Spider veins or varicose veins can affect your appearance and confidence and/or they can be itchy, swollen, painful, and uncomfortable. If you have veins that are either uncomfortable or that you do not like the appearance of, you may be looking for vein treatment options. One of the best options available today is laser vein treatment. Read on to learn more about this vein removal option and whether it may be right for you.
How Does the Treatment Work?
Laser vein treatment works by shining a laser directly on the affected veins. The high-intensity rays of light from the laser penetrate the skin without piercing the skin, hitting the veins. As the light hits the veins, they start to collapse, which ultimately kills them. They will slowly start to disappear. Laser vein therapy usually requires multiple treatments to fully treat and remove all of the veins, especially if you have large veins or are trying to kill a vein that is feeding multiple smaller veins.
Who Should Consider Laser Vein Treatment?
Laser vein treatment is ideal for those who are looking to remove spider veins and varicose veins for both cosmetic and comfort reasons. This treatment is safer and less invasive than surgical vein removal, so this is a great option for those who may not be a candidate for a surgical procedure or want a less invasive vein removal option.
How Long Until You See Results From the Treatment?
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, it can take one to three months for larger veins or dark varicose veins to disappear, while smaller or light veins may disappear immediately after treatment. It is also important to note that you may need multiple treatments to fully remove larger veins. This process is longer than surgical vein removal.
If you have veins that are making you self-conscious about your appearance, or you have varicose or spider veins that are causing you discomfort, laser vein therapy may be a great way to get rid of the vein.
