About Vein Treatment
Unwanted spider and varicose veins can be caused by a number of factors, including genetics, heavy lifting or your body’s natural aging process. These types of veins may be a cosmetic nuisance, but they can also cause swelling, discomfort or a feeling of heaviness in your legs. If you’re troubled by unsightly or protruding veins, non surgical laser vein treatment may help to significantly improve or even eliminate the appearance of these veins and their symptoms. In more severe cases, vein surgery may be required for optimum results.
You will be able to discuss your individual situation with one of our experienced cosmetic surgeons during your initial consultation, where you can also discuss your various vein treatment options and which might be the right one for you.

Your Vein Treatment Procedure
The most common vein treatment procedure is a process called sclerotherapy. This is a nonsurgical procedure that involves injecting a solution into the affected veins, which causes them to eventually collapse and disappear. Most people benefit from multiple sclerotherapy treatments, which generally take 15 to 20 minutes to perform, although the exact number of sessions required will depend on your unique situation.
Laser treatments may be another nonsurgical option that can help reduce the appearance of spider veins. Laser therapy can treat the small to mid-sized veins and may be particularly effective for veins that occur in the face. A handheld laser device passes over the treatment area and the laser gently penetrates the skin to target the veins. As the veins receive the laser’s light, they dissolve and are absorbed by the body.
Your Recovery & Results
Because both sclerotherapy and laser therapy are both non surgical, minimally invasive procedures, you should be able to return to your normal activities directly after vein treatment, although vigorous exercise is not recommended during the first 24 hours following your procedure. Compression stockings or socks can also be helpful after treatment to help to keep pressure off of your veins.
For men and women that have laser therapy, avoiding sun exposure after your session is important. There may be some initial redness immediately following the laser treatment which should dissipate over the subsequent days and weeks.
Within the following weeks and months, you should begin to see your final results in the form of smoother, uniform skin that is free of spider and varicose veins.
