Laser Vein Removal/Vascular Reduction

Laser Vein Removal/Vascular Reduction (Long Pulsed Yag)

The Long Pulsed Yag laser penetrates through the skin and is readily absorbed by hemoglobin and melanin chromophores (veins and vascular lesions). It removes unsightly facial veins and small vascular lesions from any area of the body. Its energy heats and damages blood vessels, causing them to collapse.

Who is a good candidate for Long Pulsed YAG Laser?

The most common candidates are those with leg veins that cause pain, skin problems, blood clots, or they are causing a lack of self-esteem and confidence. The best way to determine if you’re the right candidate would be to schedule a consultation with Dr. Singh.

How many treatments are required?

For best results, patients usually require more than one treatment scheduled every 6-12 weeks.

What can be expected post-treatment?

There is little to no downtime. Most patients are able to return to their normal activities soon after treatment. It’s important to delay any physical exercise for the next 72 hours. Be sure to protect your treatment areas from the sun with sun protective wear and sunscreen.
