Laser vein machine

Common Questions and Answers about Laser vein machine


Avatar n tn i have read sites where doctors regret buying a particular laser machine as the results where very poor for them. so if doctors can get taken in im sure i can. i also have scalp psoriasis which encroaches in small patches at the edges. would laser work or would i be allowed to have laser done with that condition?. i get psoriasis because i dont leave the house and my diet can be very unhealthy.
Avatar n tn PVI stands for "pulmonary vein isolation" is the type of ablation that is done specifically for A-fib...MOST (but not all) A-fib is thought to originate from around the pulmonary veins in the left atrium of the heart. The laser "burns" a circle around each vein to stop any abnormal pathway that might be causing the A-fib.
Avatar n tn He is Board Certified in Emergency Medicine form Harvard, but not in Plastic Surgery. He runs a laser vein center, and I gather just started in Liposuction when the Smart Laser was approved last year. I was told he has taken extensive training in Liposuction. His fees were the same as any top Dr. He did use some other "Tumecent Lipo machine too, but I was awake. He said he removed 5lbs. If I lost 5 lbs on my own, I would look terriffic!
92903 tn?1309908311 is that not how you understand it too. ------------------------------------------ No. IPL (not technically a laser) works deeper and more subtly. V-Beam (a laser) works more superficially and more dramatically. Less treatments needed with V-Beam but potentially more risky in the wrong hands. On the other hand, potentially better results. Last laser guy I saw recommeded 5-7 IPL treatments first and then he'd finish off any veins with V-Beam that the IPL missed. That would cost big bucks. LOL.
86075 tn?1238118691 V-Beam is also a laser, IPL is not a laser. IPL stands for intense pulsed light. IPL actually covers more of an area than V-Beam and works deeper but not as intense. IPL is gentler on the skin and therefore IPL requires more treatments. Another name for IPL is the "PhotoFacial" laser even thogugh again it's not really a laser. As explained to me, IPL is more for redness, lasters like V-Beam are more for veins.
Avatar f tn The options here are so limited. I have myopia, astigmatism, presbyopia, and I've also had a retinal vein occlusion. With the retinal issues, I'm not going with a multi-focal because of the reduced contrast sensitivity and because they can interfere with any future retinal surgery. The only adaptive IOL in the US is still Crystalens. I've talked with doctors here that say they most patients don't really get much accommodation with it.
Avatar n tn After extensive research online, I discovered two integrative medicine doctors in London, one uses laser blood irradiation therapy and the other ozone autohemotherapy. Faced with the certainty of having to treat the HCV, I decided to have 10 treatments of each to see if they had any effect. First, in November I had a red and green laser light exposed to my blood through an intravenous fibre optic cable. Fifteen minutes of each colour every other day.
Avatar n tn What I did today at the gym was to soak a towel in the ice cold water from the fountain and put it over my head and neck while I did 40 minutes on the eclipse machine. It seemed to make a significant difference in how much I heated up. The ideal exercise for rosacea would be swimming in a cool pool if one could tolerate the chlorine. I plan to try this sometime in the future but my derm said my skin is much to inflamed now to even think about it. No argument there.

In cases where one eye has a cataract that is symptomatic and causing problems with important functions such as driving, reading, recognizing faces, glare avoidance, etc.
Avatar n tn its not blood blisters,its a blood vessel under the skin like your vein pops and then there is a bruise for about 2 days then it goes away
Avatar n tn Hi, Glad to see that we are all keeping up with what is happening to each other. Makes me feel better to go through it with someone else. My pain is mild today and I only notice it when I touch my abdomen. The swelling and bruising is much better, also. My upper abdomen is so weird. Right below the bra line, I have these "fat hunks" under each breast. It's right over those ribs you can feel. That's the only way I can think to describe them.
Avatar n tn I had one laser treatment but it was a freebie and did nothing (SmartXide Dot laser) I've done all this for well over a year and NOTHING has improved. I look like a 40-year-old with an 80-year-old's arms. I live in Canada, so have more opportunity to cover my arms than someone living in Florida and cover them I do. I am embarrassed by them. I feel shocked when I look in the mirror. So ladies, I empathize fully. If I find a solution, I will post for you all.
Avatar n tn They can do miracles with brains and heart surgery and even vein surgery so I don't understand why they can't fix a lymphatic problem. I think it's because there are not enough cases to warrant a government grant but in my opinion there are more people with it than we know of. I bet a lot of people have it but due to the lack of pain often not see a doctor about it (like I did).
Avatar n tn He said that if this hasn't worked within three weeks he will do surgery with a laser. The surgery will leave a wound he said, but im betting on the fact that he is only going to get the large cluster, not the other little warts that aren't fully showing. Anyone actually had this done sucessfully please let me know. This is one of the most annoying/ embarrassing things ever!
Avatar n tn I thought my vocabulary was pretty up to date but that article you posted proved me wrong. So let me try to understand this, the gentelmen they did this report on and used the "laser" on was recorded to have recovered from his symptoms? or was he just tested on?
Avatar n tn I wonder if laser hair removal is an option. At this point, I'd go for that if it would stop these painful lumps.
Avatar f tn they did a biopsy shortly after i did this post, and nothing specific came back. i've had it treated w/ medication (pills and topical) and also laser and it'll seem to look a little better for a few days but then i'm almost to square 1. it just will not seem to heal. just today they decided to do a second biopsy, because they also find it odd and worrisome. they did diagnose me with rosacea b/c in general i am very pink with capillaries close to the skin.
Avatar m tn I also read a paper that says that CT angio is fairly sensitive and accurate and that a new machine launched by Toshiba and approved by US Govt. would give more accurate impressions. CT angio is done in people with family heart history and those having other risk factors. This helps in making an early assessment of the condition of vessels. Opinions are divided among specialists. Courage study done in the West shoes a considerable amount of debate and controversy.
Avatar n tn I was told by two different neurosurgeons that fusion was my only option. WRONG! I had Laser surgery in May of this year and I can honestly say I now have NO PAIN and NO HARDWARE!! Plus I was back at my office less than one week after the surgery. The name of the facility is Laser Spine Institute : They also work on fusions gone bad. (I have never heard of a good fusion personally) The so called "Gold Standard" they told me.
Avatar n tn Check for a valve, or enlarged vein. Also, if you are suspicious of possible infection, DRINKING WATER will help get the infection out. If you think a possible bacteria has traveled into your "ducts" then masturbate carefully. This will help to clear out and discharge any infections. Do this while drinking lots of water, atioxidents etc. MY QUESTION These things have all helped me in managing this pain. However, i notice flare ups after ejaculation.
Avatar n tn My potassium levels were so low they thought the machine was broken. My magnesium levels were also really low. A few pills of potassium and magnesium and I have been good to go. As for the nauseousness and dry heaving, my doctor told me than an irritated/infected intestine is to blame.
Avatar n tn Seriously though, at first I was worried it was deep vein thrombosis or a blood clot or something. Now that I see that Im not the only one I'm a little relieved but I'd love to know what's going on in my foot!
Avatar n tn There is a small varicose vein at the center of the cramp but it may have already been there. Since then my pain has been less intense but more frequent now. I'm going to see a cardiologist on Tuesday to see what they think.
