About Laser Vein Removal

Typically located on the face and legs, spider veins are little, branching blood vessels that are visible through the skin. Caused by many factors, like genetics and age, spider veins can be red, purple, and blue, which makes them difficult to mask. Since spider veins typically multiply over time and lead to greater visibility, it is important to seek help at the first signs. To reduce the visibility of spider veins on the body and face, Nordstar Medical, Skincare & Laser Center performs noninvasive laser vein removal treatments with KTP laser technology for Jackson and Dyersburg, TN women and men. In your initial consultation, Dr. Laura Dipuma can suggest a customized plan based on your needs and goals for your laser vein reduction treatment.

Should I Receive Laser Vein Removal?

Laser vein removal treatments at Nordstar Medical, Skincare & Laser Center may improve the visibility of small to medium-sized blood vessels on the body and face. Commonly called spider veins, these blood vessels are typically not a medical issue, but they are deemed unwanted. Affected men and women tend to avoid certain clothing (like swimsuits and shorts) or use a lot of cosmetics to try to cover up these spider veins. Laser vein reduction is a good option for patients who have generally good health, do not have a history of blood clots, and are not pregnant.

Laser Vein Removal Technique

Laser vein reduction treatments are done in our Jackson and Dyersburg, TN offices in about 20 – 40 minutes based on the size and number of areas being addressed. During your laser vein procedure, you will be asked to lie comfortably in one of our treatment rooms as the skin is cleaned. At your request, a topical numbing cream can be applied before your procedure to reduce any discomfort. The laser handpiece is passed over the area so the energy can reach the spider veins through multiple pulses that do not affect the skin. The abnormal blood vessel soaks in the laser energy, which collapses and closes the vessel wall. You will be able to leave our office right after the treatment to resume your normal activities.

Laser Vein Removal Technique

Right after your laser vein reduction session, you may notice redness, bruising, and swelling; however, these side effects usually dissipate in about 7 – 10 days. For faster healing, compression or support garments may be worn to increase the circulation of blood. It is important to avoid extended exposure to UV rays, and you are encouraged to apply sunscreen frequently to treated areas. Some patients may see visible improvements immediately, but outcomes will vary for every person. At your consultation, realistic expectations will be discussed, as well as suggestions on the number of treatments necessary to reach your optimal results. Other spider veins will likely develop over time so touch-up procedures may be performed every few years.

Remove Spider Veins

Rather than concealing or covering visible blood vessels on your face or body, try nonsurgical laser vein removal at Nordstar Medical, Skincare & Laser Center in Jackson and Dyersburg, TN to improve the appearance of your skin. In your consultation, Dr. Dipuma will examine your spider veins and develop a custom treatment plan to best fit your condition. We look forward to meeting you.
