Spider veins may be harmless, but they can make some people feel self-conscious. If you’re one of them, we have a minimally-invasive solution for that – Vasculaze.
What is Vasculaze?
Vasculaze is is one of the non-invasive procedures offered at Premier Surgical Vascular & Vein Center in Knoxville to treat common leg and facial blemishes. It’s a specialized diode laser treatment that can be used for vein issues like spider veins and vascular lesions like angiomas.
How does it work?
With the Vasculaze procedure, light pulses are administered to the pigmented hemoglobin in visible veins or lesions. This causes them to break up and fade over time.
During the treatment, your vein specialist will use a specialized handpiece. This special device emits laser light energy pulses to the pigment in your visible veins. The treated veins die and eventually, absorbed by the body as waste. The blood then reroutes to healthier veins.
What can you expect after Vasculaze?
Although many patients would need three or more treatment sessions to start seeing significant results, you would notice gradual improvement even after your first session.
Make sure that you protect the treated area from the sun by wearing sunscreen or protective clothing. Our vein specialist can advise you when you can resume your regular physical activities.
How many sessions does it take to see significant improvements?
The total number of treatments needed will depend on several factors, including the severity of your vein issues and the areas to be treated. Our vein specialist will assess your problem sites and will recommend the number of treatment sessions you may need.
Do the results last?
Improvements from Vasculaze are essentially considered permanent. However, there are certain factors that may change that such as weight gain and pregnancy.
Who can benefit from Vasculaze?
Anyone who is concerned with the appearance of his/her spider veins and other prominent leg veins can benefit from Vasculaze. It can also benefit those with vascular lesions.
