Those little purple lines close to the skin’s surface — often called spider veins, due to their appearance — are broken capillaries.
A special laser at Pickett Family Medical Center — called a Spectrum Long Pulsed Yag, or intense pulsed light (IPL) — targets spider veins with a pulse that feels like a rubber band snap, and permanently removes them.
It usually takes only one session to remove small spider veins. However, a larger area may take more than one session.
Similarly, these lasers can be used to remove discolorations of the skin, including brown spots — which are often referred to as age spots or sun spots.
Also called facial rejuvenation, this procedure uses a laser beam to remove damaged skin, scars, fine lines, and wrinkles around the eye, forehead, or mouth.
Your provider at Pickett Family Medical Center uses the laser to send short, concentrated beams of light on your skin, removing the damaged skin one layer at a time.
The laser beam removes the outer layer of skin — called the epidermis — while simultaneously heating the underlying layer of skin, called the dermis. This stimulates the growth of new collagen fibers. As the treated area heals, the new skin that forms is smoother and firmer.
The process is quick and painless, and the result is a youthful glow and smooth appearance.
Today, your doctor at Pickett Family Medical Center can remove an unwanted tattoo from the safety of a medical office by using a Spectrum laser with Q-Switched technology.
The laser targets specific ink colors, which are broken down into tiny particles that are naturally flushed away through your body’s immune system. The laser uses a fast pulse of light, targeting an exact spot, leaving all surrounding skin unharmed.
This process lightens the ink on your tattoo, which begins to fade. Over time — and with several follow-up treatments — the tattoo is completely removed.
Choosing Pickett Family Medical for skin resurfacing, tattoo removal, and removal of sunspots and spider veins is the safest choice in The Colony, Texas. Under the supervision of an experienced, qualified physician, you can rest assured of the safest level of care and follow up.
