Do you ever feel embarrassed by tiny red veins on your face or legs? You don’t have to! Medical esthetic lasers now provide a safe, effective, non-surgical option for the removal of spider veins.
Spider veins are tiny red or purple capillaries close to the surface of the skin. They often appear around the base of the nose, the cheeks, or the legs. Many things can cause spider veins – including injury, pressure, sun exposure, hormonal exposure, and other hereditary or lifestyle factors.
At LCI, we perform laser vein removal with the Gentle YAG®, the fastest and most powerful Nd:YAG laser available. It treats all skin types and provides an excellent therapy for spider veins.
Traditional vein treatment involves multiple injections into the vein, which involves some discomfort and downtime. The injection contains chemical that cause the vein to close. With laser treatment, a precise amount of energy is delivered to each vein with minimal risk to the skin. Lasers require fewer treatment sessions, so you may also save on treatment costs.
During laser vein treatment, the laser technician delivers heat energy to the vein with a special hand piece. The heat absorbed causes the vein to collapse. Eventually, the body naturally absorbs the treated vein.
When you choose laser vein removal at LCI, you can expect visible improvement after 1 or 2 treatments. We recommend 3 to 5 treatment sessions.
