The Laser Solution for Facial and Spider Veins
Spider veins on the face and legs bother millions of people. Spider veins (or telangiectasias) are red, bluish or purple veins than can result from sun exposure, use of oral contraception, hormone therapy, the aging process, or heredity.
Advanced laser technology offers an effective treatment for facial and spider veins. And we now offer treatment with this technology in our office.
Dr. McElgunn discussing Laser Vein Treatment
How does a laser help?
With a beam of light, the laser can deliver a prescribed dose of energy to the spider veins. The laser “selectively” coagulates the problem veins while sparing surrounding areas. After treatment, the vessel slowly and naturally disappears.
How many treatments are required?
Typically, several treatments are needed.
Can we be sure that this will work on my veins?
This is something that must be determined with each patient individually, but the majority of patients will benefit from this treatment.
Is this treatment difficult?
No. This non-invasive treatment process takes between 10 minutes to about 20 minutes, depending on your situation. After treatment, there is no down time – which means you can resume all of your normal activities immediately afterward.
