Love Your Clear, Gorgeous Skin

If you have found yourself bothered by the presence of small blood vessels that appear on your cheeks or around your nose, you’re absolutely not alone. These veins that sometimes become visible near the surface of the skin are called superficial veins: They carry very little blood and are mostly used to facilitate heat transfer away from the body when the body becomes overheated because of exertion or external conditions. 

The majority of people have far more superficial veins than they actually need. Not all superficial veins are visible, and many—such as the superficial veins on the surface of the hands—are common to everyone. If, however, your superficial veins are overly visible or visible in places that are aesthetically unpleasing, a condition known as telangiectasias can occur. This is where laser vein removal steps in to help.

Laser vein removal is a quick, effective, in-office procedure that can non-surgically address the presence of visible superficial veins—sometimes also referred to as spider veins—with minimal discomfort. You’ll be able to say goodbye to frustrating visible veins and enjoy the boosted self-confidence that comes along with smooth, clear skin. To learn more, reach out to our Bethesda, Maryland location and set up your consultation today.

Understanding Spider Veins

Telangiectasias is an unpleasant condition that causes the appearance of what are commonly referred to as “spider veins.: While it is only physically harmful in rare cases, it can certainly damage patients’ confidence and self-esteem. Spider veins can be successfully treated with laser technology, which we’re proud to offer, here at Chevy Chase Facial Plastic Surgery.

When you visit our practice for your initial consultation, you’ll start with an informative consultation between you and your practitioner. You’ll discuss your cosmetic goals and work together to explore the various treatment options that we have available to you. We offer our patients a number of both surgical and non-surgical solutions to many of life’s most common cosmetic concerns, and we’ll be excited to collaborate with you on the development of your fully customized treatment plan.

Your Treatment Experience

Dr. Jennifer Parker Porter will begin your laser vein removal procedure by first working to identify and map the visible veins you wish to have treated. Sophisticated computer technology allows the doctor to accurately laser target only the vein you wish to eliminate, leaving healthy blood vessels and nearby tissues completely untouched. During the procedure, laser energy will be delivered directly into the veins in question, where it will go to work creating your final results. 

The laser energy, when interacting with visible veins, causes the blood within the vein to coagulate. This destroys the vessel entirely, leaving your body to flush out the unneeded tissues so you can enjoy a clear, healthy look in the treatment area. You’ll enjoy a quick and easy treatment session with minimal discomfort and little to no downtime. The entire session takes between 20 and 40 minutes to complete.

Your Final Results

Every patient is unique, and the timeframe for your final results will vary according to the specifics of your treatment plan. Factors like the condition of your skin and the severity of the visible veins we are treating will influence the time it takes for your final results to appear. Many patients can see ideal results after just a single treatment, while others may require follow-up appointments before they’re able to enjoy the look they would prefer. During your consultation, we’ll help you create an ideal treatment plan, and will work with you to set up an appointment schedule that works for you.
