This laser technology treats both spider and larger blue reticular veins on the face and/or legs with no injections or incisions - which means immediate results without lifestyle interruptions.
How does Laser Vein Removal work?
The laser produces a highly concentrated beam of light that is attracted by the hemoglobin in the blood vessel. The vessel absorbs the light and is destroyed, but does not rupture or lead to extensive bruising as with older lasers. Because of our lasers deeper wavelength, the light is not absorbed by the skin, but goes directly to the vessel, allowing safe treatment of all skin types without burns or blisters.
How many treatments are required?
The number of treatments varies according to the type and size of the vein. There is typically dramatic improvement with the first treatment. Additional treatments are usually necessary to achieve the complete desired result.
Is laser vein removal painful?
Most patients experience minimal discomfort or no pain at all. For patients with sensitive skin, a very strong topical anesthetic can be applied to minimize discomfort.
Is it permanent?
Yes! If you are prone to vein development, veins may develop in other areas, but not in the area treated by the laser.
