Varicose Vein & Spider Vein Treatment
Spider veins form when the valves in the veins stop functioning correctly. Veins collect and carry the blood back to the heart and lungs to be oxygenated. Unlike arteries, veins do not contain any smooth muscle surrounding the lumen (tube massage). Therefore, they cannot push blood back to the heart, and instead rely on the large, striated muscle (like your bicep, or hamstrings) to push blood back to the heart. To prevent the blood from slipping backwards, the veins are filled with little one valves, that only allow blood to flow one way. However, with age, trauma, etc., the valves stop working and the blood begins to fall backwards and pool, thus creating spider veins, varicose veins, etc.
ReMove Varicose Vein & Spider Vein Treatment
The laser or IPL machine uses a certain frequency of light that is preferentially absorbed by the blood (specifically the oxy and deoxy hemoglobin). Because it is preferentially absorbed by the blood, the blood vessels heat up more quickly relative to the surrounding tissue. This causes them to clot or sclerose closed, rendering them broken and ready for reabsorption. The body then reabsorbs those broken veins. This is not dangerous because the body has lots of extra veins and that easily compensate for the ones that are lost. Plus, the targeted veins were already not working very well, and the body has already compensated for them.
The Laser or IPL should not be performed on dark brown or black pigmented skin types because of the high risk of permanent skin color changes, and possible burns. Otherwise, if you have spider veins or small varicose veins, people who have ReMove Laser Vein Removal are typically very satisfied with their results and we invite you to schedule a free consultation.

How Many Treatments Are Required To See Results With ReMove Laser Vein Removal?
Many veins will improve immediately or completely vanish, but some make time some time to disappear completely. Several treatments may be required to achieve the desired results. The larger and deeper the vein, the more treatments one will need. Shallow, smaller veins may be vanished with one treatment.
Does ReMove Laser Vein Removal Hurt?
Because heat is used to treat the veins, the part of the skin treated by the laser may get a little hot. The skin may be red and swollen afterword. However, most of the time because the laser tip is chilled the procedure is quite tolerable and rarely painful.
What Is The Recovery Time?
Laser or IPL Vein Removal has little to no down time. There may be very mild redness and or swelling that usually resolves in 1-2 days. Most of the time one can go about normal activity.
What Are The Side-Effects With ReMove Laser Vein Removal?
Redness may persist for a few days. Blotchy discoloration may occur in 5-10% of patients following treatment as we are destroying the vein, which can lead to a small mount of bruising. Very rarely can we see some pigment lightening, or a very superficial burn.
Will I Be Satisfied With The Results?
People who have the ReMove Laser Vein Removal treatments are typically very satisfied with their results, if they understand the improvement timeframe and the possibility that repeated treatments may be necessary to achieve their desired results. Those who have unrealistic expectations will be dissatisfied.
Can ReMove Laser Vein Removal Be Done on All Skin Types?
The IPL or ReMove Laser Vein Removal should not be performed on dark brown or black skin types because of the high risk of permanent skin color changes, discoloration, and the risk of burning.
