Spider Veins and Laser Vein Removal

Spider veins appear as unsightly blue or red veins under the surface of the skin — usually on the legs or the face — and are usually caused by pregnancy, heredity, stress, or long periods of sitting or standing. Laser leg vein removal is an extremely effective way to eliminate spider veins and broken capillaries. The procedure is not only safe and effective; it’s also quick and leaves the skin looking refreshed and beautiful.

Why Live Life with Unwanted Veins?

Key benefits of laser vein removal:

  • Minimally invasive
  • Very little downtime
  • Reduces or removes vein visibility
  • Allows patients to feel more comfortable showing skin
  • Provides a self-esteem and confidence boost

Are You Considering Laser Vein Removal?

If you’re in the Bakersfield area and you’re considering laser vein removal to improve the appearance of your spider veins, you may be a perfect candidate for this procedure. Nearly anyone can be treated with laser vein removal. During your consultation with us, if there is any reason why laser vein removal may not be a good fit for you, we will explain why and determine another procedure that will suit you.

What to Expect from Laser Vein Treatment

Shaving the treatment area is recommended before we use the laser. This allows the vein to absorb the heat energy instead of the hair follicle pigment. We will give you eye shields, and treatment will begin. The laser will pass over the spider veins, delivering quick energy pulses. This feels something like a small pinprick, or like a hot rubber band being snapped onto the skin. Please let us know if you begin to feel too uncomfortable. 

The amount of time for your procedure will depend on the size of the treatment area. The majority of patients need multiple laser vein removal treatment sessions to get the best results. These sessions will be scheduled every 6-12 weeks. 

Most patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately, although you may have some bruising, swelling, or redness. This should subside by one week. During recovery, be sure to avoid direct sunlight and use a high SPF sunblock. It’s also important to cover the treated area anytime you’re outside. Laser vein removal may or may not yield permanent results. This will vary case by case, as some patients have a root cause for their spider veins that can cause them to develop again.

How Laser Vein Treatment Works

Laser vein treatment works by reaching into the upper layers of the skin to target the blood vessels underneath with quick pulses of light energy. The veins will absorb this energy, which makes them solidify — thereby destroying them. Over the course of the following weeks, the vessel will become absorbed by the body, and the vein will go away.
