Laser vein removal is a non-invasive treatment that uses advanced laser technology to selectively target and treat unwanted veins on the face and body. It is a safe and effective option for those seeking to improve the appearance of spider veins, varicose veins, and other vascular lesions. At Versailles Medical Spa, we offer personalized laser vein removal treatment plans using state-of-the-art technology and a team of experienced medical professionals.
Nonsurgical vein removal sessions at Versailles Medical Spa can improve the appearance of small to medium-sized veins that are on the face and body. Frequently called spider veins, these visible blood vessels are rarely a medical problem; however, they are considered unwanted. Those individuals who are affected by them tend to avoid certain clothes (such as shorts and swimsuits) or resort to cosmetic makeup to try to mask their veins. Laser vein reduction is great for patients who have generally good health, don’t have a history of blood clots, and are not pregnant.
We complete nonsurgical laser vein treatments in our Darien, CT office as an outpatient procedure. The session lasts about 20-40 minutes, depending on the number of areas treated. During your laser vein reduction, the medical provider will cleanse and prepare your skin. At your request, we may apply a topical anesthetic cream for numbing before your session, to minimize any potential discomfort. The laser is passed across the area so the energy can target the veins through a series of pulses that don’t affect the surrounding tissues. The abnormal blood vessel soaks in the energy of the laser, which collapses and closes the wall of the vessel. Following your appointment, you can leave and resume your daily activities.
After your laser vein removal treatment, you may notice bruising, swelling, and redness; however, these side effects usually subside within 7-10 days. For faster healing, you may wear support or compression garments to encourage the circulation of blood. It’s necessary to avoid prolonged exposure to UV rays, and we encourage you to use sunscreen on the treated skin. Many patients notice visible improvements quickly, but results vary for each person. During your initial consultation, we will discuss realistic expectations and provide suggestions on how many sessions you may need to achieve your best results. Spider veins can continue to form over time, therefore you might need to schedule touch-up treatments every few years.
If you cover or conceal unattractive spider veins on your body or face, we might recommend noninvasive YAG laser vein reduction treatments at Versailles Medical Spa in Darien, CT. These treatments will improve the appearance of your skin and help you feel more confident. During your consultation, one of our team members will assess your skin and develop a laser vein treatment plan that best fits your goals.
