This may keep you from showing off your legs, and many people feel embarrassed – but it does not have to be that way! Dr. Peter Martinez-Noda, DO, has both experience and the technology to eliminate unwanted leg vein appearances so you can get back to feeling confident and comfortable when hitting the beach.
There are two forms of veins that show – spider veins and varicose veins. Spider veins are smaller and smoother varicose veins and show up either red, purple, or blue. Varicose veins are large swollen blood vessels that twist beneath the skin. They can sometimes pop out, making the legs look bumpy while being uncomfortable.
Laser leg vein treatment at family medicine Miami uses the Cynosure® Icon™ laser to treat the appearance of leg veins. It is a non-surgical laser treatment that destroys the blood vessels that cause hyperpigmented or building leg veins. It does not damage the surface of the skin, nor does it cause pain.
The most common number of treatments span anywhere from one to four, depending on your desired results. Each treatment lasts roughly half an hour and does not have downtime. You can resume your normal daily activities following treatment.
Most people see results within a few days to a week.
