Laser Vein Therapy in Asheville, NC

Laser Vein Therapy is the best laser skin care treatment for spider veins on the face or small leg vessels, typically caused by rosacea or sun damage.  Spider veins do not serve any purpose, in fact, these veins are dysfunctional and having them treated can improve circulation as blood is rerouted to healthier veins. Multiple treatments may be necessary, but progress is significant after one treatment.

Patients generally come in for maintenance once or twice a year to maintain results.  Common areas treated are:

  • Nose
  • Cheeks
  • Lower leg
  • Thigh

Who is a Good Candidate for Laser Vein Therapy?

You may be a good candidate for laser vein therapy if:

  • You avoid shorts or swimwear because of the appearance of your legs.
  • You cover the veins on your face to camouflage them.
  • You do not have any history of blood clots

How Does Laser Vein Therapy Work?​

Laser vein therapy, or endovenous laser treatment (EVLT), works by using a laser fiber to generate heat that seals off and collapses damaged veins. This minimally invasive procedure is commonly used to treat varicose veins, spider veins, and other types of enlarged veins.

During the procedure, a small incision is made near the affected vein, and a thin laser fiber is inserted through it. The laser is activated and slowly pulled back through the vein, heating it until it seals shut. As the treated vein is no longer able to carry blood, it breaks down over time, and the body eventually absorbs it.

Laser vein therapy is typically performed under local anesthesia and can be completed in as little as 30 minutes. It offers several advantages over traditional vein stripping surgery, including minimal scarring, a shorter recovery time, and a lower risk of complications.

DermaBlue Laser Vein Therapy Treatment Process​

Once you’ve completed a free consultation and we’ve assessed your goals, we can get started with the laser vein therapy treatment.

The process begins with the patient being given protective eyewear and then the skin around the targeted area is cleaned and numbed. A handheld laser device is then used to target the veins from the outside of the skin. The laser emits pulses that pass through the skin and get absorbed by the veins.

The treatment typically lasts 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the size and number of veins being treated. After the procedure, the treated area may be slightly red and swollen. Patients may also experience some mild discomfort, but this can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relief medication.

Most patients are able to resume normal activities immediately after the treatment. However, it is recommended to avoid activities that may cause the treated area to become irritated or overheated for a few days after the procedure.

Laser Vein Therapy Results​

Patients can expect to see a noticeable reduction in the appearance of their veins, with a significant improvement in the overall look and feel of their legs. This treatment also helps to alleviate the symptoms associated with varicose veins, such as pain, swelling, and discomfort. Laser vein therapy is a safe and effective alternative to traditional vein stripping, and patients can typically resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure.

With a high success rate and minimal risks, laser vein therapy is an excellent option for patients looking to improve the health and appearance of their legs.
