Laser Vein Removal
As we age, many people experience weakened or damaged valves in the veins. These weak points can allow blood to “leak” and collect in the veins, creating an appearance of bulging, enlarged, or “spider-y” veins. Lift Aesthetics offers laser treatment for unsightly veins, helping you look and feel younger, and feel confident in your skin. Laser vein treatment can be used in a number of locations on the body, such as the legs and face.Laser treatment is an excellent, non-invasive way to help diminish unsightly veins. Using a laser means you can avoid cutting, surgery, and is a simple procedure with virtually no down time.
What is the Lumenis Stellar M22 Laser
Lumenis is one of the most reputed developers of laser vein treatment technology. The Lumenis M22 system uses the state-of-the-art dual-wavelength technology to provide a safe vein treatment solution.Multiple-Sequential Pulsing allows for cooling the skin in between pulses, while 3 SapphireCool™ lightguides ensure patient comfort through continuous contact cooling. The entire procedure is completely non-invasive and extremely effective!
Depending on the size and number of veins, multiple treatments are usually needed for ideal results. Normally, these treatments are done four to six weeks apart
During treatment, a small hand piece is placed on the surface of the skin. When your provider activates the laser, small light pulses are directed at specific veins. Small spider veins may only need a few pulses, while larger veins may require more.
Everybody’s pain tolerance is different. Some patients describe the laser feeling similar to a “ rubber band snap”and others feeling a slight tingling or stinging sensation. A topical numbing cream can be applied to maximize your comfort during treatment.
Blood vessels underneath the skin will gradually change from dark blue to light red, and eventually disappear in a few weeks.
