It can be frustrating to look in the mirror and notice spider veins, rosacea, or other visible veins on your face. If you’re longing for a clearer, more beautiful complexion, laser therapy may be the perfect solution for you. Recently, we’ve had several patients ask us whether laser therapy is safe. Below, we explore the answer to this question.
What is Laser Therapy?
Here at RenewMD, we use the Genesis xeo® Laser to help patients reduce the appearance of small to medium veins and broken capillaries. The laser creates short-pulsed heats, which instantly constrict the vessels.
When this occurs, the vein becomes less visible on the skin’s surface. As you receive more laser therapy sessions, you can expect the treated vein to close down. In most cases, patients require 1 to 3 treatments to enjoy optimal results. Treatments can be completed on your lunch break as they only take 30 minutes. Time after time, laser therapy proves to be the most effective treatment for visible vein removal.
Are There Dangers of Laser Therapy?
After a laser therapy treatment, you may face some redness. Fortunately, this side effect is only temporary and will resolve within a few hours. You may also experience a bit of bruising and swelling but these side effects will also fade fairly quickly.
Immediately after the treatment, you are free to apply sunscreen and makeup to your face. You can also return to work and your other daily responsibilities. The Genesis xeo® Laser is a highly safe procedure with minimal side-effects and downtime.
Good Candidates of Laser Therapy
If you are bothered by spider veins, rosacea, or other visible veins on your face, you may be a great candidate for laser therapy. It can safely and effectively clear up your complexion and allow you to wear less makeup and feel more confident in your own skin. We are pleased to state that the Genesis xeo® Laser is safe for all skin types. Scheduling a consultation is the ideal way to determine whether laser therapy is right for you.
