Consulation and Evaluation
First you will:

  • Discuss your specific goals with Dr. Swier
  • Evaluate whether these goals are realistic
  • Have a physical exam
  • Learn the likely outcomes and potential risks of the procedure
  • Get a course of treatment recommended by Dr. Swier
  • Ask questions and get answers to help you understand the process

Be sure to:

  • Openly share your expectations
  • Disclose your complete health history, current medications, and use of vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco and drugs as they may interfere with or alter the treatment
  • Commit to precisely follow all of Dr. Swier’s instructions

Any vessels and blood denatured by the laser will be reabsorbed by your body over a period of time in a natural cleansing process. Capillaries may become inflamed at first and later will become invisible. Your skin will be sensitive to ultraviolet light and you must avoid direct sun exposure. Many of the conditions treated by the laser will have been caused by sun exposure, so avoiding the sun will prolong your youthful appearance. It’s important to follow Dr. Swier’s directions after treatment and to use skin products he recommends. You will be told to avoid exercising, hot spicy foods, hot baths, saunas and hot tubs for two weeks as they may cause the treated veins to reopen.
