Start Your Leg Enhancement This Winter
Beautiful Legs By Spring. Enhance Your Legs This Winter With Varicose and Spider Vein Removal and Cellulite Reduction Treatments

Have Beautiful Legs By Spring. Enhance Your Legs This Winter With Varicose and Spider Vein Removal and Cellulite Reduction Treatments

We’ve been having some nasty weather in the Atlanta area, and we’re pretty sure you haven’t been wearing shorts and mini-skirts outside. But once January and February are crossed off the calendar, and the daffodils start to bloom, you’ll be thinking Spring. And that means that Spring Break at the beach is just around the corner. So now is the perfect time to start thinking about doing away with those varicose or spider veins. Lasermed Skin and Vein Clinic knows that right now you probably are more at ease with those unsightly veins because they are safely tucked under pants, heavy tights, and long skirts, but for most of you we’d guess you are self-conscious about them in public once the leggings come off.

Why Should I Eliminate Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins, in addition to the negative aesthetic perspective, can potentially become painful and lead to more serious health issues as a result of inflammation of varicose veins, including:

  • Throbbing, burning, aching and fatique
  • Venous leg ulcers
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Spider veins
  • Poor circulation

The skin protecting the varicose veins is also vulnerable to injury from an exterior force, leading to a ruptured vein. Significant bruising and blood loss may result.

At LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic in Johns Creek, we offer a range of innovative, effective and safe treatments for the removal of varicose and spider veins, and reduction of visible cellulite. We use the advanced technology Cooltouch CTEV device which emits 1320nm wavelength laser beams and heat the water content in the vein walls rather than blood cells. Other devices that have shorter wavelength heat too much heating of the blood cells and caused severe bruising and discomfort as well as longer healing time. Sclerotherapy, which is injections of a gentle solution using an acupuncture-sized needle into the blood vessels, can be used for less invasive varicose veins and spider vein treatment. This irritates the inside of the vessel and causes them to shrink and slowly disappear.

To combat the appearance of cellulite on thighs, buttocks and hips, LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic recommends a series of FIT laser treatments in conjunction with the groundbreaking new Resolution Cellulite® System creams and cleanser to maintain the FIT skin tightening effects and minimize the bumpy appearance of cellulite.

These effective and time efficient treatments can produce optimal results, with little to minimal bruising and discomfort, and by targeting your recovery during the winter months, by the time you’re ready to ditch your cover ups, your legs will be too.

Why is Winter Better for Leg Enhancement Treatments?

LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic stands at the forefront of treatment options for beautiful and healthy legs.  Dr. Chapman feels winter is the perfect time to start your summer leg shape up regimen, which includes treating varicose veins, spider veins and cellulite, for a number of reasons.

Maximum Effectiveness May Require Multiple Treatment Sessions. Usually more than one treatment is required for reduction of veins and cellulite, so the entire process may take between 2 to 4 months for the full effects of the treatment to be visible, although immediate reduction of veins may be evident directly after treatment. Using sclerotherapy, spider and flat blue veins require 1-2 treatments with injection therapy. Varicose veins typically need 1-2 treatments using sclerotherapy for total resolution. Laser technology may necessitate 3 or more sessions for full eradication, depending on severity and amount of veins affected, although the procedure is more effective and is considered more comfortable. Laser treatments should be scheduled between 2 to a maximum of 4 weeks apart. When using Resolution Cellulite System as recommended in conjunction with a series of FIT laser treatments for the most effective reduction in the appearance of cellulite, immediate tightening and lifting is visible, although a series of treatments is recommended for the best outcome, approximately 2 weeks apart. Because of the time factor, Dr. Chapman recommends you start now.

Winter Wardrobes Camouflage any Bruising or Discoloration. After varicose vein reduction therapy, your legs will not look too pretty for a few weeks. The veins tend to look redder and bruised, although usually the veins significantly disappear during the procedure. Bruising usually resolves after a week. With larger varicose veins, the treated veins will harden after treatment, and then become softer and recede from visibility. With particularly large veins, there may be some brown staining for several months. This is a normal and temporary result of iron pigments that remain from the red blood cells decomposing and being carried away by your own immune system.

Cover Up Compression Stockings. The first day after laser varicose vein treatment, an ace bandage will encase the treated area. Compression stockings are then typically worn for a period of 2 or more days following varicose vein removal. These are easy to conceal under cool weather clothes. Why are compression stockings recommended after laser varicose vein treatment? In addition to aiding in the healing process, they further reduce any risk of deep vein thrombosis and reduce the degree of bruising, inflammation, swelling and blood clots.

Cooler Weather Benefits The Healing Process. You may not be aware of this, but warm weather often places additional strain on your veins. If your circulation system is disposed to vein complications or weakened by varicose veins, exposure to heat should be avoided when possible. Removal of varicose veins in the winter provides adequate time to heal prior to experiencing the effects of warm weather on your veins. 

You Will Be Ready for Leg Baring Fashions. If you have been uncomfortable in summertime styles which bare your legs from here to way up there, taking care of your vein issues and diminishing cellulite during the winter will give confidence to exchange sweat pants for shorts.
