Spider Vein Treatment in San Diego & Carlsbad

If you have spider veins on your face, legs, or ankles, you know how much older they can make you look. With the right treatment plan, you can lose the ugly spider veins, restore a youthful appearance to your skin, and confidently wear shorts, knowing your legs don’t look like your grandmother’s anymore. And if you are a grandmother, well, your legs won’t give that away.

At La Jolla Cosmetic Medical Spa in San Diego, laser vein treatments are performed in La Jolla and Carlsbad by our talented Laser and Skincare Specialists—and they put together a handy set of Q&A about the treatment to help our patients from Encinitas, Oceanside, San Marcos, and surrounding areas understand the process.

How Does Laser Vein Removal Work?

We use a laser to deliver pulses of light energy into your vein vessels, which causes the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually breaking up the vessel and allowing it to be reabsorbed back into your body. This allows blood flow to be redirected to deeper veins below the skin’s surface. Although no compression stockings are needed after laser treatment, there is a slight period of healing time where you will need to protect your veins from sun, heat, and high-impact exercise.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

For laser vein removal, we recommend a series of 3-6 treatments for most patients, although small vascular lesions such as cherry angioma’s usually disappear after just one treatment. Your results can be apparent as soon as 2 weeks up to 6 weeks after treatment.

Are There Any Side Effects With Laser Vein Removal?

Bruising is the most common side effect with vein treatments. Bruising can be minimized and prevented by discontinuing blood thinners such as aspirin or ibuprofen, fish oil, vitamin E, and St. John’s wort for a few days prior to treatment.

The natural supplement Arnica can also help prevent and relieve any bruising and is available at our office in topical and oral form. After laser vein removal treatments, a slightly raised, red reaction in the treated area is normal and typically resolves in 1-2 days.

Enjoy Pain-free Laser Treatments at LJC With Add-on Option PRO-NOX™

Every patient deserves a comfortable experience, so we now offer an add-on option to use PRO-NOX™ during laser treatments at LJC.

What Is PRO-NOX™?

PRO-NOX™ is a self-administered nitrous oxide (laughing gas) system that allows you to be in full control of your comfort. If at any point you feel you need something to take the edge off, simply breathe through the PRO-NOX™ mouthpiece for instant relief from pain and anxiety.

Unlike oral pain medication, PRO-NOX™ takes effect in seconds, but these effects wear off minutes after your treatment, leaving no trace of the chemical in your body. You can safely drive and return to your normal routine without worrying about side effects.

Ask us about adding PRO-NOX™ to your treatment at your consultation, or Contact us for more information!
