Shining a (laser) light on your unsightly veins
- Posted on: Mar 30 2017
For the past several months, your jeans and sweat pants have been helping you hide a problem – your varicose and spider veins. But it’s almost time for your legs to make their warm weather appearance, and the idea might have you alarmed. We can help.
Shorts weather is right around the corner. Your legs can be ready
You don’t have to live with unsightly leg veins. At Aura, we can provide safe and effective treatment that can reduce and even eliminate unwanted spider and varicose veins.
Our laser system can be used to treat a wide range of leg veins
We can treat everything from superficial spider to deeper varicose veins. The procedure is fairly quick, virtually painless (a stinging or snapping sensation) and requires little to no down time. You can likely resume all your normal activities immediately and only need to avoid rigorous activities for about 24 hours after treatment.
The laser delivers pulses of light energy
This causes the blood within the treated vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel. Over time, your body will reabsorb it. Our laser treatments can be used for:
- Small, facial veins (telangiectasia)
- Spider veins on the legs
- Large blue veins on the legs
- Almost any area of the body
Laser vein treatments take about 15 minutes per visit
The number of sessions required can vary, depending on:
- Number of veins being treated
- Number of areas being treated
- Color of veins being treated
- Size of vessels being treated
One to two laser sessions are usually sufficient, and individual results will vary.
See results by summer
Most of our patients report that their veins show significant improvement after about two to six weeks post procedure. For some, it can take several months. That’s why this is an ideal time to start getting rid of unwanted veins, just in time for summer clothing and activities.
