Leg Vein Treatment

A non-invasive laser vein removal treatment to eliminate both spider veins and varicose veins so your circulation can reroute itself to healthier blood vessels. Our IPL laser directly treats spider veins by damaging the walls of the blood vessel by applying heat to it. Once the blood vessel is damaged, it will eventually disappear and be reabsorbed by the body. IPL is effective because it treats the lower layers of the skin.

What to Expect

RECOVERY:After each treatment, you will have some swelling and redness. for a few hours followed by 1-2 days of redness.
PAIN: Topical numbing cream applied prior to treatment
REPEAT: 1-3 treatments as needed

Sleep elevated to avoid additional swelling.
