How Does the 1064 YAG Laser Work?

 

The 1064 YAG laser’s ability to selectively target hemoglobin in blood vessels makes it an effective tool for treating spider veins and other vascular concerns. Your treatment is performed by Mequon Vein’s trained physicians. Depending on the severity, multiple sessions may be required for you to achieve optimal results.
 

1064 YAG Laser Treatment for Spider Veins

 
The 1064 YAG laser is commonly used for the treatment of spider veins due to its ability to target hemoglobin, the pigment found in blood vessels. Here’s how the 1064 YAG laser works for spider vein treatment:

1. Wavelength Selection

The 1064 YAG laser emits light at a wavelength of 1064 nanometers, which is within the near-infrared range. This wavelength is well-suited for targeting hemoglobin, the molecule responsible for carrying oxygen in red blood cells.

2. Absorption by Hemoglobin

When the 1064 YAG laser is directed at spider veins, the hemoglobin in the blood absorbs the laser energy. Hemoglobin readily absorbs light and heats up at this wavelength.

3. Heat Generation:

As the hemoglobin absorbs the laser energy, it heats the blood vessel walls. The localized heating causes the blood vessels to coagulate and collapse. The surrounding tissue remains relatively unaffected due to the laser’s ability to penetrate deeper into the tissue without causing significant damage to the skin’s surface.

4. Vessel Closure

The coagulated blood vessels gradually close off and are eventually absorbed by the body’s natural processes. Over time, the treated spider veins fade from view as they are reabsorbed.

5. Cooling and Protection

To prevent overheating of the skin’s surface, which could lead to burns or discomfort, many 1064 YAG laser devices incorporate cooling mechanisms. These mechanisms help keep the outer layers of the skin safe while effectively targeting the deeper blood vessels.
