Laser Vein Removal FAQ'S:
 
 
1.How does laser light removal of unwanted blood vessels work?
      Lasers are a non-invasive light therapy device specifically designed to eliminate undesired blood vessels from all parts of the body. The laser generates a pulse of intense, concentrated light, which is directed through a handpiece that is gently aimed at the treatment site.
      This laser energy passes through the skin to the blood vessels, which you wish to have eliminated, where the energy is absorbed by pigment in the blood, causing selective damage to the lining of the target blood vessel without damaging the surrounding tissues, and skin. The deeply penetrating wavelength of the laser allows us to target blood vessels that other, shorter wavelength lasers cannot safely reach. The laser is pulsed, of "turned on", for only a fraction of a second. The duration of the pulses is carefully determined so that laser energy will be absorbed by the blod vessels without transfering excessive heat to the surrounding skin.
   The blood vessels, which have been destroyed, are absorbed by the body, and the flow of blood is directed back down into the deeper vessels, where it belongs. The surface of the skin is protected by an air-cooling device that blows during the treatment. This selectivity helps to protect skin, while effectively treating the unwanted vessels.
   The laser can be used just about anywhere on the body, and usually requires no anesthesia or other treatment. Even sensitive areas such as the nose and cheeks can be treated easily and with minimal discomfort. Laser treatment is a safe, fast, gentle, and effective method for removal of unwanted blood vessels. In just a few sessions using gentle power of lasers light, you can greatly improve the appearance of skin, which is disfigured by unwanted blood vessels and "broken capillaries."
 
2.What is the estimated recovery time?     
   For the majority, post operative discomfort is almost non-existent. After treatment with most light systems, the treated skin may appear a little flushed and capillaries may seem to be more visible. The flushed look soon fades away, and the capillaries appear to vanish, leaving skin looking younger.
