Laser Vein Removal

Vein Laser Therapy

Laser vein removal is one of the most popular treatments at Albany Laser. This includes removing broken capillaries and small veins, generally found on the face, or spider veins which are small-medium sized, typically found along the legs.We use Fotona or Elite pulse Nd-YAG laser to target the angioma and broken vein. Laser treatments typically last 10 to 15 minutes. In most cases, up to four treatments are required to remove the spider veins in the legs or on the face once and for all. There is minimal downtime so that you may resume your typical activities immediately following treatment.

How Laser Vein Removal Works

The laser targets hemoglobin, one of the blood components that gives blood its colour. The laser beam is focused on the veins using a small spot size, causing them to heat up to a certain clinical point. Therefore, bruising is common in laser-treated areas and can linger for many weeks. The epidermis is protected by a cooled air stream during the treatment to protect the surrounding skin.Other vascular flaws treated with the Nd-Yag laser at Albany Laser include:

  • Telangiectasia: These are thin red lines visible on the skin’s surface. These are most typically found near the nose and cheeks.
  • Cherry angiomas: are a collection of dilated capillaries that resemble elevated moles but are red or ruby.

Laser vein removal instructions

Don’t take Aspirin or other OTC blood-thinning drugs (like Vitamin E or Ginkgo Biloba) for one week before and one week after your treatment because they can make bleeding and bruising worse, even if you don’t take them at all. Do Not stop your medication If you are on a blood thinner prescription.We advise against drinking alcohol or smoking for two days before and two days after your treatment. Moreover, we ask our clients to avoid using lotions, oils, or self-tanners on their legs.Make sure not to come on an empty stomach; please eat something small or have a snack about 1.5 hours before your laser treatment. When reticular veins are treated, you should not fly for 48 hours. If you get sick before your appointment, you’ll have to reschedule.

If you suffer from vein problems, you may be looking for a way to improve your symptoms and appearance. Laser vein removal is an effective treatment option that can provide dramatic results.During laser vein treatment, a special light targets the problematic veins. The heat from the laser damages the vein, causing it to collapse and fade from view. In most cases, only one treatment is needed to achieve noticeable results. However, some people may need multiple treatments to achieve their desired results.

After treatment, cold (not frozen) packs should be used to cool the treatment site, reduce swelling, and ease the pain. If the temperature of the chemical cold packs is less than 4 degrees celsius, they should not be used. Frozen 4 x 4 gauze pads that have been wet with water and put in small plastic bags can be used. During the first three days after treatment, there should be no hot baths, no aerobic exercise, no massages, and no hot packs. Sunscreen with a high factor (30–50 SPF) should be used by patients at least one month after treatment. They should keep the treated area out of the sun for at least that long. Tanning after treatment sessions may speed up the growth of melanin, which could cause hyperpigmentation. Patients can apply makeup right away after treatment. However, if the treatment site starts to scale and cake, we tell the patient to stop. During this time, the skin may be more sensitive. Trying to remove makeup, especially if it’s hard to get off, could hurt the skin and make the area more vulnerable to infection.
