Vein Laser treatment

Vein Laser Therapy

The most popular treatments at Albany Laser are for broken capillaries (small vessels, generally found on the face) or spider veins (small-medium sized typically found along the legs).

Albany Laser treats spider and facial veins with the gold standard Nd-YAG laser. Laser treatments typically last 15 to 25 minutes. In most cases, up to four treatments are required to eradicate spider veins in the legs or on the face. There is minimal downtime, so you may resume your typical activities immediately following treatment.

How Vein Laser Therapy Works

The laser coagulates the blood in the blood vessel, crushing the targeted vein. After that, the body heals the wound and absorbs the coagulated blood vessel.

During the treatment, our cutting-edge integrated cooling handpiece protects the surrounding skin. We improve the comfort and safety of the therapy by chilling the treated skin.

Use a laser that actually works. Don't waste your money on Groupons or places with lasers that won't give you results. Highly recommend.

Had ulthera and fotonic laser, and it went great. I put it off all through Covid; so glad I finally went for it. Dariane was lovely to work with, and everything went smoothly. Can’t wait to see the final result!

How does Vein Laser Therapy work?

Laser radiation is focused on the veins, causing them to collapse and, ideally, to disappear. Bruising is common in laser-treated areas and can linger for many weeks. Lasers are particularly well-suited to treating tiny spider veins when a needle cannot be used due to their size.

Other vascular flaws treated with the Nd-Yag laser at Albany Laser include:

  • Telangiectasia: These are thin red lines visible on the skin’s surface. These are most typically found near the nose and cheeks.
  • Cherry angiomas: are a collection of dilated capillaries that resemble elevated moles but are red or ruby in color.

Session Duration

Each Vein Laser Therapy session lasts between 15 and 20 minutes, including applying the freezing lidocaine cream and completing the forms.

Discomfort level

None to mild, we use a forced-air chiller during the laser session

Session Numbers

For optimum Vein Laser Therapy results, two to four sessions are required. One week following therapy, the results are visible.

Therapy Downtime

The Vein Laser Therapy treatment is very well tolerated, but patients may notice redness for 48 hours

Session Frequency

Vein Laser Therapy can be repeated every two to four weeks
Treatment results
Total disappearance of the capillaries after 4 treatments

Vein Laser Treatment FAQs

Yag laser treatment is very easy. Patients can expect to feel like they have sunburn when surgery. Topical lubricants and steroid creams can help the healing process, so we suggest using them on your body to help.
During the consultation where we assess the causes and best treatments for your spider veins and other vein lesions,” Dr. Kamal explained in his Edmonton office. “Once we’ve developed a treatment plan, we’ll be able to begin treatment.” In many cases, one or two sessions will be enough to nearly eliminate your spider veins and cherry angiomas. If you have a lot of spider veins, it may take several visits to get rid of them all. Nonetheless, the majority of clients will see a 90% to 100% reduction in spider veins. This makes wearing skirts and shorts much more comfortable. There is also evidence that spider veins can cause leg pain, fatigue, burning, throbbing, and heaviness. “You’ll feel a lot better about yourself if they’re on your face.” It can remove years from your appearance in just a few minutes.” Dr. Kamal then went on to discuss the history of laser treatments for vascular problems.
Some patients will have mild swelling and bruising for about two weeks after using the Nd: Yag laser to treat large veins in their legs. In this case, the Nd: Yag can be used for non-ablative skin rejuvenation, which means very little downtime.
The cost of these laser treatments varies based on where the treatment is done, the laser, and the condition that needs care. Between $150 and $500, you can get a single session
No, but if you have a history of shingle, then we recommend taking some antiviral medications such as Valtrex
After treatment, cold (not frozen) packs should be used to cool the treatment site, reduce swelling, and ease the pain. If the temperature of the chemical cold packs is less than 4 degrees celsius, they should not be used. Frozen 4 x 4 gauze pads that have been wet with water and put in small plastic bags can be used. During the first three days after treatment, there should be no hot baths, no aerobic exercise, no massages, and no hot packs. Sunscreen with a high factor (30–50 SPF) should be used by patients at least one month after treatment. They should keep the treated area out of the sun for at least that long. Tanning after treatment sessions may speed up the growth of melanin, which could cause hyperpigmentation. Patients can apply makeup right away after treatment. However, if the treatment site starts to scale and cake, we tell the patient to stop. During this time, the skin may be more sensitive. Trying to remove makeup, especially if it’s hard to get off, could hurt the skin and make the area more vulnerable to infection.

Laser vein treatment instructions

Before the treatment

Before you have spider vein treatment, here are some things to do. Because these medications can make bleeding and bruising worse, don’t take Aspirin or other blood-thinning drugs (like Vitamin E or Ginkgo Biloba) for one week before and one week after your treatment because they can make bleeding and bruising worse, even if you don’t take them at all. Because alcohol makes blood thinner, we advise you not to drink alcohol or smoke for a couple of days before and two days after your treatment. Smoking also slows or stops bleeding. Take care of your legs the night before or on the day of your treatment by not applying any creams, lotions, oils, or self-tanners to your legs. Make sure not to come on an empty stomach, please eat something small or have a snack about 1.5 hours before your laser treatment. When reticular veins are treated, you should not fly for 48 hours. If you get sick before your appointment, you’ll have to reschedule.
