Laser vein removal, available at our medical spa, is a minimally invasive way to eliminate spider veins that can appear on the surface of the skin. These bluish-purple veins can appear on a variety of body areas, most commonly in the legs, and sometimes along the face. They typically resemble a spider’s web, and can sometimes be very painful. They can also create noticeable blemishes on the skin. Our aesthetic enhancement team can remedy these problems with laser vein removal, a non-surgical treatment that can ultimately yield clearer, more even-toned skin.
How It Works
During the laser vein removal procedure, light energy will be targeted precisely at the spider veins, effectively shrinking them until they disappear. Each laser vein removal treatment typically lasts 5 minutes to 15 minutes, depending on the size and number of the treatment areas. Some bruising or swelling may occur after treatment, which should quickly resolve within a few days. After 12 to 24 hours of recovery, most patients can usually resume normal activities. Multiple treatments may be necessary to completely remove the veins.
