What is Laser Vein Treatment?
Spider veins are clusters of red, blue and purple veins that are commonly found on your legs, ankles and even your face, and they can be a source of embarrassment for a lot of women. But with laser vein treatment, surgeons are able to reduce or eliminate these unsightly veins using laser light energy. These lasers are directed right on the veins, sealing them off and dissolving them.
If you're a resident of Nashville, Henderson, Smyrna or the surrounding areas and you'd like to learn more about this procedure, give us a call today. If you're unsure if you would benefit from this procedure, we recommend looking through some laser vein treatment before and after pictures to give you a better idea if this procedure is right for you. We would also be happy to discuss laser vein treatment prices or any other concerns you might have.
How is Laser Vein Treatment Performed?
Laser vein treatment targets the pigment in the blood of the veins, so there is no need to worry about damaging the healthy skin surrounding them. Your technician will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area to numb it. Then, he or she will direct pulses of light energy on to the treatment area using a special laser vein treatment device. Then, he or she will use a chilled hand piece to cool the treatment area while the laser continues to penetrate the veins.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Vein Treatment?
If you are unhappy with the look of spider veins on your legs, face, feet or anywhere else, you may be a good candidate for laser vein treatment. But keep in mind that spider veins are not the same as varicose veins, which are larger, protruding and often more painful veins. Laser vein treatment does not treat varicose veins, so you may need another treatment if that is your condition. Dr. Marvel will go over all of your options with you during your consultation.
What are the Typical Results of Laser Vein Treatment?
Laser vein treatment can effectively rid your body of ugly bursts of spider veins, giving you back the confidence to show off your smoother, clearer skin. Some patients may need several treatments to obtain optimal results, and your doctor will go over this with you prior to treatment. Full effects can be seen in about six weeks. To help you visualize the results, we can provide you with a variety of laser vein treatment before and after pictures.
What are Laser Vein Treatment Costs?
Laser vein treatment costs depend on the patient, so give us a call today and we'd be happy to give you more details. The size and number of treatment areas will affect pricing, and we take all of that into consideration. Here at Marvel Cosmetic Surgery, we want to help each patient achieve their aesthetic goals, and we vow to do so with professionalism and compassion.
