Our advanced laser and pulsed light platforms effectively treat and diminish the appearance of unsightly leg veins. Our leading vein removal solutions offer affordable, non-ablative and safe alternatives to surgery that deliver impressive results with no downtime. Our technologies apply pulsed light, set to the appropriate wavelength, to heat the blood within the problematic veins, affecting the flow and vessel lining, causing the veins to constrict; this process causes the vein to degenerate and eventually completely fade, resulting in clearer, better looking legs.
Frequently asked questions about Vein Removal in Lethbridge
A laser is a device that sends a thin beam of radiation in the form of light. Laser surgery closes and shrinks the varicose vein and causes scar tissue within the vessel. This seals off the vein. Blood then flows through other nearby veins instead.
Laser Treatment Preparation May Cause Discomfort
The procedure typically begins with a topical numbing agent before injections of numbing medicine are placed throughout the length of the vein being treated. During these injections, you may experience mild pain or discomfort, similar to a mosquito bite.
Neither procedure appears to be a guaranteed permanent fix for varicose veins, however. Veins can grow back even after they're cut away, and sometimes the laser treatment fails to seal a vein completely, allowing the blood flow to gradually return.
