Laser Vein Therapy

Laser Therapy for Vein Treatment

Laser therapy is another alternative medical procedure that also can be performed in your physician's office. It is sometimes used as a complement to Sclerotherapy in order to maximize results. It is most effective for spider veins in legs and other parts of the body. For those individuals who do not like needles, this provides an alternative option, though your physician will counsel you on which treatment modality is best given your particular situation.

How does Laser Therapy for Vein Treatment Work?

Laser therapy utilizes a focused beam of light to gently heat and target the affected blood vessel, causing it to gradually fade away.

There are two types of laser vein treatments:

  1. Simple Laser Vein Treatment: This approach is performed externally on your skin's surface and is ideal for addressing spider veins and small varicose veins located just beneath the skin. Typically, multiple laser sessions are required, with sessions scheduled every 6 to 12 weeks, as recommended by your doctor.

  2. Endovenous Laser Treatment: Designed for the treatment of larger varicose veins in the legs, this method involves the passage of a specialized laser fiber through a thin catheter into the affected vein. Throughout the procedure, your doctor closely monitors the vein's progress using our state-of-the-art duplex ultrasound screen. Compared to traditional vein ligation and stripping, laser treatment is significantly less painful and boasts a shorter recovery period. You can undergo this treatment with the added comfort of only requiring local anesthesia or a light sedative."

Recovery and Aftercare Following Laser Vein Therapy

Recovery After Laser Vein Therapy

Following your laser vein treatment, here's what you can anticipate:

  • Simple Laser Treatment: You'll be able to walk immediately after the procedure, and recovery is typically swift. Most individuals find themselves able to resume their regular daily activities shortly after undergoing this treatment.

  • Endovenous Laser Treatment: After this specialized procedure, you will wear compression stockings for a recommended duration, typically one week or longer. For added assurance, your doctor will conduct a follow-up examination using duplex ultrasound to ensure the vein is properly sealed and the treatment has been successful. This thorough monitoring is an essential step in your journey towards healthier veins and enhanced well-being.

Are there any risks with Laser Vein Therapy?

Potential side effects include minor redness or swelling around the treated area, skin discoloration, and in rare cases, the development of blisters or scarring. It's important to note that Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy is another innovative option for addressing spider veins. IPL delivers precise pulses of varying light bands to targeted areas, offering an alternative approach for those seeking vein treatment.

Our medical staff are highly experienced in providing safe and effective laser treatment for varicose veins. Rest assured that these risks are minimal to none under their expert care, and your well-being is our top priority.

How Many Treatments are Required for Laser Vein Therapy?

Similar to Sclerotherapy, Laser Vein Therapy often requires multiple sessions to achieve the best possible results. The exact number of sessions needed can vary depending on individual circumstances and the severity of the condition being treated. Typically, you can expect to see gradual improvements over time, with resolution ranging from several weeks to several months following the completion of your treatments. Our medical team will work closely with you to create a personalized treatment plan that aligns with your specific needs and goals.

BTL EMSELLA is a new service now being offered here, and if you are someone like me who has lived her life with too many bathroom breaks, I would recommend giving this treatment a try. I have dealt with a sensitive bladder for most of my life, and to say the least, this has been inconvenient. I was getting up at least once a night and whenever I was out looking for the closest washroom. When I heard about this treatment being offered, I decided to give it a try. Six sessions over 3 weeks. Nothing invasive or painful. My experience so far has been liberating in that I am no longer having an interrupted sleep and can wander the mall for a few hours before scoping out the nearest washroom. In my opinion this has been totally worth it.

the BEST laser hair removal ever. I am so happy with my results, it has genuinely changed my life. I had issues my whole life shaving and getting insane irritation, but after a few sessions here my hair barely grows anymore. and it’s been about a year since I’ve had any treatments- still barely any hair growth. I went to a different med spa first and had 8 laser hair removal sessions which did nothing to reduce my hair growth. Then came to this clinic and i saw results after my first session. i’m telling you the laser is very effective and the technician is VERY thorough and gets all the spots. 10/10 if you want results and hair reduction give this a try I would recommend to everyone!!

I have been a loyal client for years and this review is long overdue. The entire team at Laser Aesthetics are not only consummate professionals but I feel like I’m talking to old friends from the moment I call to book an appointment. Sharon the administration manager is an absolute sweetheart and will do whatever she can to accommodate my appointment requests even though they are understandably busy. The clinic is modern and spotless and has been maintained impeccably over the years. Sue is the owner and has been doing my injections since my late 20s. She is an absolute artist and innovator and has been at the top of the industry for years now. Never once has she pressured me or been heavy handed in her treatments. She gives insightful and honest consults and I trust my face to her and no one else. I moved to LA for a couple years and saw several top injectors during that time only to be injured and/or disappointed each time. I’m am thrilled to be back in the GTA and back to trusting the team at LA. Over the years I have also been a huge fan of their state of the art Laser Hair Removal, skin treatments and facial services. I also have used their skincare line exclusively for 10+ years. An absolute gem in the heart of Burlington. 🙏💕
