SAFE AND EFFECTIVE LASER VEIN THERAPY IN SAN JOSE, CA

What is Laser Vein Therapy?

Laser Vein Therapy is a safe, gentle, and effective way to get rid of unwanted blood vessels on the face and body. Laser energy targets the pigment in the blood and warms the vessel without damaging the skin or surrounding tissues. Over time (usually in 4-6 weeks) the vein is reabsorbed by the body and disappears. Blood gets rerouted to healthier veins.

More than one session may be required for optimal results, depending on the number, color and size of the veins. Sessions will be scheduled approximately four weeks apart. Good candidates for Laser Vein Therapy are those who are non-smokers in overall good health and has realistic expectations for the procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

Pros

  • Most procedures are quick and don’t require downtime.
  • Most treatments have few side effects—usually just temporary pain and swelling.

Cons

  • In some cases, lasers can cause temporary or permanent skin-pigment changes.
  • Sclerotherapy and lasers for spider veins usually require multiple sessions.
  • Vein issues can reappear in one or two years, so maintenance treatments are often needed.

Laser vein removal can make spider veins fade, without any incisions or needles. The strong light beam from the laser causes them to dry up, but a few sessions are usually needed.

If the veins are more prominent, your doctor may recommend endovenous laser vein removal, in which they make a small incision and insert a laser-enhanced fiber into the vein. The heat energy will close the vein, and as in simple laser treatments, the vein will disappear over months. There’s no downtime, but you may have bruising or discomfort for a couple of weeks.
