Laser Treatment – Face and Leg Veins
VBeam Perfecta (Pulsed Dye) and GentleYAG (Nd/YAG) laser vein treatments safely and effectively treat unwanted facial and leg veins. The laser creates a beam of high intensity light that penetrates deep into skin tissue where it is absorbed by hemoglobin in the blood vessels, effectively “erasing” the vein.
Our physician will guide the laser using a small handheld probe, using laser pulsations to trace along the blood vessel. Most patients average 75% clearing of purple spider veins with a single treatment. Larger, blue-green veins and matting require more treatments. Patients scheduled for leg vein treatment should plan to wear pantyhose for three days following treatment and avoid sun exposure before and throughout treatment to maximize results. A sunblock of SPF 30 or higher should be worn daily.
