Many people have problems with benign vascular lesions. Unsightly veins ranging from telangiectasia to spider veins to deeper vascular lesions can now be treated effectively with laser therapy. Using an infrared light source or Broadband Light (Intense Pulsed Light) and a variety of filters we treat tiny, visible vessels, broken capillaries, spider veins, vascular lesions and discoloration of the skin.
This treatment specifically targets the thousands of tiny veins and blemishes that create a florid and uneven complexion. You will see an amazing reduction in this condition over the course of your treatment. An even and clear complexion will emerge and with it a fresher and more youthful appearance.
Advanced laser technology offers an effective treatment for spider veins of the face and other areas.
One of our specialist consultants will meet with you to determine if you are a good candidate for Laser Spider Vein Treatment. Unfortunately, laser therapy is not effective for larger spider vein removal. If you have a combination of large and small spider veins, you should consider sclerotherapy for the larger ones first, followed later by laser treatment for the smaller ones.
The laser is applied to the skin over your spider veins. Laser energy causes your spider veins to coagulate and shrink. Usually there is no need for anesthesia; you will experience a feeling similar to a small rubber band snapping against your skin.
Over 2–6 weeks, your spider veins usually fade. After each treatment, you will see a 70–80% improvement in the appearance of face spider veins and 30–40% improvement in leg spider veins. An average of three treatments will be required at three-month intervals. The treatment may cause minor bruising which usually improves within a week, but often, recovery is immediate. You may apply make-up immediately after the treatment.
With a beam of light, the laser can deliver a prescribed dose of energy to the spider veins. The laser "selectively" coagulates the problem veins while sparing surrounding areas. After treatment, the vessel slowly and naturally disappears.
Results are seen within three to four weeks. Typically, one to two treatments are recommended.
This is something that must be determined with each patient individually, but the majority of patients will benefit from this treatment.
No. This non-invasive treatment process takes between 10 minutes to about 20 minutes, depending on your situation. After treatment, there is no down time which means you can resume all of your normal activities immediately afterward.
