SPIDER VEIN TREATMENTLast Updated: 11/12/2010
November 11, 2010- Dr. Bush responds to Dr. Mueller
I have a 1064 and I never use it. The VeinGogh and the 940 laser by Dornier are much more effective in treating spider veins than the 1064 wavelength laser. The 1064 has a low HgB affinity and in order to effectively deliver sufficient energy there must be a long pulse duration which either hurts or a cooling mechanism must be added which decreases the efficiency of the laser.
Course 3 deals with the application of light based therapy, ohmic thermolysis, and targeted phlebectomies. This course will be available in a few weeks and I think you will find it beneficial as an overall view of spider vein treatment.
November 11, 2010- Dr. Mueller has questions about spider vein treatment & 1064 nm laser
just bought a laserscope lyra 1064 nm transdermal laser
do you have a course that gives intensive intstruction in 1064 nm laser, not just an overview of laser or just laser briefly in the context of all spider vein treatments?
many thanks again, rich mueller
