Laser Vein Treatment
Typically, spider veins tend to be very superficial, while blue veins behind the knee are deeper. To effectively reduce spider veins, patients will typically need two sessions, spaced at 6 to 8-week intervals.
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.
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.
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.
