Laser Vein Removal Los Angeles

Laser vein removal is an easy, fast, and effective way to treat superficial veins of the face and chest. Besides the application of lasers in treating fine superficial veins, lasers can be effectively used for treating dilated and prominent blue veins in sensitive areas such as the chest, cheeks, temples, and under eye area.

When applied to the face, the more rejuvenated and youthful look can be amazing. More about facial reticular and spider vein laser treatment.

In addition, lasers have become an important tool for the treatment of some vascular deformities such as hemangiomas and port wine stains.

LASER SPIDER VEIN REMOVAL OF CHEST VEINS

Note that although topical lasers are very effective in eliminating facial and chest spider veins, they are less effective for removing leg spider veins. Moreover, leg spider vein removal with vascular lasers ends up being a lot more painful than a comparable sclerotherapy vein treatment.

The laser technology used for leg vein removal is known as Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT). This technique uses a laser fiber inserted in a vein to treat venous reflux and remove varicose veins of the leg.

Spider and Reticular Laser Vein Removal

A precise dosage of light is pulsed through a special handpiece to the targeted vein or a red skin area. The absorbed light causes thermocoagulation (or clogging) of the treated blood vessels. As a consequence, the damaged veins are sealed off from the normal, healthy vascular system. Over the course of time, the treated veins are gradually absorbed and then cleared through the body’s natural healing system.

Lasers Used in Our Laser Vein Removal Center

Advances in technology have helped develop many lasers for different medical uses. Dr. Dishakjian of our laser vein removal center uses only the most advanced laser and light sources. These include the Nd:YAG laser manufactured by Cutera® and Sciton’s Intense Pulse Light (IPL) system.

The Cutera® Nd: YAG laser, equipped with a contact copper cooling tip, not only is the most powerful laser for veins, but it is also the most versatile laser in treating reticular veins and spider veins of all sizes, colors, and depths. Very fine and microscopic facial veins, broken capillaries, and other spider veins, on the other hand, are best treated with Sciton’s Intense Pulse Light (IPL).

Number of Laser Sessions Needed

Normally, only one laser vein treatment session is necessary. in some cases, however, several treatment sessions are needed for optimal results.

What to Expect During and After a Treatment

The combination of the effective cooling system and routine use of topical anesthetic cream keeps the discomfort during laser vein removal to a minimum level. When our vein surgeon, Dr. Raffi Dishakjian applies a pulse of laser light, you may feel like a pinch similar to a snapping rubber band. Often, the treated veins disappear immediately, but in some cases, it may take a number of weeks to do so.

During the few days following a session, the laser-treated skin will be red and the veins may darken. You may also experience some bruising and swelling of the treated area, which normally resolves within a week or so. Any blistering that occasionally occurs normally heals within a week with conservative treatments.

Combination Vein Treatments

Sometimes, the best vein removal results are achieved using a custom-designed combination of procedures. Accordingly, your vein doctor may use a combination of sclerotherapy, foam sclerotherapy, IPL, and laser therapy.

When applied to leg vein removal, the outcome is rejuvenated, healthy looking legs with better circulation. The treatments may also result in the elimination of pain caused by varicose or spider veins that may have plagued you for years.
