*Spider veins are the thread-like veins seen on the surface of the skin. Varicose veins are larger veins which will often bulge from the skin. Although most commonly seen in the legs, veins may be present on the face and other parts of the body as well. We can erase these veins by lasers and/or sclerotherapy. The laser produces a beam of light which is selectively absorbed by the hemoglobin in the vein; thereby, minimizing damage to the surrounding skin. Sclerotherapy uses chemicals to effectively glue the vein shut.
There is virtually no down time. Multiple treatments may be necessary for optimal results.

Is vein therapy safe?
Yes, if done under the guidance of a trained physician with the proper equipment. The laser beam targets only the hemoglobin in the veins, essentially sparing the remainder of the skin. This selective technology allows for the high level of safety in this procedure. Sclerotherapy involves very tiny needles that put medicine to seal the vein.
Are there any side effects?
You are able to continue with your normal day immediately after treatment, however for leg veins only you are advised to use ace bandages after treatment. Your skin may appear slightly red after the treatment, a small amount of healing/scabbing may persist for some patients. Afterwards, clear & beautiful vein free skin is the goal.
How does the laser work?
The laser specifically targets the hemoglobin in veins. The heat generated from this process safely closes the vein.
How much time does the procedure take?
The time it takes depends on the amount of area being treated.
Is laser therapy painful?
At worst, some patients describe a feeling of a rubber band snapping against their skin with laser therapy. At Gambhir Cosmetics we have a few ways of minimizing any discomfort to ensure a relaxing experience. Our lasers have a specialized cooling device built in, which makes the procedure much more comfortable. We also offer to prescribe topical anesthetic so not much discomfort is felt at all.
How many treatments are needed?
The number of treatments vary with the body area and vein type being treated.
Where are we located?
We have offices in King of Prussia and Exton Pennsylvania. We serve the greater Philadelphia area, but we draw patients from New York to Maryland to Harrisburg.
