Erase broken capillaries with minimal side effects
For Your Face, Chest and Legs
Laser vein treatment of telangiectasia (spider veins or broken capillaries on the face and chest of men and women) is available using the Candela GENTLEYAG® Aesthetic Laser from the Candela Corporation and the Palomar StarLux YAG Laser from the Palomar Company. We are able to clear spider veins or broken capillaries with minimal to no unpleasant side effects. We have two lasers to choose from so we definitely have the right treatment for you.
The YAG Laser works by transmitting laser light through the skin to the tiny blood vessels or spider veins being treated. As the laser light is absorbed, it is converted into heat, which is conducted to the surrounding walls of the vessels. If enough damage is done to the walls of these tiny veins, the circulatory system will not be able to repair it, and there will be complete disappearance. This occurs in 2-5 treatments in most cases. Often, spider veins on the cheeks and nose are cleared in just ONE treatment.
The laser for spider vein treatment face and legs delivers energy more slowly than the quick blast of earlier spider vein lasers, which caused blood vessels to rupture; resulting in bruising that lasted several weeks. Now the vessels are treated over a longer period of time and therefore stay intact during treatment. THIS MEANS NO BRUSING!
Good candidates for spider vein laser treatment have light to medium skin tone which is not tanned or recently exposed to the sun. Small spider veins and rosacea on the face can be effectively treated by the YAG Laser. Rosacea and diffuse redness can be best treated with a PHOTOFACIAL OR IPL (link) treatment. Large or varicose veins (blue in color) are not effectively treated by this method.
What parts of the body can be treated?
We can perform spider vein laser treatment on the face, chest and legs with great results. Also, cherry angioma's can be treated in 1-2 treatments.
What is the cost of laser spider vein treatment?
Cost may vary depending on the density of veins and size of area. However, as an estimate, you may expect $150 per treatment area. Consultations are complimentary and you will receive a firm cost during your consultation at Advanced Laser & Skin Center.
