Spider veins and vascular lesions (like red birthmarks) can be an embarrassing skin condition for many. Genetics can be a factor for both spider veins and vascular lesions, and some lifestyle factors may contribute as well. GentleMax laser treatments can effectively fade the redness associated with these common complexion concerns.
Are You a Candidate?
The best candidates for laser vein and vascular lesion treatments are women or men with visible bluish-red veins on the face or legs or visible reddish vascular lesions. During your consultation, we will be able to advise you on if you are an acceptable candidate and the most appropriate treatment for your condition.
About Laser Vein & Vascular Lesion Treatment
At Eastern Shore Cosmetic Surgery, we use the GentleMax laser to remove unwanted spider veins and vascular lesions. Even after one treatment you should see improvement, but it usually takes a series of treatments to achieve the best results if you require a more significant level of correction. The number of treatments depends on the extent of your concerns.
Educated at the University of Alabama and in practice for over 15 years, Dr. Koehler is a board-certified cosmetic surgeon who is devoted to providing exceptional results.
Spider Vein & Vascular Lesion Treatment Costs
At our practice, the cost of laser vein and vascular lesion treatment ranges from $100 to $200 per treatment. Your total cost will vary depending on the area being treated and the number of treatments required to achieve results. Dr. Koehler and his staff are happy to answer any questions you may have about pricing and help you fully understand the costs associated with laser skin treatments.
What to Expect
The treatments can take up to an hour depending on the size of the area being treated. Patients may experience a slight stinging or discomfort that is quickly relieved by the cryogenic spray used by the GentleMax to cool the skin.
You can experience some redness of the skin after treatment, which usually subsides after a few hours. You can resume your regular activities immediately after your treatment.
Risks and Complications
Generally there are few risks associated with laser treatments for spider veins or vascular lesions. Spider veins treated with the laser may remain dark in color for several weeks until the vessel shrinks completely.
Your New Look
You should see results after just one treatment, but in most cases patients will require several treatments for maximum improvement. New spider veins may appear over time and additional treatments may be needed.
