Laser Vein Treatment

Laser vein treatment is a non-invasive procedure to reduce the appearance of spider veins and small varicose veins. It utilizes focused laser energy to heat and collapse the targeted blood vessels, gradually fading their visibility on the skin’s surface. Skin Center & Total Health Spa performs laser vein treatment using the Long Pulsed Nd:YAG Laser. The Yag energy heats and shrinks blood vessels, causing them to collapse. We use this cutting-edge laser device to remove small varicose veins and vascular lesions like angiomas.

Lasers vs. Traditional Vein Therapy

Different types of lasers have been used during the last 20 years to address various kinds of vascular lesions (dilated veins and capillaries). Among these lesions are included problematic leg vessels (varicose veins). These superficial vascular problems include small spider veins and larger varicose veins. Traditionally, sclerotherapy (concentrated salt solution) and surgical intervention with stripping were the main methods of treatment for patients with this problem.

Today, the lasers at the Skin Center & Total Health Spa are being used to expand the treatment of spider and varicose veins in the legs, ankles, and feet. The advantages of this treatment are the lower rate of side effects, shorter healing time, and absence of compression therapy after treatment when compared to traditional therapy.

What Does Laser Vein Treatment Treat?

Laser vein treatment effectively addresses a range of vascular concerns. This cutting-edge procedure is particularly well-suited for treating small varicose veins and vascular lesions like angiomas. Whether you’re struggling with visible veins on your legs or unsightly vascular blemishes on your skin, laser vein treatment can provide a non-invasive solution. By utilizing the Long Pulsed Nd:YAG Laser, this treatment option can help you achieve smoother, clearer skin.

What Is Laser Vein Treatment?

Laser Vein Treatment is a state-of-the-art medical procedure that utilizes the Long Pulsed Nd:YAG Laser to address a variety of vascular issues. This technique offers a non-surgical solution for individuals seeking to eliminate unsightly varicose veins and vascular lesions.

The Long Pulsed Nd:YAG Laser works by delivering controlled bursts of Yag energy into the targeted blood vessels. This energy is absorbed by the hemoglobin in the blood, causing the vessel to heat up and ultimately collapse.

As a result, the treated veins and lesions gradually fade from view over time. Laser vein treatment is highly precise, ensuring that only the affected areas are treated, leaving surrounding tissues unharmed. It’s a safe and efficient way to improve the appearance of your skin, boost your confidence, and regain smoother skin.

The Ideal Candidates for Laser Vein Treatment

The ideal candidates for laser vein treatment are individuals looking for a non-surgical option to reduce visible veins. This treatment is particularly effective for those with spider veins or small varicose veins. People in good general health, without serious skin conditions or blood clotting disorders, usually achieve the best outcomes. It’s essential for candidates to have realistic expectations regarding the results of this cosmetic procedure.

The Laser Vein Treatment: What to Expect

Your session typically begins with a consultation with a trained healthcare professional specializing in laser treatments. They will assess your specific concerns and discuss your medical history to ensure you are a suitable candidate for the procedure. You may be asked to avoid certain medications or skincare products in the days leading up to your treatment to minimize potential side effects. The treatment area will be cleaned and prepped, and you may be provided with protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the laser’s light.

During the actual treatment, you’ll be positioned comfortably, and the Long Pulsed Nd:YAG Laser will be carefully calibrated to target the problematic blood vessels or lesions. As the laser is activated, you may feel a mild sensation of warmth or a slight snapping feeling as it interacts with the blood vessels. The laser energy heats and shrinks the targeted vessels, causing them to collapse. The procedure is precise, ensuring only the affected areas are treated, leaving surrounding tissue unharmed. After the session, you can return to your normal activities immediately, with little to no downtime required.

The Recovery Process After Laser Vein Treatment

Immediately after the procedure, it’s common to experience mild redness, swelling, and, in some cases, a sensation resembling a mild sunburn in the treated area. However, these side effects are usually temporary and should subside within a few days. You can resume your regular activities immediately after the treatment, and there is often no need for downtime.

Over the next several weeks to months, you’ll notice a gradual improvement in the appearance of the treated veins and vascular lesions as they fade from view. It’s crucial to follow any post-treatment care instructions provided by your healthcare provider, which may include avoiding prolonged sun exposure. Multiple sessions may be necessary for optimal results, depending on the extent of the vascular issues being addressed.
