Laser Vein Treatment at Innovative Aesthetics

This treatment uses a laser to treat small, superficial veins, including spider veins. Spider veins are commonly located on the face and legs, and can be purple or blue in color. Unfortunately, there is no way to tell for sure which veins will respond to treatment. Each person is different, so prior consultation is helpful in evaluating your veins. Sometimes, further testing may be recommended to determine underlying issues. If you have had prior surgery or treatment on your veins, that could affect the ultimate outcome of treatment.

In addition, multiple treatments are almost always necessary. The number of treatments also varies depending on your veins. The most common treatment areas are the face, neck, and chest.

What to Expect During Treatment

Pre-Treatment Care

Avoid direct sun exposure prior to treatment. Treatment cannot be performed on tanned skin. The risk of complications is greatly reduced when avoiding sun prior to treatment. Discontinue use of Retin A, glycolics, or any other harsh topical products on the area to be treated 2 days prior.

During Treatment

The blood temperature of the treatment area is elevated to a level that causes coagulation. This does not cause damage to the epidermis or surrounding tissue, but destroys the function of the vein. Over time, the vein is absorbed by the body and disappears from sight.

Post-Treatment Care

Discontinue strong topical skincare for approximately 5 days prior. Keep the treated area clean and moist, and keep sunscreen on any exposed area.

Side Effects

While you can resume normal activities, we do ask that you refrain from vigorous exercise. You should also avoid hot tubs for 24 hours after treatment. It is common to have mild to moderate pain, as well as redness, swelling, and bruising.
