About Laser Vein Removal
Typically located on the face and legs, spider veins are little blood vessels that branch and become visible underneath the skin. Caused by many factors, like age and genetics, spider veins may be blue, purple, and red, which makes them hard to hide. As these veins typically get worse over the years and lead to stronger visibility, it is smart to get help when they first appear. To minimize the look of veins on the body and face, Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery performs nonsurgical laser vein removal sessions for Ponte Vedra Beach, FL women and men. At your initial consultation, Dr. Roberto Garcia can develop a customized plan to meet your needs and goals for your laser vein reduction treatment.
"Fantastic staff! Extremely satisfied and highly recommended!"- D.F. / Google / Jun 06, 2019
"The entire staff is wonderful and kind! I was scared to take the life changing steps I wanted to. I was worried it would be too expensive, or they would say they couldn’t help me. Instead they helped me work out a game plan and it went wonderfully! Everyone has noticed the changes and so have I! And no one ever pushed me for anything I didn’t need. I was even fretting, asking if I should do more treatments and Brooke shook her head and said I looked great and it would be splitting hairs at point! I would definitely go back if I needed anything! But they did such a wonderful job, I doubt I will need to. I highly recommend them, and even if you decide not to go forward with anything, the consultation is worth it to point you in the right direction of what you want to accomplish."- K.K. / Google / Aug 12, 2019
"best experience for correcting my asymmetrical eyebrows . Even corrected upper lip lines from smoking and downward smile with a lip flip. SO HAPPY. I was so distraught at another highly rated spa thinking i was unfixable or that Botox didn't work for me. I was even incorrectly told all botulinum products are the same and not worth trying different brand names. Brooks Pittman realized i was metabolizing Botox too quickly and switched me to Dysport . What a difference, it lasts longer and no post-injection headaches. Brooks is a DOLL! ...and a miracle injector."- B.K. / Google / Aug 08, 2019

"I was in great hands with Destin! She performed the four recommended microneedling treatments for me, but I loved the experience and results so much, I went in for number five! I cannot begin to give her the praise she deserves! Destin is a true professional who makes you feel like her only patient. This girl will have you feeling (and looking) like a new woman!! Go see her!"- A.T. / Facebook / Jul 31, 2019
Nonsurgical vein reduction sessions at Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery may help the visibility of small or mid-sized veins on the body and face. Popularly called spider veins, these visible blood vessels are not usually a medical issue; however, they are deemed unwanted. Affected men and women tend to avoid certain clothes (such as swimsuits and shorts) or use a lot of cosmetics to attempt to mask their spider veins. Laser vein reduction is great for people who have good overall health, don't have blood clots, and aren't pregnant.
Nonsurgical vein reduction sessions are done in our Ponte Vedra Beach, FL office in around 20 – 40 minutes based on the number of areas treated. For your procedure, you will be asked to relax in a reclined position in one of our treatment rooms as the skin is prepared. At your request, a local numbing cream may be used before the session to minimize any discomfort. The laser is passed across the skin so the wavelengths can reach the spider veins with multiple pulses that don't affect the skin. The blood vessel takes in the energy of the laser, which collapses the wall of the vessel. You will be allowed to leave as soon as you feel comfortable to get back to your regular day.
What to Expect
Following your laser vein reduction session, you may have redness, swelling, and bruising; however, these side effects usually disappear in about 1 – 2 weeks. For quicker healing, compression or support garments can be worn to increase blood circulation. It is necessary to avoid extended exposure to UV rays, and you are encouraged to use sunscreen on areas that have been treated. Several patients see improvements quickly, but the timing of results will be different for every person. At your consultation with Dr. Garcia, potential results will be reviewed, as well as suggestions on the number of treatments necessary to reach your optimal results. Other spider veins will likely appear in time so touch-up sessions may be performed as needed.
