If it is determined that you are a candidate for spider vein laser treatment, a plan will be developed and discussed based on your needs and desired outcome.
Like with the laser hair treatments, the laser is placed over the top of the vein and the heat from the laser constricts the blood vessel. The vein will start to shrink and eventually dissolve. The cooling tip and cool air helps to make the treatment comfortable for the patient.
Yes, a consultation is necessary to make sure you are a candidate for laser vein treatment. We will review your situation to determine if you are a candidate for a safe, successful therapy. We will also review the pre-treatment instructions and post-treatment care. All patients are required to complete a consultation before treatments begin. Remember, laser vein treatment consultations are free!
The veins we treat are the small veins commonly referred to as “spider veins.” We do not treat varicose veins. See the examples below.
We recommend three treatment sessions to receive the best results.
Prices vary based on the patient’s current vein condition, area of treatment and the desired outcome. Through our free consultation, we will discuss treatment options and the pricing will be tailored for each patient.
We do not recommended laser vein treatment if your skin is tanned. When the skin is tanned there is a higher risk of irritation and potential damage.
For laser vein treatments, you are not required to shave. Shaving prior to the treatment is a personal preference. Feel free to shave the area we are treating.
While discomfort is minimal, some say the laser vein treatment feels like a quick rubber band snap or a quick pinch. With our Splendor- X laser technology, there is a chill tip and cool air that is constantly blowing to help counteract the sensation. You may experience some mild, temporary discomfort.
The length of the laser vein treatment will depend on your treatment plan and the size of area to be treated. Treatment sessions typically last between 15 minutes to an hour.
After your laser vein treatment has concluded, you may experience some redness or swelling. This is normal and due to the fact that the veins have been treated with a laser. Rest assured, the laser vein treatment does not damage the skin. Any discomfort you may feel usually subsides within 24 to 48 hours. If discomfort last longer than 48 hours, you will be advised to directly contact our laser services office at 208-552-6909 or our main number at 208-557-2900.
