Laser Spider Vein and Rosacea Treatments
Telangiectasias and spider veins are groups of tiny blue, red or purple blood vessels that are commonly located just under the skin on the body and face. The laser can safely treat the small vessels that are located superficially and are less than 1mm in diameter. Some larger, deeper, blue bulging vessels are not suitable to be treated with a laser, but can be successfully treated using Sclerotherapy. Common causes of spider veins are pregnancy, age, family history, obesity, and sun damage. Rosacea is a skin condition in which persistent redness occurs. The redness is often caused by swollen blood vessels and can be safely and effectively maintained with laser treatments.
How Does Laser Treat Veins?
The laser beam targets the hemoglobin (blood) by passing through the outer layer of skin, leaving it unharmed. The targeted vessel absorbs the energy delivered by the laser and the heat causes the blood within the vessel to coagulate (clot). Over the next few weeks, the treated veins and capillaries will slowly be reabsorbed by your body and disappear.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
You will see a tremendous improvement with one treatment, however depending on how your body responds and how many vessels need to be treated, you many need more than one treatment.
Does the Treatment Hurt?
When the pulse of energy from the laser is delivered it may feel like a mild snap of a rubber band on your skin. We use a lot of cooling before and after the treatment to keep the client comfortable. We can also apply a mild topical numbing agent, which can be applied before the treatment if clients have a high sensitivity to the discomfort. Most clients are able to tolerate the treatment quite well. Some redness can form at the treatment site, as well as mild swelling which will dissipate within 24-48 hours. The treatment of larger leg veins can sometimes trigger bruising, which is completely harmless and will fade over the next few days.
$150 – $550 depending on size of area and quantity of vessels to be treated.
