If you’re looking for a way to improve the appearance of your skin, you may want to consider laser vascular treatment. This type of treatment can help to reduce the appearance of spider veins, as well as other types of vessels that may be visible on the skin’s surface. Read on to learn more about this revolutionary approach to skin care.
What is Vascular Treatment?
Laser vascular treatment is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgery for treating spider and varicose veins. The procedure uses a laser to heat and damage the vein, causing it to collapse and close off. Blood flow is then redirected to healthier veins.
Laser vascular treatment is generally safe and effective, with most patients seeing significant improvement after just one or two treatments.
Advanced Laser Technology
There are different types of lasers that can be used for this purpose, and your doctor will select the one that is best suited for your particular case.
The most common type of laser used for vascular treatment is called a long-pulsed YAG laser. This type of laser uses high-energy pulses to target and destroy the vessels. The pulses are very brief, and they only affect the area that is being treated. This makes long-pulsed YAG laser vascular treatment a very safe and effective option.
Another type of laser that can be used for vascular treatment is called a pulsed dye laser. This type of laser uses lower-energy pulses to target and destroy the vessels. Pulsed dye lasers are often used to treat smaller areas, such as the face or neck.
What Conditions Does Laser Vascular Treatment Address?
Laser vascular treatment can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including:
- Spider veins
- Facial redness
- Port-wine stains
- Leg veins
- Venous lakes
- Cherry angiomas
What to Expect with Vascular Treatment
During your treatment session, you will be asked to wear protective eyewear to protect your eyes from the laser light. You will also be given a local anesthetic to help keep you comfortable during the procedure.
Most people who undergo laser vascular treatment experience very little discomfort. Some people may experience minor side effects, such as redness, swelling, or bruising. These side effects are usually temporary and will resolve on their own within a few days.
Laser vascular treatment is usually performed on an outpatient basis, which means that you can go home the same day as your procedure. The procedure itself is relatively quick, and most people only need one or two treatments to see results. Recovery time is also short, and most people can return to their normal activities within a few days.
