Laser vein treatment
Laser vein treatment is carried out via the use of high-intensity pulses of light used to clear red, broken veins permanently.
Laser vein treatments last between 15-30 minutes, although many treatments are needed spread out over several weeks to see results.
The lasers used in laser vein treatment produce a high-intensity ray of pure light which gives off heat energy; the laser beam fixes on the blood-filled vessels beneath the skin and destroys them without harming surrounding areas.
Laser vein treatment can be used on many problems including spider veins, freckles, age spots, birthmarks, warts, scars, stretch marks and also for the removal of tattoos.
The area that will receive the laser treatment will firstly be numbed with a cream, and you'll wear goggles to protect your eyes. Then the laser will be directed at the problem area and pulses will begin to treat the area; some people feel stinging, while others find the Laser vein treatment painful.
Spider veins usually need three treatments, after laser vein treatment you can return back to work straight away the treated area may be tender afterwards for a few hours.
Results of your laser vein treatment will show gradually over the course of your treatments.
