The laser is aimed at an affected vein. The laser light goes through the skin to treat the vein. You won’t have any cuts, but the heat from the laser may cause some discomfort.
The laser causes scar tissue that closes the vein. After it is closed, a vein loses its source of blood. In time, the vein is harder to see.
A session takes 15 to 20 minutes. Usually more than one laser session is needed. You might have another session in 6 to 12 weeks.
Laser treatment for vascular lesions is also highly effective for removing a variety of benign pigmented lesions, such as freckles, age spots, melasma, & more.
