Who Is a Candidate for Laser Vein Treatment?

Laser vein treatmentVascular lesions are patches of ruptured blood vessels underneath the skin that may appear purple or red. Some examples include spider veins, hemangiomas, and broken capillaries. They range in size, shape, and color and can be present at birth or begin forming in adulthood. There are different causes based on the type of vascular lesion present.

Due to their stark contrast from the skin’s natural tone, ruptured blood vessels may cause feelings of insecurity and low self-esteem. That’s why American Dermatology Associates offers laser vein treatment in Sarasota, FL. Keep reading to determine if you’re a candidate for this ground-breaking treatment.

How Does Laser Vein Treatment Work?

Laser vein treatment, sometimes referred to as endovenous laser therapy (EVLT), uses light energy to close and shrink the vein. This causes scar tissue within the vein, which seals it off. Blood flow will then move through other veins nearby instead.

Who Is an Ideal Candidate?

The ideal candidates for laser vein treatment are those who have visible blood vessels and are in good health. They should also have realistic expectations of the results. This treatment often requires a few sessions before their ideal results are achieved.

Those who have issues with blood clotting, are pregnant, have a tattoo in the targeted area, are prone to seizures, are diabetic, or have skin cancer likely will not qualify for treatment.

It’s also an ideal treatment option for patients who have tried and found other treatment options unsuccessful, such as compression stockings, wearing flat shoes, and reducing standing time.

Ultimately, speaking with a qualified dermatologist is the best way to determine if laser vein treatment is right for you.
