You may experience mild swelling and erythema (redness) from the heat of the treatment, but generally lessens within 24 hours.
You may experience slight discomfort, burning sensation. This should calm down quickly.
You may see an immediate disappearance of the veins treated but in general they can take 4-6 weeks to fade.
Crusting may occur; this is due to tiny rust spots along the treated veins. Do not pick these off as it increases the risk of scarring.
Avoid wearing make up for 12 hours
The risk of hyperpigmentation is very rare. To help prevent this, it is recommended to apply SPF50 sun protection daily from UVA/UVB rays.
