How Is the Laser Vein Therapy Performed?
The laser vein therapy procedure uses a laser to send bursts of light through your skin and into your vein, causing the vein to fade. Laser vein therapy is performed by either board-certified plastic and hand surgeon, Dr. Frank Troha, Dr. Thaddeus P. O’Neill, or physician assistant, Nichole R. Gill. We perform this therapy in the comfort of our office. Laser vein therapy is quick and easy to perform. We use a device called the Erbium laser; this laser is commonly used for anti-aging treatments such as spider veins, sun or brown spots, wrinkles, and even tattoo removal. The Erbium laser penetrates the skin so the tissue can absorb the energy, without removing the top layer of skin. This “non-ablative” laser works without cutting or damaging the skin because it specifically targets the cells you are treating with less collateral damage than other lasers. We encourage you to speak with us about your concerns and allow us to answer any questions you may have.
How Do I Know If Laser Vein Therapy Is Right for Me?
Laser vein therapy is effective for both men and women who are suffering from facial spider veins. Facial veins could appear on your nose, cheeks or around your eyes and though they are not often painful, they can be aesthetically displeasing. If you are considering treatment for your facial veins, call the doctors at Miami Valley Plastic Surgeons and schedule a consultation to discuss if this treatment is right for you.
Will I Need Anesthesia for Laser Vein Therapy?
No anesthesia is necessary for laser vein therapy. However, a topical numbing treatment can be applied to help minimize any discomfort.
How Does Laser Vein Therapy Work?
The Erbium laser uses fractional resurfacing technology, where portions of the skin receive the laser light, these bursts of light enter through your skin and into your vein, causing the veins to fade. Depending on the size of the area that needs to be treated, you may need three to five treatments spaced apart by three to five weeks. Each of these treatments delivers a series of microscopic laser bursts which fade the facial spider veins while preserving the areas of unaffected, healthy skin. During your consultation, Dr. Troha, Dr. O’Neill, or Nichole Gill PA-C, will discuss your unique treatment schedule and inform you of what to expect after the procedure is completed.
How Long Is the Recovery Time for A Laser Vein Therapy?
Laser vein therapy is non-ablative and requires minimal downtime. The healing process varies by patient and depends on the size of the area that will need treatment. Generally, recovery time is three to five days, but Dr. Troha, Dr. O’Neill, or Nichole Gill PA-C will discuss your unique situation with you during your consultation.
How Much Does Laser Vein Therapy Cost?
Every person’s skin and skin concerns are different; therefore, we will not be able to discuss the exact cost with you until after your consultation. Cash, personal checks, and credit cards are always accepted for any of the procedures we offer, and many of our patients will also qualify for low-interest financing.
