Prominent leg veins are a widespread source of embarrassment. While not life-threatening, they may force you to ‘cover up’ and deny yourself the pleasures of outdoor activity, warm weather and light, free clothing.
Laser treatment effectively causes leg veins to fade and disappear. With few, if any side effects, and no downtime, this in-office procedure is
non-invasive and effective.

What type of veins can be treated with a laser?
A variety of leg veins, ranging from the most superficial to deeper blood vessels respond well to laser therapy. Candidates for this therapy include spider veins, very small veins caused by a dilation of the minute vessels that sit near the skin’s surface, and reticular veins, the small, bluish coloured veins that carry blood to the skin’s tiny vessels.
What to expect?
Treatment may vary from 15-30 minutes. Multiple treatments spanning several months may be necessary, but the exact number of treatments depends on the size of the vein and your body’s ability to heal. During your consultation, you we will estimate the number of treatments required to obtain optimal results. The laser cause no actual damage to the overlying skin.. however temporary bruising and darkening of the skin may result and will disappear in several days or weeks. Fading is generally excellent, but it may take several months to see final results.
Does it hurt?
Most people tolerate laser treatment well, and describe the sensation as a rubber band snap to the skin. The majority of patients require no anesthesia, through topical anesthetic is an option for more sensitive areas.
