GentleLase Vein Reduction (GYAG VR)
Millions of people suffer from unsightly leg veins– from the small spider veins to the larger reticular veins and the painful, bulging varicose veins. The GentleYAG™ laser eliminates all unwanted leg veins non-invasively, without injections or surgery, giving you smooth, vein-free legs.
While most leg veins treated with GentleYAG™ clear immediately, some larger vessels may take on a gray color before naturally fading away. Vessels treated at the prior visit will be mostly or thoroughly gone by the next session. However, some vessels need additional treatment or might need to be treated in combination with sclerotherapy.
How does GentleYAG™ work for leg vein reduction?
The GentleYAG™ laser specifically targets the chromophore/pigment within blood vessel (oxygenated and deoxygenated hemoglobin) with specific wavelengths of light. The light and heat from the laser light closes off the vessels by coagulating the target pigments in the blood within the vessels.
How often do I need to do the treatment?
Usually, a series of two to four treatments are required at four- to six-week intervals for maximum clearance. Treatments are easy and comfortable and no specific preparation is required.
What should I expect after the procedure?
Immediately after procedure, the areas treated will look pink and generally follow the pattern of the vessels removed. This will fade in one to two days as your body takes over to complete the process. You may return to work or other activities such as walking and exercising immediately, with the aid of a support hose right after the procedure. But generally, one to two days of rest are required before resuming your normal activities.[/fusion_text][/one_full]
