What Can I Expect From My Laser Leg Vein Treatment?

No matter what age you are, if you find yourself wanting to cover up in the summer months and avoid the beaches altogether, Peter Martinez-Noda, D.O., family medicine in Miami, can help you achieve a clear look on your legs. Through years of experience and advanced technology, more days at the beach are on your horizon. 

Varicose veins and spider veins are the types of leg veins we see patients want to treat. Using the Cynosure® Icon™ laser, Dr. Martinez-Noda will help reduce the appearance of leg veins without ever needing surgery. Laser treatments destroy blood vessels that cause hyperpigmentation and bulging veins. There is no damage to the surface of your skin because the laser targets the blood vessels inside the vein. 

A high beam of light energy that converts to heat is how these lasers work. After destroying the blood vessels, scar tissue forms, closing the vein and causing it to lose its source of blood. The vein then dies from lack of blood and fades over time. 

Anywhere from one to four treatments are the typical number we recommend for patients. Treatments take around 30 minutes to complete, and there is virtually no downtown following each one. You may feel some warmth or a “rubber band popping” sensation, but these treatments are painless, especially compared to surgery.
