Laser Vein Treatment in New Jersey
If you have developed spider veins or varicose veins, laser vein treatment can be the perfect solution for restoring clarity to the skin. The Peer Group for Plastic Surgery offers this treatment to the men and women living in Morristown and Livingston, NJ.
What is Laser Vein Treatment?
Laser vein treatment is an advanced treatment that uses laser energy to eliminate the appearance of spider veins and varicose veins. Using laser energy, we are able to safely target the veins from the skin's surface. As the target vein heats, it becomes damaged, and blood flow through that vein will be stopped. This causes the vein to fade from view, leaving you with clearer skin. There are thousands of other veins in the body, so there is no risk of this treatment affecting blood circulation. At The Peer Group, we use the Nd:Yag laser for laser vein treatment, the same laser that can also be used for age spot removal, brown spot removal and sun damage treatment.
How Much Does Laser Vein Treatment Cost?
The exact cost of treatment will vary depending on your unique treatment goals and the extent of treatment necessary. During your initial consultation, we thoroughly discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine the laser vein treatment technique that is best for you. Once we develop a customized treatment plan, we will be able to inform you of the exact cost of treatment.
What is the Laser Vein Treatment Like?
The laser vein treatment may involve the use of anesthetics, depending on the treatment area. During treatment, we use a handheld laser device to carefully target spider veins or varicose veins beneath the surface. You may feel a warm sensation during this process, although it is generally well-tolerated by most patients. Treatment typically takes about 30 minutes to complete, although it may take longer if multiple areas are being treated in a single appointment.
What is the Laser Vein Treatment Recovery Like?
The recovery from laser vein treatment is generally brief. You may experience redness and irritation in the treatment area, but these effects typically fade within a day or two. Despite these effects, patients can usually return to work and all other usual activities immediately after their treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from Laser Vein Treatment?
The results from laser vein treatment become visible in the weeks following treatment, as the treated veins fade from view. Most patients achieve optimal results after a single treatment, but for particularly large or widespread vein concerns, multiple treatment sessions may be necessary. During your consultation, we will discuss how many treatments are necessary based on your cosmetic goals.
