How Does Laser Treatment Work
Feel confident showing off your legs in your favorite outfits by reducing the appearance of embarrassing leg veins! The Icon Aesthetic System can help you love your legs again by improving the appearance of spider and small varicose with safe and effective laser technology.
Lasers are unique light emitting devices which give off a single very specific wavelength of light-targeted to eliminate one issue or problem. Certain vascular lasers have been designed to just remove blood vessels, spider veins, and red marks–causing no tissue effect or damage to any other elements of the surrounding skin. The laser beam targets the blood vessels, and seals them.
After the treatment, the skin is mildly red and swollen, and requires a few hours of icing to reduce the local inflammation. Some treated vessels look darker for a few days, then begin to fade and disappear. Generally, patients return to work that day or the next day. The spider veins slowly resolve over 4 weeks. One to three sessions, spaced fours weeks apart, give best results.
What to Expect During Treatment
After just one 30-minute session, unsightly leg veins will slowly start to fade away. Depending on the patient’s condition, multiple sessions are usually recommended to achieve the best results. Icon laser vein treatments are not considered painful and most patients don’t need anesthetic. The most common side effects include some redness and warmth, but they do not typically last long. Many patients are able to resume their normal activities immediately following treatment.
