The skills of a board-certified surgeon and a range of medical-grade lasers combine at Franklin Skin & Laser to safely lessen unsightly and uncomfortable visible veins within around two to three months. Get ready to confidently flaunt smooth, unblemished skin.
Why you may benefit
Spider veins are red, blue, or purple webs. They are often most prominent on the legs and feet. Varicose veins typically look more obvious, and can bulge out. Dr. Bengelsdorf administers treatments for both spider and varicose veins. Generally, lasers may be used to treat smaller spider veins and even visible capillaries on the face. If your spider veins are large or if you have bulging varicose veins, the doctor may determine an injectable alternative to lasers, known as sclerotherapy, is right for you.
The laser difference
If lasers are determined to be the best option for you, Dr. Bengelsdorf will select the best type of laser based on considerations such as the type of vein to be treated. Lasers and other types of light-based therapies are designed to deliver targeted heat to the treatment site in the form of light energy. No needles or incisions are used!
As the vein absorbs heat energy, laser treatment prompts a process in which the visible vein fades in the weeks or months after the procedure. Patients have described the sensation of laser treatment to a rubber band being snapped against the skin, so it is well tolerated. The doctor may apply a numbing or cooling product to the skin to relieve discomfort associated with the procedure.
Treatment can be completed within a lunch hour and side effects are no different from most other minimally invasive skin procedures, including:
These effects are typically minor and pass quickly. You may wish to keep your legs covered due to redness following treatment. You can get back to most activities without missing a beat.
During a consultation, Dr. Bengelsdorf will also discuss minimal preparation and recovery considerations with laser vein therapy in and around Cool Springs TN. These considerations include wearing compression stockings and avoiding ultraviolet light following sessions.
He can also go over the number of sessions that may be needed to achieve desired results. Lifestyle factors such as prolonged sitting or standing contribute to the development of these problematic veins, but we have effective solutions. Call (615) 595-8177 to schedule an appointment.
