|Laser Vein Therapy|
Renown utilizes the high-powered 1064-nm Nd:YAG wavelength for the treatment of facial and leg veins-the most common form of vascular lesions. The laser targets the problem veins while sparing surrounding areas. After the treatment, the vessel will naturally disappear. Prices begin at $195 per treatment.
What causes unwanted veins?
Red, blue or purple leg and facial veins can be a result of sun exposure, oral contraception, hormone therapy, age or genetics.
How long does the treatment take?
The treatment is performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of topical anesthetics or gels and typically takes about 20 minutes.
How long does recovery take?
It is recommended to avoid strenuous activity and immersion in hot water (hot tubs, baths) for 24 hours post treatment. Any redness and swelling should be gone within a day or two. After 24 hours, you will be able to resume normal activities.
How many treatments are required?
Typically only one or two treatments are required and results can be seen in 3-4 weeks.
Is the treatment painful?
This treatment causes some discomfort frequently compared to the snap of a rubber band. This discomfort is alleviated by the use of a cold air cooling system.
