Is laser treatment painful?
During treatment, you might feel a slight tingling sensation or a feeling similar to a rubber band snapping on your wrist as the laser travels over your skin. A local anesthetic can be used to numb the area. The lasers used today have a built-in safety mechanism that prevents the tip of the laser from damaging your skin.
Are there any preparations that I need to make before my vein treatment procedure?
There are a few things to consider before your vein removal appointment. Avoid aspirin or other blood thinners before treatment. It is also suggested that you refrain from drinking any alcohol for at least a week before your appointment. Sun exposure should be avoided. If you work outside, be sure to apply a good sunscreen at all times.
