Laser Treatments are the treatment of choice for treating small, spider veins on the face and nose and can also be used on spider and small veins on the legs and body for those who have not responded to sclerotherapy and also have light coloured skin.
The Laser light is preferentially absorbed by the red colour in the blood which flows in the veins. This light converts to heat, causing shrinkage of the vein into which the light was directed. No special dressing or stocking is required.
You are provided with an after hours direct number in the event you may have any questions or concerns you wish to speak to us about. Generally after Laser treatment discomfort is minimal. Your post-treatment appearance will vary depending on what type of treatment your Doctor or Cosmetic Physician selects for your condition.
Following any treatment, your skin may feel tender for several days. You should follow your Doctor's instructions, and avoid any harsh skin cleansers and the use of sunscreen is essential. Any scratching or rubbing of the skin should be avoided.
