About Laser Vein Removal
Commonly found on the legs and face, spider veins are little, branching blood vessels that are visible underneath the skin. Caused by many factors, like age and genetics, spider veins can look purple, red, and blue, which makes them hard to mask. Since these veins usually get worse over time and lead to increased visibility, it is smart to treat them when you first see them. To reduce the visibility of veins on the face and body, Versailles Medical Spa offers nonsurgical YAG laser vein removal treatments for both women and men. During a complimentary consultation we can create a customized plan based on your needs and goals for your laser vein reduction treatment.
Laser Vein Removal Candidates
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.
Your Laser Vein Removal
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.
Remove Spider Veins
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.
