Laser Vein Treatment For Spider Veins & Varicose Veins

Laser Vein Treatment

Laser Vein Treatment

Laser vein treatment can reduce the appearance of spider veins or varicose veins using the latest laser technology. These vein patterns are often found around the legs, thighs, arms, hands, or face and can take away from your clear complexion. Unsightly red or blue varicose or spider veins underneath the skin may form as a result of aging, genetics, or obesity. Environmental factors, such as overexposure to the sun or a gradual loss of skin elasticity may also contribute to the appearance of prominent vein patterns. Laser vein reduction is designed to deliver concentrated laser heat energy to spider or varicose veins, effectively breaking up vein clusters over time for long-lasting improvements with minimal downtime and recovery. Laser vein therapy can treat different sized vein patterns, depending on the needs of the patient.

Your Laser Vein Treatment Procedure

Laser vein treatments are usually performed in-office. If necessary, your vein reduction procedure can be performed at an outpatient surgical facility. During treatment, laser energy is directed underneath the skin to the underlying vein patterns. Laser heat energy effectively breaks apart the targeted vein clusters without damaging surrounding tissues or veins. After undergoing vein reduction, spider and varicose veins will begin to gradually dissipate as they are processed by the body.

Your laser vein reduction procedure can be combined with other vein treatments, such as Sclerotherapy, if necessary. Skin care treatments, including laser skin tightening, laser skin resurfacing, or laser acne treatment can also be used alongside vein reduction.

Slight bruising or redness may occur after treatment and should subside within a few weeks. Patients are encouraged to walk frequently after laser vein reduction for the legs to ensure proper vein function. Daily activities can usually be resumed immediately following laser vein therapy. Further specifics and timeframes can be discussed with your plastic surgeon during your in-office consultation.
