Eliminate Unwanted Spider Veins
Who would be appropriate for treatment?
Treatments are effective for most individuals, including those with darker or tanned skin. Treatments work best on smaller veins. Consult with your technician to determine if your veins are appropriate for treatment.
Laser light is delivered through the skin and into the vein. After heating, the vein walls collapse and seal shut. The sealed vein is then broken down and absorbed by the body.
What can I expect during treatment?
You will start by meeting with your technician to discuss the treatment and your medical history. The laser handpiece will be directed over the subject vein, which will, in many cases, disappear after a single pass.
Is the treatment painful?
Discomfort varies depending on the size and location of the vein. Many describe each laser pulse as feeling like the snap of a rubber band against the skin. There can be moderate discomfort.
What can I expect following each treatment?
In some cases, the treated region will be slightly swollen and tender to the touch for a day or two. A red mark can sometimes persist for up to a few weeks. After your treatment you may be asked to avoid heavy exercise and wear sunscreen. Your technician will provide more detailed instructions following treatment
How long do the treatments take?
Leg vein sessions can take about 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area. While some patients may be satisfied after just one treatment, two or more treatments may be needed to achieve desired results.
How long do the results last?
The appearance of existing veins will be diminished or completely eliminated. However, the development of new veins cannot be prevented. If your body has an underlying vascular problem, you may need additional treatments.
Why should I have my leg veins treated with a laser?
Treatments quickly and effectively remove smaller leg veins with little pain or downtime.
