Leg Veins

Laserscope laser treatments can help your legs look their most beautiful.

  • No downtime – Immediately return to normal activities.
  • Effective – Most veins will disappear immediately.
  • Safe – Fewer side effects than alternatives.
  • Quick – In and out in under an hour.

How do the treatments work?

Laser light is delivered through the skin and into the vein. After heating, the vein walls collapse and seal shut. The sealed vein is then broken down and absorbed by the body.

What can I expect during treatment?

A thin layer of gel will be applied to the skin. The laser handpiece will be directed over the subject vein, which will, in many cases, disappear after a single pass.

Is the treatment painful?

Discomfort varies depending on the size and location of the vein. Many describe each laser pulse as feeling like the snap of a rubber band against the skin. As there can be moderate discomfort, your physician may offer an anesthetic gel to help reduce the pain.

What can I expect following the treatment?

In come cases the treated region will be slightly swollen and tender to the touch for a day or two. A read mark, resembling a “cat scratch”, can sometimes persist for a few weeks. After treatment you may be asked to avoid heavy exercise and wear sunscreen. Your physician will provide more detailed instructions following treatment.
