Vascular Lesion REMOVAL (Facial and Leg Veins)
The GentleYAG has defined itself as the “Gold Standard” for treating facial veins, facial telengiectasias and non-varicose leg veins. Since the variable pulse GentleYAG was introduced in 2004, Candela with feedback from its providers, has revised and updated their laser settings to a point where results are near perfect. Moreover, the laser safety profile has improved and there is minimal to no downtime after the procedure.
The same DCD cooling and GentleYAG technology apply. Unlike pigment, which is targeted by the laser light in hair removal, the GentleYAG laser light is absorbed by the oxygen carrying component of the blood called Hemoglobin. When the hemoglobin absorbs the energy of the laser, it heats the blood and eliminates the unwanted vessels.
Laser treament for leg veins can be slightly uncomfortable. To minimize discomfort, your laser provider may intermittently apply ice packs during the procedure or, anesthetic cream is available to apply before the procedure if desired.
Although rare, side effects are possible. They may include redness, swelling, change in skin pigmentation (lighter or darker), bruising or blisters. Side effects do not last more than a few days, and permanent side effects are exceedingly rare.
Laser Vein Treatment
Laser Vein Therapy works by heating unwanted blood vessels with laser energy which causes coagulation (the blood flow stops). The vein becomes less noticeable and, in most cases, will disappear.

Frequently Asked Questions About Laser Vein Treatment
What areas can be treated?
Areas such as the hands, neck, chest and legs can be treated, but the most common area of treatment is the face.
What kind of recovery can I expect?
Typically, there is no downtime and you may resume daily activity immediately. You may experience some redness after the procedure, but it is temporary. Any vessels denatured by the laser will be reabsorbed by your body over a period of time in a natural cleansing process. Most small capillaries will become invisible almost immediately, since they will no longer contain blood.
What will happen during the procedure?
Laser energy will be delivered specifically to the area of your skin being treated. You may feel a slightly warm or hot sensation as the laser pulses are absorbed by the unwanted vessels. Most people report little to no discomfort. It may take a few minutes to half an hour depending on the size of the area to be treated.
What aftercare will I need?
You will be given post-care instructions. Your skin will be sensitive to ultraviolet light and you must avoid direct sun exposure for 10 days after Laser Facial Vein Treatment.
How much does Laser Vein Treatment cost?
The cost of this treatment varies from client to client, depending on size and extent of the area being treated. Schedule your complimentary Laser Vein Treatment at SOCAL Lazer and Medi-Spa for a more specific cost.
