Laser Vein Removal
Usually found on the upper and lower legs, spider veins are small, branching blood vessels that are visible through the skin. Caused by many factors, like genetics and age, spider veins can be blue, red, and purple, which makes them difficult to mask. Since these unattractive veins usually multiply over time and become more visible, it’s advisable to seek treatment when you first notice them.
To decrease the visibility of blood vessels on the face and body, Absolute Wellness and Aesthetics offers non-invasive laser vein removal treatments with Inmode’s Dialaze. In your personal, private consultation, we will discuss a customized plan based on your unique needs and goals for your laser vein treatment. Instead of concealing or covering visible spider veins on your face and body, learn about nonsurgical laser vein removal treatments to improve the appearance of your skin.

Laser vein removal reduces the visibility of blood vessels on the face or body using the heat from a laser device, which is InMode’s Diolaze laser at Absolute Wellness and Aesthetics.
Laser vein removal treatments at Absolute can minimize the look of small to medium-sized blood vessels that are on the face and body. Frequently known as spider veins, these blood vessels are rarely a medical problem, but they are considered a cosmetic problem. Many people avoid certain clothing, like shorts or swimsuits, or use a large amount of concealer to try to cover up these veins. Laser vein treatments are a good option for patients who are in generally good health, do not have a history of blood clots, and are not pregnant.
Laser vein removal treatments are completed in our office as an outpatient procedure in about 30-45 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas being addressed. You will lay comfortably in a private treatment room during your laser vein reduction as the affected area is cleaned. If requested, a topical anesthetic can be applied before your procedure to reduce any potential discomfort. The laser handpiece is passed over the treatment area so the energy can target the veins through a series of pulses that don’t harm the rest of the body. The abnormal blood vessel soaks in the laser energy, which closes the walls of the veins. You will be able to leave our office immediately to resume your normal routine.
Right after your laser vein removal treatment, you may notice bruising, redness, and swelling, but these symptoms should dissipate in around 7 – 10 days. For optimal healing, support or compression garments may be worn to encourage the circulation of blood. It’s important to avoid prolonged sun exposure and you should apply sunscreen frequently to the treated skin.
Certain patients notice visible improvements right away, but outcomes will vary for each patient. In your initial consultation with our seasoned laser technician, realistic expectations will be discussed, along with recommendations on how many sessions are needed to get your best results. More spider veins will probably form over time, so follow-up procedures may be needed every few years.
