Dr. Windsor’s approach to treating varicose and spider veins includes the consideration of any other underlying causes to ensure an ideal treatment plan for optimal results. His laser vein removal treatment is non-invasive and creates scar tissue that closes the vein, and cuts off the blood supply to the veins without causing any harm to the skin.
The loss of blood supply to the affected veins causes the veins to disappear over time. Dr. Windsor’s Alpharetta patients are consistently satisfied with the gentle fading process as their veins become less visible and disappear over time.
Spider and varicose veins can cause significant discomfort and self-esteem issues in those affected. For some patients, lifestyle changes may be beneficial, whereas for other patients laser treatment offers a more permanent solution. The benefits include:
Dr. Windsor will create a laser vein removal treatment plan that is unique to your needs. A number of treatment sessions may be needed depending on the treatment area, and the type of veins that are being treated.

Trilogy Med Spa’s laser therapy is one of the safer treatment options available for visible veins. It is, however, important to know that this too comes with the possibility of risks and side effects, including swelling, a burning sensation, and changes in skin color in the treated area. These risks and side effects are severely minimized when working with an experienced and suitably qualified physician.
Why do veins become visible?
Veins usually become visible when they are damaged due to weakened one-way valves in the vein. This causes a blockage that results in the accumulation of blood that leads to consistent increased pressure against the vein wall which makes it more visible beneath the skin surface.
Are the laser treatment results permanent?
Laser vein removal closes off the blood supply to the visible spider veins and varicose veins. Thus, the treatment results are permanent as the visible veins slowly start to fade away over time.
