With laser vein removal, Inland Empire board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Childers and the professionals at Sheer Beauty can treat a variety of veins on the legs, including spider veins and blush-colored (reticular) veins. Compared to traditional surgery that leaves scars, laser vein removal is noninvasive and uses the light of the laser to constrict the blood vessels in the leg in order to make the unwanted vein disappear. These treatments provide excellent results and sessions are short, around 30 minutes or less. There is no downtime, so you’ll be right back on your feet after laser vein removal.

Before the treatment begins, the doctor or technician cover the patient’s eyes with protective eyewear. Once the patient is ready, the doctor or technician will pass the laser handpiece over the areas of the face and body that have visible blood vessels. The Cynosure MPX Elite system applies multiple wavelengths of light that can are absorbed by the blood vessel, which destroy the spider vein for a smoother appearance to the skin.
During/After The Procedure@headingTag>
Laser vein treatment may cause some temporary redness, bruising, and blistering to the treated skin, but this should disappear in 2 weeks – 2 months. Patients are advised to rest and avoid strenuous activity after their treatment, and patients should cover the treated areas or use other protection from any sun exposure. For best results, patients may need multiple treatments over the course of several months. For a faster recovery, patients may consider wearing support stockings to help promote better blood circulation.

Laser Vein Removal FAQs@headingTag>
Patients who are good candidates for laser vein removal have visible veins on their body, including the thighs and lower legs, that cause them to avoid shorts and swimsuits out of embarrassment. Some patients also develop spider veins on their face, which can be minimized or erased by laser vein therapy. Patients should be in good general health before the procedure and should tell their doctor if they have a history of blood clots or may be pregnant.
Laser Vs. Sclerotherapy?@headingTag>
Laser vein removal is best for larger veins, while scelrotherapy is best for removing smaller veins or if used with laser vein removal. Veins treated with laser vein removal have a smaller chance of returning than if sclerotherapy alone is used. The doctor will help each patient determine their best treatment choice based on their specific concerns and goals.
Spider or Varicose Veins?@headingTag>
Spider veins are the smaller veins that are often on the surface of the skin and most patients want these removed for cosmetic reasons. Varicose veins are thicker veins that can cause swelling, cramping, itching, and may continue to grow if not treated.
