Laser technology has dramatically improved the treatment of both facial and leg veins. Patients with all skin types can be treated.
Areas that lasers can help treat include:
- Small red vessels on your face, including around your nose.
- Larger blue and smaller red veins on your legs.
- Vascular lesions anywhere on your body, including skin discolorations.
- Most patients typically require one or two treatment sessions, depending on the size and amount of vessels you want treated. There’s no need for anesthesia and no significant downtime after treatment.
Most patients’ smaller vessels will be improved immediately, while larger vessels can take six to eight weeks before optimal results are visible.
Varicose and spider veins occur in both men and women, usually emerging on the legs and ankles. While these veins are often unattractive, they typically do not indicate serious health problems. But they aren’t very nice to look at – and most people would prefer to have them removed.
Healthy veins are needed to transport oxygen to the heart and keep blood flowing well. But as we age, some veins weaken or are damaged. When this occurs, the flow of blood can be backed up and pools form in the veins. This leads to varicose and spider veins.
Risk factors include:
- A family history of the condition.
- Being overweight.
- Lack of regular exercise.
Often varicose veins are just unattractive and pose no medical threat. But in some people varicose veins can cause pain and lead to other health problems, including clotting and skin ulcers.
At Rejuvenate Med Spa, our medical team will meet with you individually to discuss your symptoms, medical history and aesthetic goals so we can customize a laser treatment plan that’s best for you.
If a medical problem is not the cause of your varicose veins, you are likely a good candidate for laser treatments.
Laser vein treatments are simple, safe, effective and just about painless. We perform the treatments in our Oak Brook offices, so no hospitalization is required.
With laser therapy, pulses of light are used to treat problem veins by promoting formation of scar tissue. This tissue helps close veins and safely cut off blood supply to the problem areas.
Treatments cause the veins to fade away, but do not impact your overall health in a negative way. Our patients report this procedure carries little to no pain, although you may feel a brief stinging sensation. If pain is an issue, Rejuvenate offers topical medications that can help make laser vein removal completely pain free.
How many treatments are needed to effectively remove veins varies from patient to patient. Determining factors include how many veins you want to have treated and the condition of those veins. Most of our patients will see positive results after just a few treatments.
If varicose and spider veins are making you feel self-conscious and unhappy with your looks, it’s time to take action to correct the problem.
