It is a non-invasive treatment for spider veins, reticular veins (blue veins), and broken capillaries. It cannot treat varicose veins.
The laser is creates heat inside the blood vessel which closes the vein’s walls, eventually causing the vein to disappear. The laser is very precise and only impacts the selected blood vessel and not the surrounding skin.
During the treatment, you may experience a stinging or burning sensation. Most people find it quite tolerable. Treatment will take between 20-30 minutes, depending upon the number of vessels being treated.
In many cases, improvement is seen immediately after treatment – full clearance of the veins might take several weeks as they slowly fade away. In the case of multiple veins, 2-3 sessions in 6-8 weeks intervals may be needed.
Immediately following treatment, darkening of the vessels may be apparent, with slight redness along the vessel. You should avoid hot baths or excessive physical exercise for 1-2 weeks following treatment. Otherwise, there is no downtime so you are able to continue with your normal activities immediately.
