The number of treatments necessary depends on the number, color, and size of the vessels being treated. During the consultation process you will be prescribed a treatment plan that will aim to give you the best result.
Most patients experience only mild discomfort much like a rubber band snapping. No local anesthesia or pain medication is required. Following the treatment, there is usually no pain to minimal discomfort.
Results vary, but most patients experience significant improvement within two to six weeks of treatment. With smaller vessels you may see immediate results. Final results may not be apparent for several months.
