The leg vein clearance procedure.
We will perform your non-invasive leg vein clearance treatment using the powerful Icon Aesthetic System, which is extremely effective in treating a wide range of issues – including leg veins. Dr. Scarpidis considers it to be the ideal option for addressing veins, because it’s capable of reducing the unsightly blemishes without doing any damage to the surrounding skin. The procedure works by sending concentrated laser light directly into the problematic vein. The light is then absorbed by the blood and directed into the blood vessels, causing them to disintegrate naturally and restoring your vein-free skin.
You can expect the entire procedure to be virtually pain-free, with very few side effects. Though some patients do experience minor discomfort while the laser is being applied, it will not prohibit you from resuming your normal activities immediately after treatment. It’s also normal for the treatment area to be slightly red and warm after the procedure, though these effects will disappear very quickly. In general, most of our patients will experience visible improvement in the appearance of their veins after just one 30-minute treatment, with many requiring multiple sessions to completely clear the veins.
What to expect after your procedure
Although you’ll be able to resume your normal daily routine immediately after your leg vein clearance treatment, you will need to follow aftercare guidelines to ensure an optimal outcome. You should avoid hot baths and hot showers, as well as strenuous exercise, for at least two weeks to maintain your results and prevent any complications from occurring.
