If you can see your veins through the skin in your legs, you’re not alone. Unwanted leg veins are common but can be embarrassing, particularly as you age and your skin starts to thin out.
There are two types of unwanted veins you may have in your legs: varicose veins and spider veins.
Varicose veins are large, swollen blood vessels that can twist and turn underneath your skin. Some varicose veins bulge through the skin, making it bumpy and uncomfortable.
Spider veins are smaller and smoother than varicose veins. They’re typically red, purple, or blue, and easily visible through the skin.
Dr. Martinez-Noda uses the Cynosure® Icon™ laser to significantly reduce the appearance of leg veins without surgery. Laser treatments target and destroy the blood vessels responsible for hyperpigmented and bulging leg veins.
Since the Icon laser eliminates blood vessels inside the vein, it never damages the surface layer of your skin, leaving you with clear, flawless skin.
The Icon laser uses a highly targeted beam of light energy that converts to heat once it reaches the inside of your vein. This effectively destroys the blood vessels within the vein, creating scar tissue.
Once this scar tissue forms, it closes the vein and causes it to lose its source of blood.
Eventually, the vein dies from lack of blood and gradually fades, causing the vein to visibly disappear.
Most people need at least one to four treatments to achieve their desired results. Treatments typically take just 30 minutes, making them the perfect lunchtime treatment.
There’s virtually no downtime, so you can return to your normal activities immediately after leaving Dr. Martinez-Noda’s office.
Compared to traditional surgery, laser leg vein treatments are quicker and more comfortable. Most people describe the sensation as feeling like a rubber band snapping against their legs.
You may also feel a slight warmth during and after your treatment.
You may start to notice a visible change in your legs within a few days of your first treatment, but you should see the best results within the first week of your final session with Dr. Martinez-Noda.
If you think laser leg vein treatments are right for you, call Peter Martinez-Noda, DO, or schedule an appointment online today.
