Unlike surgery that leaves scars, laser leg vein removal uses laser light to constrict blood vessels in the legs, causing the veins to visibly disappear. It’s a simple, clinically-proven procedure for reducing the appearance of veins on your legs that gets you back on your feet quickly – and gets your legs back to their youthful appearance with ease.
What types of leg veins can be treated?
Varicose veins, deeper blue veins, discoloured clusters (known as “spider veins”) that are near the skin surface.
What technology is used for deeper, blue veins?
The NdYag laser is used to treat larger, deeper veins.
These veins respond to the precise energy level and wavelength of light that is used.
The small spot of laser light travels through the skin and is absorbed by the blood within the vein, on the basis of its color. the resulting heat coagulates or clots the blood and destroys the function of the vein. this process does not affect any of the surrounding tissue.
What is a treatment like?
A pulse of laser energy may feel like a pinch similar to a snapped rubber band.
Is it painful?
The entire procedure is brief and non-invasive – no needles are used at any time.
