The laser specifically targets superficial blood vessels or deeper blue veins. The light energy of the laser is absorbed by the vessel causing inflammation and closure. Typically this treatment feels like the snapping of a rubber band with a strong heat sensation. We use a cooling system that allows cold air to comfort the skin for optimum patient satisfaction. Immediately after treatment there may be some redness which typically lasts 1-2 hours. Any side effects are temporary and the return to regular activity is immediate with no down time.
