Laser Vein Removal
Are you on your feet all day? Do you wear high heels? Do you have a high-impact workout routine? Have you injured your knees, ankles or feet? Have your hormones changed recently? Have your legs been out in the sun? Did your mom have veiny legs?
If you answered yes to any or all of these questions then you are probably plagued by those tiny blue and red webs on your legs known as spider veins. Good news! We can help you with that! Unsightly spider veins on the face, nose, and legs affect millions of people around the country. Spider veins are red or purplish in color and may result from sun exposure, hormone therapy, the aging process or heredity.
Fortunately, Elite Medical Skin & Laser Center now offer a safe and effective treatment to rid people of their unwanted spider veins. Small, superficial spider veins can be successfully treated with the Nd:YAG laser. Several treatments are required over monthly intervals.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does a laser help?
With a beam of light, the laser can deliver a prescribed dose of energy to the spider veins. The laser ``selectively`` coagulates the problem veins while sparing surrounding areas. After treatment, the vessel slowly and naturally disappears.
How many treatments are required?
Results are seen within three to six weeks and continue to improve over the next 6 months. Typically, three treatments are recommended.
Can we be sure that this will work on my veins?
This is something that must be determined with each patient individually, but the majority of patients will benefit from this treatment.
Is this treatment difficult?
No. This non-invasive treatment process takes about 30 minutes. After treatment, there is no down time - which means you can resume all of your normal activities 24 hours post treatment. Depending on the area, and how many layers of veins are evident, we may recommend medical grade support hose that can be worn at night for the week following your treatment.
