Laser Vein Removal

PrintE-mail

Millions of women are bothered by unsightly spider veins or varicose veins, which make them feel embarrassed to wear shorts, skirts or swimsuits. In the past, this problem could only be solved through painful procedures and surgery, but those days are mercifully over.

PURE medi-spa provides effective non surgical treatments for both spider veins or varicose veins. Lasers allow delivery of a precise dosage of energy to each vein, so it is no longer necessary to have painful surgical stripping of varicose veins. Non-surgical options are available which allow immediate return to normal activities!

 

How does PURE medi-spa’s laser leg vein treatment work?

Lasers deliver concentrated light in a specific wavelength of the spectrum. Each wavelength is absorbed by a different target, such as pigment, blood, or water. The handpiece delivers light pulses in the 1064 nm wavelength, which is ideal for targeting leg veins.The light pulses heat the blood within the leg vein. The heat of the blood affects the vessel lining, which causes the vessel to constrict and eventually fade from view. This same technology can also be used to remove or reduce unwanted facial veins.

 

What do laser leg vein treatments feel like?

The physician or medical aesthetician will move the handpiece over your skin, following the length of the vein, pulsing the laser on the targeted vein all the while. Each pulse will send a beam of light through your skin, while a flashing light, an audible tone, and a mild sensation on the skin will tell you when the handpiece is being pulsed.

 

Are these treatments safe? Are they painful?

Your PURE medi-spa physician will go over the risks and benefits of the treatment with you during your complimentary consultation. PURE medi-spa’s leg vein treatments are skin-safe and comfortable. The handpiece delivers its energy in one smooth, gentle pulse, to protect the skin from a sharp rise in temperature.
In addition, a chilled water supply runs through the laser handpiece, all the way down to its tip. Since the handpiece tip is in contact with the skin during treatment, your skin is continually cooled, so that you feel little heat or discomfort from the laser pulses. What should I expect after treatment? Immediately after treatment you will see any of these three possible outcomes:

The vessel will disappear
The vessel will darken
The vessel will shrink

The surrounding skin may turn pink and be slightly swollen for up to 24 hours.
Often more than one treatment is necessary to achieve full clearance of leg veins.
These non-invasive laser pulses cause unsightly vessels to fade from view in a few treatments or less.
