Dr. Pearl has expanded his aesthetic service to include laser removal of spider veins. Laser removal is an easy, fast, and effective way to treat superficial veins. Advances in technology have helped to develop many different lasers which use focused beams of light. In the treatment of spider veins, the wavelength of light is targeted to the pigment in the blood. The laser heats up the small vein and destroys it. The laser beam is focused and does no damage to the nearby skin tissue. Over a period of four to six weeks, the vein is reabsorbed by the body and disappears. Small spider veins often are cleared after one treatment, but sometimes Dr. Pearl will need to repeat the treatment after 4 weeks. There is a possibility of recurrence after the treatment is complete that may require more treatment. Dr. Pearl will make a determination if you are a good candidate and render treatment on the initial consultation.
With lasers treatment there might be some swelling that will disappear within a few days, you might experience some discolored skin in the areas that have been treated, but this fades in 10-14 days.
