Enjoy a Non-Surgical Solution to Visible Veins

While surgery was once the only solution to the presence of visible veins, Dr. Mark Fisher is now proud to offer laser vein treatment. This non-surgical solution is as quick and easy as it is effective, giving our patients a comfortable pathway to the healthy skin they once enjoyed. While most visible veins are merely a cosmetic issue, they can worsen if left unaddressed, eventually becoming painful and unsightly in equal measure. To learn more about how laser vein treatment can help you avoid this condition, reach out and set up your consultation at our Westport location today.

Dr. Mark Fisher Intro

Avoiding Painful Varicose Veins

One of the main reasons we recommend addressing visible veins as early as possible is that they can worsen if left untreated. Also known as “telangiectasia,” these so-called spider veins can eventually become more raised and gnarled in their appearance. This condition is referred to as varicose veins, and can present a new set of complications:

  • Aching
  • Burning
  • Cramping
  • Lesions
  • Itching
  • Swelling
  • Tingling

The Cause of Visible Veins

When functioning properly, your veins are quietly and invisibly transporting blood all throughout your body. When they fail to function as they’re supposed to, though, these veins can become backed up. This causes them to swell and sometimes even break, which makes them visible beneath the surface of your skin.

This can be caused by a number of factors. Sometimes pressure or weather damage can cause visible veins on the face and nose. In other cases, it can simply be brought on by the natural aging process. While veins that are simply visible without being raised are not painful, they can be cosmetically undesirable.

Your Laser Vein Treatment with Dr. Fisher

Laser vein treatment is a great way to enjoy clear skin once again, without having to undergo an invasive surgical procedure or deal with any kind of recovery period. Pulses of laser energy will be delivered into your treatment area, penetrating your skin without breaking it. This laser energy will heat up problematic veins in a way that causes them to shrink in size and eventually collapse and can do so without impacting or damaging any of the healthy tissues nearby.

Enjoying Your Ideal Results

Most treatments take only 20 to 40 minutes per session, and the procedure is surprisingly comfortable, considering how effective it is. You’ll experience a warm sensation with some slight pinching, but this will be the extent of your discomfort. Your body will naturally break down and dispose of the destroyed veins.

No two patients are the same, and your ability to enjoy your ideal results will depend upon the specifics of your treatment area, and how advanced your condition has become. While some patients are able to enjoy visible results after just a single treatment, others require a series of two to six treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart.
