How does Laser Vein Removal work?
The laser beams target the red blood vessels underneath the skin which are causing the problem. The warmth of the laser also heats up collagen fibres, which in turn rebuild and support the blood vessels, this helps to delay the development of more thread veins.
What does Laser Vein Removal feel like?
Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy is delivered through the hand piece. Although no local anaesthetic or pain medication is typically required, many patients opt to use a topical aesthetic prior to treatment. Following the treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.
How many Laser Vein Removal treatments will I need?
In most cases one or two Laser Vein Removal treatments are sufficient. However, the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, colour, and size of the veins being treated. You will receive advice on your own requirements in your Laser Vein Removal consultation.
What happens after the Laser Vein Removal treatment?
Although many patients report few if any side effects, those most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin. These effects typically last for less than 24 hours. In some cases, some temporary bruising may occur. When larger veins are treated, a tan or brown- ish pigment may persist for a few weeks or months following treatment. Patients who have significant leg vein treatments may be advised to wear support hose for a short period of time.
When will I see results?
Most patients find that the majority of the treated veins have shown significant improvement within two to six weeks of treatment. However, your final results may not be apparent for several months. Over time, it is possible for new veins to appear, but these too can be removed with laser vein therapy.
