Leg Varicose Vein and Spider Vein Description

Leg veins can be unsightly and painful. They can make you self-conscious and appear older than your actual age. There are a few treatment options that are reasonably painless and provide results fairly quickly.

Candela GentleYAG Treatment For Leg Veins

One option for leg vein removal is a laser leg vein treatment. Laser treatments are commonly used to remove small spider veins with few treatments.

Laser Leg Vein and Spider Vein Removal Treatment

  • Each treatment takes anywhere from fifteen to sixty minutes, depending on the number of veins to be removed, and can be repeated every four to twelve weeks as needed.

  • During the treatment, a long-pulsed Nd:YAG laser (Candela GentleYAG) is used to target the involved varicose vessels.

  • The laser light heats the blood vessels and seals them.The body then absorbs these sealed vessels over time and the vein’s appearance is diminished.

  • If the vessels are not completely reabsorbed by the body or if the vessels only partially respond to the laser, repeat treatments will be needed until the desired result is met. New veins can form over time and additional treatments may be needed.

Laser Leg Vein Removal Results

Laser leg vein removal is reasonably painless and most patients can return to regular activities the same day. Use of medical grade stockings is often recommended for a few days after the treatment, and strenuous activity as well as alcohol, aspirin, and exercise should be avoided for approximately 48 hours after the treatment.

Sclerotherapy Treatment for Leg Varicose Vein Removal

The second commonly used treatment for leg vein removal is called sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy is an injectible therapy that is used to remove larger veins, spider veins, and reticular veins. The end result is the same as the laser procedure, but instead of using light, a chemical solution is used.

During this treatment, the solution is injected into the vein to be removed, which causes it to close and be absorbed by the body. While this treatment does use needles, it does not cause a great deal of pain.

Are There Any Side Effects From Sclerotherapy for Leg Varicose Vein Removal?

The post-treatment recommendations are the same as those with laser treatment. There may also be some small red or pink bumps and a small amount of darkening, bruising or swelling after the procedure.
