HOW DOES VEIN REMOVAL WORK?
YOUR VEIN REMOVAL PROCEDURE
Prior to your Vein Removal Session, your Practitioner will recommend a pre-treatment which allows us to clean, prepare and numb the skin for your procedure. Laser therapy for vein removal can last anywhere from 15 minutes to over 30 minutes per session. During your procedure, a laser will target individual veins and send pulses of energy that will heat and eventually collapse the vein. You may feel a heating sensation.
BEFORE YOUR VEIN REMOVAL TREATMENT
YOUR RECOVERY & RESULTS
You can resume your normal activities immediately after your laser therapy session, avoid strenuous exercise for 5 to 7 days after your treatment. If you feel soreness in the treated area, you can apply cold compresses until the discomfort fades. Compression stockings can help speed up your recovery and results by increasing blood circulation, in the case of laser therapy of the legs. You should also stay out of the sun and avoid hot showers, hot tubs and saunas for at least 1 week after treatment.
Over the following weeks, the treated veins may become temporarily darker as a result of their collapse. This is a normal part of vein therapy. They also may stiffen up and cause momentary soreness. Eventually, the vein should fade from view, leaving your skin clear. Most people require two to five sessions to achieve their desired results, spaced about 4 to 6 weeks apart.
