What Is Vein and Lesion Treatment?
Spider veins are little, branching blood vessels that are visible underneath the skin. Caused by many factors, like genetics and age, these veins can be red, blue, or purple, making them difficult to hide on ankles, lower legs, or thighs. Lesions on hands and feet may also be a skin issue. To minimize the appearance of spider veins on the body and face or to remove unsightly lesions, Oak Dermatology performs different nonsurgical treatments for vein and lesion removal, including sclerotherapy, laser treatment with the Harmony XL PRO, and Cutera XL-V. In your initial consultation, our staff in Naperville, Itasca, and Joliet, IL can suggest a personalized plan based on your unique needs and goals for your vein or lesion treatment.
What to Expect from Vein and Lesion Treatment
Vein and lesion treatment can help veins of all kinds and proportions. Depending on your needs, some treatments might work better than others, depending on what is being treated. Laser treatments might work great for certain veins, but some patients might be better candidates for sclerotherapy, which places a glycerin solution or the FDA-approved Asclera by Merz directly into the vein to collapse it. Before treatment, however, we typically recommend an ultrasound evaluation to ensure that sclerotherapy is the best treatment for our patients.
Using the Harmony XL PRO's narrow beam of light stimulates the spider vein and then eliminates it. The laser system is very meticulous and focuses on only the target vein so it will not harm nearby healthy skin tissue. Once the vein has collapsed, it takes around 1 – 2 months for the vein to be flushed out of the body and disappear.
If visible veins are situated on your face, upper thighs, back of the legs, or around your ankles, laser vein therapy might be a good treatment technique because of its precision in targeting the affected tissue and avoiding the healthy skin around the veins.
Prior to your treatment, our staff often puts on an anesthetic cream to help you stay comfortable. But our laser systems have a built-in feature that generates a cooling sensation to decrease any pain, if any, felt during the procedure.
