LASER VEIN TREATMENT
This treatment reduces the appearance of veins by laser technology that pulses and penetrates the superficial blood vessel. The heat generated from the laser coagulates the blood inside the vessel causing it to collapse and seal. Following treatment over the next few weeks, the vessel should disappear and the cells will remove all the blood. Nearby skin surfaces will not be damaged because the laser treatment allows the delivery of a precise dosage of energy to each blood vessel. Blood vessel treatments on the face require the use of a green light laser. Once the vessels are targeted with the laser, the vessel wall collapses and are absorbed by the body. Generally 2-3 treatments are needed for optimal results, 4 to 6 weeks apart. After treatment, the affected area is red but this usually fades within a few hours. Generally, there are minimal side effects but in rare circumstances, a bruise may result.
