It seems like everyone is in pursuit of flawless, radiant skin. In fact, laser treatments…
In Eustis, FL, it can be difficult to tell when the spring season truly kicks in. With weather this beautiful, it’s anyone’s guess when to start the annual spring cleaning. But while you may have junk drawers, stuffed closets, and cobwebs on the brain, another issue still plagues you in the mirror or when slipping into your favorite bathing suit: spider veins and varicose veins.
Much like the junk you hope to clear from your home, spider veins and varicose veins may seem difficult to deal with or even impossible to shift. But thankfully, these veins don’t have to be permanent features of your legs, feet, ankles, or calves. With a simple, comfortable, and quick treatment, you can add these unwanted veins to the heap of junk you’re glad to live without in 2023!
Spring Cleaning for Smoother Skin – Laser Vein Removal & Sclerotherapy
At ALo Medical in Eustis, FL, we use two leading-edge treatment options to shut down unwanted veins for good. Here’s everything you need to know about laser vein treatments and sclerotherapy.
Laser Vein Removal
Unwanted, unsightly veins of numerous types usually share a common cause—weakened, damaged, or compromised vein walls. Poor circulation causes blood to pool at points along these veins, changing their color or contributing to noticeable swelling. Thankfully, these veins aren’t vital, and when they’re destroyed, that blood finds another, less visible path to wherever it needs to go.
Laser vein removal uses honed beams of light to heat the vein walls through the skin. This heat causes the vein walls to scar over, shutting it down for good. Once treated, these veins will not grow back in the same way or same spot as before. It really is as simple as that.
Within two to three weeks of your laser vein removal session, you should notice obvious results. Your unwanted veins should diminish day by day until they eventually disappear forever. For the quickest and best outcome, you may also consider wearing compression stockings.
Thanks to topical cooling gels and contact cooling capabilities, laser vein removal treatments are entirely comfortable. They also offer additional benefits, such as:
- Less pain from unwanted veins
- Smoother skin
- May improve sleep
- May increase mobility & activity
- Boosted confidence
- Expanded wardrobe options
- Healthier blood flow
Throughout the cosmetic community, lasers get the lion’s share of glory these days. But there is another method for permanently dealing with varicose and spider veins: sclerotherapy (skleh-row-there-uh-pee).
Sclerotherapy relies on an irritant solution that’s injected directly into the unwanted vein. This solution attacks the vein, causing scarring, clotting, and collapse. As in laser vein removal, the treated vein gradually dissolves and the blood it carried finds another way to get wherever it was going.
Sclerotherapy can also treat several types of unwanted vascular lesions, including:
- Broken capillaries
- Varicose veins
- Facial redness
- Spider Hemangiomas
Depending on the size and location of the treated vein, it may take anywhere from 3 weeks to several months before the vein vanishes. Multiple sclerotherapy injections may also be required to treat larger veins or multiple veins in larger areas. As with laser vein removal, sclerotherapy results are permanent.
Sclerotherapy has existed in one form or another for nearly 350 years! Obviously, the modern version makes the most of a leading-edge irritant solution, offering dozens of advantages like:
- Permanent results
- Safe & effective
- Quick & comfortable procedure
- No recovery/downtime
- Safe for all skin types
- Quick results
- Minimal side effects
