Laser Treatments for Veins

Laser and pulsed light treat­ments are being used as an alter­na­tive to, or to com­ple­ment, scle­rother­a­py for small veins or spi­der veins. They all work on the same basic prin­ci­ple: light ener­gy is deliv­ered through a small laser hand piece to a tar­get­ed vein, in a series of brief puls­es. The light ener­gy is absorbed by the lin­ing of the blood ves­sels and the blood with­in the blood ves­sels. The heat gen­er­at­ed caus­es a coag­u­la­tion (clot­ting) of the blood, which is sub­se­quent­ly absorbed by the body. 

The advanced laser treat­ments allow the deliv­ery of a pre­cise dosage of ener­gy to each blood ves­sel. Dis­com­fort is min­i­mal and cool­ing devices are used to fur­ther reduce any pain the patient may expe­ri­ence. Sev­er­al treat­ments are usu­al­ly need­ed for opti­mal results. 

Sched­ule a con­sul­ta­tion with our knowl­edge­able staff to deter­mine if a laser vein treat­ment is right for you.
