What is Vein Detection?

Perfect Skin Center has two locations in Arizona: Scottsdale and Tempe. It describes itself as “an aesthetic laser & body contouring center.” Dr. Richard Burgmeier, a plastic surgeon, founded Perfect Skin Center in 2000. Dr. Burgmeier is a graduate of the University of Iowa School of Medicine, and he has worked for Cigna Urgent Care since 1991. He is a member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, and the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery. At Perfect Skin Center, we specialize in a variety of things ranging from vein detection to rosacea treatment and more.

What Does Vein Detection Involve?

Vein detection is a procedure that is often performed before administering injections to ensure that substances like BOTOX® or Juvederm® do not end up in a vein. It will also prevent the injector from making multiple injections while trying to avoid veins. While many clients have visible and easily detectable veins near the surface of the skin, some do not. Our staff at Perfect Skin Center will perform vein detection on such individuals to ensure their safety.

During vein detection, we will place a handheld device just a little above the treatment site. The device emits infrared light that illuminates the client’s veins. The hemoglobin or red pigment in the patient’s blood can absorb infrared light and, thus, make the veins highly visible through the skin.

Since the technology does not involve lasers, there is no risk of it overheating or burning the client. The light, however, is very bright, and the client should avoid looking directly into it.

What Kinds of Injectables Does Perfect Skin Center Offer?

Perfect Skin Center offers a large selection of injectables, including:

• Sculptra®
• Restylane®
• Radiesse®
• Kybella®
• Juvederm®
• Bellafill®

Sculptra®, Restylane®, Radiesse®, Juvederm®, and Bellafill® are all dermal fillers that can add volume to different parts of the face and fill in wrinkles. Radiesse® can also add volume to the hands and be used for a non-surgical nose job. BOTOX® is the well-known muscle relaxer that temporarily relaxes facial muscles that cause wrinkles.

You can learn more about vein detection during a consultation at Perfect Skin Center in Tempe or Scottsdale. Contact us today to schedule an appointment!
