About Laser Vein Removal

Neem Medical Spa in the greater Boston, MA area offers treatments for varicose and spider veins using the Lumenis M22™ YAG and Cutera excel® HR for laser vein removal. When you have varicose veins, they are actually swollen blood vessels that appear red, dark purple, or blue just below the surface of the skin. Varicose veins are commonly found on the back of the calves and the inside of the legs. However, they can form anywhere on the legs (from the groin to the ankle).

Spider veins are similar to varicose veins, but they are smaller and closer to the surface of the skin. They look like tree branches or spider webs anywhere on the legs and can cover either a small or a large area of skin. Spider veins don’t bulge like varicose veins but are still absolutely noticeable. Caused by many factors like genetics and age, spider veins may be blue, red, and purple, which makes them hard to mask. As these unattractive veins typically multiply over the years and become more visible, it is advisable to get treatment when you first notice them. To decrease the visibility of blood vessels on the body and face, Neem Medical Spa performs nonsurgical laser vein removal treatments in Somerville, Lynnfield, and Winchester, MA. At your initial consultation, board-certified internal medicine physician Dr. Rosy Sandhu can suggest a customized plan to meet your needs and goals for your laser vein reduction treatment.

Ideal Candidates

Nonsurgical laser vein reduction sessions at Neem Medical Spa may minimize the look of small or mid-sized veins on the body and face. Frequently called spider veins, these visible blood vessels are rarely a medical issue; however, they are deemed a cosmetic problem. Affected men and women tend to avoid certain clothes (such as swimsuits and shorts) for varicose veins or use a lot of concealer to attempt to cover up their spider veins. Laser vein treatments are a good option for people who have generally good health, do not have blood clots, and are not pregnant.

Treatment Technique

Our innovative laser vein removal sessions are completed in any of our three offices in 20 – 40 minutes, based on the number of areas being addressed. For your laser vein removal, you will be asked to relax in a reclined position in one of our treatment rooms as the skin is cleaned. At your request, a local numbing cream may be used before the procedure to reduce any discomfort. The laser handpiece is passed across the skin so the wavelengths can reach the spider veins with multiple pulses that will not harm the skin or rest of your body. The abnormal blood vessel soaks in the energy of the laser, which closes the walls of the veins. 

What to Expect

Right after your laser vein reduction session, you may notice bruising, redness, and swelling; however, these side effects usually dissipate in 1 – 2 weeks. For optimal healing, compression or support garments may be worn to encourage the circulation of your blood. It is necessary to avoid extended exposure to UV rays and you are encouraged to use sunscreen on the treated skin. You may notice improvements right away but outcomes will be different for every person. During your initial consultation, potential results will be reviewed as well as suggestions on the number of treatments necessary to get your optimal results. More spider veins will likely form in time, so follow-up procedures may be performed as needed.
