Laser Vein Treatment
Veins have one-way valves that keep blood flowing in the proper direction. If these valves stop
functioning correctly, blood can flow backwards and pool, stretching the vein and resulting in a vascular lesion.
Blood vessels fall into two groups: spider veins (telangiectasias) and varicose veins. Spider veins are visible on the surface of the skin as red, blue or purple lines. Varicose veins are larger and deeper and often look blue or bumpy under the skin.
We do effectively treat spider veins , which are most commonly found on the legs and face. By tracing the path of each spider vein, the energy from the laser will coagulate and shrink the vessel.
What part of the body can be treated?
All body parts can be treated: face, neck, chest, arms, legs, etc.
Does it hurt?
Initial cooling and a chilled tip handpiece allows safe and virtually pain free treatment.
As the light energy is absorbed by the oxyhemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin. Only mild tolerable
discomfort if present at all depends upon the concentration of cromophore in the veins, and the treatment site. Some areas of the body are just more sensitive. Laser light energy when absorbed turns into heat energy what creates a sensation. Consequently it has more sensation in denser veins. However no anesthesia is required and most patients describe the discomfort as mild and acceptable, it feels much like a rubber band snap or pin-prick with heat sensation. Many patients say they barely feel anything during the treatment due to the implemented cooling system.
How many treatments are necessary for optimal results?
After the first treatment most patients get significant results in vein clearing. Since the results
depend on personal individual factors we recommend 1-3 treatments for full clearing of the treated veins. Deeper seated veins usually require more sessions. Individual results may vary.
After one treatment, you can expect a 70%-80% improvement.
How long does the treatment take?
Each session takes around 30 minutes
After 45-60days,you can have the second treatment.
Is it permanent?
Most professionals would agree that by using current laser technology it is possible to
permanently remove unsightly veins. Histological studies have found destroyed and denatured
vein walls in post treatment. It is important to know that the treated veins are permanently
removed, however if your body produces dilated vessels reoccurrence may be present, therefore
touch up treatments may be necessary.
Yes, it only takes a couple minutes to get rid of this bothersome aesthetic problem with the laser procedure.
Try to avoid:
Recent waxing, plucking, or sugaring, recent use of depilatory creams since it makes skin much
more sensitive to laser.
Tattoos or permanent makeup in area to be treated.
Skin trauma, lesions, sores or open wounds, contagious skin diseases.
Active Herpes in the area to be treated.
Breastfeeding and/or pregnancy.
Fever, high temperature.
High blood pressure, heart conditions, epilepsy or other seizures potentially caused by flashing
light, chemotherapy, untreated diabetes.
Photo-sensitive topical creams or medication and/or herbs, (Roaccutane, Accutane, Sotret within 6 months) Stop using Retin-A®, Renova® (or other retinoid containing products), exfoliating
sponges/scrubs, glycolic, alpha and/or beta hydroxyl acid at least 24 hours before your treatment.
These products/medications increase photosensitivity and can increase the likelihood of
History of keloid or hypertrophic scarring.
History of moles or skin cancer, melanoma.
