Lasers can now be used to treat leg veins, spider vein and vascular lesions. These conditions can be very bothersome for patients, so we are proud to offer an effective solution with laser vein treatment. With a laser, downtime and discomfort is reduced and there’s no need for compression garments after the procedure.
How Laser Vein Treatment Works
Your surgeon will choose a laser energy setting that is appropriate for targeting your condition. Larger, deeper veins require higher energy than small, superficial blood vessels. The energy penetrates the skin without damaging the surface. With the increased temperature inside the blood vessel, large veins collapse and become closed while the smaller veins dissolve. After your treatment, the veins will disappear almost completely.
Advantages Over Sclerotherapy
- Quicker treatment
- Treats veins that are too small to inject
- Less painful – minimally invasive
- Usually does not require compression wraps
