When it comes to making us look and feel better, seems like there’s nothing that lasers can’t do: surgical procedures, tattoo removal, wrinkle smoothing, teeth whitening – the list goes on. Since the time when lasers were developed for use in defense and industry, about 55 years ago, they have found their way into practically every kind health care procedure – from life saving to aesthetic.
Lasers can make medical procedures less invasive and less painful
The word laser is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation, and it works by delivering energy in the form of light. But unlike most light sources, laser light focuses on a small, precise area, causing less damage to surrounding tissue during a procedure. That means less scaring, swelling and pain.
Lasers can help you get rid of spider and varicose veins
The heat of the laser light actually damages the unwanted vein, causing scar tissue to form. The scar tissue closes up the vein, so it loses its blood source and dies. Over time, the damaged vein is absorbed by the body and should disappear.
Laser vein treatments are non-invasive and require no down time
The procedure for simple laser vein treatment is performed on the outside of your skin, but it treats the spider and varicose veins under your skin. Several treatments can be necessary over a few months, depending on the size and number of areas treated. The procedure is done in the office, and you will be able to return to your normal daily activities immediately after.
