Laser Vein Treatment Sarasota, FL
Do you suffer from varicose veins or spider veins on your legs? Do you have broken blood vessels on your face? Veins such as these and other visible benign vascular lesions on any part of the body are common concerns. With laser vein treatment, they can be a thing of the past. All laser vein procedures are performed by Dr. Trent.
How does laser vein treatment work for spider veins and varicose veins?
During laser vein treatment, light penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the pigment in the blood. Delays between the pulses allow for sufficient cooling of the epidermis and thermal relaxation of the vessel. Immediately after treatment, the temperature within the treated blood vessel has been raised sufficiently for it to collapse the vessel and causes the body to break it down and remove it.
How long does it take? How many laser vein treatments are needed?
A laser vein treatment takes between 15 and 30 minutes depending on the size area being treated. Multiple treatments can be required.
How long before I start to see results from Laser Vein Removal?
Some spider veins and blood vessels will disappear immediately; other veins, such as varicose veins, may take 2-4 weeks to resolve, depending on the area of treatment.
Is laser vein treatment painful?
Laser vein treatment feels similar to a rubber band snapping on the skin, which is tolerable.
What is the post-treatment care after laser vein treatment?
You may apply ice packs for the swelling after treatment of varicose veins, spider veins or broken blood vessels. You will need to avoid hot baths and vigorous exercise for 48 hours after treatment. Compression hose can be used to help the healing of leg veins after treatment. You should wear them for 1-2 weeks after treatment.
What are the possible side effects of laser vein treatment?
Laser vein treatment is a safe procedure, but there is always a risk of possible side effects. Common side effects are redness, burning sensations, bruising, and swelling. Pigment changes, blistering, scarring, nerve damage, and blood clots are serious but rare side effects.
