Laser vein therapy for the legs
What is laser leg vein therapy?
Leg veins can be one of the most frustrating aesthetic imperfections to deal with, especially because they are nearly impossible to eliminate without the help of cosmetic treatment. If you’re looking for a way to remove visible leg veins that is simple, easy, and non-invasive, you may want to consider undergoing a laser leg vein therapy treatment with the ICON 1064. The key to treatment is the treat the feeding vessels.
The ICON 1064 is a specialized handpiece that is part of the state-of-the-art ICON laser machine. The 1064 handpiece is specially designed to target visible spider and reticular veins in the legs and eliminate them through the use of a short, non-invasive procedure.
How does the ICON 1064 Laser fix leg veins?
During treatment, the ICON 1064 laser handpiece is passed over the surface of the skin, delivering laser light to the site of visible veins. This light passes through the uppermost layers of the skin and is absorbed by the visible spider or reticular vein as heat. This heat begins to disrupt the lining of the targeted blood vessel, causing it to constrict and eventually be removed from the body altogether in the weeks following treatment. Once this process is complete, the vein is no longer visible on the surface of the skin.
What can I expect from laser leg vein treatment?
Following treatment, the color of the treated veins may change to purple or red. Within two weeks of undergoing an ICON 1064 treatment, visible veins should have either fully or partially faded. For individuals who experience only partial fading, repeated treatments can be performed three to four weeks apart.
