Discover the benefits of Sclerotherapy & NDYAG LaserBoth men and women suffer from unsightly leg veins which can be treated with the NDYAG Laser, Sclerotherapy or a combination of both.
Spider veins which are small, dilated, superficial veins on the legs are a common problem, particularly in women after pregnancy. These unwanted blood vessels often occur as an inherited tendency, or may be part of the aging process.
Large varicose veins are most often treated surgically. But certain small superficial veins, called telangiectasias, are best treated with Sclerotherapy or Laser.
How is the procedure performed?
During a Sclerotherapy laser leg vein treatment, larger veins are usually treated first. A sclerosing solution is injected into the vein with a micro-needle. The solution causes the vein to turn white and then gradually disappear.
How long does a treatment take?
A typical laser leg vein treatment lasts from 30 – 60 minutes. Approximately 3-4 treatments are generally required for optimal results. Micropore is placed securely onto each injection site immediately after treatment and patients will be asked to ensure that legs remain elevated for the evening. No excessive exercise is permitted for 24 hours post treatment.
What results can I expect?
A noticeable improvement can be observed after several treatments. It is important to note “touch-up” treatments may be required from time to time as new spider veins appear.
