For safe, effective and minimally invasive treatment of unwanted veins, make an appointment for laser vein treatment at La Belle Clinic. The laser treatment we offer at our vein clinic in Melbourne is designed to clear away blood veins such as spider veins on the face and legs, helping to boost confidence.
Laser treatment for veins works by using long-pulse lasers to treat vascular lesions. The treatment doesn’t involve any injections or incisions, meaning little to no discomfort is experienced. The laser penetrates 5-6mm into the skin, emitting energy that targets the unwanted vein while leaving surrounding tissue unaffected. After being targeted, the treated vein disappears naturally. For treating spider veins, the laser light is focused on the unwanted vein in order to make the blood heat up and shrink the vein.
If you’re looking to minimise the appearance of spider veins on your legs or face, make an appointment at our vein clinic in Melbourne. Call us on (03) 9670 3399 or contact us online today.
Leg and facial spider veins can appear due to excess sun exposure, age, genetics, and the taking of certain medications.
While patients describe a tingling sensation that’s similar to the snap of a rubber band, it’s not considered to be painful. In addition to causing minimal discomfort, the treatment also has little to no downtime, meaning you can get back to your daily activities straight away. You will be provided with after care instructions once the treatment is complete.
Laser vein treatment at our vein clinic in Melbourne is completely safe, as other healthy veins continue to supply blood to the treated area. The body’s immune system clears away the dead tissue similarly to how a bruise is removed, making it a safe and natural treatment.
For the best results, multiple laser spider vein removal sessions may be required. How many treatments you need can vary depending on how many vessels need treating and their location. Typically, each treatment takes about 20 minutes, but this could be longer depending on the size of the treatment area.
