What are other methods of treating spider veins? 2017-08-23T07:39:52+00:00
  • Sclerotherapy: This procedure involves the injection of a liquid or foam chemical directly into the vein with a small needle. The chemical, called a sclerosant, irritates the veins and causes it to collapse. Over time, the vein turns into scar tissue that fades away. The procedure is usually done in a clinic, is relatively inexpensive, and has little downtime. Most individuals require a couple of sessions to treat all the spider veins. Side effects of sclerotherapymay include slight swelling, bruising, and redness and itching at injection sites. If the solution leaks out of the vein, pain and darkening of the skin occurs.
  • Surgical ligation/stripping: Spider veins are almost never treated with surgery. Surgery is only reserved for the large varicose veins.
How long does it take for the results to become evident? 2017-08-23T07:39:38+00:00

The results of laser treatment for spider veins are not immediate. After the laser therapy, the vessels underneath the skin will gradually change from a dark blue to light red colour, then eventually disappearing in two to six weeks.

Most patients report a high degree of satisfaction with the procedure and relief at no longer having to hide unsightly veins. The treated areas are noticeably clearer and in most cases the skin continues to improve with each successive treatment.

The majority of spider veins will disappear within two to four weeks, and in some cases even longer.

When can you go back to work after laser therapy? 2017-08-23T07:39:22+00:00

Patients are encouraged to resume all normal activities immediately. Final results may not be apparent for several months. Most patients are satisfied by the results in a very short time.

Are there any precautions after laser therapy? 2017-08-23T07:39:08+00:00

After laser therapy, it is strongly recommended that one keep away from the sun. Healing can be facilitated by wearing compression stockings and using our aftercare gel. The pain is minimal and one may take any over the counter pain medications. After treatment, there is no downtime. You can resume all of your normal activities immediately afterward.

What to expect after laser therapy? 2017-08-23T07:38:59+00:00

Soon after the procedure, you may feel a slight bump on the skin; it should disappear hours after treatment. The area may also appear slightly redder and occasionally may be bruised.

What is the cost of spider vein removal with laser? 2017-08-23T07:38:34+00:00

Spider veins are only of cosmetic nuisance and not covered by medical insurance or Medicare. The average cost for laser therapy may vary from $140 – $500 per session.

Is laser treatment for spider veins curative? 2017-08-23T07:38:17+00:00

There is no cure for spider veins. Although treatment does not prevent the development of new spider veins, the removal of existing veins can dramatically improve the appearance of the affected area, providing a more youthful, healthy look and an even color pattern to the skin. Spider veins can be recurrent and thus, more treatments will be required in the future.

How many treatments are needed? 2017-08-23T07:38:07+00:00

Depending on the size and number of veins, two to six treatments will be needed. The treatments are usually done 4-6 weeks apart. Those with a tendency towards vascular problems will most likely require additional treatments.

What are potential complications of laser therapy? 2017-08-23T07:37:54+00:00

The risks associated with laser vein therapy are minimal. Your eyes will be shielded during the treatments. Laser Sydney use state-of-the-art cooling systems, thus the treatments are low risk and relatively pain-free.

What are side effects of laser therapy? 2017-08-23T07:37:43+00:00

The skin above the veins will have a reddish, cat-scratch appearance. This generally disappears over the next two days.

What is the time between treatments? 2017-08-23T07:37:32+00:00

It is generally recommended that the treatments be spaced four to six weeks apart. If new veins appear, additional treatments are required for optimum results.

 

How do I know if I am a candidate for laser vein treatment? 2017-08-23T07:37:18+00:00

All individuals are evaluated prior to laser therapy. Spider veins do not cause symptoms and are of a cosmetic concern only. For those who have symptoms, further investigation is done to ensure that they do not have varicose veins.

What preparations should I take before treatment? 2017-08-23T07:37:08+00:00

There are no major preparations required before the laser treatment, but you will want to avoid sun exposure, aspirin and alcohol for at least a week prior to the procedure.

As for the day of treatment, avoid all creams, lotions and moisturizers on the area that is going to be treated. Also, wear comfortable clothing that allows easy access to the body part(s) being treated.

Is Laser therapy painful? 2017-08-23T07:36:53+00:00

As mentioned, a slight elastic band sensation may be felt during treatment, however, you may feel a slight tingling sensation as the laser fires. Laser Sydney’s lasers have a cooling system that prevents the tip of the laser from getting too hot and resulting in burns or damage to the area.

How does the Laser work? 2017-08-23T07:36:40+00:00

The Nd: YAG modality of the Candela GentleMAX PRO pierces the skin and penetrates the superficial blood vessel. The heat generated from the laser coagulates the blood inside the vessel, causing it to collapse and seal. Over the next few weeks, the vessel will disappear and all the blood will be removed by the body’s scavenging cells. Laser Sydney’s laser treatments allow the delivery of a precise dosage of energy to each blood vessel without injuring any nearby structures.

What happens during laser therapy? 2017-08-23T07:36:17+00:00

Laser vein treatment, usually takes less than an hour. The procedure uses a focused beam of light to target the vein that is selected for treatment, and because the beam is focused it is careful not to affect nearby skin, tissue and veins. As the laser heats up the vein is destroyed, then, over a period of four to six weeks, the vein is reabsorbed by the body and disappears.
