Does it hurt?
You may feel a short burst of heat as the light targets the veins, some people describe the sensation as a tingling or a slight pinching sensation. All our lasers are accompanied by a cooling system that makes the treatment comfortable and pain-free!
What can I expect after treatment?
The treated area will be red and slightly raised or swollen directly after treatment. An ice pack applied to the affected area will help soothe and calm the swelling. Side effects generally subside within a few days after treatment, however, on rare occasions, the skin may look slightly bruised and veins look darker for up to a few weeks. Sometimes, results can be seen after your first treatment where some veins may disappear on the spot. Other times, it may take a few treatments to achieve the desired results.
How do I stop spider veins from forming?
Generally, there is not much that can be done in order to prevent spider veins and there are many environmental and genetic factors that can cause them. Nothing has been medically developed in order to prevent the formation of spider veins, however wearing special support stockings can help, as well as minimising the use of high heel shoes. Sometimes diet and exercise can help to reduce the likelihood of spider veins forming as well.
Can varicose veins be treated?
No, varicose veins are much thicker and larger than spider veins and cannot be treated by laser technology at all. Spider veins are definitely effectively treated with this laser; however varicose veins require another process called sclerotherapy. This is a slightly more invasive procedure where medication needs to be injected directly into the varicose vein.
