What is Laser Vein Removal?

Laser vein removal is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure which eliminates small veins, such as spider veins (also called telangiectasias), on the face and body. This treatment uses advanced laser devices such as the Cutera XEO or Motus AZ to gently target the affected veins with concentrated light energy.

As laser energy is absorbed by the blood vessels they heat up and coagulate – leading them to be absorbed by your body. This absorption process is gradual and typically takes a few weeks to complete. The advantage of this gentle procedure is the veins are able to be treated without any incisions or injections, and the surrounding tissue is left unharmed.

Laser vein removal treatments are quick and produce only mild discomfort, with sessions usually lasting between 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.

What are the Benefits of Laser Vein Removal?

Laser vein removal offers numerous benefits for individuals seeking to improve the appearance of their skin by eliminating unsightly veins.

  • Non-Invasive Treatment: Laser vein removal is minimally invasive and does not require incisions or injections, reducing the risk of complications and shortening recovery time.
  • Minimal Discomfort: Laser vein treatments are generally well-tolerated, with most patients experiencing only mild discomfort.
  • Quick Procedure & Recovery: Sessions are short with little to no downtime afterwards. You can resume your normal activities almost immediately after the treatment.
  • Long-Lasting Results: Laser vein removal offers lasting results, with treated veins gradually fading away over a few weeks.
  • Improved Skin Appearance: By eliminating spider veins and other small veins, laser vein removal enhances the overall appearance of your skin and creates a more even complexion.

What types of veins can be treated with laser vein removal?

Laser vein removal can effectively treat spider veins, telangiectasias, and other small veins on the face and body. Our clinic uses advanced laser systems, including the Cutera XEO and Motus AZ, to target and eliminate these unsightly veins.

How does laser vein removal work?

Laser vein removal works by emitting concentrated light energy into the targeted veins. The light energy is absorbed by the blood vessels, causing them to coagulate and be gradually absorbed by the body. This process eliminates the appearance of the veins without damaging the surrounding tissues.

Is laser vein removal safe?

Yes, laser vein removal is a safe and minimally invasive procedure. Our estheticians are highly trained and use state-of-the-art equipment to ensure optimal safety and effectiveness. Side effects are generally minimal and temporary.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments required varies depending on the size, depth, and location of the veins. Most patients need between 1 to 3 sessions to achieve optimal results. During your consultation, our esthetician will provide you with a personalized treatment plan.

Does laser vein removal hurt?

Most patients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure. The sensation is often described as a slight tingling or snapping feeling. Topical anesthetics can be applied to enhance comfort during the treatment.

Why do spider veins happen?

Spider veins, or telangiectasias, occur due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Genetics play a significant role, with a family history of spider veins or varicose veins increasing the likelihood of developing them.

Hormonal changes, such as those during pregnancy, menopause, or puberty, can weaken vein walls. Aging naturally causes veins to lose elasticity, making them more prone to dilation. Excessive sun exposure can damage skin and blood vessels, particularly on the face. Prolonged standing or sitting, obesity, and certain medical conditions like chronic venous insufficiency can also contribute to the formation of spider veins.

Additionally, other risk factors such as lack of physical activity, overly tight clothing, and smoking can impact vein health and may lead to the development of spider veins.

What can I expect after the treatment?

After the treatment, you may experience slight redness, swelling, or bruising in the treated area, which usually subsides within a few days. It’s important to follow post-treatment care instructions provided by your esthetician to ensure the best results.

How long do the results last?

The results of laser vein removal are long-lasting. However, new veins can develop over time due to factors like genetics, hormonal changes, or lifestyle. Maintenance treatments may be necessary to keep your skin looking its best.

Who is a good candidate for laser vein removal?

Good candidates for laser vein removal are individuals with spider veins, telangiectasias, or other small veins they wish to treat. It’s important to have realistic expectations and be in good overall health.

How should I prepare for my laser vein removal session?

To prepare for your session, avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, and self-tanners for at least two weeks prior to treatment. Do not use any photosensitive medications or skincare products. Shave the treatment area if necessary, and arrive with clean, makeup-free skin.

What post-treatment care is required?

After your treatment, avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to protect the treated area. Avoid hot baths, saunas, and strenuous exercise for 48 hours. Your esthetician will provide you with any additional aftercare information during your consultation.

Can laser vein removal treat varicose veins?

Laser vein removal is typically used for smaller veins, such as spider veins and telangiectasias. For larger veins, such as varicose veins, invasive treatments like endovenous laser therapy or vascular surgery may be recommended. A consultation with our esthetician will help determine the best treatment for your needs.

While we are able to treat smaller veins, for larger veins we may need to recommend you seek treatment at a dedicated vein clinic or vascular surgeon.

What is sclerotherapy, and how does it compare to laser vein removal?

Sclerotherapy is a procedure where a solution is injected into the affected veins, causing them to collapse and be reabsorbed by the body. Laser vein removal, on the other hand, uses light energy to achieve similar results without injections. The best treatment option depends on the specific characteristics of your veins and your personal preferences.

What is your cancellation/no show policy?

We understand that situations may arise which may force you to cancel or postpone a treatment and are happy to make changes or cancellations as long as we receive notice at least 24 hours in advance.
In the event that you are unable to provide 24 hours notice of your change or fail to keep your appointment, then your credit card may be charged $100 for the visit.
