Dr. Minuk’s has successfully treated facial veins since 1993 and was the first Winnipeg dermatologist to provide such treatment.

- Diode Laser
- Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (commonly called a Photo-facial or IPL)
- Yag 1064 (long pulse)
*results may vary from person to person
Dr. Minuk will assess your problem and provide a treatment plan with the laser or technology that will deliver results. During treatment, laser light passes safely through the top layer of skin to remove unwanted blood vessels without damaging the surrounding skin (termed “selective photothermolysis”). Facial veins, broken blood vessels or capillaries, cherry or red spots, and port wine birthmarks can be treated right in the office within seconds or minutes.
Broken blood vessels usually require one treatment with a touch-up treatment scheduled several weeks later, if necessary.
Portwine birthmarks: Commonly pink or varying shades of red can be dramatically reduced in a number of sessions with sessions spaced at 3-4 month intervals.
Children & Port Wine Birthmarks: Call our Clinic to learn more about having your child’s birth mark treated. As well, call for further information regarding Manitoba Health’s coverage.
