What is Laser Vein and Lesion Reduction?
Usually found on the face and legs, spider veins are little, branching blood vessels that are visible underneath the skin. Typically caused by age, genetics, and other factors, spider veins can be red, blue, and purple and hard to mask. As these veins usually multiply over time and lead to stronger visibility, it is important to seek treatment when they first appear. To reduce the visibility of spider veins and other lesions on the body and face, Exclusively Faces Cosmetic Surgery and Medispa offers nonsurgical laser vein and lesion removal treatments using state-of-the-art Lutronic Clarity II™ for Winchester, VA men and women. During a private consultation, double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthew Karen will develop a personalized plan to meet your needs and goals for your laser vein and lesion reduction treatment.

What Can I Expect from Laser Vein and Lesion Removal?
Laser vein and lesion removal sessions are done in our Winchester, VA office in about 20 – 40 minutes based on the number of areas treated. You will be asked to relax in a reclined position in a private treatment room as the skin is cleaned. At your request, a topical numbing cream can be applied before your procedure to lessen any potential discomfort. The Lutronic Clarity II laser is passed across the skin so the energy can target the spider veins and other lesions with a series of pulses that don't harm the rest of the body. The vessel soaks in the energy of the laser, which closes the walls of the veins. You will be allowed to leave as soon as you feel comfortable to resume your regular activities. After your session, you may have bruising, swelling, and redness, but these side effects usually dissipate in about 1 – 2 weeks. For optimal healing, support or compression garments should be worn to improve your blood circulation. It is important to avoid extended sun exposure, and you should apply sunscreen frequently to the treated areas. Certain patients may see visible improvements quickly, but it varies from person to person. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled as necessary to reach your best results.
