Laser leg vein removal 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 handpiece 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.
