VEIN REMOVAL BY BOARD CERTIFIED CARDIOVASCULAR SURGEON
Unwanted veins on the face, legs, and body can cause a patient a lot of embarrassment. Covering veins with makeup can be nearly impossible due to their dark color that contrasts so much with skin tone. Because of this, many women and men who suffer from unwanted spider veins seek medical treatment to permanently eliminate their spider veins. What was once a difficult procedure has been made easy thanks to the advanced laser technology as well as sclerotherapy techniques employed in our Thousand Oaks office. At the Renaissance Laser and Vein Institute, our spider vein treatments are virtually pain-free and take only 15 to 30 minutes from start to finish. In order to target the unwanted spider veins, we often use a laser that targets the pigmentation in the vein, sending a blast of laser energy to that pigment and essentially obliterating the vein. During the spider vein treatment, the vein should close permanently, and begins to fade away within one to two months. The end result is beautiful, even-toned skin unmarred by a criss-cross of unsightly spider veins.
To permanently obliterate an unwanted spider vein, it can take anywhere from a single treatment to three or four spider vein treatments. It always depends upon the patient’s particular body and vasculature, although most spider veins can be effectively eliminated in two to three easy, and highly tolerable treatments. The beauty of spider vein treatments is that the patient no longer has to worry about the embarrassment of covering up their body, and can show off their legs and face without worrying about people staring at their unwanted spider veins.
