Many people who have vascular issues like varicose or spider veins are bothered by their appearance. They tend to be visible through the skin, and varicose veins can cause bulging as well. If you have one or both of these conditions, you know that the Summer months make it more difficult to hide the conditions with clothing. The fact that the veins are more visible to others can hurt your self-confidence and even interfere with your activities. As a result, this may be a good time to consider laser vein removal at our office. It is a non-invasive treatment method that involves minimal to no downtime. Thanks to this treatment, you can say goodbye to those unwanted veins.
Laser vein removal works when highly concentrated light energy is focused on the veins that are to be removed. The heat from the laser safely destroys the veins. After that, the veins will begin to fade from view. You can then live your life in a way that is free from the constant worry over what other people think of your veins, since the veins will no longer be there.
During a typical laser vein removal procedure, a special device is passed across the top of the skin with the laser pointed toward the vein. The laser pulses are very small. This allows the energy to pass through the skin and reach the vein without impacting surrounding tissue. The heat then destroys the vein. This is an excellent method for treating both spider and varicose veins.
The best results are often achieved after a series of treatment sessions that are spaced a set amount of time apart. However, this depends on the situation, as each individual is unique. Laser vein removal is also an effective treatment for uneven pigmentation, cherry spots, facial redness and more. As an added benefit, it does not involve the use of anesthesia.
Laser vein removal is safer and has a quicker recovery time than the older vein stripping surgery. There is less discomfort involved, and patients can return to normal life much quicker.
