Remove Unwanted Vascular Lesions And Spider Veins

Laser vein treatment uses focused beams of light to target and reduce the appearance of vascular lesions, such as spider veins, on your skin’s surface. This non-invasive procedure heats the veins, causing them to collapse and gradually fade from view. By precisely targeting the affected areas, laser vein treatment restores the skin’s smoothness and diminishes the appearance of unsightly veins. The procedure is safe, causes minimal discomfort, and typically requires little to no downtime, allowing you to swiftly resume your daily activities.

Laser Vein Treatment Treats:

  • Spider veins
  • Small varicose veins
  • Broken capillaries
  • Other vascular lesions
  • Redness caused by vein issues

How Does Laser Vein Treatment Work?

Laser vein treatment operates through selective photothermolysis. The specialized laser emits a wavelength of light absorbed by the hemoglobin in the blood within the targeted veins. As the hemoglobin absorbs this energy, it converts it into heat, causing thermal damage to the vein walls while sparing the surrounding tissue. This triggers the body’s natural healing response, leading to the collapse and reabsorption of the damaged veins. Over time, the treated veins are absorbed by the body, leaving behind smoother and clearer skin.

Benefits Of Laser Vein Treatment:

  • Non-invasive procedure
  • Minimal discomfort during treatment
  • Little to no downtime required
  • Precise targeting of affected areas
  • Reduces the appearance of spider veins
  • Long-lasting results
  • Safe and FDA-approved

Laser Vein Treatment FAQs

Is laser vein treatment painful?

Most patients report minimal discomfort during laser vein treatment. The procedure may cause a warm sensation or mild stinging as the laser energy is applied to the skin, but it is generally well-tolerated. Your provider will also use topical anesthetics to ensure optimal comfort, and the laser devices we use have cooling tips that can further reduce discomfort.

How long does a laser vein treatment session take?

The duration of a laser vein treatment depends on the size and number of veins being treated. Typically, sessions last 15 minutes to an hour. However, multiple sessions may be needed to achieve optimal results, especially for larger or more numerous veins.

What can I expect after laser vein treatment?

After laser vein treatment, you may experience some mild redness, swelling, or bruising in the treated area. These side effects are usually temporary and subside within a few days to a week. You can resume normal activities immediately following the procedure, although strenuous exercise and prolonged sun exposure should be avoided for a short period.

Are there any risks or side effects associated with laser vein treatment?

While laser vein treatment is safe, like any medical procedure, it carries some risks and potential side effects. These may include temporary skin discoloration, blistering, or scarring, although these are rare. Infection, nerve damage, or blood clots are also possible but extremely uncommon. Our aesthetic providers take all possible measures to avoid complications.

Who is a suitable candidate for laser vein treatment?

The ideal candidates for laser vein treatment are individuals with spider veins, small varicose veins, or other superficial vascular lesions who are in good overall health. Pregnant women or those with certain medical conditions may not be suitable candidates. A thorough evaluation is necessary to determine your candidacy and develop a treatment plan.

How long do the results of laser vein treatment last?

Laser vein treatment can provide long-lasting results, but it does not prevent the development of new veins in the future. While the targeted veins are permanently removed, you can still develop new spider veins or vascular lesions, for which you may need maintenance treatments.
