You can count on the professional skills of Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery Medical Spa laser specialists. We have assisted many clients and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Is the laser vein treatment right for me?

There are many reasons why you would want to consider laser treatments to treat your veins.

Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery’s Medical Spa certified professionals will explain to you why laser treatments at their facility are the right choice for you. They will ensure that they are aware of your reasons and expected results and will promptly address any concerns you may have. We will also present a step-by-step description of the procedure and will openly discuss cost issues and financial options. Your Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery Medical Spa physician will determine if your veins are appropriate for treatment with a laser.

How is a laser treatment performed at Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery Medical Spa?

Laser vein treatment is applied by delivering a beam of light energy in a series of brief pulses. The light energy from the laser heats the inside layer of the small vein and then zaps it. Finally, the heat causes the blood to clot within the vein and over a four- to six-week period to be reabsorbed by the body.

Depending on the size and number of spider veins, treatments usually last between 15 and 20 minutes.

Would definitely recommend it, they went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable, and even when I had an emergency regarding finances due to my bank they made it a point to stay open later than they had to until I had it straightened out.

What can I expect after the laser vein treatment?

After laser vein treatment, the appearance of existing veins will be diminished or completely eliminated. However, the development of new veins cannot be prevented. If your body has an underlying vascular problem, you may be prescribed additional treatments. Treatments are effective for most individuals, including those with darker or tanned skin.

Although most patients don’t find laser treatment uncomfortable, the patient may still feel a sense of heat. This can be eased by cooling the area. There are nominal side effects. The skin above the veins may look red and slightly irritated following the procedure, and, depending on the sensitivity of the patient’s skin, there may be some bruising. These side effects usually disappear in a day or two.

How much do laser treatments cost?

The cost of laser vein therapy at Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery Medical Spa depends on the severity of your vein problem and will be discussed during your consultation. Please inquire about our special packages designed to make the cost of this procedure very affordable.
