What is a Laser Vein Treatment?
Spider veins, vascular lesions, port wine stains, and leg veins usually appear on your face and body due to excess blood accumulation in your blood vessels. Laser vein treatment is a non-surgical means of shrinking the legs and facial veins to restore a smooth and even-textured complexion.
Laser vein treatment is the use of light energy from a laser technology to make the vascular lesions on your skin’s surface shrink and disappear. It uses high-power energy to attack the body’s hemoglobin content and reduce the legs and facial veins. Depending on the size of your vascular lesions, you might need multiple laser vein treatments to see optimal results.
Revitalize! CNY uses the latest cutting-edge technologies by InMode to treat vascular lesions without complications or downtime. Please schedule an appointment to discuss your laser vein treatment options today.
What Does the Laser Vein Treatment Treat?
Laser vein treatment is mostly used to treat vascular lesions, such as port wine stains, leg telangiectasias, rosacea, superficial leg veins, and hyperpigmentation in different body parts. It can’t treat varicose veins or the underlying vein disease responsible for the visible varicose veins.
Which Device Do You Use for the Laser Vein Treatment?
Revitalize! CNY is outfitted with cutting-edge technologies for all cosmetic procedures, including laser vein treatment. We use the groundbreaking Optimas by InMode, which consists of various state-of-the-art technologies for different cosmetic treatments, including Lumecca and Vasculaze for laser vein treatment.
Lumecca is a non-invasive intense pulsed light (IPL) device that emits immense light energy in the 500-600 nm range to ensure the optimal treatment of vascular and pigmented lesions.
Most IPL devices require at least 4 to 6 sessions to reduce or remove all the vascular lesions, but Lumecca produces the same results with 1 to 2 treatments. It includes sapphire cooling tips to ensure a comfortable experience.
Vasculaze is a non-surgical and non-invasive device that delivers high volumes of laser energy to your skin to treat vascular lesions, spider veins, etc. Vasculaze also features strong contact cooling tips to ensure a comfortable experience.

Who Are the Ideal Candidates for a Laser Vein Treatment?
Laser vein treatment is ideal for patients with superficial leg veins, pigmentation problems, rosacea, vascular lesions, or other vein-related concerns. The treatments are completely safe and suitable for all skin types.
However, laser vein treatment is a cosmetic procedure that only removes the visible vascularity on your skin’s surface — it doesn’t treat the underlying vein disease or varicose veins. Your leg veins will be examined to determine if you’re a viable candidate for laser vein treatment.
What Can I Expect from My Laser Vein Treatment?
During your consultation, Dr. Setter will examine your leg veins and skin to determine if you’re a viable candidate for laser vein treatment. If so, she’ll customize the laser vein treatment according to your specific cosmetic goals and needs. The Optimas laser vein technology will deliver steady pulses of light energy into the treatment areas around the vascular lesions. The light energy will heat the hemoglobin and shrink the vein walls, making them eventually fade away from your skin’s surface.
You might experience some soreness, discomfort, redness, and burning sensations after the treatment, but you can resume all your daily activities immediately. We may recommend additional sessions for optimal results. You’ll notice the results appear gradually as your spider veins disappear in the coming weeks. Contact us today!
