What is Spider Vein Removal treatment?
Spider Vein Removal is a safe and effective non-surgical laser treatment. This advanced technological procedure delivers a precise level of energy to the blood vessels of the treatment area, erasing spider veins and some varicose veins. No anesthetic of any kind is necessary.
How does Spider Vein Removal Treatment work?
Before the treatment begins, each patient’s skin and medical history will be reviewed in order to determine the severity of the treatment area. We may need to perform some tests If the veins are due to a more serious disorder. As the treatment begins, light energy will be delivered through a small handpiece to the treatment area. This energy will then be absorbed into the blood and blood vessels of the targeted area, but will not be absorbed into the surrounding tissue. The designated blood vessels will then start to coagulate. Blood flow will be redirected elsewhere in the body and as a result, the veins will begin to deteriorate. Your body will naturally process the deteriorated veins. Contact us today to schedule a consultation appointment to learn more about this highly advanced and exciting process.
How many Spider Vein Removal Treatments will I need?
Since every patient is different, results will differ from person to person. It may take 2-3 treatments to get the best possible results. Treatments can be spaced out over a course of 4-6 weeks each.
What can I expect after Spider Vein Removal Treatment?
- There is no downtime for recovery necessary
- Final results may not be visible right away
- Depending on the severity of the blood vessels, some patients may need to wear a support hose to keep pressure on the treatment area
- Some patients may experience bruising around the treated area, but this usually fades after the first week
