Laser Vein Removal

We use the Lumenis SPLENDOR X laser to treat spider veins on the legs and broken capillaries on the face quickly and effectively.  The laser targets hemoglobin (the pigment in blood) to essentially collapse the surface blood vessel and divert blood to deeper, non-visible veins.  Immediately following treatment, darkening of the vessels may be apparent, with slight redness along the vessel.  

There is no downtime after treatment, however we recommend avoiding hot baths/ tubs and strenuous exercise for 1-2 weeks following treatment.  Generally, 2-3 sessions in 6–8-week intervals are needed.  Clearance of the veins takes place in the weeks following each treatment as they slowly fade away.  

We cannot treat varicose or bulging veins.
