Laser Vein Therapy is a proven treatment for restoring the beauty of your skin on any area that may have unsightly broken and dilated vessels also known as spider veins. Laser technology has made rapid advances in the last few decades, which means that we now have a method for removing spider veins that is safer, faster and more effective than any previous treatment. The areas of the body where this occurs most often include the thighs, around the knees, on the calves or the ankles. It can also occur on the chest, back or arms. Fortunately, we have a choice of therapies to get rid of these unsightly veins. Over a period of 4-8 weeks, the leg vein (spider vein) should completely vanish.
Our high-tech Yag laser creates a beam of high-intensity light that penetrates deep into skin tissue, where it delivers a controlled amount of therapeutic heat to the targeted blood vessels. The Yag Laser also contains a patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™) that protects the upper layers of your skin with a cooling burst of cryogen. Together, the long-pulse laser and DCD cooling offer optimal treatment with minimal side effects.
Laser Vein Therapy can also be used to remove other unwanted vascular lesions, such as rosacea, port wine stains and other vascular birthmarks.
Laser Vein Therapy Side Effects
Today’s advancements in laser technology, there are very few side effects. Sometimes, redness or swelling can appear after treatment. A cool compress or gel pack may be applied and any redness or swelling should disappear within a few hours.
