Tired of veins popping up everywhere? Here’s the good news: you’re not the only one. Visible veins on skin are just another sign of aging, and one that can be easily dealt with if you know where to go.

Veins on skin appear as thin curvy lines, usually with a slightly bluish or purplish hue. These are called telangiectasias – a medically recognized condition. In most cases it doesn’t affect the body in any life-threatening way (it is NOT a deep blood clot). It creeps up over time and ends up causing an eyesore. Signs of telangiectasias include spider veins, broken vessels and leg and facial lesions. In most people the veins are most prominent in the thigh and around the knee areas, but can appear in other areas as well. It is also more common than you might imagine, affecting over 80% of women and a large percentage of men as well.

Laser Vein Removal

So why bother if telangiectasias aren’t that serious? You see, veins on the arms, legs and other areas of the body can severely limit fashion choices—and that’s never a good thing! People who are conscious of visible veins often choose not to wear anything that exposes those thin wavy lines. When the first priority in choosing what to wear is covering up ‘blemishes’ rather than flaunting your style, fashion choices can take hit. Newport Aesthetics’ Cynosure Icon Aesthetic laser treatment is a high-end laser that removes visible veins from skin so you can revive your inner fashionista!

With the our laser treatment, you will never feel the need to cover up anything again – well, within reason. Our treatments are administered at our state-of-the art facility in Newport Beach and performed by highly-trained clinicians.

Leg Vein Treatment

How does it work?

Laser light targets and constricts the blood vessels that cause spider veins in the leg, without harming surrounding tissue, so there’s no extensive recovery.

What types of leg veins can be treated?

Laser leg vein treatment is ideal for spider veins, reticular veins, and broken capillaries on the legs.

Am I a good candidate for this procedure?

Laser leg vein treatments can be performed safely on all skin types. Our clinicians will determine if you are a good candidate for laser leg vein treatments. Come in for a complimentary consultation.

How long does it take?

A laser leg vein treatment session can take less than 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated and the amount of leg veins needing treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

While you may see changes in the appearance of your leg veins immediately following treatment, several laser leg vein treatment sessions (usually 3) may be needed to reduce the appearance of the leg veins completely.

Does it hurt?

Most people easily tolerate laser leg vein removal treatments. We do offer a numbing topical cream for your comfort too. Ice works just as well!

How quickly will I recover?

Most people resume regular daily activities immediately following treatment. You should not take hot baths, hot showers, or engage in vigorous exercise for two (2) weeks following your laser leg vein treatment.

Facial Vessel Treatment

What types of vessel problems can be treated?

Laser or IPL vessel treatment is a good choice for treating spider veins and broken vessels on your face, neck, and some other areas of your body.

Laser or IPL vessel treatments can be performed on most skin types. Contact us at Newport Aesthetics to find out if you are a good candidate for this treatment.

What kinds of results can I expect?

Most people can expect to see a decrease in the appearance of spider veins and other facial vessel imperfections along with a more even skin tone (this is a bonus).

How long does it take?

The procedure can be performed in as little as 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

Does it hurt?

Most people feel minimal discomfort during laser or IPL treatments.

Rarely is numbing cream used with IPL but you always have that option – at no charge!

We always recommend a numbing cream with the laser treatment (ICON 1064).

How many treatments will I need?

Most people will see some improvement immediately. To achieve the best results, three or more treatments may be needed depending on the severity of the spider veins and vessel areas.

How quickly will I recover?

Most people resume regular activities immediately following the treatment session.

Before Treatment

Remove all make-up & moisturizers from the treatment site.

Avoid flying for 48 hours after the treatment.

You should not be pregnant or breastfeeding to receive treatment.

When treating facial telangectasias near the mouth, rolled-up gauze can be placed between the lips and teeth to protect theteeth from discomfort.

We DO NOT treat over areas with tattoos. This can cause your tattoos to bleed or fade.

Apply an ice pack prior to treatment to increase comfort and provide increased epidermal protection. We will provide this.

Avoid aspirin or other blood thinning drugs (vitamin E, Gingko Biloba), Ibuprofen, or arthritis medication for two days before and after treatment.

Avoid alcohol and do not smoke for two days before and after treatment.

To avoid discomfort do not shave legs the day of your appointment.

Do not apply lotions to legs before your appointment.

Eat a light meal/snack one hour before treatment.

Bring loose fitting shorts/pants to wear after treatment.

If you develop a fever or other illness before your appointment you must reschedule.

After Treatment

Ice packs may be applied after treatment to increase your comfort and provide increased epidermal protection.

The veins may have an urticarial reaction (like a cat-scratch – they can be itchy) after treatment. This is common and will diminish more quickly with the application of a mild-potency topical corticosteroid (think hydrocortisone cream).

Portions of larger vessels will sometimes darken and become stiff and painful for an extended period after a treatment. The dark coagulum can be removed at 1 to 2 weeks following the treatment by nicking the vessel with a needle or blade and applying pressure to force out the coagulum.

For larger leg veins, we recommend using of compression stockings (30-40 mm Hg pressure) for up to five days after treatment. This increases your comfort level and helps reduce any bruising.

If crusting occurs, an antibiotic ointment or lubricating cream may be used.

Post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation is a common response (especially with darker skin types) to vascular laser treatments and tends to resolve over time.

Immediately upon leaving the office go for a brisk 15-minute walk.

You may resume your normal daily activities immediately, but avoid strenuous aerobic exercise until further advised.

You are encouraged to wear your compression stockings as much as you can following vein treatment. The more you wear your stockings, the better your results. You may remove your stockings to wash them, but while they are being washed, keep your legs elevated as much as possible.

Take Extra Strength Tylenol for pain. AVOID ASPIRIN, ADVIL, OR IBUPROFEN. These tend to thin blood and can lead to excessive bruising.

Call if you experience any severe reactions such as profound pain, intense itching, redness or fever.

Avoid hot conditions such as saunas, Jacuzzis, or hot showers for 7-10 days after treatment.

Follow Up

The recommended time interval between treatments is 4-6 weeks, depending on the rate of clearance following each treatment. Larger reticular vessels can take three months to resolve and should not be re-treated before then.

Consistent repeated treatments will produce best resolution of the unwanted leg veins.
