Laser Spider Vein Removal
Forever Young Medical Day Spa offers expert treatment of spider veins . If you have spider veins or vascular lesions on the face or body, we can remove them safely and effectively. Areas with larger or numerous vessels may require multiple treatments but if you have a small area of a few vessels they can be removed in one treatment.
With Laser Spider Vien Removal, you can expect a slightly reddened, “scratched” and sometimes slightly swollen appearance on the treated area for a few short days. Veins completely vanish within two to four weeks.
Pre & Post-procedure instructions for Laser Spider Vein Removal
Prior to the Procedure
Avoid tanning, sun exposure and lotions
Do not expose treatment area to the sun or a tanning bed or booth at least 4 - 6 weeks before treatment.
Tanned skin may cause blistering and possibly hypo pigmentation, identified as white spots, lasting for several months.
Avoid tanning lotions and creams around the treatment area for at least 10 days before treatment.
Taking high doses of iron other than a regular multi-vitamin?
It may increase susceptibility to hyper pigmentation, characterized by increased pigment or brown spots. If pigmentation is affected, it's usually temporary.
Clients with poor circulation (i.e. diabetes), taking blood thinners (Coumadin, Warfarin, daily aspirin, etc.) may have poor or delayed healing if treated with the laser for leg veins.
Cold packs ease any temporary discomfort. Tylenol is recommended for discomfort if necessary.
Care should be taken to prevent trauma to the treated area for the first 24 hours following treatment. Be careful shaving. Be aware of products with abrasive cleaners that could interrupt the natural healing process. Avoid any strenuous workouts, hot tubs and spas for 48 hours after treatment.
At home treatments
If the skin is broken or a blister appears, apply any topical antibiotic, such as Bacitracin or Neosporin. Keep the affected area covered and avoid direct sunlight while experiencing these symptoms.
Remember—stay away from sun or tanning booth until the treatment area completely heals.
Stay upbeat—healing takes time
Spider veins often appear worse before they appear better. If the vein disappeared during a laser session and it reappears later, it may look darker in color. If this occurs it should slowly reabsorb by your body within 1—2 months.
If subsequent treatments are needed, wait at least 2 months before the next treatment
