Laser Vein Removal
The laser will shoot a concentrated beam of light that passes through your surface skin and is preferentially absorbed by the hemoglobin in the vein. When the light is absorbed, it is converted to heat, a process that is similar to what happens inside a car that has been sitting in the sun. In addition, as the sun shines light into the car, the light is absorbed by the seats, wheel, and dashboard. It is then converted to heat, making them hot to the touch. The same happens to the vein. As the vein is gently heated (a process that occurs in 50 milliseconds or 1/20th of a second), the walls of the vein collapse and thus blood flow is stopped. Over a period of three to four weeks, the vein reabsorb by the body and disappears.
The use of a laser for vein removal
requires knowledge and expertise. Our staff train to use the best laser and the proper settings for each size vein. During your treatment, you will feel a slight tingling sensation as the laser fires. The skin above the veins will have a reddish, cat-scratch appearance. This generally disappears over the next two days. Sometimes we apply a local anesthetic cream over the proposed treatment area if you find the sensation is uncomfortable. You can expect to return immediately to your normal daily activities, although we do recommend elevation of the treated areas that day to enhance the treatment’s success.
So happy I decided to start laser hair removal here! Malahat was so sweet and made me feel comfortable despite how awkward lasering certain parts of your body may be. It’s evident that she’s experienced and knows exactly what she’s doing.
The clinic is also very clean and is taking the proper precautions which made me feel very comfortable.
I’ve only done one session so far and have already noticed a decrease in hair growth. Can’t wait for my next session!
So helpful and answered all my questions. Knows exactly how gentle to be. Very clean environment, spacious, and always a great vibe! Great suggestions on lashes that fit my face perfectly!

How does laser vein removal work?
A laser is a device that sends a thin beam of radiation in the form of light. Laser surgery closes and shrinks the varicose vein and causes scar tissue within the vessel. This seals off the vein. Blood then flows through other nearby veins instead.
How long does laser vein removal last?
How long does it take? For laser treatment of the veins treated through the skin, the amount of time varies. The amount of time can vary from 15 minutes to one hour depending on the size of the area being treated as well as the severity of the problem.
Is laser vein removal permanent?
The laser ablation, microphlebectomy and vein stripping are also permanent treatment options. In these procedures, the vein is either ablated or surgically removed so it cannot return. However, these big veins might have been hiding smaller veins, or spider veins.
