Laser Vein Treatment- Gentle YAG laser- San Diego, CA*

31 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

Laser vein treatments can be an effective way to address spider veins that occur typically in the legs and thighs. Spider veins form when their blood vessels become overstretched. Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Amir Moradi at Moradi MD in San Diego, CA, utilizes the Gentle YAG laser to target and deliver intense heat waves into the effected veins. This causes the blood vessels to collapse and absorb back into the body. Deep penetration with minimal scattering of laser energy makes Gentle YAG laser therapy ideal for all skin types, particularly tanned and dark skin. Thanks to the pulse durations and multiple spot sizes, the Gentle YAG leg and facial vein treatment capabilities rival pulse dye technology. Thus, it is the only laser of its kind patented and cleared by the FDA to treat veins. 

Ideal Candidates

Most patients with spider veins are eligible candidates for the Gentle YAG laser treatment. Ideal candidates should meet the following criteria:

  • Are not pregnant
  • Are not currently on Accutane (isotretinoin) therapy
  • Do not have a history of light-triggered seizures
  • Do not have a history of photosensitivity (allergy or strong sensitivity to light)
  • Do not have implanted medical devices such as pacemakers, cardioverters, etc.

During the Procedure

Before the treatment begins, the Asethetician will cover the patient’s eyes with protective eyewear. Once the patient is ready, the Asethetician will pass the laser handpiece over the areas of the body that have visible blood vessels. The Gentle YAG laser system applies multiple wavelengths of light that can are absorbed by the blood vessel, which destroy the spider vein for a smoother appearance to the skin.

What to Expect

Discomfort during the GentleYAG laser treatment can be lessened during the procedure by applying ice packs or a topical anesthetic before the procedure begins. After the treatment is complete, patients are sent home with specific instructions for post-treatment care. Compression stockings or support hosiery are recommended for patients up to a week after the treatment. Strenuous exercise will need to be avoided for the first week, though walking is encouraged. In order to achieve optimal results, 3 – 6  treatment sessions, at 6 – 8 week intervals may be required. Results can be appreciated 6 – 8  weeks after treatment.
