Chronic venous disorders of the upper and lower extremities are a common nuisance for a significant portion of the adult population. If you would like to get unsightly veins removed, consider laser vein removal in Canton and Watertown at UniQ Laser Center.
Web-like varicose veins, also known as spider veins, are caused by venous hypertension, which is commonly the result of reflux in one or more veins and their primary tributaries. In other words, blood that travels through these veins can become backed up and begin to pool. Varicose veins typically don’t pose any serious health problems, but they can at times be painful.
At our practice, we offer our patients the most sophisticated equipment on the market, like the Candela GentleMax Pro Laser, to provide effective, minimally invasive laser vein treatment for anyone looking to eliminate unwanted spider veins. With great attention to detail, we approach each patient as a unique individual. Laser vein treatment with the Candela GentleMax Pro can be customized to address every vein type and is also versatile enough to be effective on nearly any area of the body.
During the initial consultation, patients will be encouraged to describe their goals and concerns. Once an examination is complete, a final diagnosis can be made and a treatment plan can be established. The initial consultation also provides each patient with an opportunity to address any questions about the laser treatment they may have. Our team of professionals is more than happy to discuss in great detail every aspect of our process.
During the procedure, the laser will heat up the targeted veins, causing them to shrink. The treatment itself is not painful and usually takes less than an hour for one session.
Though spider vein removal is a non-invasive laser procedure, there are still some important things patients should be mindful of with regard to the recovery process. Healing is a personal progression that will change from patient to patient. However, there are still some basic expectations when it comes to recovery.
Bruising is not uncommon after laser vein treatment and should be gone after a few weeks. The use of support socks to constrict the treated area may be advised for about a month after the treatment. Prolonged standing or sitting is generally not a good idea and is even more so after treatment. When possible, doing either of these for too long should be avoided.
Expect the treated vein clusters to be noticeably lighter within a month.
In order to maximize the effectiveness of the spider vein removal, multiple treatments are often suggested.
Spider vein removal generally incorporates a low-impact recovery period that shouldn’t inhibit or inconvenience the patient’s daily life in any significant way, making this treatment incredibly convenient while also equally as effective.
Keep in mind that spider veins and varicose veins will only get worse over time. The earlier you can eliminate the problem with laser vein treatment, the better off you’ll be down the road.
