What is Laser Vein Removal?
Usually located on the face and legs, spider veins are little blood vessels that branch and become visible underneath the skin. Caused by many factors including age and genetics, spider veins may be red, purple, and blue, which makes them difficult to conceal. Since these unattractive veins usually get worse over time and lead to greater visibility, it is wise to get help when you first notice them. To reduce the appearance of spider veins on the body and face, Clovis Laser Center performs nonsurgical laser vein removal treatments for Clovis, CA residents. At your initial consultation, Dr. Timothy Roth will develop a customized plan to meet your unique needs and goals for your laser vein treatment.
Laser Vein Removal FAQ
How much does laser vein removal cost?
Laser vein removal is a treatment that is priced based on how many veins are being treated and how many sessions are required to create the best possible outcomes. At your consult, your technician will evaluate your veins, their size, and their location. We will then decide on a customized treatment process in order to estimate your cost. Clovis Laser Center offers numerous payment options and frequently provides promotions on procedures such as laser vein therapy.
Does the vein go away after laser vein treatment?
Laser-based vein treatments will target the vein with a concentrated beam of energy that heats up the vein and destroys it. The laser is very precise and focuses just on the target vein — so it won't injure the surrounding areas of the skin. After the vein has collapsed, it takes about 4 – 6 weeks for it to be flushed from your system and dissolve.
Is laser vein removal painful?
Prior to your treatment, our team might place an anesthetic cream to help with comfort. Many patients report feeling a brief snapping sensation when the laser targets the area. Most lasers, including ours, are equipped with a special safety feature that helps by providing a cooling effect. This minimizes discomfort while also preventing the laser from becoming too hot, as this might result in an injury or additional damage to the treatment area.
