Vein appointments last between 15-30 mins depending on the treatment area. Actual treatment times may vary. Laser Hair Removal appointment times vary greatly, ranging between 15 min – 1 hour.
Vein treatments are performed by physicians. Laser Hair Removal treatments may be administered by Registered Nurses, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, or physicians.
Each time the pulses of light are delivered to your skin, you will feel a mild and temporary stinging sensation similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin. During the procedure, the laser’s chilled tip protects the superficial layers of the skin from heat damage and the cooling effect reduces discomfort.
1064 Yag treatments are very safe when performed by highly trained physicians like those you will find at Timeless. For laser hair removal specifically, this is the laser of choice for patients with darker skin. Lasers work by sending pulses of light through the skin to target pigment, and with the 1064 Yag we don’t risk damaging the surface of the skin because of the deep penetration of the light.
During your treatment, your medical provider will first use the chilled tip of the laser to cool the treatment area and protect the skin. Following that, the laser will pulse, which will be followed by a mild and temporary stinging sensation similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin. This sensation will dissipate quickly.
For laser hair removal, you should begin to notice a reduction in hair growth following each treatment, however a minimum of 5 treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart are typically needed for truly effective results. For laser vein treatments, multiple treatments may be needed depending on the depth and type of veins being treated.
No. You can resume your daily activities immediately following treatment. If you are using the 1064 Yag to treat veins, following treatment you may experience bruising, redness, grayness, or elevation of the treated veins. This is normal during the healing process and will change over the next 6-8 weeks. If facial veins are treated, the healing process is much quicker and should be complete in 1 week.
Anyone with unwanted hair that is not grey, light red or white, is a candidate for laser hair removal. The hair in the treatment area must be dark in color in order for the laser to be effective. Vein therapy is appropriate for most patients.

The 1064 Nd Yag Laser allows the precise treatment of visible blood vessels, broken capillaries, spider veins, vascular lesions, discolorations of the skin and unwanted hair for all skin types.
The 1064 Nd Yag Laser uses a wavelength of light to harmlessly penetrate the top layer of the skin. It works to target dilated blood vessels and hair follicles. Blood vessels are broken apart to be naturally absorbed by the body and leaky blood vessels are sealed. Hair grows in cycles spaced about 6-8 weeks apart, and we target the follicles in each growth phase. The laser works by disabling the hair root and impeding future growth.
