Leg Vein Removal New York City

The laser selectively heats vein walls until they collapse and then seal shut. The sealed vein is then absorbed by the body over a period of months.

Details

  • Many describe that each laser pulse feels like a warm sting
  • Treatments take between 5 and 30 minutes depending on specifics of treatment
  • Usually 2 to 3 treatments within 3 to 6 week intervals achieve considerable improvement
  • Veins are permanently improved or eliminated but if more appear they may require follow up treatment

Treatment

There is an initial consultation with a staff member to discuss eligibility, details of treatment, and to schedule a treatment time. Treatment will begin with a clear gel applied to the skin that helps the chilled laser handpiece glide. The laser is then adjusted to precisely match the size of the vein. The handpiece will be held against the skin and deliver laser pulses evenly along the length of the vein.

A red mark may appear soon after treatment and last for a few days. You may be asked to wear a compression bandage and avoid hot baths and heavy exercise. Lastly, you should take care to limit sun exposure and work with your doctor for the best post treatment care.

Treatment

There is an initial consultation with a staff member to discuss eligibility, details of treatment, and to schedule a treatment time. After arriving for your appointment, the area to be treated will be cleaned and a topical anesthetic may be applied. Right before treatment you will receive safety glasses or eye shields to be placed over your eyes and the anesthetic will be removed (if applied).

Treatment will begin with a clear gel applied to the skin that helps the chilled laser hand piece glide. The hand piece will be moved across the treatment area in an even pattern for one or more passes to achieve even coverage as the laser energy is delivered.

After treatment your skin may appear flushed and/or swollen which will usually subside after a few hours or days depending on the intensity of treatment. Even if treated hair appears unchanged, it is now lifeless and will fall out over time. Lastly, you should take care to limit sun exposure and work with your doctor for post treatment care.
