What is Laser Vein Therapy?
TruDerm is pleased to offer laser vein therapy treatments to men and women with spider veins on various areas of their face. Our treatment team has extensive experience in performing this procedure and understands that each patient case is unique. Prior to any treatment, your provider will conduct a thorough consult to learn more about your skin and your cosmetic goals. At TruDerm we utilize the Vbeam laser by Syneron Candela and PicoWay laser technology for laser vein therapy treatments. Both the PicoWay and Vbeam laser technology use a focused wavelength that specifically targets red blood cells without damaging the surface of the skin. If you are interested in significantly diminishing the appearance of your spider veins, call our Allen and Plano, TX offices today to learn more.
Patients who are good candidates for laser vein therapy have visible spider veins on their face. Typically, facial veins are designated to the mid-section of the face including the cheeks and nose. Patients should be in overall good health before the procedure and should tell their provider if they have a history of blood clots or may be pregnant.
Laser vein therapy is an effective treatment and provides outstanding outcomes for patients who have:
- Facial veins
- Spider veins in the legs or upper thigh area
- Leg veins
- Varicose veins
- Vascular lesions
The type of vein you wish to be treated and the condition of them will help determine which modality our skilled practitioners will use. Some patients made need several treatments depending on the number of veins, size, location, and desired outcome.
"Dr.Adler is an exceptional dermatologist. I have visited several doctors for my moderate adult acne and kept getting pushed to use Accutane, which I was uncomfortable with; it was refreshing when Dr.Adler offered safer and more long term solutions that fit my needs. I am grateful that he didn’t try to hard sell anything and even recommended that I stay away from excessive products or treatments, but rather simplify my routine with a “less is more” approach. He always has a smile and great attitude during our visits. I would recommend him just based upon his bedside manner and the TruDerm environment alone, but his knowledge and expertise far exceeds the other Plano area dermatologists I have seen, so it is easy to tell everyone I know about him."- L.F. / Google / May 31, 2019
"I absolutely love Jenna! I decided to try a new derm for a second opinion and ending up having such a great experience with Jenna I switched over to TruDerm. She goes above and beyond to find thorough solutions for all of my concerns and/or problems. She genuinely cares and never rushes the appointments or throws a script at you."- K.M. / Google / Feb 26, 2019
"Wonderful place!! Everyone was very friendly and helpful!! Loved all the treatment options!!"- M.D. / Facebook / Mar 08, 2019
"It’s beautiful there! I went at the end of the year for a skin cancer check. I’ll be going back soon to try out the facials. Everyone is so nice from the front desk to the PA that saw me."- K.A. / Facebook / Mar 04, 2019
"Jenna is amazing! This is by far the best experience I've had at a dermatologist. She answered all of my questions and did not make me feel rushed. Even though I gave her plenty of opportunities, she did not push products on me, but gave cost-effective suggestions that fit my needs and my budget. Cannot recommend TruDerm and Jenna more!"- M.A. / Google / Mar 01, 2019
About the Procedure
Before the treatment begins, one of our skin care technicians will cover the patient’s eyes with protective eyewear. Once the patient is ready, the provider will pass the laser handpiece over the areas of the face that have visible blood vessels. The Vbeam system applies multiple wavelengths of light that are absorbed by the blood vessel, which destroy the spider vein for a smoother appearance to the skin, while PicoWay utilizes a photoacoustic effect.
What to Expect
Laser vein treatment may cause some temporary redness, bruising, and blistering to the treated skin but this should disappear in 2 – 8 weeks. Patients are advised to rest and avoid strenuous activity after their treatment, and patients should cover the treated areas as often as possible to protect it from any sun exposure. For best results, we recommend multiple treatments over the course of several months.
