Laser Vein Treatment Q & A

What kinds of veins respond to laser vein treatment?

Laser vein treatment at Altus Medical Care can remove or significantly reduce the appearance of veins on your legs, face, hands, or other parts of your body. Laser vein treatment can address spider veins and even some smaller varicose veins with no needles, no surgery, and no downtime. 

How does laser vein treatment work?

You’ll wear eye protection while your Altus Medical Care provider focuses the laser on the unwanted veins, one by one. The laser passes through your skin to reach the vein, where the energy transforms into heat. 

The heat damages your vein walls, which triggers vein collapse. The blood inside your veins moves to other parts of your body, and you’ll flush away the vein tissue remnants through regular bodily functions in the weeks to come. 

What happens after laser vein treatment?

After your laser vein treatment, your smallest threadlike veins may vanish right away. Larger veins might initially grow darker before they gradually lighten again and finally fade away over the next few months. 

How many laser vein treatments do I need?

It varies by patient and individual needs. If you have only a small amount of tiny facial veins, you could need as little as one treatment. But, if you’re dealing with a large group of long or prominent veins, you might need a series of sessions to get optimal results. 

During your consultation at Altus Medical Care, your provider examines your veins and discusses your goals with you so you can determine the treatment plan that will give you the results you want. 

How can I prevent veins in the future?

Once you’re free of unwanted veins, you’ll naturally want to maintain your clear skin. There are a few things you can do to help prevent veins from developing, including: 

  • Wearing a high SPF sunscreen when outdoors
  • Exercising regularly
  • Maintaining a healthy weight (and get weight loss help if you need it)
  • Elevating your legs while at rest

Although you can’t control a genetic tendency to veins, simply taking control of the factors above may help you stay vein-free so you won’t need laser vein treatment again in the future.
