In the past, reduction of varicose veins required varicose vein surgery. Now, there is a much simpler way to effectively reduce the appearance of these leg veins; laser vein treatment.
The GentleMax Pro Plus Laser Vein Reduction is a powerful laser from Candela that targets unwanted spider veins with a multi-wavelength light system.
Laser vein removal is an easy, fast, and effective way to treat superficial veins. The laser uses a focused beam of light. In the treatment of veins, the wavelength of light targets the pigment in the blood. The laser heats up the small vein and destroys it.
Vascular Laser uses a 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser to specifically target hemoglobin and cauterize the damaged veins. The laser energy gently heats the unwanted vasculature and coagulates the hemoglobin (red blood cells), while also stimulating the body’s healing response.
Many different types of vasculature can be treated with Vascular Laser Therapy, including facial veins, leg veins, spider veins, reticular veins, and cherry or spider angiomas.
The laser does not cause any damage to the nearby skin tissue. Over a period of four to six weeks, the vein is reabsorbed by the body and disappears.
Is there any down time after laser vein treatment?
Downtime following Vascular Laser Therapy is minimal to none. Immediately post treatment your skin will be slightly flushed and can be slightly raised, which will return to normal within a few hours. Bruising and swelling may result, which usually resolves within a few days to week.
After your treatment you will be advised on specific homecare, which will include avoiding activities that draw heat and/or sweat to the skin for the first 24 hours after treatment, including exercise, hot tubs, tanning or sun exposure, saunas, hot showers or baths, etc.
The treatment could be done every 4 to 6 weeks.
