What are leg veins?

Leg veins, spider veins and other visible benign vascular lesions are common aesthetic conditions for which patients seek treatment for both medical and cosmetic reasons.

Lasers and other light based technologies enable effective treatment of leg veins and vascular lesions by inducing vessel collapse through coagulation with minimal damage to adjacent structures.

Noticeable results with no downtime

how does it work?

The laser or IPL create heat inside the blood vessels, which closes the vein’s walls, eventually causing the vein to disappear.

The laser is very precise and only impacts the selected blood vessel and none of the surrounding skin. The IPL filter also targets the blood only and not of the surrounding skin.

Both Lumenis technologies enable cooling of your skin between pulses, which reduces the chance of skin damage, producing great results.

The treatment

Just before treatment, we apply a thin layer of clear gel onto the treatment area. During treatment, we will treat the targeted veins by applying a few pulses on each blood vessel source.

The treatment will take between 10-20 minutes, depending on the number of blood vessels being treated.

What can I expect after treatment?

Immediately following treatment, darkening of the vessels may be apparent, with slight redness along the vessel. You should avoid hot baths and excessive physical exercise for 1-2 weeks following your treatment. However, you should be able to  continue with your normal activities immediately.

Does it hurt?

During the treatment you may experience a stinging or burning sensation, but it is tolerable.
