    What Vein Therapy does

    The laser we use to treat vein abnormalities delivers pulses of light energy which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel so it can be reabsorbed by your body.

    How to prepare for Vein Therapy

    To receive this treatment it is important that you discontinue antibiotics, topical prescriptions, and retinol 2 weeks prior and discontinue tanning, self-tanners, and any direct exposure to sun 4-6 weeks prior.

    What to expect during Vein Therapy

    This procedure can remove unsightly veins from all parts of the body. Small, facial veins (or telangiectasia) can be treated quickly without bruising or complication. Spider veins and large, blue leg veins can also be treated with excellent results. Knotty varicose veins are not good candidates for this treatment. A careful evaluation with your provider will help you determine which vessels can be treated and the best course of treatment. Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the hand piece. Patients generally resume most normal activities immediately, however, it is recommended that you avoid vigorous activities such as strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours after treatment. Often, patients find that 2 to 3 treatments are sufficient. However, the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, color, and the size of the vessels being treated. Since individual results vary, ask your provider about your specific condition.

    Postcare notes

    • Compression stockings (30-40 mm Hg pressure) are required to maintain optimal results. Wear them immediately following treatment for up to 2 weeks after. 
    • Avoid heat and exercising for 48 hours post-treatment.
    • Hot tubs and saunas should be avoided for 2 weeks following treatment to avoid venous dilation.
    • Avoid sun exposure for 1 week following treatment and continue to apply SPF 30 or above daily.
