What are Spider Veins (Vein Treatment)?
Also known as teangiectasias, spider veins are small purple, red and blue blood vessels that can make an appearance on your face and thighs. Dr. Barry DiBernardo and the cosmetic experts at New Jersey Plastic Surgery® perform cutting-edge laser vein treatment to help those patients who are afflicted with spider veins. New Jersey Plastic Surgery®’s commitment to the latest advances in medical laser technology means that we have the ability to deliver a precise dosage of energy targeted to each vein.
Benefits of Spider Veins Treatment
At New Jersey Plastic Surgery® we’re committed to the latest advances in laser vein treatment technology, which enables pinpoint precision in targeting spider veins for treatment. This gives you better results, the main benefit of spider veins treatment, because by delivering pulses of laser energy along the length of the vessel, starting with larger veins first, blood within the vein coagulates, destroying the vessel from within.
What is the Procedure for Spider Veins Treatment?
During your treatment, light energy is delivered through a sophisticated laser handpiece that enables Dr. DiBernardo to deliver a precisely targeted dosage of energy to each vein. The targeted blood vessels absorb the light energy, but the surrounding tissues are not affected. It is this heat absorption that engenders the coagulation of the blood vessel and its subsequent reabsorption back into your body. Most patients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure, although some patients experience a mild burning sensation when the laser is pulsed.
Preparing for Spider Veins Treatment
The only preparation necessary for spider vein treatment at New Jersey Plastic Surgery® is scheduling your consultation now and meeting with a New Jersey Plastic Surgery® surgeon during your in-house consultation to discuss your spider vein issue. We will assess your treatment options and recommend a course of action based on identifying the veins to be treated.
Recovery from Spider Veins Treatment
Depending on the size and depth of the veins related to your spider vein issue, the number of treatments required will vary. With the goal of long-term resolution, Dr. DiBernardo may recommend multiple treatments, staggered at three to four-week intervals. During your recovery from individual treatment sessions, it may be recommended that you wear compression support stockings to apply pressure to the veins and help in keeping the treated veins closed. Within a week, any potential bruising should disappear. There may be some temporary discoloration in your skin pigmentation while larger veins are resolved. Dr. DiBernardo recommends that for optimal outcomes in laser leg vein therapy, patients should avoid taking hot baths and undergoing strenuous exercise, but otherwise, you can resume your normal activities immediately.
