Varicose Veins Treatment

At Coastal Aesthetics, we provide clients with the most cutting-edge laser treatments to address various skin concerns, including varicose veins. Varicose veins (their thinner, smaller cousins are known as spider veins) are a cosmetic concern that mainly affects women and more than 50% of the entire adult population. If you want to diminish the look of pronounced veins, Coastal Aesthetics offers the ClearVein treatment, which yields incredible results.

The ClearVein treatment is used with Harmony XL Pro laser treatment by Alma Lasers. ClearVein is a non-invasive solution that closes varicose veins and reduces their appearance. The treatments are safe and effective, with reliable, long-term results.

What Are Varicose Veins?

Spider veins and varicose veins (telangiectasia) occur when small blood vessels near the skin’s surface enlarge due to weakened valves. In normal functioning veins, the valves inside the veins open to let blood flow toward the heart and close to prevent it from flowing backward. 

In the case of weakened blood vessels, blood pools within the vein, and the result is dark, visible veins that may be smooth or raised. Since the veins beneath the skin’s surface are so small, when the blood pools, it looks like a spider web. This is why people call them spider veins. 

Spider veins can occur anywhere on the body but usually appear on the legs and face. Varicose veins (thicker and more ropey than spider veins) tend to arise on the legs and are more frequent with age, often due to age-related changes in the vein walls. Other factors can contribute to varicose veins, like genetics, hormonal changes, pregnancy, obesity, sitting or standing for prolonged periods, or a sedentary lifestyle.

How Does ClearVein Work?

ClearVein works to ease the appearance of varicose veins with pulses of light and energy that destroy the vein. The long-pulse waves are targeted under the skin’s surface so precisely that the outermost layer of skin remains intact. Once the varicose vein absorbs the laser energy, it immediately collapses. The blanching or lightening of the treated vessel is immediately visible.

Over time, the body naturally removes the dead waste from the treated veins. When that process is finished, the spider veins are gone. It may take a few weeks to a few months to see the final results. Varicose veins treatment times vary depending on the size of the veins being treated and their location. Patients may require a course of treatments to see optimal results. During your varicose vein treatment consultation, Coastal Aesthetics will help you customize a treatment plan to achieve your cosmetic goals.

Varicose Vein Treatment FAQs

What kind of results will I see?

Expect to see clearer skin and less visible veins after the first treatment. Some patients may require additional treatments to fully eradicate more prominent veins.

What parts of the body can ClearVein treat varicose veins?

ClearVein laser treatment can be used to ease vascular lesions, including spider and varicose veins anywhere on the body. It is safe, effective, and gentle enough to be used on the face.

What is the treatment like?

There are several treatment options for reducing and removing spider and varicose veins, but none are as easy and pain-free as ClearVein. With this effective varicose veins treatment, there is no need for needles or numbing gels. Most patients can go right back to their regular activities after the procedure.

How do I maintain my results?

After completing your customized ClearVein treatment, the final results are permanent, and the targeted veins will not return.

What Other Laser Treatment Services Does Coastal Aesthetics Offer?

To help our patients achieve the fresh face they desire, we offer a variety of skincare services that address many skin issues.

For those patients who desire a more youthful look, skin resurfacing options like Opus Plasma and MicroNeedling, are two skin treatments that yield dramatic results. Another popular treatment to erase sunspots, aging, and acne breakouts is ClearLift. Designed by Alma Harmony, ClearLift is a treatment that uses the Harmony XL PRO laser machine to effectively diminish sun damage and signs of aging on the face, neck, and decollete. This innovative laser treatment uses pulses of light energy to treat and stop the inflammation and spread of bacteria that cause acne. The result is smooth and revitalized skin with a rebalanced complexion.
