Beaty Facial Plastic Surgery treats spider veins using concentrated light energy to shrink unwanted veins without harming surrounding tissue.
What are spider veins?
Spider Veins (not to be confused with varicose veins) are small blood vessels that usually resemble spider webs. They can be red, blue, or purple in color. These veins typically appear on the legs or face. An individual’s likelihood of developing spider veins can be affected by a number of different factors, including:
How does laser energy treat unwanted veins?
Beaty Facial Plastic Surgery treats spider veins using concentrated light energy to shrink unwanted veins without harming surrounding tissue. The laser is aimed at the problem vein. This laser energy is then absorbed by the vein as heat, eventually causing it to collapse in on itself.
Who is a good candidate for laser vein treatment?
If you’re experiencing aesthetic concerns like the ones listed below, laser vein treatment could help:
Spider veins – Pink, purple or red veins that are small and superficial
Feeder veins or reticular veins – Blue or greenish veins that are slightly deeper but still near the skin’s surface
Is this procedure painful?*
There is minimal pain, and we routinely use cooling technology to further enhance comfort.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects are discussed during your consultation. A slight burning or stinging sensation may be experienced during the procedure. After treatment, the vein fades or disappears altogether.
How many treatments will I need to see results?*
This will vary on a case by case basis. Usually, 4+ treatments are needed to remove a spider vein entirely. After treatment for leg veins we recommend a compression garment and limitation of exercise for 10 days to achieve best results.
