Laser leg vein therapy is a safe, effective method of treatment for unsightly leg veins. They may present as green, blue, purple or red vessels on any part of the leg or foot. Becoming the preferred method of treatment for thousands of people, we look forward to talking with you personally to decide upon a plan for treatment.
WHAT IS LASER VEIN REDUCTION?
Laser treatment can quickly eliminate unsightly leg veins, and spider veins up to 4 mm in diameter. The laser energy is absorbed by the pigment in your blood and collapses the unwanted vein. The laser energy is delivered through a hand-held device with a cooling tip that protects your skin. Most patients see excellent improvement after just one to three treatments. Everyone responds differently to treatments, so a consultation is required before treatment can begin.
BENEFITS OF LASER VEIN REDUCTION:
- Minimizes the redness and bruising normally associated with traditional treatments.
- The appearance of leg veins will either dramatically fade or completely disappear during the treatment.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING MY TREATMENT?
After treatment, you should expect to see some swelling and irritation over the area. Many of the vessels will immediately disappear, but some vessels may temporarily darken while they are being absorbed by your body. Occasionally a vessel may bruise or harden, a temporary effect that will take time to disappear.
Do not use any blood thinners during laser vein reduction treatment. Your therapy will be more effective and your chances of bruising will be lower if your blood is of normal consistency. Plan on avoiding vigorous exercise and hot tubs and hot baths for 5 days after treatment. You will need to wear compression stockings over the treated areas for 5 days as well.
Although some people find that their treatment areas have completely healed within a few weeks, others will find that it takes several months to see the greatest improvement over the treatment areas.
