FAQ

How long does the treatment take?

The amount of time needed for laser treatment of the veins will vary from 15 minutes to one hours depending on the size of the area being treated as well as the severity of the problem.

During your first visit we’ll do an assessment of the veins to give you a time and price approximation. Usually, more than one treatment may be needed to achieve the desired results.

How should I prepare for Laser Vein Treatment?

There are no major preparations required before the laser treatment.
A few recommendations include:
• Avoid sun exposure, aspirin, and alcohol consumption at least for two weeks prior to the treatment.
• On the day of the treatment you should avoid all creams, lotions and moisturizers on the area that is going to be treated.

Is Laser Vein therapy painful?

The majority of individuals do not require any type of anesthesia. You may feel a slight burning or stinging sensation as the laser
What should I expect from Laser Vein therapy?
The results of laser treatment for spider veins are not immediate. After laser therapy the vessels underneath the skin will gradually change from a dark blue to light red color then eventually disappear in two to six weeks.
**In most circumstances clients require multiple sessions to see results.

Spider veins are small blood vessels that appear close to the surface of the skin. They can occur anywhere on the body and are sometimes referred to as broken capillaries when they appear on the face. Sometimes confused with varicose veins, which are raised, spider veins are flat on the skin. Spider veins and broken blood vessels are often genetic or may appear due to hormonal changes, pregnancy, or simply the passage of time. No matter what their cause, our experienced aestheticians can easily treat them with our Elite lasers, which integrate both Nd-YAG and Alexandrite wavelengths for optimal flexibility.
