Dr. Ben Light offers laser vein reduction to reduce or eliminate spider veins and vascular lesions on the face and body. In as few as one or three sessions, patients can enjoy significant improvement and more attractive skin. Laser vein reduction has helped many patients at our practice in Decatur, Alabama enhance their self-confidence and improve their appearance.
THE LASER VEIN REDUCTION PROCEDURE
Our practice utilizes the advanced Vbeam Perfecta laser system, known for its state-of-the-art technology that enables the laser beam to penetrate deep beneath the skin without sacrificing patient safety and comfort. The heat energy from the laser beam causes the blood in the spider vein to clot. Once the blood flow is stopped, the vein closes and begins to shrink. Blood flow is redirected to healthy veins. Over the next few weeks, the spider veins reduce as it is safely processed by the body.
LASER VEIN REDUCTION BENEFITS
Laser vein reduction at our practice is safe and highly effective for most patients. The time of each session varies and depends on extent of treatment desired.
