Laser therapy is extremely safe and effective for treating veins on the face, legs, neck and chest. This treatment that can dramatically improve your overall appearance and boost your self confidence without any downtime.
Veins can be rather unsightly, and many people choose to get rid of them so they can feel more confident wearing shorts, dresses and swimwear. While surgery was once the only way to eliminate these veins, the Clearskin Institute of Laser Aesthetics offers a safe, minimally-invasive alternative to remove these veins effectively and leave you with the beautiful legs you want. Not only can we provide this treatment to the patients who need it, but we also train doctors and medical facilities in the use of lasers to remove varicose veins and provide their patients with all the treatment options they may require.
How It Works
Lasers are highly-focused beams of light that can be targeted on specific areas of the body with precision. The heat of the laser damages the veins and essentially cuts off the flow of blood. When veins no longer receive blood flow, they die off and disappear so they no longer cause the unsightly bulges on the legs. There are several types of laser treatments that can be used to remove issues with the veins. A simple laser treatment, for instance, will remove smaller varicose veins and spider veins, while endovenous laser therapy may be required to get rid of the larger varicose veins. Our professionals can evaluate which treatment will provide the results you’re looking for.
What to Expect
When you arrive for your laser treatment, your doctor may administer local anesthesia or even a light sedative to help reduce the discomfort you experience. This is typically only used with endovenous vein treatments. Simple treatments only require the application of lasers on the surface of the skin, while endovenous therapy requires the administration of the laser through a thin catheter inserted into the vein. After the treatment is complete, you will be able to walk immediately and won’t require long downtimes. With a simple treatment, you can return to your daily routine right away. Endovenous treatments may require compression stockings for a week or two and may necessitate a follow-up ultrasound.
While laser vein treatments are relatively safe, there are some risks involved. With our experienced staff, there is a much lower risk of experiencing these side effects, but results can vary depending on the individual. Some of the potential side effects may include changes in skin color, skin burns, sensations of burning or pain and blood clots. Talk to us about your own personal risk factors.
Simple laser treatments have become highly effective in recent years. Most minor vein issues can quickly be resolved with this treatment option. Endovenous laser treatments are also highly effective. In fact, this treatment option works about 94 percent of the time. However, if the first treatment fails to work, a second treatment can often resolve the issue.
