About Vein Removal

The onslaught of time tends to take a toll on the human body in various ways, with one such example of evidence being the appearance of spider veins. Spider veins occur when blood vessels become small, twisted, and noticeable through the skin as various colored squiggle-like lines in a manner reminiscent of a spider’s web. Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Frank L. Stile at Stile Aesthetics in Las Vegas, NV, can successfully treat and remove spider veins through the employment of the state-of-the-art laser treatment of the CUTERA CoolGlide System. The results are a facial profile, thighs, and legs that are absent of spider veins and gives you yet another reason to be confident in your skin's appearance.

Ideal Candidates

The ideal candidate for this procedure would be any individual currently suffering from spider veins. These unsightly tiny red and purple veins can occur for many reasons. In the lower body and legs, spider veins may be caused by pregnancy, prolonged sitting or standing, injury, or trauma. Spider veins can also occur in various areas of the face such as, the cheeks, nose, forehead, and chin; becoming enlarged and darker over time. Chronic sun exposure and inherited predisposition to vein conditions have been known to cause spider veins. While you may benefit from this procedure if you have spider veins, patients should make certain they are in general good health prior to this procedure. Patients should also inform Dr. Stile if they may be pregnant or have a history of blood clots.

What To Expect

The treatment entails aiming the handheld Cutera CoolGlide laser device at the targeted area, and then applying multiple wavelengths of light energy through quick pulses. The energy easily passes through the tissue but lands upon the afflicted blood vessels within the spider veins. The spider veins of that area absorb the light energy, causing coagulation of the blood vessel, and then ultimately leading to the blood vessel being absorbed by the body as part of the body’s natural response. Blood flow from these veins are naturally diverted to different veins upon their absorption. The treatment time for this procedure usually takes 15 – 30 minutes.

Anticipated Results

Prior to the treatment starting, our professional staff will cover the patient’s eyes with protective eyewear, should the targeted area be located on the face. The handheld laser will then be gently guided over the targeted area containing the blood vessels. Some patients note they experience a stinging feeling; while local anesthesia or pain medication is not usually required, topical anesthetic can be made available prior to treatment if requested. After treatment, bruising can be a common side effect, with blistering in very rare occasions. These side effects can persist from anywhere between 2 weeks to 2 months. The temporary aversion to strenuous exercise, hot baths, and heavy contact from sunlight are generally recommended for optimal healing.
