Why suffer needlessly with unsightly veins on the face and legs? Dr. Chin’s long pulsed nd:Yag laser will diminish the appearance of existing veins. The 1064nm laser light is delivered through the skin and into the vein. The energy is absorbed and the vein walls collapse and seal shut. Eliminating veins with a laser is quick and effective for most individuals and can require a handful of treatments. Treatments work best on smaller veins (3mm or less). The procedure is generally not considered painful, though topical numbing cream is available upon request. This procedure is priced by quotation only and a complimentary initial consultation must be completed before starting treatment.
To schedule a free consultation with Dr. Chin to discuss this treatment option for veins, please call our office at 212-396-3672 today!

A cooling, calming masque is included with all treatments.Treatments can be spot-treatments, or either full face or half face and take from 30-60 minutes. A series of 3-4 treatments spaced 3-5 weeks apart is generally required for the best results. IPL Treatments start at $75+.
Our most popular IPLphotofacial treatment, our rejuvenating filter helps to correct dark spots, decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and uneven skin tone. IPL can help with melasma in patients with a Fitzpatrick skin type I-IV.
The filter for acne helps to address current acneic lesions and reduce post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. This photofacial can be combined with other in-office treatments to provide the best all-around improvement of active acne and scarring from acne.
For patients who have skin that is prone to redness, IPL photofacials can help to address this redness (rosacea).
What is the procedure like?
On arrival, your skin will be cleansed. Men should shave prior to the procedure. Protective goggles will be placed over your eyes. A clear gel will be applied to your face and during the treatment, you may experience a sensation of warmth in the areas being treated. (Most people do not require a topical numbing cream, but it is available on request and can approximately 20-30 minutes for effect.)Once the treatment is finished, the gel will be cleaned off and a soothing, balancing gel masque will be applied for a few minutes. Afterwards, your skin will be cleansed and appropriate serums and moisturizers will be applied. There may be a mild redness after the treatment, but it is temporary. Patients should wear sunscreen SPF 30+ in the days after the procedure.
