Leg Veins

What is Leg Vein Removal?

Leg veins can cause us to become self-conscious and can present in Superficial, small veins; pink to purple in colour.

At the Dr Lanzer Skin Clinic we have the luxury of having both the 523nm and 1064nm laser to treat both the red (“telangiectasia”) spider veins and also the green (“reticular”) veins. This laser does not treat Varicose veins, they usually require surgery and are not appropriate for laser therapy.

How Does it work?

The laser works by delivering a very fine focused beam of light that is absorbed by haemoglobin in the veins and the heat produced causes photocoagulation. This results in these blood cells becoming hot and creating a clotting effect, which collapses or closes the vein, while causing no surrounding tissue damage. The body will then slowly remove the collapsed veins during the skin’s natural healing response resulting in the reduction of veins and redness.

Benefits of Leg Veins

How many treatments will I need?

The number of leg vein removal treatments will vary, however, we estimate you will need around 3-6 treatments, 8-12 weeks apart.

At Dr Lanzer we offer a Free Consultation where we go over your concern and map out a clear and detailed treatment plan. It’s important when you have a skin concern you need to ensure commitment in order to achieve an improvement in the skin.

Does it hurt + are there any side effects?

You may feel a warm, tingling sensation whilst the laser is being applied to the vein. The treatment should not be painful; however, we expect you to feel the sensation of the laser.

There is no downtime involved with this treatment, post treatment you may notice slight redness on the treated site which will reduce after a couple of hours.

Our therapists will go over all correct aftercare to ensure you are looking after the areas correctly post treatment.
