Vascular Therapy Q&A

What is vascular therapy?

Vascular therapy is one of the aesthetic treatments available at Fit Life MD. Dr. Cardona is a board-certified internal medicine physician who provides many treatments and services that help you look and feel your best.

To improve the look of your skin and reduce the visible signs of aging, he offers vascular therapy with the innovative aesthetic tool excel® HR. 

This laser tool for vascular therapy combines two laser technologies that target the primary signs of aging, including visible veins and photodamage. 

The laser energy targets the pigments in the visible veins and hyperpigmented areas of your skin and destroys the pigmented cells. Your body naturally removes them from the area, leaving behind clearer, smoother skin. 

What does vascular therapy treat?

Dr. Cardona uses advanced laser technology for vascular therapy that eliminates hyperpigmentation on your face and body. He performs vascular therapy to treat:

  • Sun spots
  • Melasma
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Redness
  • Visible veins on the face and body

The advanced laser tool is safe and effective, specifically targeting these types of aging skin concerns. 

What can I expect during vascular therapy?

Vascular laser therapy is an in-office treatment that takes 30 minutes or less. The length of your therapy depends on the area of your body undergoing treatment. 

Dr. Cardona customizes your treatment plan at your initial consultation. Most vascular therapy sessions take only 5-10 minutes, making it the perfect lunchtime beauty treatment. 

Before therapy, he cleans your skin with an antibacterial agent and may apply a numbing lotion to ease discomfort during your laser treatment. Once your skin is ready, Dr. Cardona applies the laser tool to the treatment area.

You may feel a snapping sensation as the laser energy targets the pigmented cells under your skin. 

What can I expect after vascular therapy?

You may have some redness at the site of your vascular therapy, but these side effects resolve within a few days. There’s no need for downtime following vascular therapy, and you can resume your usual activities right away. 

Your treated skin darkens and sloughs off within 3-6 days. 

Most patients require 2-3 vascular therapy treatment sessions to get the best results. The number of treatments you need depends on the area undergoing treatment. 

Dr. Cardona can give you clear, beautiful, spot-less skin. Call Fit Life MD, or book your vascular therapy consultation online today.
