When we initially tell patients about laser therapy, the first question they often ask is “Is laser therapy painful?” Read on to learn more about laser therapy and what you can expect when you undergo it.
How Laser Therapy Works
RenewMD is pleased to use the Genesis xeo® Laser to help patients minimize the appearance of small to medium-sized veins as well as rosacea and broken capillaries. So, how exactly does this laser work? Good question! It generates short-pulsed heats to instantly constrict the vessels.
When this happens, the vein becomes less visible on the surface of the skin. The more laser therapy treatments you receive, the more noticeable the results you’ll see. Typically, we recommend 1 to 3 treatments to allow patients to achieve optimal results.
The best part about laser therapy is that it is quick and virtually painless. Most patients report minimal to no discomfort and receive it on their lunch break in only 30 minutes. They state that it feels like a warm sensation and some patients find it to be quite relaxing. While you may face a bit of redness, it will likely fade away on its own within a few hours.
You’ll be able to resume work and your daily activities right away. However, we’ll encourage you to wear sunscreen to protect your sensitive skin after each treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Therapy?
If you have spider veins, broken capillaries, rosacea, or other veins on your face, you may benefit from laser therapy. The Genesis xeo® Laser is completely safe for all skin types and can effectively clear up your complexion with no pain or downtime. It has been proven to be the ideal treatment for veins and can do wonders for your self-esteem and quality of life.
I have always been treated well with kindness and care. The only thing I’d like is that the attendants would stay. Maybe if their offer was better they would have such a turn around.
