At Rigor Dermatology & Laser Center, we offer non-invasive laser vein therapy for patients in Pasadena, CA as well as throughout the Los Angeles, CA area. Laser vein therapy treats spider veins and varicose veins caused by venous reflux, which occurs when blood backflows, pooling and creating vein swelling and weakening. Laser vein therapy closes or destroys damaged veins, allowing the body to reroute the blood through healthier veins.
Dr. Rigor performs laser vein therapy through the excel V™, AcuTip, VariLite, excel HR™ and VariLite laser systems. These specialized laser systems provide superior laser energy that improves the appearance of your skin. Damaged veins treated through these methods fade and disappear.
Individual treatment plans will specify types of lasers used, treatment length, and the number of treatments needed. Topical anesthesia may be administered for comfort, as small bursts of laser energy can create a sensation similar to snapping the skin with a rubber band. There is no downtime after laser vein therapy.
