Improved treatment options for varicose and spider veins at SAI

legveinsAlthough most varicose and spider veins are harmless that does not mean we want them visible or are not somewhat shy about them. Due to the treatment high demand Dr Clark and his SAI team are constantly evolving their treatment options to make for a more comfortable and efficient result. In the past treatment for varicose veins involved surgery or painful injections with a lottery of result effectiveness. Today at SAI you can undergo varicose leg vein removal with latest technology laser.

How does it work?

StarLux500_158x158At SAI it is important to match patient comfort with result satisfaction and that is why Dr Clark and his team use the Palomar 1064 wavelength to treat leg veins. This wavelength sends energy into the blood and vessel walls, where it is absorbed by haemoglobin. The haemoglobin is heated and the vessel coagulates and closes off. The targeted leg vein then degenerates, and the leg vein will be no longer visible from the surface of the skin.

Explain the treatment?

To effectively treat an entire leg you will be required to undergo approximately six weeks, separated by two-week intervals. Each treatment lasts approximately 30 minutes and you can return to work immediately. The treatment is well tolerated by patients at SAI thanks to our therapist superb technique. Due to the blood vessels being targeted you can expect some bruising after each treatment.

Work with experienced therapists at SAI!

Deeper vessels require a longer wavelength to allow penetration to their depth. Pulse duration must also be matched to the leg vein size; also the larger the vessel diameter, the longer pulse duration will be required to effectively damage and close the visible leg vein. As you can see it is not only important to work with a team that utilizes latest technology to treat leg veins but also an experienced team that understands how to achieve the results you want.
