Spider veins—small, web- or branch-like discolorations—and other unsightly vascular lesions on the legs or face are usually caused by “venous reflux” due to weaknesses in the small capillaries just below the skin. Although they may be inconspicuous at first, unfortunately over time they usually become easily visible through the skin and can affect your self-esteem, your self-confidence, and even what you choose to wear! Fortunately, advanced laser technology is now able to reduce the discoloration caused by these small vascular lesions safely, quickly, and more effectively than ever before.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards, together with certified laser specialist Lynette Stephens, at their state-of-the-art Medical Spa and Laser Center located in Las Vegas, NV, will work closely with you to develop a customized laser-based treatment plan designed to leave your legs smooth and naturally-beautiful. Utilizing the cutting-edge Cutera xeo® YAG laser, Ms. Stephens can help reduce the appearance of spider veins and other small vascular lesions without injections, needles, or surgery!
Your Vein/Vascular Lesion Treatment
Vascular concerns like spider veins occur when one-way valves inside the vein become weak and damaged, causing blood in the vein to back up and pool in the small blood vessels—capillaries—located just underneath the skin. Laser-based treatments with the Cutera xeo® offer an effective, non-surgical tool to minimize the visible discoloration caused by this mild to moderate vascular damage. The precisely-calibrated laser targets the affected vein with light, which, when absorbed by the pigment in the blood as heat, coagulates the blood and allows the capillary to collapse. Over the course of several weeks, the destroyed vessel is painlessly reabsorbed by the body, minimizing the appearance of discoloration in the skin.
Laser treatment is minimally-invasive and the Cutera xeo® YAG laser includes a cooling tip to help keep the surface of the skin cool. Still, some patients may require use of a local anesthetic or mild sedative to help minimize the potential for discomfort. Most patients can return to normal activities immediately. Multiple treatments may be required for optimal results. Laser vein treatment is not appropriate for large varicose veins.
