Laser Treatment of Leg Veins
Laser leg vein procedures reduce the appearance of superficial red, purple and blue veins. For this purpose, Advanced Dermatology uses CoolGlide® Vantage laser (1064 nm. Nd:YAG), a state-of-the-art laser. The physician or physician assistant applies ultrasound gel and then treats the target veins with pulses of laser (light) energy. These pulses seal the vein with heat. The procedure requires 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the number of veins involved. Subsequent treatments are suggested at 6 to 12 week intervals. 2 to 4 treatments are usually needed for long-lasting results.
