Laser Vein Removal

Laser vein removal is a non-invasive procedure that uses the power of laser energy to gently yet effectively remove unsightly spider veins on your body. Popular treatment areas include the face, legs, and hands.  With regular laser vein removal treatments, spider veins can disappear within the year.

The technology

laser vein removal

Dr. Craig uses Candela GentleYAG PRO laser therapy to remove unsightly red, blue, and purple veins (known as spider veins).  These veins are often caused by swollen blood vessels that crop up from weight gain/loss, pregnancy, hormonal changes, and/or the aging process.  GentleYAG works by delivering beams of laser light energy to the treatment area; this energy penetrates the dermis and heats up the offending veins.  The heat causes the vein to contract, resulting in its minimization.  Over time and with regular treatments, the spider vein permanently disappears, leaving behind smooth and clear skin without the bruising.

Laser vein removal treatments take about 15 to 30 minutes to perform, depending on the treatment area and number of veins being treated.  The device features a cooling function

The recovery

Patients will need to wear sunscreen immediately after treatment and avoid the sun whenever possible.  Some patients will experience redness and swelling after a laser hair removal session.  These side effects disappear within the first week after treatment.
