How Does Laser Vein Removal Work?

Laser vein removal from your dermatologist in Glendora, CA, can help with varicose and spider veins

Varicose and spider veins can make you self-conscious about exposing your legs. Fortunately, your dermatologist can help get rid of varicose and spider veins. The answer is laser vein removal, and it's easy and non-invasive. Your dermatologist can tell you more.

Dr. Amarpaul Sidhu at Foothill Cosmetic Surgery Center in Glendora, CA, provides a wide range of dermatology services, including laser vein removal.

Varicose and spider veins can be caused by pressure on the veins from:

  • Standing
  • Walking
  • Sitting
  • Crossing your legs

There is a difference in the appearance of spider veins and varicose veins:

Spider veins are thin and spread out, like the web of a spider

Varicose veins are bulging, prominent veins

Your dermatologist has a unique treatment using the CoolGlide laser. It works using pulses of light energy. This energy causes blood to coagulate, which destroys blood vessels. The damaged blood vessels are absorbed back into your body, and blood is directed to newer, healthier veins.

You should notice excellent results after just one treatment, but two treatments may be necessary to achieve optimal results. There is minimal to no downtime required with laser vein removal, however, you should limit your exposure to sunlight and avoid exercise for the first day after treatment.

There are a lot of things you can do to prevent varicose and spider veins. Remember to:

  • Maintain a healthy weight to minimize pressure on your legs
  • Eat a low salt diet to prevent water retention and swelling in your legs
  • Walk frequently to keep your blood circulating
  • Wear low-heeled shoes and loose clothes
  • Avoid crossing your legs when you sit
  • Move around every 30 minutes
  • Try not to sit or stand still for a long period of time
  • Elevate your legs frequently

You don’t have to put up with the appearance of spider and varicose veins. Laser vein removal can help you look your best.
