How is a laser treatment performed at Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery in Cape Girardeau?
Laser vein treatment is applied by delivering a beam of light energy in a series of brief pulses. The light energy from the laser heats the inside layer of the small vein and then zaps it. Finally, the heat causes the blood to clot within the vein and over a four- to six-week period to be reabsorbed by the body.
Depending on the size and number of spider veins, treatments usually last between 15 and 20 minutes.
What can I expect after the laser vein treatment?
After laser vein treatment, the appearance of existing veins will be diminished or completely eliminated. However, the development of new veins cannot be prevented. If your body has an underlying vascular problem, you may be prescribed additional treatments. Treatments are effective for most individuals, including those with darker or tanned skin.
Although most patients don’t find laser treatment uncomfortable, the patient may still feel a sense of heat. This can be eased by cooling the area. There are nominal side effects. The skin above the veins may look red and slightly irritated following the procedure, and, depending on the sensitivity of the patient’s skin, there may be some bruising. These side effects usually disappear in a day or two.
