What can I expect during the procedure?
The treatment feels like a rubber band snapping accompanied by a burst of cooling gas.
Anesthetic cream is usually applied before the procedure to numb the treatment area. Any
discomfort can be eased with the application of cold compresses afterwards.
How can I prepare for treatment?
If you have a history of cold sores, please notify your Singapore dermatologist. Excessive sun
exposure should be avoided 1 -2 weeks before and after treatment.
What can I expect after treatment?
The treated veins will become less obvious after 1 -2 weeks. Side effects are few and may include
redness, swelling, blistering and bruise in the treated area - these usually do not last more than
few days. Permanent side effects are rare. However be sure to consult your doctor when in doubt.
