Hey gorgeous, glad to see you here again. We hope your summer has been going well, we know ours has. Lately, many of our clients have been scheduling appointments for various treatments and we couldn’t be more thrilled! Since summer means skin, a popular treatment as of late is our vein removal treatment.
And you know we use the best equipment to do so: Cynosure Elite IQ.
The appearance of enlarged and discolored veins known as spider veins on your legs can cause distress and make one feel self-conscious. Some people are more prone to these veins than others depending on certain conditions and circumstances that may put you at higher risk for developing varicose veins. Some of these include pregnancy, being overweight, or a genetic predisposition, which can lead to unsightly, visible veins that cause those living with them unease when the affected area is exposed. Thankfully, laser vein therapy with the Cynosure Elite IQ can help get rid of them!
What is Cynosure Elite IQ?
During laser vein therapy, the targeted vein will be closed off by being zapped by bursts of high-intensity light. No incisions are used, so there is no risk of scarring. Usually, more than 1 laser treatment session is needed to see optimal results, and are scheduled every 6-12 weeks, or as recommended by your doctor.
The Cynosure Elite IQ is available today and is designed to provide clients with the best results. It is packed with the most advanced technology in laser vein therapy. Along with laser vein therapy, Cynosure Elite IQ also treats other skin concerns, including laser hair removal. The patented melanin reader keeps patient safety in mind with its robust design while being the leading industry solution for vein removal.
Unlike other treatments for spider veins, the Cynosure Elite IQ requires no injectable needles or surgery. Our aesthetician directs the laser’s energy at the pigment in your veins. The laser’s heat bypasses your skin and other tissues to target the veins themselves. Once exposed to the laser, your veins constrict and evaporate. After just one treatment, you’ll notice that your skin is clearer and may even be vein-free with no damage whatsoever.
Does vein removal hurt?
The sensation of the laser’s energy targeting your vein is similar to being snapped with a rubber band. Most patients express feeling a slight tingle during the treatment. The aesthetician working with you at Biologi Spa will apply a cool numbing gel to the targeted areas to help with any possible discomfort. In addition, Cynosure Elite features air-cooling to keep your skin at a comfortable temperature during laser therapy. After each session, your skin may look and even feel slightly sunburnt. However, your skin returns to normal within hours to days.
Can I get vein removal?
Individuals who are bothered by the appearance of visible veins on their legs can often benefit from laser vein therapy with the Cynosure Elite IQ. However, there are many factors that can impact candidacy, including age and overall health, the extent of your varicose veins, and your symptoms. If you would like to know if you are a good candidate, contact our office today to schedule a consultation with us.
What areas can be treated?
Popular treatment areas include the face, underarms, arms, legs, back, bikini, chest, and more!
How long are treatments?
Treatments can take from just 5-60 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. Many patients chat with our aestheticians or listen to music during treatment.
How many vein removal treatments are needed?
A series of treatments may be needed to fully clear blood vessels and reduce the appearance of the veins completely. Typically, 1 to 4 sessions are needed for desired results. You may see improvement after just one session or may require a series of up to 4 treatments to get the clear skin you desire. Gradual results can often be seen over time, and multiple treatments are often needed for the best outcomes. Slight swelling or redness may occur temporarily. There is no downtime required after laser vein therapy, and patients can return to their normal daily routines as soon as they feel comfortable. Compression stockings may need to be worn for about a week following treatment. Work with your provider to develop a plan that is right for you. We are here to support your desired results.
What type of result from vein removal treatments can I expect?
Many patients experience immediate improvement in the appearance of their veins following the treatment followed by continued improvement over the next week or so.
