The days of living with unsightly veins on your legs or face are finally over. Exciting new advances in cosmetic laser dermatology can now virtually eliminate those veins for good! At North Okanagan Skin & Laser we treat veins using our Cynosure Elite iQ laser which is specifically designed to diminish the appearance of small leg and facial spider veins or deeper blue veins which can be caused by pregnancy, genetics, hormones or aging. No more painful injections!

How Does It Work?
The laser delivers pulses of light energy which causes the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel, which is then reabsorbed by your body. After the treatment, an improvement is apparent immediately. Redness and some mild swelling may occur after the treatment but typically lasts 12-24 hours.
Unlike sclerotherapy, there are no needles when treating veins with laser, only a mild prickly sensation. To ensure client comfort, we use a clear gel and cold air during the treatment and cool gel packs afterwards. The number of treatments depends on the size, colour and quantity of the veins being treated but on average, one to three sessions are required.
