Erase Unsightly Veins

Usually found on the face and upper thighs, spider veins are small, branching blood vessels visible through the skin. Caused by many factors, like genetics and age, spider veins can be red, blue, and purple, which makes them difficult to mask. Since these unattractive veins usually multiply over time and become more visible, it's advisable to seek treatment when you first notice them. In your private consultation, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. William Vinyard will suggest a personalized plan based on your unique needs and goals for your laser vein treatment.

What Is Laser Vein Removal?

Laser vein removal treatments at VIPS can minimize the look of small- to medium-sized blood vessels on the face and body. Frequently known as spider veins, these blood vessels are rarely a medical problem but rather a cosmetic issue. Many people avoid certain clothing (like shorts and swimsuits) or use a lot of concealer to cover up these veins.

Laser vein removal, or laser vein therapy, is a non-invasive medical procedure that uses laser technology to target and eliminate unwanted or unsightly veins on the skin's surface. This treatment is commonly used to address spider veins and small varicose veins.

Who Is a Candidate?

Candidates for laser vein removal are individuals who experience unwanted veins on their skin. These veins are often considered cosmetic concerns and can appear on various parts of the body, most commonly on the legs or face. Laser vein treatments are a good option for patients who are in good health, do not have a history of blood clots, and are not pregnant.

Candidates should also be aware that multiple treatment sessions may be necessary to achieve the desired results, and the specific laser technology used can vary based on the characteristics of the veins being treated.

What Is the Technique?

Non-surgical laser vein removal treatments are completed in our Port Saint Lucie, FL, office as an outpatient procedure in about 20-40 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas being addressed. During your laser vein reduction, you will lie comfortably in a private treatment room as the affected area is cleaned. The laser handpiece is passed over the area so the energy can target the veins through a series of pulses that don't harm the rest of the body. The abnormal blood vessel absorbs the laser energy, which closes the walls of the veins. You can leave our office immediately to resume your routine.

What to Expect

Right after your laser vein removal treatment, you may notice bruising, swelling, and redness, but these symptoms should dissipate in around 7-10 days. Support or compression garments may be worn to encourage blood circulation for optimal healing. It's important to avoid prolonged sun exposure, and you should apply sunscreen frequently to the treated skin.

Certain patients notice visible improvements right away, but outcomes will vary for each patient. In your initial consultation with Dr. Vinyard, realistic expectations will be discussed, along with recommendations on how many sessions are needed to get your best results. More spider veins will probably form over time so that follow-up procedures may be needed every few years.

How much does laser vein removal cost?

Your laser vein removal treatment is priced based on how many veins are being treated and how many sessions are suggested to get your ideal results. At your initial consultation, we will evaluate your veins’ size and location and develop your custom treatment plan to help establish a cost. Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery offers several payment options, and we frequently offer specials on treatments like laser vein removal.

Does the vein go away?

Laser vein removal treats the vein with a focused beam of light that heats it and then destroys it. The laser system is precise and highly focused on the target area, so it will not affect the nearby skin. After the vein collapses, it takes about 4-6 weeks for it to be reabsorbed by the body and disappear.

Where can laser vein removal be used?

Unwanted spider veins are often found on the face, upper thighs, back of the legs, and around the ankles. For areas in both the face and body, laser vein removal can be helpful to reduce the appearance of unwanted veins. Our cutting-edge laser uses precision so the nearby tissue and skin are generally unaffected.

Is laser vein removal painful?

Most patients report feeling a tingling or snap as the laser focuses on the vein. Most lasers on the market, including the one our practice uses, have a built-in safety feature that helps provide a cooling effect. This decreases discomfort while at the same time preventing the laser from getting too hot, which can result in a burn or additional damage.
