- Laser Vein Removal is an effective treatment to dramatically reduce the appearance of spider veins and “strawberry” hemangiomas.
- This in office treatment can take around 30-60 minutes to perform. This is where we will target all of the areas where the spider veins are of concern.
- The laser feels like a snapping sensation on the legs. Patients generally tolerate the procedure well; however, a prescription anxiolytic can be taken to help with the discomfort.
- To complement the results of the treatment, compression stockings are recommended for a few hours each day for about 1-2 weeks after the procedure.
What is the difference between a “spider vein” and a “varicose vein”? As an embarrassing but very common condition for millions of women, spider veins, appear as unsightly blue or red veins under the surface of the skin, usually on the legs or the face. They are usually caused by pregnancy, heredity, and long periods of sitting or standing.
Varicose veins are also a common condition that affects millions of people. Varicose veins occur when blood vessels in large veins in the legs become swollen and take on a purple or reddish color.
At Beautologie Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Aesthetics, we offer varicose vein and spider vein removal treatments to patients from Bakersfield using the latest laser technology. The result is smoother, naturally beautiful looking skin and removal of the unsightly veins from your legs and other areas.
Laser Spider Vein Removal Technique
During the laser spider vein removal procedure, our doctors and nurses use a special light that passes through skin to the targeted vein. The blood in the vein absorbs the light, causing the vein to heat up and shrink to the point where it disappears. The entire process takes approximately 20 minutes (depending on the size of the area to be treated), and patients experience little to no discomfort.
Patients who undergo laser varicose or spider vein removal typically require no downtime, and can return to their normal routine immediately after treatment. Contact Beautologie to schedule a consultation to learn more about our laser vein removal treatments.
Laser Spider and Varicose Vein Removal Results and Benefits
Laser varicose and spider vein removal offers a safe and effective approach to eliminating unsightly veins. The lasers used are very precise, and there is a very small risk for blisters or burns on the skin. Spider and varicose veins seem to fade away or even clear completely. The result is more youthful-looking skin.
Although laser varicose and spider vein removal provides exceptional results, patients should remember the procedure does not prevent new veins from appearing. Further treatment may be necessary to maintain results in the future.
