Spider Vein Treatment in Los Angeles, CA
No matter how great your legs look, if you have spider veins, total attention is drawn to them. Along with his aesthetics team, Kian Karimi, MD, FACS, double board-certified plastic surgeon at Rejuva Medical Aesthetics, treats people living in and around Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and Brentwood, CA, with spider veins using laser vein removal to diminish and eliminate their appearance revealing sexy, smooth legs.
What are Spider Veins?
Commonly seen on legs, spider veins are the thin veins on the surface of the skin that are dark red or purple. They are most common on the legs but may appear elsewhere on the body. Spider veins appear when the blood traveling through the veins tries to flow backwards. This causes the veins to go to the surface of the skin and swell. While they are harmless, they may be unsightly, especially if there are large areas of spider veins.
How Are Spider Veins Treated?
At Rejuva Medical Aesthetics, we use laser vein removal to diminish and eliminate the appearance of spider veins and other vascular lesions, such as telangiectasia, often in only one treatment. With laser vein removal, the laser selectively heats veins causing them to collapse and fade or disappear.
Benefits of Spider Vein Treatment
In addition to eliminating the appearance of spider veins, treatments provide other benefits including:
- Quick procedure
- No pain or discomfort
- Minimum number of treatments
- No downtime or recovery
- Permanent results
Who Is the Ideal Candidate for Spider Vein Treatment?
Spider veins can cause a negative self-image due to their appearance. Spider vein treatments are ideal for anyone with a small or large amount of visible imperfections. Since laser vein removal treats the issue without harming healthy skin tissue, it is safe for all skin types.
How Do I Prepare for My Spider Vein Treatment?
It is recommended that you do not shave or apply lotion the day before treatment. If your treatment is planned for a future date, we recommend you avoid direct exposure from the sun on the area where the treatment is to be performed to protect the skin from developing dark pigmentation.
What Should I Expect on the Day of My Spider Vein Treatment?
With laser vein removal, we simply place a hand-held laser device directly on the visible veins. The laser light sends energy and heat to the veins, which causes them to collapse. At that point, no blood can pass through them and is rerouted to other veins. As the vein collapses, the blood dissipates and is no longer visible under the skin.
How Long Does It Take to Perform Laser Vein Removal?
Most spider vein treatments take no more than 30 minutes to an hour to complete. Depending on the extent of the condition or the number of areas with visible spider veins, you may require several sessions to achieve the desired look.
What to Expect After Spider Vein Treatment
There is no recovery or downtime following your spider vein treatment so you may return to your daily routine. It is recommended that you walk after your treatment to ensure blood flow through the new veins and to speed up healing.
When Will I See the Results?
With laser vein removal, the results are noticeable and get better over time. It takes about a month for the body to completely absorb the collapsed veins. At that point, there should be little to no sign of spider veins. While the results for the treated veins are permanent, it is possible to develop new spider veins.
How Much Does Spider Vein Treatment Cost in Los Angeles?
Laser spider vein removal varies with cost based on the extent of the spider veins and how many treatments are necessary to achieve the desired appearance. During your consultation, we can review the costs as well as payment and financing options.
