Laser Vein Removal
Treated with Cutera® lasers:
Laser Vein Treatment
If you want to safely and effectively remove unwanted spider veins, our Laser Vein Treatment may be your answer. Laser Vein Treatments are a fast, effective way to treat superficial small and medium sized spider veins. The laser uses a focused beam of light to selectively target the pigments of the blood to heat the unwanted vein. This seals off the vein, leaving the nearby skin tissue undamaged. The treated vein then dissolves and fade from view. We use the Cutera laser to precisely treat visible vessels, broken capillaries, spider veins and vascular lesions. Your treatment will be tailored to match your condition and desired results. The procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour depending on the size of the area being treated. There should be little to no discomfort, but this varies from patient to patient and depends on the depth of the treatment. There is no need for anesthesia. There is little risk associated with this treatment, although multiple treatments may be necessary depending on the desired results. Recovery time depends on your actual treatment but there is virtually no downtime and you may resume moderate activity immediately. You may experience some redness and you will need to avoid direct sun exposure unless using a sun block of at least SPF 15. laser is able to treat unsightly facial and leg veins in both women and men. By delivering pulses of light energy which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, the vessel is eventually destroyed and reabsorbed by your body.
As with all laser treatments, we will conduct a consultation prior to treatment to evaluate the severity of leg veins. If the veins present are too large or indicate there may be an underlying problem with the valves, we will refer you to a vascular surgeon for further evaluation.
On average, 2-3 treatments are scheduled every 4-6 weeks.
