About Laser Vein Treatment

Spider veins, port wine stains, and other forms of vascular lesions on the face and legs can cause significant self-consciousness and social anxiety. Laser vein treatment is a simple, in-office, non-invasive procedure wherein light energy is used to make them shrink and fade away from the skin’s surface. We perform laser vein treatment using the cutting-edge Vasculaze by Inmode, which treats a wide range of vascular lesions with optimal comfort and no downtime.

How does laser vein treatment work?

Spider veins and vascular lesions usually occur because of excessive blood trapped within them, making them appear prominently on the skin’s surface. Laser vein treatment involves channeling highly calibrated light energy to heat up the damaged blood vessels, making them eventually shrink and dissolve. Once the damaged blood vessels are destroyed, the accumulated blood reroutes into healthier veins. Most patients need a series of 2 to 4 sessions for optimal results.

Vasculaze for laser vein treatment

Vasculaze by Inmode is the safest and most advanced device for laser vein treatment. It’s optimized to attack the hemoglobin and remove the damaged blood vessels, restoring optimal blood circulation. It has a strong contact cooling feature that ensures complete comfort during the procedure. Furthermore, it can be adjusted according to your unique skin quality and color to prevent harsh side effects.

What happens during laser vein treatment?

The cosmetic provider will cleanse the treatment areas and apply a numbing gel to ensure comfort. The treatment areas with the unwanted veins will be marked to guide the device. The Vasculaze device will be moved over the treatment areas to deliver light energy, which is absorbed by the hemoglobin in the damaged blood vessels. The procedure concludes within 15 to 30 minutes.

Does laser vein treatment hurt?

No. Laser vein treatment doesn’t hurt or cause any discomfort. You may feel a warm sensation as the light energy enters your skin, but it’s a tolerable sensation. We use numbing gel to ensure optimal comfort, and the Vasculaze device features a contact cooling system for even greater comfort.

Is there any downtime after laser vein treatment?

Laser vein treatment doesn’t involve downtime. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately after the procedure.
