Laser Vein Removal
Have you been noticing small blood vessels appearing on your face, nose, and legs? Are they becoming more difficult to cover with makeup? These blood vessels are referred to as “spider veins” or telangiectasia and appear on the surface of the skin. They are caused by an increase in blood pressure in that area, which can be a result of standing for long periods of time or sitting with the legs crossed in a certain way. However, these veins may also be cause from other reasons such as hereditary and environmental factors.

How Does It Work?
The laser targets the hemoglobin in the vessels while leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected. The treated spider veins heat to a point where they coagulate and are left as debris which our body will innately absorb and remove as if it was never there in the first place.
Before the laser vein procedure begins, you will be provided with special protective eyewear to wear for the duration of the treatment. The treatment is virtually painless, and a cooling gel and special handpieces are used to ensure your comfort through the process and to reduce the risk of skin injury.
There is little to no downtime with the laser vein removal procedure, and you will be provided with a printed and electronic copy of your after care instructions. Our medical staff take pride in ensure the best possible outcome in the safest possible way. The potential side effects of laser vein removal include redness, swelling and mild bruising that will go away quickly and you will be able to resume to your regular daily activities immediately.
