With the Cynosure Icon spider vein treatment at Dedham Medical Aesthetics, you don’t have to worry about covering up leg veins or broken blood vessels on your face. While spider veins are typically painless, they can be unsightly.
We have helped many men and women remove spider veins with the Icon laser. Icon provides a dramatic reduction to unsightly veins in just a few treatment sessions. This minimally invasive procedure is a quick and easy way to treat spider veins on the face and body. It has zero downtime, so you can get back to life immediately after treatment.
Spider veins develop when the valves in the veins fail to work properly. Broken blood vessels can also lead to spider veins, particularly on the face and legs.
The valves help direct blood toward the heart, closing after blood passes through to prevent the backward flow of blood. In people that suffer from spider veins, the valves are faulty. Blood may leak backward and pool inside the veins. This can be visible at the skin surface, resulting in the appearance of spider veins.
Spider vein causes include excess sun exposure, genetics, sitting or standing for too long, aging, and hormone changes. For example, increased estrogen can weaken blood valves, such as during pregnancy or while taking hormonal birth control. Both men and women can develop spider veins. Often, the condition occurs later in life.
Spider vein treatment is done using laser technology, which has the ability to target veins just below the skin’s surface without harming the skin surrounding them. The heat energy delivered by the laser damages the targeted vein, causing scar tissue to form. As a result, the vein loses blood flow and disappears shortly thereafter.
Cynosure Icon for spider veins is highly effective. Using the most advanced technology, Icon combines a fractional laser and intense pulsed light, also called IPL. By using two laser technologies at the same time, it effectively targets pigmentation and clears vascular defects that are causing those unwanted spider veins on your face and legs.
Cynosure Icon is an advanced laser vein treatment that targets and constricts the damaged blood vessels that are causing spider veins to appear. The laser is designed to target blood vessels exclusively. Thus, it causes little to no damage to the skin’s outer layer.
Precisely targeting the fault blood vessels gives Cynosure Icon patient visible improvement in just a few quick treatment sessions. Cynosure Icon is an FDA approved non-ablative laser that is proven safe and medically effective. Treating spider veins with Cynosure Icon is considered “off label” use.
Icon laser therapy gives you the freedom to stop hiding broken blood vessels and spider veins. As spider veins and broken blood vessels often occur in older patients, removing them helps our clients look as young as they feel inside.
As a minimally invasive laser vascular treatment that takes less in 30 minutes, it won’t disrupt your daily life as there is no need for surgery. Our Dedham Spider Vein Treatment clients are amazed to see the Icon laser results in just 1-4 treatment sessions. If you are interested in Spider Vein Treatment Dedham Medical Aesthetics is happy to help you!
Additional benefits of laser treatment include:
The laser technology used for spider vein treatment is safe to use on any area of the body. Laser treatment is effective in treating veins in the legs, although larger veins may require multiple treatments.
Before your spider vein treatment, a cooling agent or anesthetic may be applied to minimize discomfort. Then, the specialized CynoSure® laser is used to precisely target the desired veins. This only takes a few minutes before the treatment is complete.
Spider vein treatment requires no downtime. Patients are in and out of their appointment quickly and are able to resume normal activities upon leaving. After treatment, your skin may be red or sensitive, similar to a sunburn. This will subdue in the days following treatment.
Most patients can effectively treat spider veins on the face or body in as little as 1-4 Icon laser procedures. A series of treatments may be needed to fully remove the spider veins. In order to determine the appropriate number of Icon laser treatments that are right for you, please contact Dedham Medical Aesthetics for a consultation.
Our laser specialist is knowledgeable about various laser skin treatments. She will help you determine the type of laser and the number of treatments needed.
The number of treatments required for desired results will largely depend on the severity of the spider veins being treated. Some patients may experience satisfactory results after one treatment, while others may need multiple treatments to achieve the results they desire. These will be scheduled several weeks apart and can be discussed further during your consultation. Most patients will see definitive results six to nine months after treatment.
For most patients, spider vein treatment with Cynosure Icon causes minimal discomfort. The feeling is best described as short bursts of tingling or snapping, similar to the feeling of a rubber band hitting the skin. The icon briefly pulses over the area as this happens.
At Dedham Medical Aesthetics, we can treat spider veins on legs and face in as little as 5-30 minutes, depending on the number of spider veins and the size of the area that is treated. Any discomfort subsides quickly after treatment, so patients can return to normal activities immediately. The skin may feel red or tingle for up to several hours after treatment.
Many patients notice improvement shortly after the first treatment. You may see visible effects immediately that will continue to improve for up to one week after the procedure.
However, please keep in mind that multiple Icon laser sessions may be needed for visible improvement. Our laser technician will advise you of the number of sessions needed based on her training and years of clinical experience.
The cost of spider vein treatment will vary depending on the number of veins being treated as well as their size. To ensure our patients can achieve the results they’re looking for, we offer flexible financing options including CareCredit®. Our office also accepts major credit cards, cash, and cashier’s checks.
