About Laser Vein Removal

Commonly found on the legs and face, spider veins are small, branching blood vessels that are visible through the skin. Caused by age, genetics, and other factors, spider veins can be purple, red, and blue, which makes them difficult to conceal. Since spider veins usually progress over time and lead to greater visibility, it's important to seek treatment at the first signs. To reduce the appearance of spider veins on the face and body, Advanced Plastic Surgery Center offers noninvasive laser vein removal for Arlington, VA men and women. In your private consultation, plastic surgeons Dr. Talal Munasifi and Dr. James Economides will create a personalized plan based on your unique needs and goals for your laser vein treatment. Call our Arlington, VA office to learn more.

Procedure Technique

Laser vein treatments are performed in our Arlington, VA office as an outpatient procedure in about 20 – 40 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas being treated. During your laser vein procedure, you will lay comfortably in a private treatment room as the affected area is cleansed and prepared. If requested, a topical anesthetic can be applied before your treatment to lessen any potential discomfort. The handheld laser device is passed over the area so the energy can target the veins through a series of pulses without affecting the surrounding tissues. The vessel absorbs the laser energy, which collapses and closes the vessel wall. You will be able to leave our office right after the treatment to resume your normal activities.

What to Expect

After your laser vein removal treatment, you may experience swelling, redness, and bruising, but these symptoms should subside within 7 – 10 days. For faster healing, support or compression garments should be worn to improve your blood circulation. It's important to avoid prolonged sun exposure and you should apply sunscreen frequently to treated areas. Some patients may see visible improvements immediately but results will vary for each patient. During your initial consultation with Dr. Munasifi, realistic expectations will be discussed along with recommendations on how many sessions are needed to achieve your best results. New spider veins will probably develop over time, so more treatments may be needed every few years.
