Leg Vein Removal

Laser vein removal non-invasive alternative to sclerotherapy for the clearing of spider veins and reticular veins, with no incisions, minimal discomfort and no downtime.  GentleYAG leg vein removal uses laser technology, directing powerful yet gentle light-based energy directly into the skin. The laser targets the vein, causing the blood inside it to coagulate. Over time, the vein collapses and eventually disappears.  Because the laser energy is directed toward the vein, the surrounding tissue remains unharmed.





On average, a series of 3 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart is recommended for optimal results.



  • Avoid sun exposure before and during any stages of treatment for a minimum of 2 weeks.



Laser therapy for vein removal takes around 15 minutes per treatment area.   During your treatment, the laser will target individual veins and send pulses of energy that will heat and eventually collapse the vein. You may feel a heating sensation and slight pinches in the vein itself, but the treatment is not normally painful for most clients.



  • You can resume your normal activities immediately after your laser therapy session, but avoid strenuous exercise for 5 to 7 days after your treatment. Avoid sun exposure for a minimum of 2 weeks after the treatment.
  • Avoid extremely hot showers, hot tubs and saunas for at least 1 week after treatment.
  • Over the following weeks, the treated veins may become temporarily darker as a result of their collapse. This is a normal part of vein therapy. They also may stiffen up and cause momentary soreness. Eventually, the vein should fade from view, leaving your skin clear.
