Many people have what is typically called ‘spider veins’, where they have tiny veins that are red or blue in squiggly lines. Legs are one of the most common areas where people experience spider veins, and such patients can seek successful treatment through laser vein removal.
Laser vein removal is a fast and efficient way to address spider veins, using the Long-Pulsed Yag Laser, along with the GentleMax Laser from Candela. As an alternative to sclerotherapy (leg vein injections), some of the benefits of laser vein removal include:
- Speed. The Long-Pulsed Yag Laser is a quick process that addresses the specific areas of the spider veins. The procedure typically takes no more than 20 minutes to complete.
- Results. After 2-3 treatments, patients typically achieve the desired results. The number of treatments needed will be determined by how many veins must be treated, and by their size.
- Comfort. When the GentleMax system for laser vein removal is used, there may be only a slight stinging sensation, but a local anesthetic can also be used.
- Recovery. The route of laser vein removal requires no downtime. Patients generally return to their normal duties immediately following the procedure.
Other benefits to using laser vein removal include its ability to be used on all types of skin, including those who have tans. The system used in our office is fast, efficient and powerful, and it uses the most up-to-date technology to maximize results and patient comfort.
