What is Laser Vein Therapy?

Laser vein treatments employ a specific wavelength from an ND:YAG laser to penetrate the skin and target a pigment called hemoglobin within the blood vessels. The laser energy heats the blood vessels, causing them to collapse and gradually be reabsorbed by the body. 

Vascular laser therapy is an effective, non-invasive way to treat spider veins, telangiectasias and other vascular lesions with minimal discomfort and downtime.

Benefits

Your Laser Treatment

Instructions

Proper preparation can enhance the effectiveness of any treatment, ensuring optimal targeting. While following aftercare guidelines is crucial for the best outcomes and minimizing side effects.

Before Treatment

  • Consultation: Verify with your provider that YAG laser is suitable for your specific condition.
  • Avoid sun exposure: Protect the treatment area from the sun for 4-6 weeks prior to minimize the risk of hyperpigmentation.
  • Stop skin irritants: Discontinue use of products containing retinol, glycolic acid, and other irritants one week before treatment.
  • No waxing or plucking: Refrain from hair removal methods like waxing or plucking in the treatment area for at least 2 weeks prior.
  • Inform about medications: Discuss any medications you’re taking, especially those that make you light-sensitive.
  • Cleanse the area: Ensure the treatment area is clean and free of makeup, creams, or lotions on the day of treatment.

Post Treatment

  • Mild redness and swelling: Common for the first few hours up to a few days.
  • Cool compresses: Apply as needed to reduce swelling and discomfort.
  • Moisturize: Keep the skin hydrated with a gentle moisturizer as recommended by your provider.
  • Sun protection: Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect the treated area from sun exposure.
  • Avoid harsh products: Stick to gentle skincare products until the skin fully recovers.
  • Follow-up: Attend follow-up appointments to assess the treatment’s progress and for any necessary adjustments.

Ideal Candidates for Laser Vein Therapy

Ideal candidates for vascular laser therapy are individuals of any age and gender looking to reduce the appearance of mild to moderate vascular lesions on the legs or face. Safe for all skin tones, thai procedure can effectively address:

  • Benign vascular lesions 
  • Broken capillaries
  • Leg veins
  • Port wine stains
  • Telangiectasias (spider veins) 
  • Venous lakes

Contraindications include pregnancy, active skin infections and certain medical conditions affecting the skin.

Before & Afters

Patients can expect to see a noticeable reduction in the visibility of treated veins after just one session of laser vein therapy. Full results will appear a few weeks post-treatment, as the body naturally reabsorbs the collapsed blood vessels. Some individuals may require additional treatments for optimal results, with each session building upon the last.

What to Expect at Your Spider Vein Removal Treatment

Consultation

First, our experts will assess your skin and vein concerns. During this meeting, we discuss your medical history, examine the targeted areas and set realistic expectations. This step is crucial for crafting a treatment plan that addresses your specific needs and desired results.

Procedure

On the day of treatment, one of our laser technicians will cleanse your skin and provide you with protective eyewear. The YAG laser device is then precisely targeted at the veins, with each pulse emitting a controlled amount of laser energy to collapse the unwanted vessels. 

The procedure is relatively quick, typically lasting between 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the extent of the area being treated. Patients often describe the sensation as a mild snap, similar to the feeling of a rubber band against the skin.

Recovery

Post-treatment, you can expect minimal to no recovery time, meaning you can return to most usual activities. Side effects include slight redness or swelling in the treated area, which generally subsides within a few hours to a couple of days. In the case of larger treated areas, you may experience bruising or discoloration lasting days to weeks. We advise avoiding direct sun exposure and applying sunscreen to protect the treated areas.

Follow-Ups

While you’ll notice significant improvements after just one session, achieving optimal results may require additional appointments. The total number of treatments you’ll need depends on the severity and number of veins treated, as well as your body’s unique response to the laser.

How Much Does Laser Vein Therapy Cost?

The cost of laser vein therapy can vary based on factors such as the size and number of areas treated, the number of sessions required and individual patient needs. We’re here to accommodate your specific goals and budget with competitive pricing and financing options. For more detailed information and current specials, we encourage you to contact us directly.

Do I Need Laser Vein Therapy or Sclerotherapy?

Laser vein therapy delivers focused light energy directly into the targeted veins, where it causes the vein to heat up and collapse. Over time, the treated vein is reabsorbed by the body and fades from view. 

Sclerotherapy works slightly differently. It involves injecting a sclerosing, or hardening, solution directly into the vein, irritating the blood vessel and causing it to collapse, stick together and turn into scar tissue.

Laser treatments are most effective for smaller telangiectasias, especially those on the face and other sensitive areas where injections might be less desirable. Sclerotherapy, on the other hand, is more effective for larger spider veins and varicose veins on the legs. It’s a time-tested procedure with a long history of effectiveness, but like laser therapy, it may require multiple sessions for optimal results. 

With these factors in mind, the best treatment option for you comes down to the characteristics of the veins being treated, the location of the veins and your personal comfort and preferences.
