Answers to Your Questions
What are my options for laser vein removal?
The Vbeam laser treatment is the preferred choice for correcting stubborn spider veins. The laser is so precise that the practitioner can select higher energy pulses to target specific areas.
What can I expect from my Vbeam treatment?
Ultra long pulses of energy are directed at the veins. You'll feel a gentle heating of the skin, but prior to each laser pulse, the laser's Dynamic Cooling Device™ applies a soothing protective spray to the targeted skin for ultimate comfort.
What is sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is an injection therapy and it is good for targeting larger spider veins.
How does sclerotherapy work?
Using a fine gauge syringe, a highly trained professional injects a sclerosing solution directly into the vein. Once the solution enters the vein, the vein immediately shrinks and begins to collapse. As the blood is rerouted through healthy veins, the collapsed vein is absorbed into surrounding tissue and dissolves over several weeks.
