The heat is on, and it is only going to get hotter here in Scottsdale. Are your legs ready to go bare? If you have spider veins on your legs, you might feel a little self-conscious. But the good news is there is still plenty of time to get your legs in top shape for summer with laser vein removal from The Skin Clinic of North Scottsdale.

How Does It Work?

Laser vein removal is an easy way to get rid of those pesky and unsightly spider veins that many of us get on our legs as we get older. During the treatment, a laser light is aimed at the vein. The heat created by the laser makes the vein shrink. The vein will then be gradually reabsorbed by your body.

There is minimal downtime required after laser vein removal. Our medspa professional may recommend that you wear compression stockings for a few days after your treatment. If you do experience any discomfort, applying cold packs will help relieve it. Once 24 hours have passed, apply a good moisturizer over the treated area.

Benefits of Laser Vein Removal

Of course, the greatest benefit of laser vein removal is that it is a non-invasive treatment for treating spider veins, especially smaller ones. Sclerotherapy can also be used for vein removal, but it requires injections, and it is only really effective on large-sized varicose veins.

After your first laser treatment, your smaller spider veins might disappear right away. Larger veins often look darker after your treatment but will typically fade within two to three weeks. It may take two or three treatments, spaced about four weeks apart for your spider veins to disappear entirely.

Instead of covering your legs up, get rid of your spider veins instead. Schedule your free consultation at our medspa with one of our skin care experts.
