What is Laser Vein Removal?
Commonly located on the face and legs, spider veins are little, branching blood vessels visible through the skin. Caused by factors, like genetics and age, spider veins can be blue, red, or purple, making them hard to conceal. As these veins typically progress over the years and lead to greater visibility, it is important to get treatment when they first appear. Riverbend Family Dental offers noninvasive laser vein removal for residents of St. Paul, MN to decrease the look of blood vessels on the face and body. In your private consultation, we will create a customized plan based on your unique needs and goals for your laser vein reduction treatment.
Laser Vein Removal FAQ
How much does laser vein removal cost?
A laser vein removal treatment is priced based on the number of veins being treated and the number of recommended sessions for ideal outcomes. In your initial consultation, a team member will evaluate your veins, their extent, and their location, then create your custom-tailored treatment outline to help estimate a cost. Riverbend Family Dental offers numerous payment forms and frequently provides promotions on treatments, such as laser vein removal.
Should I get laser vein removal or sclerotherapy?
A laser vein removal treatment can address veins of all varieties and sizes. Depending on your concerns, some treatments might work better than others according to what is being treated. Laser vein treatments may work effectively for some veins; however, some patients may be better candidates for sclerotherapy, which places a sclerosing solution right into the vein to treat it. Larger veins, such as varicose veins, frequently work well with laser-based vein removal; however, a surgical procedure may be better if the vein is larger. We will work with you to select your treatment method, depending on your particular needs and wants.
Does the vein go away?
Laser vein therapy will address the vein with a gentle beam of light that warms the affected vein and removes it. The laser system is meticulous and highly focused on the target vein so that it won't harm the nearby areas of the skin. After the vein collapses, it takes around 1 – 2 months for the vein to be reabsorbed by your system and vanish.
Where can laser vein removal be used?
Visible veins may be situated on the face, thighs, lower legs, and around the ankles. For areas in both the face and body, laser-based vein removal might be an appropriate treatment solution. Our innovative laser system works precisely as it targets the selected vein so that the tissue and skin around the veins are usually unaffected.
Is laser vein removal painful?
Before the treatment, our team can usually put on an anesthetic agent to help you remain at ease. Most people feel a slight tingling sensation or a sting when the laser targets the area. Most laser systems on the market, such as the one we use, are equipped with a built-in feature that helps produce a cooling sensation. This decreases pain while preventing the laser from becoming too hot, which can cause a burn or harm to the treated region.
Riverbend Family Dental Reviews
Riverbend Family Dental is fantastic! Dr. Kate is amazing with my young kiddo--patient, reassuring, and efficient. Scheduling is easy, and appointments are quick. Highly recommend!
Truthfully, this is probably one of the best dental offices around. I haven’t been to the dentist in over a decade, and Kate, who I saw, was very kind and understanding. The chair was very comfortable and it was nice to look at photos of her doggos too instead of an ominous ceiling light. They had coffee and water and fidgets for those who needed them. I highly recommend this office and they do a great job with cleanings!
My experience at Riverbend Family Dental was great. Everyone was extremely courteous, caring and listened to me. I feel confident in the staff at Riverbend Family Dental and highly recommend dental services here. Thank you!
