Leg and Facial Veins Removal
At the Cosmetic Skin and Laser Center our health care professionals specialize in the removal of leg and facial veins. Red, blue, or purple leg and facial veins can be a result of sun exposure, use of oral contraception, hormone therapy, age, genetics, or myriad of physiological and environmental factors. Utilizing our advanced Cynosure Elite Laser, our providers and staff are skilled at removing these stubborn veins and have successfully treated many patients with excellent results. Our laser emits a prescribed dose of light energy to the vein. The laser “selectively” targets the problem veins while sparing surrounding areas. After treatment, within a few days, the unwanted vein will “naturally” disappear.

What causes unwanted veins?
Red, blue, or purple leg and facial veins can be a result of sun exposure, use or oral contraception, hormone therapy, age or genetics.
How does laser treatment work?
A cosmetic laser emits a prescribed dose of energy to the vein. The laser “selectively” targets the problem veins while sparing surrounding areas. After treatment, the vessel will naturally disappear.
How many treatments are required?
Typically only one or two treatments are required and results can be seen in 3-4 weeks. Treatment time usually varies between 10 and 20 minutes, depending on the size of the area treated.
