Laser Vein Treatment
Veins on the face and body are a common nuisance amongst both men and women. Overly visible veins often make people self-conscious and can age the face and body well beyond their years.

Laser Vein Removal Treatment FAQ
What types of veins does the treatment address?
Reducing the appearance of vascular lesions (spider veins) is comfortably performed with the Sciton laser in our Chandler office, near Phoenix, AZ. Due to the innovative technology of the Sciton laser this state of the art procedure eliminates veins and telangiectasia on the face, legs and virtually anywhere on the body without the need for surgery.
What is the laser vein removal treatment like?
Performed under local anesthesia, laser vein treatment transmits bursts of laser energy that penetrate deep into the vein, causing the vessel walls to collapse and dissolve. Patients compare the feeling of Sciton ClearScan laser to that of a rubber band snapping against the skin. Depending on your individual goals, one or more vein removal treatments may be required.
What is recovery like after vein removal?
Our fast, effective and safe treatment for benign vascular lesions allows patients to return to regularly scheduled activities immediately upon leaving our office. Patients commonly experience discoloration following the procedure, though this typically subsides within 2 days. We recommend wearing SPF 30 and limiting sun exposure as your skin heals.
When will I notice results?
Results vary for everyone. Since laser vein treatment makes the target blood vessels collapse, the body must reabsorb the broken vessels. This can be compared to a bruise healing. Most patients enjoy decreased redness and faded veins within a few weeks of treatment.
