Learn about laser vein treatment
- Posted on: Jun 30 2016
Maybe “treatment” is too nice a word when it comes to what lasers can do to your unwanted veins. The procedure is designed to vanquish unsightly veins just about anywhere you have them. Laser vein treatments are most commonly performed on the face and the legs, but our system can be used to reduce veins anywhere on the body, including:
Laser vein treatments are safe and effective
Unsightly veins can be the result of heredity, weight gain, hormonal changes, skin problems and aging. The procedure can reduce and eliminate everything from the smallest spider veins to larger, deeper reticular veins. Those are the dilated blue and green feeder veins beneath the skin surface that can become enlarged from increased pressure. And reticular veins can often be the cause of spider veins.
The power of pulse energy
Aura uses a laser system to deliver pulses of energy to your unwanted veins. The pulse of energy can be felt as a slight stinging sensation as the blood in the vein begins to coagulate and the vessel is destroyed. But don’t worry:
- Blood flow will be redirected to deeper veins (less visible on the skin’s surface)
- Pain is minimal
- Treatment lasts only about 15 minutes per session
- Some redness and bruising should be your only side effects
- Larger veins may result in brownish pigment, but will resolve in time
- Normal activities can resume immediately
Your legs can be ready for your (late) summer vacation
Most of our patients are able to see results within two to six weeks following treatment, with the majority of the treated veins showing significant improvement. Of course, everyone is different, and your final results may vary.
