Frequently Asked Questions
What are spider and varicose veins?
Almost 50% of adults in the U.S. have visible veins in their legs. Spider veins form as clusters of tiny blood vessels that develop close to your skin’s surface. As their name indicates, these tiny clusters mimic the shape of a spider web. Varicose veins are the swollen and twisted veins that are visible right under your skin. They most often occur in your legs but can form in other areas of your body as well. Varicose veins are typically an inherited trait, and they show up more prominently as you age.
How can laser therapy treat spider and varicose veins?
The laser technology behind SculpSure® can reduce the appearance of veins in your legs. Vascular laser treatments can safely heal spider and varicose veins without damaging your surrounding skin. Using a beam of targeted laser light, the specialists at Park Avenue Aesthetics safely pass laser energy through your skin into your bloodstream. This process causes those specific blood vessels and veins to naturally disintegrate. The surface of your leg gradually clears, restoring its unblemished appearance. This laser technology is safe for all skin types.
What can you expect during your laser vascular treatment session?
Each treatment session typically lasts about 30 minutes. The procedure is practically painless — the laser pulse is often compared to the thin snap of a rubber band. It’s not uncommon to experience redness and warmth where you’ve had the treatment. You can return to your normal activities immediately after your treatment session, although the doctors at Park Avenue Aesthetics recommend that you stay out of the sun for at least two weeks afterward.
What will happen after your laser therapy session?
Your spider veins gradually disappear a few weeks after your treatment as your body naturally absorbs the veins. However, some people see improvement — by seeing less of those veins — after just one treatment session. Depending on your specific condition, you might require additional sessions to get your desired results.
