Laser Spider Vein Removal
Spider veins, medically known as telangiectasias, are tiny veins just beneath the surface of the skin. They are usually painless and can develop on any part of the body including the face, thighs, calves or ankles. Although not harmful, they can be unsightly and make you look and feel older than your age. Laser spider vein removal is a safe and extremely effective treatment option.
Our FDA approved laser selectively targets and destroys the red coloration of the spider veins, without damaging the surrounding tissue. The procedure is relatively quick, and no anesthesia is needed. After the recommended number of treatments, the skin will be noticeably more uniform and natural in appearance. There is no downtime and most people can immediately return to their regular activities.
Our laser is a Cynosure Apogee Elite, one of the most advanced lasers on the market today for hair removal and spider vein removal. It is a combination Nd:YAG and Alexandrite system used with a built in Zimmer Cryo 5 Chiller, to maximize comfort. During hair removal, the melanosome, which is the pigment in your hair follicle is targeted by the laser. By using highly specific settings, customized to your skin and hair type, we are able to destroy the follicle permanently and prevent further hair growth.
Our laser can also be used with highly specific protocols to eliminate unsightly spider veins. The pigment in the veins, from hemoglobin, can also be safely targeted by the Nd:YAG component of the laser. A small beam of light is selectively aimed at the target vessel which is coagulated and destroyed by the heat of the laser. Our cooling system is used to maximize comfort and prevent any damage to the epidermis. With enough time in between treatments and an individually designed removal plan, we are able completely remove most unwanted hair and spider veins with minimal discomfort and almost no risk of scarring.
