Although visible veins on the face, legs, and other parts of the body are not always a cause for medical concern, at SCULPT Contemporary Cosmetic Surgery we understand that having visible veins can make men and women feel self-conscious about their appearance, and our laser vein removal with the Cutera xeo® aesthetic laser system can help.
Serving the greater Omaha area in Nebraska, SCULPT is led by Dr. Gerard Stanley. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how laser vein removal can improve the appearance of your skin without vein removal surgery or downtime.
Q. What is Laser Vein Removal?
Having visible spider veins on the surface of the skin is a common aesthetic concern for many men and women. While vein removal procedures of the past were more extensive and required downtime for patients, advancements in laser technology have made it possible to clear nuisance veins from the skin without any disruption to your daily activities.
Q. How Does Laser Vein Removal Work?
Using the advanced Cutera xeo® multi-function laser platform, Dr. Stanley and our medical team will direct a pulse of light-based energy into the treatment area. The light is designed to bypass the surface safely without injury, targeting the pigment in underlying blood vessels. Once the light is absorbed by the targeted veins, it disrupts the lining, causing the vein to permanently seal shut. This reroutes blood to healthier veins and turns the treated veins into scar tissue that is eventually removed by the body.
Throughout your treatment, cooling pads are placed on the skin for patient comfort and safety. This is a well-tolerated procedure, and even sensitive areas such as the cheeks can be treated with minimal discomfort.
Q. Is There Any Downtime?
Laser vein removal requires no downtime, and most patients return to normal activities directly after, although a daily walking regimen is sometimes suggested to maintain good circulation while the body works to remove the veins. As this treatment promotes the body’s natural healing response, areas may appear pink or flushed for the first day. Patients who qualify typically experience no complications, and Dr. Stanley and our medical team will share all relevant safety information with you prior to treatment.
Although laser vein removal with the Cutera xeo® permanently removes veins from the body, it may still be possible to develop visible veins in the future.
