What is Laser Vein Removal?

Typically located on the face and legs, spider veins are small, branching blood vessels that are visible underneath the skin. Caused by many factors, like genetics, age, and blood pooling in the legs, spider veins may be blue, red, and purple, which makes them difficult to mask. Since these veins typically progress over the years and lead to stronger visibility, it is smart to get treatment when you first notice them. To minimize the appearance of spider veins on the body and face, Bodian Dermatology performs noninvasive laser vein removal treatments using Cutera enlighten laser, Laser Genesis, and/or the Excel V laser. Our laser vein treatments work great as standalone treatments or in combination with another skin rejuvenation procedure, like sclerotherapy. At your private consultation, Dr. Adam Bodian will design a customized vein treatment plan that best fits your concerns and goals.

Can You Treat My Spider Veins?

Nonsurgical vein removal sessions at Bodian Dermatology may help the appearance of small- to medium-sized blood vessels on the face and body. Frequently called spider veins, these blood vessels are typically not a medical issue; however, they are considered a cosmetic problem. Affected men and women tend to avoid certain clothing (like swimsuits and shorts) or use a lot of cosmetics to try to mask these spider veins. Laser vein reduction is great for people who have generally good health, do not have blood clots, and are not pregnant.

Our Laser Vein Removal Technique

Laser vein reduction treatments are performed in our Great Neck, NY office in about 20 – 40 minutes, depending on the number of areas being addressed. During your laser vein reduction, you will lie comfortably in one of our treatment rooms as the affected area is cleaned. If requested, a local numbing cream may be used before the session to minimize any discomfort. The laser is passed over the area so the energy can target the veins with multiple pulses that don't harm the rest of the body. The vessel takes in the energy of the laser, which closes the walls of the veins. You will be able to leave our office as soon as you feel comfortable to resume your regular activities.

Your Laser Vein Removal Results

Right after your laser vein removal session, you may have redness, bruising, and swelling, but these symptoms should disappear in about 1 – 2 weeks. For faster healing, compression or support garments can be worn to increase blood circulation. It's necessary to avoid extended exposure to UV rays, and you should use sunscreen on treated areas. Some patients notice visible improvements immediately, but results will be different for every person. In your consultation with Dr. Bodian, potential results will be reviewed along with suggestions on the number of treatments needed to get your optimal results. New spider veins will likely appear in time so touch-up procedures may be performed as needed.

Laser Vein Removal FAQ

Does the vein go away?
A laser vein treatment will address the vein with a focused beam of energy that affects the vein and helps destroy it. The laser is very precise and is highly focused on the vein, so it won't damage your skin. Once the vein has collapsed, it will take about 4 – 6 weeks for it to be reabsorbed by the body and disappear.

Where can laser vein removal be used?
Spider veins may be found on your face, upper thighs, lower legs, and near your ankles. Anywhere a spider vein exists, laser vein removal may be a good treatment option. Our cutting-edge laser system works with precision when treating the specific vein so the nearby tissue and skin are unharmed.

Is laser vein removal painful?
Before your procedure, we may put on a local anesthetic to numb the area. Most patients report feeling a tingling sensation or a sting when the laser focuses on the target. Most laser systems, like the one our practice uses, are equipped with a built-in 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 to the area.
