Vein Removal in Bowling Green, KY

Are you frustrated by unsightly spider and varicose veins? Feel like you can’t wear shorts or dresses because you’re self-conscious about the way your skin looks?

Spider veins appear as those small thin veins that feel smooth to the touch.  They’re usually small, thin, and dark blue or purple in appearance.  They can resemble the formation of a web – hence why they’re called spider veins! Spider veins can occur for a number of reasons, including:

  • Hormonal changes
  • Aging
  • Injury/Excessive exercise
  • Pregnancy

If you’re ready to put an end to spider veins and broken capillaries, it’s time to introduce yourself to the Alma Harmony XL Pro laser at MDCosmedX Laser & Lipo Center in Bowling Green, KY.  This gold standard laser treatment uses dual wavelengths to minimize the appearance of visible veins like spider veins and broken capillaries.  With consistent treatment, spider veins and broken capillaries will disappear within one year.

What Happens During the Treatment?

The laser treatment for vein removal works by using heat energy to damage the vein.  Over time, scar tissue forms around the vein, which causes it to close.  Eventually, the vein is absorbed by the body, which leaves behind flawless skin.  The overall process takes about a year before final results can be seen.

The Alma Harmony XL Pro laser uses a cooling handpiece to deliver laser heat energy to the surface of the skin.  The heat penetrates the dermis and damages the vein located underneath the skin.  The procedure itself takes less than an hour to perform, and requires little to no downtime.

You can expect to have a laser vein removal treatment scheduled every 6 to 12 weeks. For smaller spider veins, one laser treatment may be all that’s needed.  Results can be seen within one year.

Is There Any Downtime?

There is no downtime associated with laser vein removal.  You’ll be able to go back to your normal routine immediately after the treatment. Side effects can include redness and swelling at the treatment site.  It’s recommended that you wear sunscreen immediately after your laser procedure.
