Laser Vein Treatment in Miami, FL
For some people, the unsightly appearance of red and purple veins makes them feel self-conscious about wearing shorts, dresses and skirts. Varicose veins are often caused by abnormalities of underlying valves that need to be corrected. In addition to their discomfort regarding physical appearance, many struggle with heavy-feeling legs, swelling, fatigue and even pain. At Miami Dermatology and Laser Institute, we perform sclerotherapy and laser treatments on those living in and around Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Kendall, FL, to reduce your varicose veins and have you looking and feeling your best.
What Are Laser Vein Treatments?
Laser vein treatments enable the removal of unwanted small and large spider veins in the legs. Our medical team will use their extensive knowledge and experience to ensure the best cosmetic outcome. We utilize both the most effect laser technology and injection sclerotherapy, depending on the diameter and location of the veins that are to be treated.
Our state-of-the-art pulsed dye lasers and vascular lasers may be used to destroy blood vessels in the skin. These lasers deliver energy to the skin that is absorbed by blood vessels and other vascular lesions. Multiple treatments are usually required to achieve optimal results.
If a vein disappears after treatment, it may not return for a long period of time or indefinitely. In some cases, the body reopens the vessel before it is completely reabsorbed or the vessel only partially responds. Since many of the factors that contributed to developing enlarged veins may not change, such as standing for long periods of time, hormones, pregnancies, menopause, overweight, or a family history of varicose veins, new veins may form over time that will require treatment in the future.
The expert board-certified dermatologists at Miami Dermatology and Laser Institute have extensive experience in treating leg veins with sclerotherapy and lasers and will evaluate which is the optimal treatment for each individual patient. In many cases, combination therapy may be recommended to deliver the best results.
