Cosmetic Laser Solutions’ clinical director and laser specialist Norma Cataldo sends spider veins scurrying with Candela’s GentleYag laser. During an initial consultation, Norma explains the procedure, answers questions, and swaps favorite knock-knock jokes. Afterward, Norma targets vein-ridden sites on the face or legs, brushing a water-cooled sapphire tip over skin for 15–20 minutes. Pulses of green light energy pass harmlessly through skin and heat hemoglobin in the blood while adjoining cells enjoy a laser dance party. The laser’s energy destroys the spider veins, which the body then naturally absorbs in 5–10 days. No anesthesia is required, but patients may feel a slight burning or stinging sensation as the laser pulses. Redness or swelling sometimes occurs, but usually disappears within a few days and can be cooled with ice packs, aloe vera gel, or Flintstones Push-Ups. Full results are generally visible in one–three treatments, which should be spaced six–eight weeks apart. The procedure must be done on natural skin color, and it may take two weeks for the skin to heal and up to six-eight weeks for vessels to improve. Patients may not be pregnant or breastfeeding, and may resume normal daily activities immediately, but are asked to avoid strenuous aerobic exercise for a week.
Though Cosmetic Laser Solutions sometimes offers a discounted rate, today’s Groupon still offers the best available discount.
Cosmetic Laser Solutions
Many an aesthetic problem has yielded to Norma Cataldo, the clinical director of Cosmetic Laser Solutions. She has been fixing dermal flaws with noninvasive beams of light for more than 10 years, remedying conditions such as wrinkles, sun spots, cellulite, and spider veins.
At the clinic, she is supported by Dr. Patrick Marasco, a board-certified plastic surgeon. With their combined skills, they are able to treat patients to more invasive procedures in their in-office surgical suite as well as lively harmonies over the intercom system.
