I understand that the removal or lightening of dilated superficial veins is a procedure that involves using a laser. Some discomfort may be experienced during laser treatment. I understand that there is a possibility of rare side effects such as scarring or permanent discoloration. Other side effects such as swelling, blistering, crusting, or flaking of the treated area, may require one to three weeks to heal. Once any of these conditions have healed, the treated area may still be sensitive to the sun for an additional two to four weeks, or possibly longer in some patients. During the healing process, there is a slight possibility that the treated area can become either lighter (hypo-pigmentation) or darker (hyper-pigmentation) in color compared to the surrounding skin. This is usually a temporary condition; however, on a rare occasion, it can be permanent. It is IMPORTANT that I follow all post-treatment instructions carefully
I understand that if I’ve had sun exposure or used a tanning bed within a 3-day period pre or post treatment I risk a possible pigment change or blistering
I understand that this procedure involves a laser to coagulate the vessels and a bruising effect could last up to 6 months. It is possible the results will be minimal or not help at all. I realize that each individual’s treatment response is different; therefore it could require multiple treatments to achieve desired results.
I also understand that once I’ve started my treatment program there are no refunds.
