Leg Vein Treatment
How does Leg Vein Treatment with elōs™ work?
What results can one expect from the treatment?
The leg vein hand piece combines safe and effective levels of laser and radio frequency (electric current) energies to remove leg veins and other unwanted vessels. Both laser and radio frequency have been used separately for decades in medicine and surgery, but the leg vein hand piece exclusively combines light and electric energy for ideal treatment outcomes – improve leg veins and vascular lesions with a very low risk of side effects.
The Leg Vein treatment can improve unsightly leg veins, facial spider veins and other unwanted vascular lesions. Spider veins and larger blue-green vessels on legs will gradually fade and can be treated until patient satisfaction has been reached. How many treatments are required? Most patients will have between 1-3 treatments. Some vessels may require more than 3 treatment sessions.
How often are treatments done?
Treatment sessions are typically 6-8 weeks apart. Smaller spider veins may be treated every 4 weeks.
How is treatment tolerated by the patient?
The sensation may be described as a “hot pinch”. Patients tolerate treatment well by use of either cooling the skin during treatment and/or use of a topical anesthetic cream that numbs the skin.
Is Laser Vein treatment safe?
ANY medical laser procedure has risk of side effects such as superficial blistering, crusting, and pigmentary changes in the skin. These risks are rare and usually quickly resolved. The Leg Vein treatment incorporates several technological advances that focus on patient safety to minimize these risks and provide greater satisfaction. The laser handpiece is also cooled for skin protection and comfort during the procedure.
Who should be treated?
Anyone with unwanted leg veins or vascular lesions may be a candidate for treatment. Removal of vascular lesions and veins with elōs™ technology (laser and radio frequency) is a safe and effective alternative for patients who want non-invasive approach to vascular treatment. The treatment is the clear choice for patients who do not like needles or who have had adverse reaction to solutions that are injected into the vein during Sclerotherapy.
