Leg Vein Removal

leg-veins-removal

Telangiectasias are superficial veins which have become dilated. They mainly occur on the face and legs, but they can be found on other areas of the body. These thin veins are usually a purplish or bluish in colour and can be in either a linear, branched or spider-shaped pattern. On the legs they are often referred to as spider veins, and are often associated with burning or itching sensations. There are many causes of spider veins or other superficial veins including heredity, pregnancy, excess weight, aging, and sun-exposure.

Laser Genesis is now offering a treatment for these unsightly, uncomfortable veins. Leg Vein Clearance is now possible using Palomar’s Lux 1064 technology. 1064nm wavelength light beams from the laser work by targeting the hemoglobin within the vessel, producing heat. This heat cases the blood vessel walls to constrict, it will the shrink and fade from view.

Frequently asked questions?

Is this treatment safe for me?

Leg Vein Clearance is safe and effective for all skin colours and skin types. A red aiming beam helps to ensure absolute accuracy for safe treatment.

What should I expect following treatment?

Immediately following your treatment the vessel may darken, shrink or disappear. The skin surrounding the treatment area may turn pink and become slightly swollen for the following 24 hours.

How many treatments will I need?

While for some people one treatment is enough, it may require more than one treatment to achieve full clearance of your leg veins.

Will my treatment hurt?

The energy is delivered in a smooth, gentle pulse to protect you from a sharp rise in temperature; the hand piece has a cooled tip which is in contact with the skin to reduce the amount of heat felt from the laser. These smooth pulse delivery and active contact cooling allow for the most comfortable leg vein treatment available. Mild pain may be experienced, but it is not recommended to take pain relief medication without consulting your technician first.

Why should I use laser therapy instead of sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is am excellent treatment for leg vein clearance, but injections can be costly and painful. Laser treatment at Laser Genesis is needle-free, less painful and results in less bruising than sclerotherapy.

Is this treatment permanent?

Like many other leg vein removal procedures, the permanency of laser leg vein clearance cannot be guaranteed. Some individuals have what are called feeder veins which fork off of the main blood pathways and feed these smaller superficial veins. When this is the case, treatment of spider veins will clear them on a temporary basis but they will reform or refill as the feeder vein is still supplying blood to the area. Surgery is usually the only option for permanent treatment in these cases. Many individuals will, however, experience permanent leg vein clearance as a result of our laser treatments.
