In recent years, medical lasers have become significantly more advanced. Today, lasers are widely used for a broad range of non-invasive cosmetic treatments. Laser therapy is extremely safe and effective for treating leg veins as well as for veins that are visible on the face, neck, chest, and just about anywhere else.
Medical studies have documented exceptional results on veins with the Laser. It allows customized treatment of virtually every small vein disorder, including deep veins and veins that did not respond to other treatment methods.
What are Spider Veins?
Spider Veins are very small veins caused by a dilation of the small venules under the skin. This occurs when the pressure inside the vein increases enough to overcome normal resistance of the vein wall. The ability of veins to resist increased pressure is reduced in women when the body´s estrogen level is reduced.
What are reticular Veins?
Reticular Veins are small, bluish-colored veins that carry blood to the skin venules and are larger than spider veins. These veins have thin walls and dilate with excessive venous pressure. When this occurs, they become larger enough to be unsightly, but are not considered to be varicose veins.
What are Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins are veins that have become enlarged and twisted. The term commonly refers to the veins on the leg, although varicose veins occur elsewhere. Veins have leaflet valves to prevent blood from flowing backwards; commonly these valves are weak due to genetic reasons. Leg muscles pump the veins to return blood to the heart. Varicose veins are common in the superficial veins of the legs, which are subject to high pressure when standing. Besides cosmetic problems, varicose veins are often painful.
How many treatments are required?
The number of treatments necessary to resolve vein concerns depends largely on the type and size of the veins to be treated and the body´s ability to heal.
Vein problems are often hereditary and may reoccur periodically so it is important not to neglect the early signs of varicose veins, ulcer formation or even troublesome spider veins. Neglect and lack of treatment can lead to long-term disability. In case of varicose veins, the symptoms depend on the size and type of varicose veins in the legs. A feeling of heaviness in the legs is a common early symptom. Other symptom includes a feeling of fatigue in the leg muscles, aching in the legs, ankle swelling at the end of the day, skin discoloration, tenderness and soreness along the veins and night time leg cramps.
What to Expect After Treatment
You are likely to be able to return to your normal daily routine after simple laser treatment.
