continues to show how effective it can be against many issues. Laser devices can penetrate deep into the skin and target specific concerns.
How does a laser treat a vein?
Vein treatments are effective when administered through laser therapies. The specialized lasers used in our practice work by raising the temperature of the specific blood vessels in the treatment area. This heating results in coagulation that will shrink the blood vessels over time, causing them to disappear. Any blood that was routed through that vein will be redirected to healthy veins, and patients will see a noticeable change in their skin’s appearance without the visible veins. The laser therapy performed in our practice can be used on veins that may have not been responsive to other treatment solutions attempted in the past. Ine
Who can undergo laser vein therapy?
Laser treatment for veins can be performed on many patients, but is not the first line option for everyone. Sometimes sclerotherapy, in which we inject veins with concentrated saline, is a better option. Dr. Bryan Selkin reviews medical history to ensure the safety of treatment, and may avoid laser treatments on patients who:
- Have medications that cause thinning of the blood or photosensitivity
- Are battling a serious illness
- Have a bleeding disorder
- Have diabetes
- Have a deep tan
What type of veins can be treated with laser therapy?

Is laser therapy right for me?
As with most medical concerns, there is no “one size fits all” solution that works for every individual. At the Center for Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Surgery, we focus on providing unique, precisely-tailored treatment options for our patients. We start with an evaluation to determine the needs of the patient, and we ask about medical history to decide if laser therapies are best. Once patients have had their examination completed, they can then move forward in developing a treatment plan. This may include more than one treatment depending on the severity of their condition and any other coexisting problems that need to be addressed.
