No more living with unsightly veins on your legs or face! At Smooth Effects we use our Venus Versa to treat a broad range of vessels from tiny spider veins to deep blue veins. Small facial veins known as telangiectasia as well as small lesions (cherry angioma ) or blood blisters (hemangioma) can all be treated quickly without bruising or complication.
The laser delivers pulses of light energy which causes the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel, which is then reabsorbed by your body. After the treatment, an improvement is apparent immediately. Redness and some mild swelling may occur after the treatment but typically lasts 12-24 hours. Unlike sclerotherapy, there are no needles when treating veins with laser, only a mild prickly sensation. To ensure client comfort, we use a cold air chilling unit during the treatment and cool gel packs afterwards. The number of treatments depends on the size, color and quantity of the veins being treated but on average, one to three sessions are required.
As the size and amount of veins can greatly vary we do quotes for each individual during consultation.
