Light Energy Treatment
The advanced laser treatment we use is more efficient than other laser treatments. The system delivers pulses of light energy, causing the blood within the vein to thicken and then be absorbed by your body. The light energy also destroys the vessel, which is eventually reabsorbed by your body. The blood flow is then redirected to veins deeper below your skin’s surface where they’re not visible.
You can generally see significant improvement within two to six weeks of your treatment. Leg veins typically require a series of four to six treatments, six weeks apart. Veins on the face are absorbed more quickly, typically within one to two weeks and may require periodic touch up treatments.
Side effects of this laser treatment are minimal and typically last less than 24 hours, and may include slight reddening, local swelling, and occasional bruising.
One of the treatments we provide is Sclerotherapy. It is a procedure often used to treat varicose veins in adults or blood vessel malformations in all ages. The Sclerosing solution is injected into the blood vessel making them shrink, and then dissolve over a period of time as the body absorbs the treated vein. Sclerotherapy is a non-invasive procedure taking only about 30 minutes with minimal downtime.
Four to six treatments are typically required and may require periodic touch-up treatments.
