What is Recovery Like After Laser Vein Treatment?
Many people find their visible veins and various lesions to be unseemly sights that cause much distress. Board-certified general surgeon and medical director Dr. Matthew Lynch can help you enjoy a more aesthetic appearance through our range of vein and lesion reduction techniques. These nonsurgical methods can reduce the appearance of numerous skin imperfections, including two common vein complaints: broken blood vessels and spider veins.
Improving your skin doesn't mean you'll have to suffer because our state-of-the-art laser system, the Harmony® XL PRO by Alma, can give you effective nonsurgical results without the pain or downtime of more involved, outdated procedures. Learn more by contacting us today.
Nonsurgical vein and lesion reduction
Every patient has different needs, and one's skin texture and type can impact the treatment that would be most beneficial. So, we'll get to know you first, both personally and as a patient. Your tailored skin care routine will begin with a comprehensive consultation, during which Dr. Lynch will assess your skin, examine any imperfections you may wish to diminish, and discuss your goals and concerns. For example, we know that certain issues, including visible veins, can make it hard for patients to feel comfortable in their skin.
These concerns can make individuals look older than their actual age, feel self-conscious, and affect their daily routines – especially when deciding what clothes to wear or attempting to hide their visible veins in social situations.
What is the recovery period like after laser vein treatment?
Even though vascular lesions do not pose a medical problem, they pose a standard-of-living problem by detracting from many patients' daily happiness and confidence. This is why our laser-based treatments can be such a life-boosting boon.
We can minimize the visibility of small-to-moderate vascular lesions, either on the face or on the body, via the Harmony XL PRO. The routine requires no work and almost no pain since all you'll have to do is relax in our comfortable treatment room. A local anesthetic may also be applied if a patient wishes. Your treatment may take 20 – 40 minutes, during which we pass the laser over the targeted area. The wavelengths of light will reach into the skin to diminish the appearance of unaesthetic veins.
The laser-based nature of your treatment means a better, quicker, and easier recovery. The gentle light energy does not cause damage, so you can resume daily activities after your outpatient procedure. As with other laser-based methods, you may experience bruising, swelling, or redness in the treated areas, though these after-effects should subside within 7 –10 days. Results will differ by patient, though many are able to enjoy immediate improvements. You can also help yourself enjoy an optimal outcome by wearing a compression garment during your recovery period to increase blood flow.
