Laser treatment can address several unsightly vascular issues. These include spider veins, also called telangiectasia, which appear as purple, blue, or red webs on your arms, legs, and face. Other broken blood vessels and capillaries can be treated, as well as tiny veins that appear due to rosacea.
Obvious veins and vascular issues may arise due to the use of oral contraceptives, hormone therapy, or sun exposure. Some people develop them during the process of aging, as the skin thins, or due to genetics.
During laser vein treatment, the Cynosure Elite+™ laser emits a specially-calibrated dose of energy to the vein. The laser penetrates below the outer layer of skin and tissue to target the vein. The light constricts the blood vessels in the legs, causing the veins to disappear.
Unlike surgery or injections, laser vein therapy is noninvasive and requires no long recovery time. Treatment time is brief and comfortable, and laser treatment is ideal for all skin types.
You may have slight redness or swelling, but it disappears within a day or two following treatment. The technicians will advise you not to take hot baths, hot showers, or perform high-intensity exercises for two weeks following treatment. You can resume your daily activities right away.
You’ll notice results immediately after one treatment, but some people benefit from a few sessions and see the veins disappear after three to four weeks. Each session usually lasts 10-20 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area and how many veins are being addressed.
The treatment causes only minimal discomfort, and most people tolerate it well. If you’re concerned about the discomfort, ask your provider about ways to manage it.
