Varicose veins removal treatment

Veins are tubular ducts with valves in them that are responsible of taking blood to the heart. Veins above the heart do not have flowing problems since the blood goes back to the heart due to gravity. However, the blood flow of the veins located below the heart (especially in the legs) must fight against gravity to go up, which it does thanks to various mechanisms.

Varicose veins removal without surgery

Varicose veins removal with microfoam
This new technique replaces most conventional surgery to eliminate varicose veins: a sclerosing substance is injected into insufficient saphenous trunks and affected vessels with no anaesthesia and without leaving any scar. This method has the great advantage that there is no risk of damaging surrounding tissues or nerves.

Small varicose veins and vascular spiders
Insufficiency of smaller veins is evidenced with the appearance of multiple vascular spiders, which can be painful. Depending on size and extent, the treatment can be done by inoculating a substance that closes the varicose vein –sclerosis– or by applying laser through the skin. Aesthetic results are evident given that vascular lesions are gone.

Vascular Treatments: Varicose Vein Removal, Small Varicose Veins, Angiomas, Ruby Spots...

There are multiple vascular lesions that can be treated with Cynosure lasers.

Birthmarks are a source of deep psychological stress. They usually appear on the face and neck.

Haemangiomas are vascular malformations that appear as reddish and embossed birthmarks. They mostly appear in infants and children.

Clinical studies claim that a laser treatment is very effective even in those warts that have not reacted to other treatments with acids, cryogen, other chemical agents or surgical excision.

What causes unwanted veins?

Red, blue or purple veins on the legs and face may be caused by sun exposure, use of oral contraceptives, hormone therapy, age or genetics.

How does laser treatment work?

A cosmetic laser sends a prescribed energy dose into the vein. The laser “selects” the affected veins and treats them. After the procedure, vessels will naturally disappear.

How many treatments are needed?

A person would normally need one or two treatment sessions and the results can be seen within 3 to 4 weeks. A treatment session takes about 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the size of the area to treat.

Is it painful?

Laser treatment causes minimal discomfort. Any visible redness or inflammation should disappear in one day and you can resume normal activities immediately.
