Frequently Asked Questions


Does Laser Vein Removal Hurt?

While you may feel a slight finding sensation, most people tolerate the procedure very well. Because some areas of the body are more sensitive than others, you may choose to have a topical anesthetic applied to increase comfort during the procedure.

How Long Does A Treatment Take?

Most areas take about 10 to 20 minutes. If the area treated is very large, of course treatment may take longer. Multiple treatments are generally required.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

This varies. Some veins and lesions will completely clear after one or two treatments, while others may require three treatments or more. Our physician will develop a treatment program that best fulfills your individual needs.

What Happens After The Procedure?

Most people will experience some slight swelling and redness for a few hours after treatment; other after-effects are rare. Veins or lesions may disappear immediately, fade gradually over two to six weeks, or require additional treatments. Results depend on the vessels treated, their location, your individual skin type, and the laser settings selected by the physician.

How Will The Treatment Affect My Circulation?

Spider veins and most other vascular lesions that develop near the skin's surface are nonfunctional. By the time they develop, other veins nearby will have assumed any necessary functions. Removing non-functional veins and lesions does not inhabit circulation.
