SPIDER VEIN REMOVAL


Spider veins of the face and upper body bother millions of people. Spider veins are overgrown or enlarged blood vessels that can result from sun exposure, use of oral contraception, hormone therapy, the aging process, or heredity. Advanced laser technology offers an effective treatment for facial and spider veins. And we now offer treatment with this technology in our office.

HOW DOES THE LASER HELP?

With a beam of light, the laser can deliver a prescribed dose of energy to the spider veins. The laser “selectively” coagulated the problem veins. While sparing surrounding areas. After treatment, the vessel slowly and naturally disappears.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?

Results are seen within one to three weeks. Typically, one to two treatments are recommended.

CAN WE BE SURE THAT THIS WILL WORK ON MY VEINS?

This is something that must be determined with each client individually. Generally, all small red veins of the face and upper body achieve very good results.

IS THIS PAINFUL?

There is some minor discomfort associated with this laser treatment. Most patients describe the sensation as a series of rubber band snaps to the skin. We can often reduce or eliminate this by cooling the treated area with an air cooling device.
