What does leg vein treatment do?

Spider veins appear on the legs or face for a variety of reasons. They may be inconspicuous at first, but over time, they become easily visible through the skin, affecting your self-esteem, self-confidence, and even what you choose to wear! At Skintegrity MedSpa, our advanced laser technology can remove spider veins safely, quickly, and effectively.


How does leg vein treatment work?

A cosmetic laser emits a prescribed dose of energy to the vein. The laser "selectively" targets the problem vein, while sparing surrounding areas. After treatment, the vessel will be absorbed by the body and naturally disappear. Typically, only one or two treatments are required. Treatment time usually varies between 15 and 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area treated.

What can I expect with laser leg vein treatment?

Treatment times can vary between 15 and 60 minutes, depending on the severity of the problem and the size of the treatment area. More than one treatment may be needed to achieve the desired results. Most patients require no anesthesia, but if you request it, a topical numbing cream can be applied prior to treatment. You may feel a slight burning or stinging sensation as the laser penetrates your skin.

The treatment causes only minimal discomfort. You may feel a slight bump on the skin soon after the procedure, which should disappear within two to four hours. Any redness or swelling should be gone within a day, and you will be able to resume normal activities immediately. However, you should avoid strenuous aerobic exercise for 48 to 72 hours post-treatment.
