Are you ready to stop covering up?

Are you ready to show your face without having to camouflage those unsightly spider veins? Are you ready to wear skirts, shorts and swimming apparel without feeling embarrassed by the prominent branching spider veins visible on your thighs and legs?

Let’s face it, no-one likes spider veins. Leg and facial veins are quite the nuisance – bothersome at best, unattractive at worst. Left untreated, spider veins could worsen with time. Fortunately, with cosmetic laser spider vein removal, you can now make yourself look and feel a whole lot better, with as little as two to three spider vein removal treatments.

Benefits of Spider Vein Removal

  • Laser is an excellent option for the treatment of spider veins
  • Can treat any vascular spots (e.g. cherry angiomas)
  • Safe, fast and effective
  • Non-invasive, chemical free
  • No needles or incisions
  • Minimal discomfort

How does spider vein removal work?

Our special laser targets the vascular blood vessels. The heat generated from the laser shrinks the blood vessels causing them to collapse and seal. Over the next few weeks, the vessels will diminish.

Our laser spider view removal treatment delivers the precise amount of energy to each individual blood vessel and provides contact cooling for protection of the surrounding skin tissue.

What can I expect after laser vein removal treatment?

Immediately after treatment there may be some minor redness, slight swelling, bruising and discoloration. When being treated on the face, these effects will disappear within a few days if they occur. When being treated on the legs, these effects can last up to 6 weeks due to thicker more resilient skin. We highly recommend Boiron Arnicare Gel be used post treatment to help decrease any swelling and/or bruising from the procedure. This can be purchased directly through Mill Creek Skin & Laser.

What’s the difference between spider veins vs. varicose veins?

Spider veins are small clusters of tiny blood vessels that develop closer to the surface of the skin. They are often red or blue and have short jagged lines, comparable to a tree branch or a spider web. Spider veins can be found on both the legs and the face, which are easily treatable with laser therapy. Varicose veins tend to appear on the legs and are abnormally bulging in nature. At Mill Creek Skin & Laser we only treat spider veins; varicose veins would need to be treated by a vascular specialist.

How many spider vein removal treatments are needed?

Typically two to three treatments are required depending on the area, and results can be seen anywhere from three to six weeks. Treatment time usually varies depending on the size of the area to be treated.

What causes spider veins?

Spider veins are very common in adults and are typically visible on the face or legs. A number of factors predispose a person to spider veins including:

  • Genetics
  • Aging
  • Trauma or injury to the skin
  • Sun exposure
  • Use of oral contraceptives
  • Pregnancy
  • Hormone therapy
  • Occupations that require a lot of standing
  • Unknown reasons

Why choose laser vein removal over sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy involves needles and a chemical that is injected into your body. Not everyone enjoys getting poked with needles, it can be painful, and there is the possibility of an allergic reaction to the actual chemical. You will have to wear compression hose (and they are expensive) up to 6 weeks after sclerotherapy.
Generally, no recovery time is needed with sclerotherapy however you may need anywhere from one to several treatments. Sclerotherapy does come with a host of side effects and some complications. We do not perform sclerotherapy at Mill Creek Skin & Laser.

Laser vein removal treatment is very precise and more effectively targets smaller areas and finer veins than is usual in sclerotherapy. Laser vein removal treatment is ideal for those veins not suitable for sclerotherapy or for patients with a needle phobia or have an allergy to sclerotherapy agents. Laser vein removal is fast and safe with minimal discomfort. There is little downtime and side effects are minimal. You will need to protect the areas treated from sun exposure.
