Our laser treatment are used to treat spider and varicose veins on the legs, and spider veins on the face by sending wavelengths directly into the vein itself. This causes the vein to heat up internally and turn into scar tissue. The scar tissue gradually fades or disappear. Common locations for dermatologic-pulsed dye treatments include the face, chest, and legs. There is no skin testing required prior to this procedure and results should be permanent, however, extended time in the sun may bring you back to our office sooner rather than later. The procedure feels like a dull rubber-band snap, so there is only a topical anesthetic applied 15 minutes beforehand. The entire procedure is quick and results usually take up to a week to notice and all our patients can return to work immediately after treatment. Sclerotherapy maybe warranted for smaller veins.
