What is laser vascular therapy? Laser vascular therapy is the process of delivering pulses of light energy to unwanted superficial vascular structures through the skin such as:
- Leg Veins: Spider veins, small vessels
- Telangiectasias: Small red facial veins
- Venous Lakes: Venous malformation that appears as blue/black soft bump, commonly seen on the lip or ear fold.
- Hemangiomas: Blood blisters or prominent red dots that often occur during/after pregnancy or with hormonal variation
Do the treatments hurt? Most patients experience a stinging sensation with each pulse of light delivered. The majority of patients tolerate this very well. We will discuss pre-treatment pain control with you at your consultation. Post procedure pain is very minimal if present at all. Our laser system has the latest technology in being able to continually cool your skin during your treatment, which greatly improves comfort during and after the procedure.
