What are Vein Treatments?
Lasers have become an essential tool for physicians to treat vascular lesions which are described as collections of vessels that become visible directly underneath the skin and can be found around the nose, cheeks, and mouth, on the neck and legs. Vascular lesions often become more visible as we age, and they can get in the way of revealing smooth legs or clear skin on your face. Javan is here to help you treat these small imperfections with our FDA approved, top-notch lasers that can make these imperfections disappear in 1-3 treatments.
How does it work?
After a thorough consultation to discuss the desired areas to be treated and the most realistic expectations with an appropriate wavelength and pulse duration, the laser energy selectively targets hemoglobin and blood pigments within blood vessels without damaging the surrounding tissue. The heat produced by the laser causes the blood within the veins to coagulate and the vein collapses. The procedure usually takes 15 to 30 minutes depending on the area being treated. Bruising is not uncommon after laser vein treatment and should be gone after a few weeks. The use of support socks to constrict the treated area may be advised for about a month after the treatment.
What results can I expect?
The Gentle Max Pro Laser Vein Treatment can help to reduce the appearance of redness, severity and size of both broken capillaries and leg veins. In order to maximize the effectiveness of the spider vein removal, multiple treatments are often suggested, but patients may be surprised at how effective the result of just one treatment can be.
Keep in mind that the results of laser treatment for spider veins are not immediate. After the laser therapy, the vessels underneath the skin will gradually change from a dark blue to light red color, then eventually disappearing in two to six weeks.
