Vein Therapy

Now there is good news for patients interested in removing embarrassing unsightly leg veins without painful injections or incisions. The Vantage(TM) Aesthetic Laser System now makes it possible to treat a wide range of skin types safely and effectively.

The Vantage(TM) system's long pulse Nd: YAG laser light is delivered through an actively-cooled hand piece, which glides comfortably across the skin, removing unsightly spider veins. Treatment with the Vantage(TM) system is non-invasive and quick with no painful injections.

Long-term success varies from patient to patient and vessel to vessel. Many facial vessels (telangiectasia) require only one or two treatments. Multiple treatments are usually required for optimum results of vessels in the legs. Capillaries are tiny blood vessels present throughout the body. Hereditary factors, prolonged sun exposure, aging, trauma and other factors can cause capillaries to become dilated and visible.

The Vantage(TM) system can treat the widest range of skin types because of its innovative technology, cooling hand piece and treatment flexibility. Now we can customize each treatment, matching the appropriate treatment with the patient’s skin type.

Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the handpiece. Although no local anesthetic or pain medication is typically required, some patients opt to use a topical anesthetic prior to treatment. Discomfort is minimal to nonexistent following a treatment.

Most patients find that the majority of the treated veins have shown significant improvement within 2-6 weeks. However, your final results may not be apparent for several months. Overtime, it is possible for new veins to appear, but these too can be treated.

Patients are generally permitted to resume most normal activities immediately. However, when treating leg veins, it is recommended you avoid vigorous activities such as strenuous exercise and hot baths for the first 48 hours after treatment. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun. As always, it is a good idea to limit your sun exposure.
