What results will I see with vein removal?
With vein removal treatment, gradual improvement will be noticed. Many patients find 60% to 80% of the treated vessels resolved. During your vein removal consultation, you will be advised as to the number of treatments necessary to achieve your desired results.
Who are good candidates for vein removal treatment? Light and dark skinned individuals can now safely and effectively benefit from Laser Therapy and Sclerotherapy. Patients with dark suntans or photosensitivity disorders, diabetes, bleeding disorders, or currently taking photosensitizing medications are not good vein removal candidates. Schedule a consultation to determine if you are a candidate and how you can benefit from these treatments.

- Avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, arthritis medications, or other blood thinning drugs (vitamin E, Gingo Biloba) for two days before and after treatment.
- Avoid alcohol and do not smoke for two days before and after treatment.
- To avoid discomfort, do not shave the treatment area the day of your appointment. Do not apply lotions to the treatment area before appointment.

- Bring loose fitting shorts/pants to wear after treatment.
- If you develop a fever or other illness before your appointment you must reschedule.
- Ice or chilled gel-packs may be applied after treatment to increase patient comfort and provide increased skin protection.
