In Dermatech Laser Clinic, Laser vascular therapy offers a nonsurgical solution for removing spider and reticular leg veins in less than 30 minutes with results that are long lasting. More importantly, it is an alternative to surgical leg vein removal, which leaves no incision scars and does not require lengthy recovery.
The laser hand-piece will deliver light energy into your skin and will be absorbed by the blood within the vein being targeted while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. Once the blood absorbs this energy, the vein will heat up and it will affect the vessel lining. Thus causing the vessel to constrict and eventually fade from view leaving your legs looking clear and as beautiful as ever.
We use a state-of-the-art laser device for our leg vein treatments – Cynosure’s® Elite MPXTM. The Elite MPXTM encompasses two proven Gold Standard laser wavelengths, Nd Yag and Alexandrite, that provide an array of laser treatments. Treatments with this system are fast, effective, comfortable, and safe.
With spot sizes up to 24mm, the Elite MPXTM laser provides fast treatments, allowing you to resume your normal activities as quickly as possible.
The Elite MPXTM uses a proven 1064nm wavelength for effective treatment of leg veins in just a few sessions. In addition, the Elite MPXTM uses an advanced, exclusive technology called “Multiplexing.” Multiplexing mixes the two lasers together, providing a more effective treatment and thus, better clinical results.
The Elite MPXTM has a built in air cooling system to provide continuous skin cooling during the treatment making it an extremely tolerable experience.
The Elite MPXTM system has been in clinical use for many years and has been proven safe in many clinical publications.
Before your Elite MPXTM leg vein treatment, the laser specialist will typically apply a gel to the area being treated. This will help ensure the laser energy is delivered appropriately and will help cool the area during and after the treatment. The provider will begin the treatment by moving the laser handpiece over your skin, following the length of the vein and pulsing the energy as they go. You will be provided safety goggles before the treatment to protect your eyes but you may still see flashes of light as the laser energy is being delivered to your skin. You will also feel a mild sensation and heat on the skin during the treatment but the air cooling should help with any discomfort.
The vessels may undergo immediate graying or blanching, or they may exhibit a slight purple or red color change. The vessels will fully or partially fade in about ten to fourteen days.
