Laser Spider Vein Treatments Available for Valdosta, South Georgia and North Central Florida
At her plastic surgery center in Valdosta, Georgia, spider vein treatments can be performed by Dr. Merriman either by administering localized injections, called sclerotherapy, or by laser treatments. The treatments can improve spider veins and broken vessels that commonly appear on legs and facial areas.
During laser treatment with Dr. Merriman and her staff at her plastic surgery center in Valdosta, a laser is applied to the skin over your spider veins. Laser energy causes your spider veins to coagulate and shrink. Laser therapy is most effective for small and medium size spider veins. Larger spider veins are treated more effectively by Dr. Merriman with sclerotherapy injections.
Laser treatment is also effective for patients who have facial spider veins. Laser treatment may cause minor bruising that usually improves within a week, but often, recovery is immediate. Two to four treatments may be required to achieve your desired result. Immediately following treatment, you will be able to apply makeup.
