Vein Treatments Q & A

What vein treatments are available?

The Advanced Laser and Cosmetic Center team uses the latest, safest, and most effective laser available for getting rid of spider veins and other vascular skin conditions. 

The state-of-the-art excel® V laser delivers truly astonishing results in treating many skin concerns without damaging the surrounding tissue and without downtime.

The excel V laser system uses a unique, high-powered green laser. When directed at a flaw, the laser’s energy penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the abnormal blood vessels. The laser heats up the blood vessels and destroys them. Discoloration disappears and your skin returns to its normal tone and color.

What associated conditions can be treated?

The excel V laser system is effective on a variety of pigmented skin issues such as:

  • Spider veins
  • Varicose veins
  • Rosacea
  • Port wine stain birthmarks
  • Cherry angiomas

Discuss your specific concerns with your doctor so they can customize a treatment for you.

Who is a good candidate for vein treatments?

Anyone who is frustrated and self-conscious about spider veins or other vascular lesions is a good candidate. The excel V is adjustable to almost every skin color and condition. The laser also offers a changeable spot size so it can address both superficial and deep problems.

What should I expect during vein treatments?

Your laser session is performed right in the office and lasts just 15-30 minutes. The treatment feels like a rubber band snapping against your skin but keeps you comfortable with a built-in cooling system that produces continuous cooling before, during, and after each laser pulse.

Following treatment, you may have some redness or swelling in treated areas. These side effects resolve within a few days. You don’t need to take official time off though, and you can wear makeup and participate in normal activities right after treatment.

Exactly how many treatments you’ll need depends on the size, thickness, and color of the issue being treated. Superficial vascular lesions, such as small spider veins and diffused redness, can show significant improvement after just one treatment. Other vascular skin issues may require follow-up appointments for optimal results.
