Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a Candidate?
If you have spider veins, you are a candidate for our laser vein removal. Spider veins commonly appear on the legs, and may become more prominent with age. They may only cause embarrassment at their appearance, or they may be physically painful. The technology used at CosmetiCare is advanced enough for effective treatment on patients of all skin types.
How Does Laser Vein Removal Work?
During your treatment session, the laser delivers waves of light energy, causing the collapse and destruction of the blood vessel itself. The collapsed vein is reabsorbed by the body, and the blood flow that used to run through the visible spider vein is redirected to other blood vessels.
What Are Treatments Like?
During the session, many patients will feel stinging at the site of the targeted area. Usually this pain is not enough to require any type of anesthesia, although some patients find that a topical anesthetic makes them more comfortable. A session usually takes about a half-hour, although this time may vary depending on the desired results.
Is There a Recovery Process?
Since laser vein treatment is noninvasive, there is very little discomfort following your treatment and no downtime for recovery. You may need to wear supportive hose after your session. Some patients may notice a little redness or bruising at the treatment site. For larger vein removal, there may be lingering pigmentation, which can last for a few weeks or up to a few months.
Will I Need Multiple Sessions?
Most patients see significant improvement in the appearance of their spider veins after just one or two treatments. However, a more extensive targeted area may require multiple sessions.
How Soon Will I See Results?
Since it takes some time for the veins to collapse and be absorbed back into the blood streem, the first results are seen after a few weeks. Final results may take longer to appear.
