Laser Vein Treatments Dr. Park's Approach: "We are currently using 3 different laser and light modalities to help reduce redness and small blood vessels which become visible. These include Intensed Pulsed Light (IPL), the Diolite laser and the long pulse Nd:Yag 1064 nm laser. These treatments work to try to eliminate the vessels which have formed superficially in the skin to lessen the appearance of little red or purple lines/patterns or general redness. The downtime is minimal and the laser treated areas show improvement immediately. IPL takes multiple treatments, but can deal with broader areas of redness."

Spider Vein Removal Dr. Park's Approach: "We treat 'spider' type blood vessels with a couple of different modalities. The treatments can really 'clean up' areas where the vessels are visible. Since they are often red or purple in contrast to lighter skin, they are often prominent and bother many patients. In the face, we usually use one of the vascular lasers, and on the legs, lasers or injections can be used. These treatments are very effective and during or shortly after the procedure, vessels actually disappear. Common areas we treat include small vessels on the nose, cheeks and other
Arm Lift Dr. Park's Approach: "Brachioplasty has become more common with the increased popularity of weight loss surgery. This is an operation which truly trades scarring for shape.
