The Problem with Leg Veins
There are different types of visible veins that can appear on the lower leg and thighs. Varicose veins are the bulging, flesh-colored vessels that typically protrude above the skin’s surface. Spider veins are networks of red and blue lines that often resemble a spider’s web. Spider veins can be caused by a variety of factors and are not usually characterized by uncomfortable symptoms. However, they can be a significant cosmetic nuisance, which is why many women (and men) seek treatment for these visible vessels.
Leg veins can be challenging to treat, due to the different depths of the vessels. At New Visage, we use the innovative Harmony system by Alma Lasers, which allows us to control the wavelength of laser energy during treatment to effectively eradicate all of spider veins at various depths in a single treatment session. Our providers are experienced with this device, ensuring you enjoy the best possible results from your procedure.
Laser vein treatment is considered a non-invasive procedure that does not require anesthesia. A handheld device delivers the laser energy beneath the skin’s surface to destroy the vessel without damaging surrounding skin and tissue. You will likely feel an electrical snap when the energy goes in, similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin. The procedure takes just a few minutes to complete, depending on the number of veins to be addressed.
There is no downtime after laser vein treatment, which means you can return to your regular activities as soon as your procedure is over. It is important to protect treated skin from direct sun exposure in the weeks following treatment to avoid possible skin discoloration. When you schedule your vein treatment during the winter months, it is much easier to keep treated skin under wraps until healing is complete.
Goodbye Leg Veins!
Laser therapy is a highly effective way to get rid of visible leg veins. In fact, you may even see the veins disappear as the treatment is administered. However, results will continue to improve in the days and weeks following treatment, as the damaged vessels are reabsorbed by the body and blood is rerouted to healthy veins nearby. If you schedule your treatment right after the holidays, your legs should be completely clear in time for spring.
Laser vein therapy is a popular way to clear up vein-plagued legs and enjoy a smoother, more youthful appearance. To learn more about this procedure, contact New Visage today at 252-808-2NEW.
