Additional Facts

Who is a good candidate for Laser for Spider Veins?

- Overall healthy patients who desire treatment of spider veins, also known as telangiectasia

- Patients with varicose veins can benefit from surgery, sclerotherapy or endovenous LASER (EVLT)

What are Laser for Spider Veins contraindications?

We recommend avoiding the procedure in severe or uncontrolled systemic diseases, connective tissue disease, malignancy, unrealistic expectations, local skin pathology and pregnancy.

Note: A contraindication is a condition or factor that serves as a reason to withhold a certain medical treatment due to the harm that it would cause the patient.

How is this procedure performed?

- Local tumescence anesthesia is infiltrated into the treatment area

- The LASER probe is introduced into the target vein

- LASER produces heat causing collapse and obliteration of the veins which eventually fade away.

- Multiple treatments might be needed.

How long does the effect last?

The effect is expected to be permanent, however new veins can develop.

What should I expect during recovery?

- Recovery is fast after EVLT.

- Some redness, skin sensitivity and swelling can occur during recovery which last for a few hours to a few days.

- Avoid sun exposure and hot showers.

- Skin moisturizers are commonly used after EVLT.

Where is the scar?

There are no incisions or scars. However scarring is an uncommon complication that can occur after the procedure.

Laser and Injectables - Should have done it sooner!

This was my first experience with any type of injectables/laser treatments. I felt at ease with the physican and staff. They were very friendly and made me feel welcome. The gave me a tour of their facility, which was very clean, modern. I am no longer a botox virgin! My frown line has diminished, little by little, each day! I also had laser treatments for my eyes and for a vericose vein on my thigh. You wouldn't believe the results after just one treatment! I wish I had the pictures to share with you. Anyway, I highly recommend this establishment...why wait...make an appointment now! I wish I would have made my sooner!
