What is Laser Vein Therapy?
Laser vein therapy is a painless non-invasive procedure that’s most effective for spider veins and smaller varicose veins. Laser therapy uses heat energy to penetrate the dermis and damage the vein. Over time, scar tissue grows around the damaged vein, which forces the vein to collapse and eventually become absorbed by the body.
Laser vein therapy sessions are scheduled every few months, depending on the size and severity of the vein. There’s no downtime associated with the treatment, with final results visible after one to two years of treatment.
What Is Sclerotherapy?
An alternative to laser vein therapy is sclerotherapy, which is a more invasive procedure that delivers faster results. Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a salt solution directly into the spider or varicose vein. The solution is designed to irritate the walls of the vein; once this happens, the vein collapses and becomes absorbed by the body.
*Sclerotherapy can deliver faster results than laser vein therapy, with final results visible within two months for spider veins and three to four months for varicose veins. Sclerotherapy shows a high rate of effectiveness, 50% to 80% of treated veins are no longer visible after just one session.
