Cynosure Laser Vein Removal

What is Cynosure Laser Vein Removal?

Varicose and spider veins impact a person’s self esteem and confidence whether wearing a pair of shorts or spending time on the beach in a bathing suit. In addition to being unsightly, these veins are sometimes painful. Laser vein removal in Scottsdale, AZ is a non-surgical, clinical procedure used to fade, reduce or eliminate leg, spider or reticular veins. It involves directing pulses of light at the unwanted and unsightly veins. This causes the vein to coagulate and eventually, fade away.

Who is Cynosure Laser Vein Removal for?

Vein removal treatments in Scottsdale are appropriate for women and men between the ages of 30 and 60. Clients who wish to reduce or eliminate the appearance of leg, reticular or spider veins and are not pregnant or breastfeeding are often ideal candidates. This procedure is not appropriate for the treatment of deeper veins. In those cases, sclerotherapy may be the better option. Adam and Eve Medical Aesthetics in Scottsdale conducts a thorough health screening and discusses your goals and expectations to further determine if laser vein removal is the right choice for you. If you have a history of blood clots, are bedridden or wish to treat veins that are usable for a potential future bypass, this option may not be the best choice. Please disclose your full medical history so we can provide you with the best information about your suitability for vein removal treatments.

What Should I Expect after Cynosure Laser Vein Removal?

Definitive results are not immediate and vary depending on individual needs, but over the course of a few weeks, veins will start to disappear and any excess blood will be removed by the natural systems within your body. Two to six treatments, each spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart, are usually necessary to achieve your desired results. Veins that respond to treatment generally do not come back. However, new veins can appear, so follow up treatments may be necessary to address them.

What Does a Cynosure Laser Vein Removal Treatment Consist of?

Laser vein removal with the Cynosure Elite Laser is a relatively safe and effective, non-surgical option for people with unsightly veins. Prepare for your treatment session by following these guidelines. Do not apply lotion to your legs for 24 hours before your appointment. Avoid direct sun exposure for about a month prior to and after treatment. This helps to reduce your chance of developing dark pigmentations at the treated sites. Plan to wear or bring a pair of shorts or a skirt to your appointment as you will need clothing that fits over your compression bandages.

Your vein removal treatment in Scottsdale will typically take 30 minutes or less, but plan to be in our facility for about 45 minutes to allow time for paperwork and any questions. Once you are comfortable in a treatment room, one of our trained clinicians will use the handheld Cynosure Elite Laser to target the unsightly vein, causing blood to coagulate within the vein. Most patients experience little discomfort and describe it as a mild heated and stinging sensation, similar to being flicked with a rubber band. The machine also cycles through cooling bursts to help keep you comfortable.

After your treatment, you may return to work or home as soon as you are comfortable. Avoid exercise that puts pressure on the treated area for a few days. Walking is often recommended, however, as it increases circulation a temporary warm and flushed feeling as well as redness and swelling are normal. Some patients also notice slight bruising which fades within a few weeks. Wear compression stockings during daytime hours for four days after treatment and avoid very hot baths or hot tubs. Please contact our office if you have any questions or concerns.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cynosure Laser Vein Removal

Occurring primarily in the legs and face, spider veins are raised, discolored, and sometimes painful. They are caused by blood pooling in the veins because of venous reflux, a condition in which blood flows away from the heart. While spider veins are usually not a serious health problem, they can make you self-conscious about the appearance of your skin. Laser vein removal can help you feel more confident by reducing the veins’ prominence and improving skin’s appearance.
If you have never had the treatment before, you probably have questions about it. Here is what you need to know about laser vein removal in Scottsdale.

The cost of laser vein removal varies based on the extent of the problem, which determines the number of sessions you require. When considering the cost of the procedure alone, $312 is the national average. However, there are additional fees that can add to the total cost. Here are a few possible examples:
-Surgeon’s fees
-Operating room facilities
-Post-treatment garments
These are not all the possible expenses related to laser vein removal in Scottsdale, and not all expenses may apply. Upon evaluating your condition, we can give you a more specific estimate.

This treatment has been used for decades, over which time it has proven safe and effective. Simple laser treatment is non-invasive because it is performed outside the skin. While recovery from laser vein removal in Scottsdale is typically short, you may have to wear compression stockings afterward. This helps to keep the spider veins from coming back.

While recovery from the procedure is quick, you should take some extra care to protect the site for the first few days following treatment:
– Avoid sun exposure as much as possible and use sunblock with an SPF of 30 to 50 to protect the area when going outside.
– Avoid rough sports, aerobic exercise, massage, and anything that could cause trauma to the site.
– Discontinue application of makeup to the treatment site if there is caking or scaling of the skin, which is likely temporary.
– Avoid flying for 48 hours after treatment.
– Do not use tobacco or drink alcoholic beverages for two days after treatment.
– Do not take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (e.g., ibuprofen or aspirin) for a week after treatment, and ask your doctor about temporarily stopping any prescription anticoagulants.

Laser vein removal in Scottsdale should last for up to two years. You may require one or two annual touchup sessions to keep your skin clear and smooth. While the treated veins may not become symptomatic again, you may develop other spider veins. Fortunately, you can repeat vein removal treatment as necessary.

Most patients report minimal discomfort with the treatment. Laser vein removal can cause some degree of discomfort. This sensation typically only lasts for a few minutes. Some describe a mild burning sensation or compare it to a rubber band snap or a pinprick. A cool compress and aloe can be applied for your comfort after treatment. If you require multiple treatments, the initial treatment is likely to be the most uncomfortable.
The amount of discomfort you experience depends on how sensitive you are to pain in the first place. It may be possible to receive a mild sedative or local anesthetic before the procedure to manage any discomfort.

You need to be a little patient with laser vein removal in Scottsdale because the results are not immediate. You should start seeing improvement within two to six weeks, but this depends on factors such as the size of the veins and the extent of the treatment. Furthermore, you often need more than one treatment to see the full effects. These should each be spaced four to six weeks apart to allow adequate time for healing.

You can typically return to your normal activities shortly after treatment. In fact, you should walk around immediately thereafter to encourage blood flow.
For one to two weeks following the treatment, you may have symptoms at the treatment site resembling mild sunburn: irritation, redness, tenderness, and mild swelling. You can relieve this discomfort using steroid creams or topical lubricants. Cold compresses may also help relieve pain and swelling, but you shouldn’t use ice or a completely frozen pack.

While spider veins have a negative effect on your appearance, there is little to no effect on your general health. For this reason, the removal of spider veins with lasers is considered a cosmetic procedure. Insurance usually only pays for treatments that are medically necessary, meaning that laser vein removal in Scottsdale is usually excluded. However, insurance coverage varies, so you should check your policy to be sure of what it does and doesn’t include.

It usually requires a few visits for spider veins to significantly diminish. For most patients, three treatments provides optimal results.
