Will Accent XL treatment effect spider and varicose veins the same as sun exposure?

Doctor Answers 1

Accent for veins

Accent XL is a radiofrequency treatment designed for skin tightening, not a treatment for veins. Hope this helps. Maybe you are thinking of the Harmony XL platform from AlmaLasers, which does have applications for vein treatment. Sun exposure can mask the appearance of veins by darkening the skin, but won't effect the actual vein itself. The gold standard treatment for most leg veins is still sclerotherapy if relatively small, and endovenous catheter treatment or phlebotomy (surgical removal) for large varicose veins.
