Get rid of spider-veins with laser vein treatment.
Many of our patients complain about the look of spider veins, especially when the temperatures start to warm up. Clarity Medical Spa is pleased to offer effective laser treatments for patients in the New Haven area and in surrounding areas to diminish the appearance of spider veins. The best candidates for laser vein treatment and sclerotherapy are those that complain of small broken capillaries, cherry angiomas or small spider veins found anywhere on the face or body.
How it works:
Laser vein treatment uses a laser beam that targets the unsightly vein. The energy causes the blood to coagulate and heats the walls of the vein causing it to seal itself off and collapse. The blood that previously flowed through the vein is redirected to other healthy veins.
What to expect:
Before your laser vein treatment, you will be asked to stop photosensitive medications, retinols or acid type medications and creams one week prior to your treatment. Before your laser vein treatment appointment, Kati Midgley, PA-C will thoroughly assess your complete vascular health. If your veins are deemed appropriate to be treated by a laser, then your skin will be cleaned and prepped for the procedure. The laser’s parameters are very precise and are able to treat all skin types with little risk of damaging the overlying skin. There are risks to every procedure, that’s why Clarity’s medical staff will thoroughly assess your veins and direct you toward the appropriate treatment modality.
Though there may be some discomfort, the laser contains a cooling device to minimize the soreness. This treatment is frequently used in conjunction with other treatment modalities, such as sclerotherapy, to achieve optimal results.
After your treatment:
Temporary bruising and darkening of the skin may result and will disappear in several days or weeks. It usually takes two to six weeks before a response is seen and it may take several months to see final results. More than one treatment is generally needed depending on the size of the vessels being treated.
