Leg Veins

What are the benefits of laser treatment of leg veins?

Small purple or red veins on the legs can be treated by injection (sclerotherapy) or laser treatment. We offer laser treatment as an effective and non-invasive way to target the blood inside the unwanted veins and makes these veins disappear.  

What should I expect during the laser procedure?

During the treatment, the cooled sapphire lens protects the surface of the skin while the laser fires through to reach the blood vessel. Vessels respond immediately, though there may be residual blood in the damaged vein. The body will resorb the vein over three to six weeks. Occasionally, multiple treatments are necessary to treat large areas.

What laser do you use and where can I learn more?

We use Sciton’s ClearScan Nd:YAG laser for vein removal. To learn more and see before-after photos: https://sciton.com/patients/clearscan-yag/
