Leg and Facial Vein Removal: About

An advance in technology now allows us to treat spider veins with a non invasive laser. Red, blue, or purple leg and facial veins can be a result of sun exposure, hormone therapy, age, genetics, or other physiological and environmental factors. With the use of IPL (intense pulsed light), we are able to remove these stubborn veins and leave patients with excellent results. This works by focusing light energy onto the area where the laser is able to selectively target the problem veins while leaving the surrounding areas unharmed. Within a few days, the unwanted vein will naturally begin to disappear. Many people are surprised to realize how easy and comfortable this treatment is. With this technology, we are also able to treat vascular lesions on the face and the body for medical and cosmetic reasons. Come in today to find out if this treatment is right for you.

Leg and Facial Vein Removal FAQs:

How many treatments are required?

With this technology, patients are able to see excellent results just after one or two treatments. The results are typically seen within 3-4 weeks.

How long is each treatment?
Depending on the size of the area that is to be treated, treatment can take anywhere between 10 and 20 minutes.

Does this procedure hurt?
The treatment for the removal of facial and leg veins causes minimal to no discomfort. The severity of the discomfort is often described by patients as a very light slight snapping sensation like a mild rubber band against the skin.

Will my skin be irritated after the procedure?
Immediately following treatment, the area may show a slight redness with some swelling or sensation of warmth. A mild sunburned sensation may persist for 2-3 days.

What are some precautions before and after laser treatment?
Sun exposure should be avoided 48 hours prior to treatment, and patients should not be tanned or sunburned while receiving IPL treatments. Additionally, you may likely experience a sunburned sensation on your skin after treatment. For this reason, it is important that patients avoid excess rubbing and scrubbing as it can open the area and increase the chance of scarring. If the veins are on the face, makeup may be gently applied the day after treatment. Avoiding sun exposure and wearing sun block SPF 30 or greater is strongly encouraged.

Do the veins reappear? How often must these problem areas be treated?
In some cases where the vein is not completely sealed off, the veins may reappear due to blood flow returning in the area. Most veins may be permanently removed where further treatment is not needed, while other, stubborn veins may require more frequent treatment.
