Visible veins on your face and body are distracting, but these cosmetic concerns can be easily remedied with laser vein treatment. Texas Dermatology offers laser vein treatment for residents of San Antonio, Kenedy, New Braunfels, and other areas of Texas.
What is Laser Vein Treatment?
Laser vein treatment is an outpatient procedure that we offer at our practice to eliminate visible veins on the face and body. You develop spider veins and broken capillaries when the blood does not flow through the vein properly. Typically, the condition is caused by a flap in the vein that should close to prevent the back flow of blood. If the flap does not close, the blood will remain inside the vein, causing it to enlarge and eventually burst. Laser vein treatment safely destroys these damaged veins so that blood will flow through the surrounding healthier veins.
How Much Does Laser Vein Treatment Cost?
The cost of laser vein treatment varies because each patient has unique needs. After you meet with Dr. Browning or one of our other dermatologists for a consultation, we can review the cost with you. Texas Dermatology does accept CareCredit® as a financing option for our patients.
What Are the Benefits of Laser Vein Treatment?
Spider veins are not necessarily of medical concern, but people wish to have them treated due to the aesthetics of the condition. Our laser vein treatments are performed in our office and require no downtime or extensive, painful surgery.
What is Facial Vein Treatment?
Facial veins are among the most bothersome types of damaged veins in the body because you cannot hide any flaw on your face. Facial vein treatment uses various laser technologies to destroy the veins without changing or damaging the surrounding skin and tissues.
What Are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are the most common type of damaged vein that we treat. These veins appear just below the surface of the skin and have a tiny, web-like appearance. The veins may be red, bluish, or purple. Treating spider veins on the face requires specialized laser technology because the skin is so delicate.
Am I a Candidate for Laser Vein Treatment?
If you have visible veins that are bothering you, either on your face or body, our laser vein treatments might be right for you. We do advise our patients to be evaluated by their primary physicians first to ensure that an underlying circulatory problem is not causing the spider veins.
How is Laser Vein Treatment Performed?
Texas Dermatology offer laser vein treatment with the Gentle Max Pearl for spider veins, as well as sclerotherapy. The laser treatments are performed at the surface of the skin. Sclerotherapy involves injecting a substance into the vein that causes it to stick together and eventually be absorbed by the body. Little to no recovery is needed after these treatments.
