CoolGlide Vein Therapy Candidates
Whether you hate wearing shorts because of tiny spider veins or varicose veins, or have had enough of the tiny red capillary veins that become visible on the tip and sides of the nose, CoolGlide vein therapy can help you. Some laser-based treatments cannot help patients with very dark skin; however, CoolGlide is proven to be effective on all skin tones. In short, almost anyone who wishes to eliminate veins on the face or legs is a candidate for this treatment. Dr. Silverstein can help to determine whether this treatment will benefit you.
How Does CoolGlide Vein Therapy Work?
Before this treatment is performed, a topical anesthetic is administered to ensure your comfort. Next, a special device delivers pulses of light energy directly to the vein, without affecting surrounding skin tissue. This causes the blood within the vein to coagulate, or change to a semisolid state. This eventually destroys the vein. Your body will absorb the coagulated blood vessel, resulting in a clearer, more youthful appearance.
Most patients begin to see improvements within two to six weeks of having undergone CoolGlide vein therapy. In some cases, it may take several months for your body to completely absorb the treated veins.
To achieve the desired effect, multiple treatments may be recommended. Especially dark or deep veins may require more than one treatment to eliminate. If you wish to eliminate a large number of veins, you will most likely have to undergo multiple treatments. These treatments are generally performed three to four weeks apart.
With just a bit of patience, this painless treatment can clear your skin of unwanted veins – with virtually no downtime! In fact, you are encouraged to resume your normal day-to-day activities as soon as you leave our office. You may experience mild swelling immediately after treatment, but this typically subsides within 24 hours. During that time, patients are usually advised to avoid strenuous exercise. Depending on your specific condition, you may be able to time your treatment so that you are able to head to the beach without worrying about spider veins, or have photographs taken of your clearer, healthier looking complexion.
