ABOUT Laser Vein Removal
Spider veins are small blood vessels that are easily seen through the skin on the face and body, and these veins affect an estimated 30 – 60% of adults. These vessels can be red, purple, or blue, and if left untreated, they will increase in number as they start a branching or web like pattern on the skin. Led by dermatologist Dr. Matthew Barrows, Dermatology and Skin Cancer Surgery Center helps patients improve or erase the appearance of spider veins on the face and body using the 1064: YAG laser on the Cynosure MPX Elite laser, Icon laser or the Spectrum laser. Our amazing medical professionals can discuss individualized treatment plans during each patient's initial consultation.
Patients who are good candidates for laser vein removal have visible veins on their body, including the thighs and lower legs, that cause them to avoid wearing shorts and swimsuits out of embarrassment. Some patients also develop spider veins on their face, which can be minimized or erased by laser vein therapy. Patients should be in good general health before the procedure and should tell their doctor if they have a history of blood clots or may be pregnant.
"Tammi Dobbs is very attentive and sweet. She really listens to what you have to say always gives options in treatment rather than pushing one. She is by far the best dermatologist I've gone to."- L.B. / Google / Sep 01, 2015
"I have been to several dermatolgists in the past. I have never been examined as thoroughly as I was by Ella! To say I was impressed would be an understatement. I have had psoriasis most of my adult life. She diagnosed the stiffness in my joints as psoriatic arthritis. All of the other dermatologist I have seen have missed that completely. She is a Very caring dermatologist and has a great staff. I have finally found my dermatologist."- P.C. / Yelp / Sep 05, 2018

What to Expect
Laser vein treatment may cause some temporary redness, bruising, and blistering to the treated skin, but this should disappear in 2 weeks – 2 months. Patients are advised to rest and avoid strenuous activity after their treatment, and patients should cover the treated areas or use other protection from any sun exposure. For best results, patients may need multiple treatments over the course of several months. For a faster recovery, patients may consider wearing support stockings to help promote better blood circulation.
