Laser Vein Reduction

The majority of those red or purple surface veins can be reduced or eliminated by laser therapy with little or no discomfort. During treatment, the laser “zaps” the vein it is targeting, causing the blood that has pooled there to heat up, resulting in the depletion of the vein.

The average treatment time ranges between 15 to 30 minutes but may vary depending on the number and size of the vessel(s) to be treated. Although many clients report little or no discomfort, some may experience a mild stinging sensation only when the laser pulse is delivered. The cold tip on the handpiece helps soothe the skin as the laser is delivered. A cooling system is also used to help cool the skin and minimize your discomfort. You will see improvements after one visit, but up to 3 visits may be required to achieve desired results. Treatments are recommended at 6 to 8 week intervals.
