Now anyone can make unsightly facial veins a thing of the past. Utilizing an advanced ND:YAG laser, light energy specifically targets the red blood cells contained within the unwanted veins. This energy is converted to heat, which helps to seal the vein and restrict blood flow, causing the superficial redness to disappear.

The treatment works quickly, safely, and effectively on a broad range of vessels from tiny spider veins to deep blue reticular veins.

Frequently Asked Questions About Laser Vein Removal

Laser vein removal delivers pulses of light energy which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later reabsorbed by your body. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skin’s surface, where it should be.

Often, clients find that two to three treatments are sufficient. However, the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, color, and size of the vessels being treated. Since individual results vary, ask your clinician about your specific condition.

Most clients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the handpiece. Although no local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required, some clients opt to use a topical anesthetic prior to treatment. Following the treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.

Although many clients report few if any side effects, those most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin. These effects typically last for less than 24 hours. Some patients may experience bruising and, in rare instances, blistering may occur. Consult with your clinician for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.

Most clients find that the majority of the treated veins have shown significant improvement within two to six weeks of treatment. However, your final results may not be apparent for several months. Over time, it is possible for new veins to appear, but these too can be removed with laser vein removal.
