Spider Vein Removal in Fairfax, MD & Washington DC

Spider Vein Removal Fairfax VA

No more hiding your legs during the summer months!

The Candela GentleYag laser will make those spider veins disappear, making you more confident in your appearance.

Spider veins are stretched or dilated blood vessels in a branched pattern.  They can be visible on the thigh, leg, and sometimes even the face. They will usually increase in number and visibility with age. Thankfully, we have the Candela GentleYag.

How do I prepare for my spider vein removal procedure?

  • Avoid taking anything that will increase your chance of bleeding like: aspirin, some anti-inflammatory drugs, and even some herbal medications.
  • Stay hydrated before and after the procedure.

How does it work?

Our Candela GentleYag Laser machine is a highly safe and effective way of removing spider veins.  The machine emits a highly concentrated yet, non-invasive beam of light to remove your spider veins. The best part is that this treatment is virtually pain free. During the treatment, a light pulse is sent to the vein, targeting blood vessels, but leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. This laser beam penetrates the spider vein causing it to clot and break down the blood vessel. The body’s natural healing process will cause the blood to be reabsorbed, while the veins disappear. This non-invasive treatment takes between 15 to 45 minutes depending on how many veins in an area are being treated.

 

What can I expect?

Results can be noticed after one treatment. Up to three treatments could be required to reach optimum results. After treatment you can expect the area to be red, and there is no downtime, you can get back to the day without wasting any time!

Before and After results immediately after treatment!
