Your Vein Treatment

Dr. Bonakdar uses the Lumenis® One™ Nd:YAG laser or Pellevé® radiofrequency device to treat broken capillaries and superficial vessels on the face and body. These devices work by converting energy to heat, which coagulates and seals the vessels being treated. The skin then gradually absorbs and removes the redundant vessels.

For leg veins, sclerotherapy may be a better option. Sclerotherapy involves injecting a concentrated solution directly into the target vein, causing it to seal shut. The blood flow is then routed away from the vein and the discoloration fades. In many cases, the spider vein disappears completely, but a few treatments may be necessary to achieve the results you're looking for.

Knowing What to Expect

During laser vein removal, no anesthesia is required prior to treatment. Instead, topical icing is used during the procedure to cool the vessel prior to each treatment pulse. Some of the vessels seal and disappear immediately, while others become bruised and take several weeks to heal. Treatments are repeated 4 – 6 weeks apart until your desired reduction is achieved.

Sclerotherapy can also be performed without anesthesia and usually takes under an hour, depending on the size and number of veins treated. The veins are first marked and then a thin needle is used to administer the sclerosing solution into the appropriate location. Compression stockings may be recommended to help collapse the veins after treatment. Usually, 3 – 5 sessions produce noticeable and long-lasting results.

Dr. Bonakdar specializes in cosmetic laser rejuvenation and uses laser technology for a variety of purposes. For patients who want legs that are smooth as well as free of spider veins, she may suggest laser hair removal or VASER® Shape cellulite treatment. For firmer skin that looks youthful, Dr. Bonakdar recommends Fraxel®.
