Laser Treatment of Veins Park Ridge
Our Surgitron emits RF Wavelengths that pass through the skin and selectively heats up the targeted blood vessels closing them.
What can I expect during the procedure?
The treatment feels like a rubber band snapping. Any discomfort can be eased with the application of cold compresses before and after treatment.
How can I prepare for treatment?
Sun exposure should be avoided 1 -2 weeks before and after treatment. Any supplements that thin the blood (Vit E, Omega 3 oil supplements) should be stopped at least 5days prior to your veins treatment to avoid excessive bruising. Arrive at your appointment well hydrated for best results.
What can I expect after treatment?
The treated veins may be slightly raised and feel warm. It is important not to do any heat inducing activities for 2 days after treatment to avoid re-opening the veins. The treated veins will become less obvious after 1 -2 weeks. Side effects are few and may include redness, swelling, blistering and bruise in the treated area – these usually do not last more than few days. However be sure to consult your doctor when in doubt.
