Will laser therapy remove my veins?
To determine which veins will respond we will obtain a full medical history prior to your therapy Prior surgery or treatment on your veins could affect your treatment outcome. In some cases, further testing may be recommended to determine if there are underlying venous problems.
What does it feel like?
Although many patients report little to no discomfort, some may experience a mild stinging sensation only when the laser pulse is delivered. The cold tip in the CoolGlide hand piece helps soothe the skin as the laser is delivered.
How long do the treatments take?
Treatment times vary depending on the number and size of the vessel's to be treated.
How many treatments will I need?
In many cases, significant improvement is realized in as few as 1 to 2 treatments. In some cases spider veins may appear and therefore additional treatments may be necessary. Treatments may occur in 3 to 4 week intervals.
When can I resume normal activities?
Although we encourage you to resume normal activities almost immediately, we do ask that you refrain from vigorous activities for at least 24 hours and exercise for 2 to 3 weeks after the treatment. Please also avoid hot baths and hot tubs for 2 to 3 weeks after treatment.
