How does laser treatment for leg veins work?
Using a handheld device, we are able to target thread veins on the legs. The laser penetrates the skin and the energy from the laser beam causes the veins to collapse and seal shut. The treated veins are then broken down and absorbed by the body.
This procedure is suitable for superficial veins up to 4mm in diameter.
Why do I need to have a test spot performed?
We conduct a test spot on all clients receiving any kind of laser treatment, to ensure there is no adverse reaction. For compliance with regulations and the safety of our clients we require to carry out a test spot at least 24 hrs prior to any treatment, and after annual services/maintenance of our equipment is carried out.
Our lasers are serviced and continually maintained to ensure our equipment always runs at optimum levels, and that we provide a beneficial service to all our clients. Therefore, depending on the timing of your laser treatments, you may be asked to attend the clinic for more than your initial test spot. The laser technician will provide further details to you.
What happens during the treatment?
We will apply a numbing gel to the treatment area and then ask you to lie down and relax on one of our comfortable treatment tables. You will also be given protective eyewear to wear throughout the procedure.
Using a small handheld device, we target the thread veins (also referred to as spider veins) and broken capillaries. The laser is delivered in short bursts to protect your skin.
The treatment will take 30-60 minutes depending on the area to be treated.
When will I see results?
You should see some difference to the appearance of your leg veins after just one treatment but it can take eight to twelve weeks for the results of your treatment to be completely appreciated.
What can I expect immediately after treatment?
Immediately after your leg vein laser treatment, the area may be slightly swollen and a red mark resembling a cat scratch can persist for a few weeks. You can improve the results by wearing compression stockings and avoiding heavy exercise and hot baths.
