What Is Laser Vein Treatment?
The GentleMax Pro® system delivers an effective and minimally invasive laser treatment to eradicate unsightly spider veins and varicose veins. The Candela GentleMax Pro® laser offers safer, faster, and more effective treatment than other equipment on the market, and it can provide patients with smoother, more youthful-looking skin in no time.
Sclerotherapy is another option for treating varicose veins. This involves injecting an irritating solution into the vein or lymph vessel, which causes it to swell, cutting off the flow of blood or lymphatic fluid and shrinking the vessel.
How Much Does Laser Vein Treatment Cost?
The cost of your treatment depends on several factors, including the type of treatment most appropriate for your varicose or spider veins and the number of sessions you need. To find out your individual cost, please contact us to schedule a consultation for a tailored treatment plan.
What Are the Benefits of Laser Vein Treatment?
There are several important benefits that come with laser vein therapy. For a start, the procedure is non-invasive and involves very little discomfort. It can be completed in only a few minutes with no anesthesia necessary. You won't need to worry about post-procedural scarring and there will there no need for stitches.
Laser vein treatment also requires little to no downtime. You can return to your normal daily activities the same day. At the worst, some areas may require compression stockings after treatment, and it’s wise to try and protect the treated areas from the sun for a few days.
Most patients will find laser vein treatment to be highly effective, with nearly any skin type and any size of vein responding well to the treatment.
In addition to treating veins, the laser treatment can also treat some of the following issues:
Age Spot Removal
Age spots that develop on the skin over the years can also be treated with the same GentleMax Pro® laser vein treatment. In this case, the laser targets the discolored pigment in the skin (whether it's on the face, the scalp, the hands, or anywhere else), causing it to break down and fade away.
Brown Spot Removal
As with the treatment of age spots, the GentleMax Pro® can treat brown spots anywhere on the body by targeting the brown pigment and breaking it down.
Sun Damage Treatment
The GentleMax Pro® can also treat sun damaged-skin of the face, neck, chest, arms, or legs without downtime or invasive treatment. Several treatments may be required depending upon the extent of the damage; however, just a single session can result in significant improvement.
Is Laser Vein Treatment Permanent?
While any treated veins should be gone for good, laser vein treatment will not prevent any new spider or varicose veins from developing over time. If new veins do begin to develop, it could be signs that there are some other underlying vein issues, such as varicose veins or venous insufficiency.
