Dr. Sam Speron Says Winter Time Is A Great Opportunity For Laser Vein Removal Treatments

Park Ridge, IL (PRWEB) December 19, 2012

Dr. Sam Speron says winter time is a great opportunity for laser vein removal treatments. Laser vein removal is now a very common procedure that many men and women have been opting for in order to treat their spider and varicose veins. The presence of spider or varicose veins can be frustrating and may be caused by genetics, weight gain (especially obesity), pregnancy, sun exposure, lack of exercise or hormonal changes.

Usually laser treatments are more dangerous when patients are exposing their skin the the sun before laser sessions. Usually it is recommended that a patient avoid tanning or tanning beds for 2-4 weeks before a laser treatment. Failure to do so can result in an increased chance of getting a burn from the laser therapy. This is obviously less of a concern during the wintertime, unless of course, there is a vacation or prolonged sun exposure in the picture.

“I definitely recommend laser vein removal in the winter time over summer treatments. This doesn't mean we do not perform laser vein treatments in the summer months but patients have to be more honest and careful. If they have been tanning, it is always safer to delay the laser therapy,” says Dr. Sam Speron, Chicago plastic surgeon and consumer advocated. “Machines for laser vein removal are now more advanced and more effective while causing less pain. Laser removal is a great option for removal of both spider veins and varicose veins up to 1cm in size. However, safety is always our #1 concern!”

Laser vein removal is usually fast and effective. Patients are advised to avoid any type of sun exposure and photosensitive medication for at least two weeks prior to treatment in order to minimize chances of burning. Treatments are usually spanned out 6-8 weeks apart. Usually there is minimal pain associated with the treatments; however, a topical numbing anesthetic can be prescribed if a patient has a lower pain tolerance. Also, a chiller (that blows cold air) is used at our medical spa to minimize any discomfort.

The laser vein removal treatment works by targeting the spider veins and then proceeding to cauterize the vein which after being closed off it will be reabsorbed by the body. When it comes to varicose veins, the laser treatment has been found effective in shrinking the size. Furthermore, laser vein removal has been found to be more effective, faster and a less painful way of removing the veins compared to sclerotherapy.
