Leg and facial veins are bothersome at best, unattractive and embarrassing at worst. Fortunately, with cosmetic laser vein removal, you can look and feel better - often with as little as only one or two visits. Spider veins are thin, threadlike veins that lie under the skin's surface. They are commonly red or purple in color, but can be blue or green. Spider veins can be hormonally induced, and are associated with pregnancy or menstruation. Spider veins grow from reticular "feeder" veins. Feeder veins form a network that can give the skin a marbled appearance. These are usually located on the legs, but also occur on the face, hands, and other areas. Laser therapy with our Cynosure Elite Laser is a safe, effective, and well-tolerated solution to eliminating unsightly spider veins.
How it works: A laser sends very direct, accurate bursts of light energy into the vein. This causes changes in the vein, which leads to shrinking and fading of vein color. A free consultation will determine if you would benefit from this type treatment. Laser therapy is more appealing to some patients because it does not use any needles. Discomfort can be reduced by topical numbing cream. Laser treatments take 15 to 30 minutes. Recommend series of 2-5 treatments.
