Leg Vein Removal

Unwanted leg veins are common for women of every age and can cause a great deal of embarrassment. With laser treatment, you can diminish the appearance of leg veins without the pain of surgical treatments and lengthy downtimes. When considering vein treatment in Lethbridge, it’s important to know that there are safe, simple procedures that offer relief. You no longer need to cover your legs – show them off with laser leg vein removal.

With innovative laser technology, you can finally stop covering up unsightly spider veins and broken blood vessels! Vein treatments use advanced laser technology to target and destroy the blood vessels responsible for veins, causing them to visibly disappear. Since the laser targets the blood vessels within the vein, there is minimal or no damage to the outer layer of skin. At Lethbridge Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics, your overall experience and outcome are very important to us and we strive daily to provide our patients with excellent care in a relaxed, comfortable setting.

LASER VEIN TREATMENTS ARE SAFE FOR ALL FITZPATRICK SKIN TYPES

WHAT ARE SPIDER VEINS?

Spider veins are those small clusters of blue or purple veins that form just beneath the skin’s surface, most commonly on the legs and face. Spider veins are dysfunctional veins into which blood has backed up and collected. We develop them when tiny, one-way valves inside the veins weaken. In healthy veins, these valves push blood in one direction — back to our heart. When these valves weaken, some blood flows backward and accumulates in the vein. Extra blood in the vein puts pressure on the walls of the vein. With continual pressure, the vein walls weaken and bulge. In time, we see a varicose or spider vein.

DO THE LASER TREATMENTS HURT?

Patients describe a range of sensations from tingling to the snap of a rubber band during the treatment.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

Treatments can take anywhere from 5-30 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.

HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?

A series of treatments may be needed to fully clear blood vessels and reduce the appearance of the veins completely. Typically one to four sessions are needed for desired results.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Many patients experience immediate improvement in the appearance of their veins following the treatment followed by continued improvement over the next week or so. However, more than one treatment session is often needed to fully clear blood vessels and reduce the appearance of the leg veins completely. Treatment plans can be adjusted to fit everyone’s lifestyle – speak to your provider regarding desired downtime, comfort, and results.
