Laser Varicose Vein Treatment

Even skin in texture and color is a sign of youth and beauty. Spider veins can have a negative impact on otherwise toned and beautiful skin. These veins and blood vessels become raised closer to the surface of your skin and can start to leave a blue, red, pink or purple formation in various areas of your skin like the legs, face or arms.
There are many factors which can increase your risk to get spider veins such as family history, aging, pregnancy, a lack of movement or maintaining the same standing posture too long.

 

Our laser spider vein treatment at Montreal International Clinic is an FDA approved laser treatment that will help you safely and immediately make your spider veins disappear and return your skin to its natural, even tone. Laser vein treatment is the most effective methods for treating spider vein problems. This painless, 15 minute treatment uses a laser that penetrates deep into the skin and activates the vein or blood vessel allowing it to shrink back to its normal size. As it shrinks the vein visibly disappears in seconds.

Our laser technician will insert the parameters of the laser machine based on your skin type and size of vein to be treated. The laser then shoots pulses focused only on the vein area and causes it to atrophy and disappear. While the vein may reappear again in the future, most patients do not have a recurring issue and a second treatment can be done in the cases where the vein reappears. The treatment is quick and the results are visible immediately in most cases with the vein disappearing directly after treatment.
