Unsightly leg veins are an embarrassment to millions of women, causing them to cover their legs in shame.
No more shorts, no more skirts, no more bathing suits. Wouldn’t you like to be able to bare your legs again? Well, with laser leg vein therapy, you can.
At Skinzone Medical, we use a combination of laser and injection therapy (sclerotherapy) to achieve excellent results for our patients who suffer from spider, reticular, or varicose veins.
Highly controlled flashes of laser light are selectively absorbed by hemoglobin found in red blood cells in the veins. The absorbed light heats the hemoglobin, causing the blood to clot. The vein then collapses and is slowly removed by the body’s natural filtering systems. Because the laser light is not absorbed by the skin around the veins, there are no scarring or visible marks left by the laser
Some immediate improvement is typically visible, but most leg veins need multiple treatments over a period of time before the effect is complete. Generally, you can expect at least three sessions to achieve the appearance you desire.
Considered the gold standard for eliminating spider veins, sclerotherapy is a relatively painless in-office treatment.
FDA approved medication is injected into the spider vein using a microfine needle. The solution washes over the tiny cells, which line the inner wall of blood vessels, dries them out, and causes them to shrink. Within a few weeks, the blood vessels fade away. The work of carrying the blood is shifted to other healthy blood vessels nearby, consequently improving circulation.
Sclerotherapy can be performed in conjunction with laser treatment to maximize the clearing of the veins and to minimize the side effects.
