Who Can Benefit from Laser Vein Removal?

If you suffer from the appearance of varicose veins and would like to have them removed, you may be a good candidate for laser vein removal. This treatment uses laser light to damage the varicose vein and cause it to collapse. The light acts as heat when it enters the vein. Once the vein collapses, the blood will flow through healthy veins. The damaged vein can slowly be absorbed by the body and disappear.

Since each person has unique symptoms and skin types, only when consulting our specialist can you know for sure if laser vein removal is the best treatment to get rid of your varicose or spider veins.  However, most patients can be candidates for laser vein removal treatment.

If you end up getting the procedure, there are several types of lasers that can be used to treat varicose and spider veins. Our specialist will choose the one that is suitable for your vein issues. You and the technician will wear eye protection during the treatment. A local anesthetic is not normally needed but you may have a topical anesthetic cream applied before the treatment. The laser is harmless to the skin and passes to the affected vein. The vein receiving treatment absorbs the light as heat and is damaged.

The treatment that may take from 15 minutes to an hour according to the number of veins being treated, and there may be some redness and swelling that can last a few days. You can go back to normal daily activities, but avoid strenuous exercise for the first day. If you need more than one treatment, it will typically be given after four to six weeks.

Laser vein removal is a successful treatment option for eliminating the sight and existence of varicose veins. The procedure is safe, relatively quick, and effective.
