Many women and men suffer with varicose veins, particularly in their middle and later years. Thanks to advances in medical technology, removing swollen, twisted, unsightly veins no longer requires painful surgery or a lengthy recovery. Dr. Georges Kaado performs laser vein removal in Virginia Beach, VA with precision and skill to restore the natural beauty of your legs.
Laser vein removal is an advanced, minimally-invasive procedure to remove varicose and spider veins using a highly concentrated beam of light. This quick, non-surgical treatment is performed on an outpatient basis. It is virtually pain-free and does not require general anesthesia.
Advances in technology have made it possible for women and men with unsightly varicose and spider veins to have them removed quickly, safely, and effectively in a minimally-invasive procedure. Light from a laser is passed through the skin, sending pulses of energy to the vein without damaging the surrounding tissue. As the blood in the vein absorbs the light, it heats up, causing the targeted vein to shrink and eventually disappear.
Most patients experience only a minimal sensation of heat. This treatment requires no incisions or injections and can be performed in approximately 20 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area and the severity of the veins. Several treatment sessions may be needed to achieve optimal results.
Although it can vary from patient to patient, there is typically no downtime after our laser vein removal in Virginia Beach. You may resume your normal activities almost immediately after the procedure.
You may experience some minor bruising, which will fade gradually within one or two weeks, or swelling in the treatment area, which usually subsides within a few days.
After laser vein removal, you can expect your varicose or spider veins to clear completely or fade significantly. Your legs will appear more youthful and attractive. The skin on your legs will have a more uniform appearance without the presence of spider veins or swollen, twisted, blue or purple varicose veins.
Although laser vein removal can dramatically improve the appearance of your legs, it does not prevent new varicose veins or spider veins from forming. If new veins appear, you may need further treatment to maintain your results.
