Are you feeling ready to do something about the blueish purple veins that have appeared on your legs? If you are looking into your options, you are probably wondering how long it takes to recover from leg vein removal. The answer is that it depends on what kind of treatment you have. At Le Reve Skincare & Laser Center in Fort Worth, TX, we recommend non-invasive laser treatments because they require zero down time while delivering incredible results.
Your Options for Leg Vein Removal
There are several different kinds of leg veins including spider veins, varicose veins, and reticular veins. There are also several different approaches to getting rid of them. These range from surgical procedures to endovenous treatments performed with a catheter that is inserted into the vein. We offer our patients non-invasive laser treatments with the Icon Aesthetic System because it delivers incredible results without discomfort or a lengthy recovery period.
How Long Does It Take To Recover?
When you choose leg vein removal with us, you can expect to be back on your feet immediately after your appointment. The appointment itself only takes 30 minutes. That means you can get back to work or play or whatever else you have planned for your day without arranging for a ride or taking time off.
How Do Laser Leg Vein Removal Treatments Work?
It’s hard to believe it, but today’s advanced laser technology allow us to get rid of your spider veins by using light energy. Our treatments are effective against these types of veins:
- Spider veins
- Varicose veins
- Reticular veins
By focusing the laser on the veins you want treated, we can help your body clear out the damaged channels safely and effectively. Here is some more detail about the process:
Why the Veins Appear
You remember a time before you had visible veins. Ever wonder why you got them in the first place? To understand that, we need to know a little bit about how veins work. Basically, they direct blood through your body with little doors that keep it moving in one direction. If the doors get damaged, the veins stop working correctly and blood pools, eventually becoming visible above the surface of your skin.
What Happens If They Aren’t Treated?
For most people, visible veins are a purely aesthetic concern. However, they do have the potential to get worse, causing bruising, swelling, discomfort, and itching.
What Do They Look Like
Vascular problems come in all sorts of sizes and shapes. Some are very fine and blueish. Others are large and very dark in color. They might even be raised above your skin. We can help you identify what kind of problem veins you have and what the best approach to improving them will be.
Why Don’t They Get Better By Themselves?
We hate to break it to you, but those veins are not going to get better on their own. Our bodies have incredible healing systems that can do amazing things, but the little doors in our veins do not self-repair after they are broken. That said, laser technology can activate the healing process and get rid of the problem-veins, allowing your body to clear them out.
What Laser Treatments Do?
Laser technology works by heating up the vein beneath the skin. This happens just by positioning the laser over the veins that show. No invasive procedures are necessary.
When the light energy reaches the visible vein, it will heat up and disintegrate. Your body will process the affected vein by getting rid of it and redirecting the blood into other, healthy veins. This will leave you with skin that is clear and free of the vein. You will see major improvements after just one session, and the number of sessions you need to achieve full results varies from person to person.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Laser Vein Removal?
If you are in generally good health and have concerns about the appearance of your veins, chances are, you can benefit from laser treatments. This treatment is extremely safe, and there are only a few situations that might make it better to hold off, including being pregnant and having diabetes. When you come in for a free consultation, we can let you know if it will be good for you.
