Why Laser Vein Removal is Preferred Over Injections

No pain – plain and simple. When injections are used to remove unsightly spider and varicose veins from the body and face, there is substantial pain involved. Laser vein removal therapy is patient-friendly, safe, effective, and cost-efficient when performed by a board certified dermatologist and laser specialist.

Whether you are a man or a woman, you may be a good candidate to have the face and leg veins successfully removed by laser at Westchester Dermatology. Sherri Peace MD – Board Certified Dermatologist – has been practicing her laser vein removal expertise in Los Angeles since 1994.

Improved Laser Vein Removal Technique

No longer relying on wavelength technology, an advanced laser system of a unique design is used to perform spider and varicose vein removal. The process includes:

  • A laser system pulses light energy onto the target vein
  • Blood within the targeted vein coagulates with the heat and seals the vein
  • The destroyed vein is eventually absorbed by the body
  • Blood flow is then redirected deep beneath the skin’s surface

Number of Treatments

You can typically expect to undergo one or two treatments for successful vein removal. Several facts are determinative of the number of treatments. More than two treatments may be recommended depending on your individual condition:

  • Number of vessels
  • Color of vessels
  • Size of vessels

Laser Vein Removal Side Effects and Recovery

Most short-term side effects in the treated area will disappear within 24 to 48 hours:

  • Skin reddening
  • Local swelling of skin
  • Pigmentation changes

Long-term side effects are very rare and may last for a few weeks:

  • Bruising
  • Blistering

Laser Vein Removal Recovery

You will likely be able to resume your daily activities right after treatment – however – avoid strenuous exercise and other vigorous activities for at least 24 hours. It is recommended that you apply sunscreen to the treated areas and avoid exposure to the sun.
