Laser Vein Treatment

Laser therapy is another alternative medical procedure that also can be performed at our Burlington Laser Vein Treatment clinic serving Mount Hope. It is sometimes used as a complement to Sclerotherapy in order to maximize results. It is most effective for spider veins and tiny varicose 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 uses a focused beam of light that heats and damages the affected blood vessel, which eventually fades.

There are two types of laser vein treatments: simple and endovenous.

Simple laser vein treatment for our Mount Hope clients is done on the outside of your skin. It can treat spider veins and tiny varicose veins just under the skin's surface. Usually, more than one laser session is needed. They are scheduled every 6 to 12 weeks, as prescribed by your doctor.

Endovenous laser treatment can treat larger varicose veins in the legs. A laser fibre is passed through a thin tube (catheter) into the vein. While doing this, the doctor watches the vein on a duplex ultrasound screen. Laser is less painful than vein ligation and stripping, and it has a shorter recovery time. Only local anesthesia or a light sedative is needed for laser treatment.

What can I expect after treatment?

You will be able to walk following the treatment, and recovery typically is short. You are likely to be able to return to your normal daily routine after simple laser treatment.

After endovenous laser treatment, you will wear compression stockings for 1 week or more. To follow up, your doctor will use duplex ultrasound to make sure that the vein is closed.

Are there any risks with Laser Vein Therapy?

Potential side effects include minor redness or swelling around the treated area, skin discoloration, blisters, and rarely scarring. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy is a recently developed treatment for spider veins. IPL delivers pulses of different bands of light to targeted areas.

Our medical staff are very experienced with providing safe and effective laser treatment for varicose veins that the risks are minimal to none.

How many treatments required for Laser Vein Therapy?

As with Sclerotherapy, several sessions are frequently necessary for optimal results with laser therapy. Resolution can take anywhere from several weeks to several months after treatment.

It was my first time visiting for a treatment and the customer engagement/service I received was incredible. I’ll be returning, referring friends and family. 😊

I have been a client at Laser Aesthetics for about 8 years. I have nothing but good things to say regarding my experience there. The owner (Sue) and receptionist (Sharon) are kind, approachable and professional. I never feel rushed and Sue always takes the time to answer any questions or concerns i have. I have always been pleased with my results and wouldn't go anywhere else. Highly recommend.

I’ve been going for years now and I’ve always received excellent treatment. I moved to Brantford and continue to make the drive because I love the results so much! Very professional and clean!

I came to Laser Aesthetics and saw Sue for Filler and Botox after a friend recommended her. After moving from farther away It was so hard to find someone to trust with such treatments. Ive never been more happy with my results and will defiantly be continuing my treatments at Laser Aesthetics! Always Friendly at the front door and make me feel welcome. Thank you!!
