What is Laser Vein Removal?
Usually located on the face and legs, spider veins are small, branching blood vessels that are visible through the skin. Caused by many factors, like age and genetics, spider veins may be blue, red, and purple, which makes them difficult to conceal. Since spider veins usually get worse over the years and lead to greater visibility, it is important to get treatment at the first signs. To minimize the appearance of blood vessels on the face and body, Cameron Wellness Center and Spa offers nonsurgical laser vein removal sessions for Salt Lake City, UT patients. At your private consultation, our team will develop a customized plan to meet your needs and goals for your laser vein reduction treatment.
LASER VEIN REMOVAL faq
How much does laser vein removal cost?
A laser vein removal treatment is priced by the number of veins being addressed and how many sessions are suggested for optimal results. In your initial consultation, your technician will assess your veins, the size and location of them, and develop your custom treatment plan to help establish your cost. Cameron Wellness Center and Spa offers numerous payment methods, and we offer deals on treatments.
Should I get laser vein removal or sclerotherapy?
Treatments with laser vein removal can help veins of all sizes and types. Based on your veins, laser treatments might be better than others, depending on your goals. The laser works well on some veins; however, some patients might prefer sclerotherapy, which treats the vein by injecting a special solution. Larger veins, such as varicose veins, respond well to laser vein treatments; however, if the vein is large and bulging, surgery might be recommended. We will help you select your best treatment method, depending on your concerns and goals.
Does the vein go away?
A laser vein treatment will address the vein with a focused beam of light that affects the vein and then destroys it. The laser is very precise and focuses on the vein so it won't damage the nearby skin. Once the vein has collapsed, it takes about 4 – 6 weeks for the vein to be reabsorbed by the body and fade away.
Where can laser vein removal be used?
Unwanted spider veins may be located on your face, thighs, back of the legs, and near the ankles. In most areas of the face and body, laser vein removal may be an appropriate treatment method. Our advanced laser uses precision as it targets the selected vein so the nearby tissue and skin are generally unharmed.
Is laser vein removal painful?
Prior to your treatment, we may put on an ointment or local anesthetic to numb the area. Some patients feel a mild tingling or snap when the laser is aimed at the vein. Many laser systems on the market, including ours, are equipped with a built-in system that helps produce a cooling effect. This decreases discomfort while at the same time prevents the laser from getting too hot, which can result in a burn or additional damage to your skin.
