Laser Vein Removal
Laser vein removal is a new advance in the care of veins of the legs and face. This technique has quickly replaced sclerotherapy and the primary treatment for care of spider veins.
Dr. Sampson recommends the use of laser as the primary treatment of spider veins. In the Jackson, Michigan office, Dr. Sampson has an advanced Nd Yag laser available to treat patients of various skin types. These happy patients have seen the deformity, unsightly veins, vanish with the use of this laser.
Laser vein removal works by injuring the blood vessels with a concentrated beam of energy. The blood vessel absorbs the energy and the veins clot. The clotted veins are reabsorbed by the body.
The number of required treatments are dependent on the size and number of veins. Usually the first treatment produces dramatic results, but additional treatments are necessary for a complete treatment. There is usually minimal discomfort associated with laser vein therapy. The injury to the veins is permanent though patients with venous disease may see vein develop in other areas.
The patients in Dr. Sampson’s office have been very happy with the results produced by the use of the laser vein removal. Call for your appointment today.
