What are the benefits of laser vein therapy?

If you are looking for a simple yet effective treatment for your spider veins, laser vein therapy is an excellent choice, because it can dramatically improve the appearance of your veins.  But what exactly are the benefits of laser vein therapy.

What is laser vein therapy?

Laser vein therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that uses laser technology to seal off damaged veins.  The procedure is most effective for spider veins near the surface of the skin, but can also be used to treat small varicose veins and broken capillaries triggered by rosacea.   There are different laser devices available for vein treatment. 

How does laser vein therapy work?

The laser emits pulses of energy that heat and damage the vein, causing it to collapse and close.  The treated vein is reabsorbed by the body over time.   Laser vein therapy is a very safe treatment with few risks. 

How many treatments do I need?

It typically takes 2-3 sessions to see results with laser vein therapy.

Benefits of laser vein therapy

  • Minimally invasive

Laser vein therapy is a minimally invasive treatment, so there is virtually no discomfort during the procedure.  In addition, the laser energy closes the abnormal vein without harming the surrounding skin and tissue.

  • Short treatment time

Laser vein therapy takes 30 minutes on average, so it can easily fit into any busy schedule. 

  • No downtime

There is typically no downtime after laser vein therapy, so most patients are able to resume regular activities immediately after treatment.
