ABOUT 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 noninvasive laser vein removal treatments with Inmodes Dialaze. In your private consultation, we will suggest a personalized plan based on your unique needs and goals for your laser vein treatment.
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 and 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. During your laser vein reduction, you will lay comfortably in a private treatment room 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 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.
WHAT TO EXPECT
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 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 needed to get your best results. More spider veins will probably form over time, so follow-up procedures may be needed every few years.
REMOVE SPIDER VEINS
Instead of concealing or covering visible spider veins on your face and body, learn about nonsurgical laser vein removal treatments at Absolute Wellness and Aesthetics to improve the appearance of your skin. In your consultation, we can assess your skin and formulate a personalized treatment plan that best addresses your concerns.
