About Laser Leg Vein Removal
Laser leg vein removal offers a nonsurgical solution for removing spider and reticular leg veins in less than 30 minutes with results that are long-lasting. More importantly, it is an alternative to surgical leg vein removal, which leaves no incision scars and does not require a lengthy recovery.
What Results Can I Expect?
Before your Icon™ leg vein treatment, Dr. Mariam Awada will typically apply a gel to the area being treated. This will help ensure the laser energy is delivered appropriately and will help cool the area during and after the treatment. The provider will begin the treatment by moving the laser handpiece over your skin, following the length of the vein and pulsing the energy as they go. You will be provided safety goggles before the treatment to protect your eyes, but you may still see flashes of light as the laser energy is being delivered to your skin. You will also feel a mild sensation and heat on the skin during the treatment. Dr. Mariam Awada may cool the area after the treatment using a cool roller, cold air, or ice packs to help with any discomfort.
The vessels may undergo immediate graying or blanching, or they may exhibit a slight purple or red color change. The vessels will fully or partially fade in about ten to fourteen days. Schedule a follow-up appointment for an evaluation. Repeat treatments may be performed every three to four weeks. One to four treatments may be necessary. Do not pick, remove, or pull at any darkened lesions, as scarring may occur.
How Does it Work?
The laser handpiece will deliver light energy into your skin and will be absorbed by the blood within the vein being targeted while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. Once the blood absorbs this energy, the vein will heat up, and it will affect the vessel lining. It is thus causing the vessel to constrict and eventually fade from view leaving your legs looking clear and as beautiful as ever.
What Should I Expect at My IPL ICON MAXG?
Leg vein treatments with our Icon™ laser are safe and comfortable. The specific handpiece delivers the energy in one smooth, gentle pulse, to protect the skin from any temperature rise. In addition, a chilled tip on the handpiece cools the skin during the treatment, both protecting your skin and providing a comfortable treatment.
