Since their invention in 1960, lasers have featured prominently in the world of science fiction. Just think how many movies or TV shows you’ve seen that has someone blasting the bad guys with a “ray gun” or healing someone’s wound with a hand-held laser zapper. Given this, you might be surprised to learn that the laser has been an integral part of real medical science since its invention, too. Because of the laser’s ability to focus light into a very precise beam, it is used on a daily basis by medical professionals to treat a large number of conditions.
At Chuback Medical Group, we use medical-grade lasers to treat many different conditions, ranging from aesthetics (“plastic surgery”) to vein disease (most often for the treatment of venous insufficiency). In this article, we’ll explain some of the ways we use lasers to help our patients.
Ways that New Jersey vascular doctors use lasers to treat vein disease
Most of the procedures that varicose vein removal experts in NJ use these days are endovenous, meaning that instead of making large incisions in the skin, the doctors are able to insert a tiny needle into a vein to eliminate problems from the inside of the veins. Laser sclerotherapy, for example, is a procedure we often use to eliminate spider veins. Endovenous Laser Ablation Therapy (EVLT) is a form of minimally-invasive treatment we use to close varicose veins by inserting a tiny laser into the veins and then releasing a precisely controlled beam to seal the vein and allow blood flow to be redirected to healthier veins.
We also use lasers for aesthetics purposes
In addition to having one of the best New Jersey vein experts, Chuback Medical Group also has one of the best plastic surgeons in Bergen County, Dr. Jaime Bastidas. Dr. Bastidas uses lasers for a number of aesthetic treatments, including laser hair removal. Dr. Bastidas also uses PicoSure (a more advanced laser than earlier, now outdated devices) to provide laser tattoo removal and advanced laser skin rejuvenation. He also specializes in SmartLipo, which uses laser lipolysis to remove accumulations of body fat, and Precision TX™, which uses lasers to reverse the signs of aging to the lower face and neck.
