Spider Vein Removal
How Does Spider Vein Removal Work?
A non-invasive laser treatment used for diminishing or eliminating spider veins, cherry hemangiomas, rosacea and other types of telangiectasias on the face and body. In the last several years it has become a treatment of choice for treating unsightly broken and dilated vessels on the face and legs. Lasers produce a beam of highly concentrated light that is absorbed by hemoglobin in the dilated blood vessel. It causes the blood to coagulate and the unwanted vessel to gradually disappear.
What are Spider Veins?
Spider veins on the face and legs bother millions of people. Spider veins are red, blush or purple veins that can result from sun exposures, use of oral contraception, hormone therapy, the aging process, or heredity.
How Soon Will I See Results?
Results are seen within three to four weeks after the treatment. That is how long it takes for the body to dissolve the coagulated vessel.
How Many Treatments are Needed?
Typically, one to three laser vein treatments are needed. Treatments can be done every four to eight weeks apart. Cherry hemangiomas (red dots on the body) usually only require two to three treatments.
Are Laser Vein Treatments Painful?
Clients describe the sensation from the laser vein treatment as if a rubber band is being snapped against the skin. For further comfort, we may apply topical anesthetic cream to numb treatment area and cold compresses after the treatment is complete.
Hemangiomas (Face, Legs & Body)
No recovery time is needed. Clients return to normal daily activity immediately after the treatment.
