Is Laser Vein Removal Painful?
Vascular problems, like spider veins, can be unsightly and difficult to conceal except with full-coverage clothing and makeup. Spider veins may be hereditary or the result of environmental causes, such as excessive standing, trauma, obesity, or overexposure to UV rays or high heat, and are generally located on the legs or face—right where they’re most visible. If you long for the freedom to wear what you want without covering up, Pure Beauty can help.
How Does the Excel Laser Work?
Spider veins appear deep purple, red, or blue close to the surface of the skin and are quite difficult to conceal. No over-the-counter cream or treatment exists, so many people feel they just have to live with them. Not anymore. Vascular laser treatments are the gold standard for treating spider veins, and the Excel laser by Cutera is a cut above the rest. With dual wavelengths at 532 nm and 1064 nm, Excel technology is faster and more efficient at clearing dysfunctional veins, collapsing their structure so the body reabsorbs them and reroutes the blood supply to healthy vessels. Excel is especially effective at treating rosacea and vascular lesions on the face and around the nose.
Am I a Good Candidate?
While a consultation will provide a definitive answer to your candidacy, most people with spider veins respond well to Excel laser vein removal regardless of their skin type. The technology within the Excel system is effective on both surface vein insufficiency and deeper, darker vascular lesions.
Is Treatment Painful?
Patient comfort is a priority, and Excel’s CoolView sapphire technology ensures the treatment area is uninjured. This minimizes the potential for burns and keeps the skin surrounding the damaged veins comfortable and cool. Experienced recipients of laser vein removal report a pinching sensation with the laser pulses, but treatment is quick, often just 15 minutes. You may experience slight redness or swelling of the treatment area, but this is quickly resolved within a few hours or a day. Multiple treatments may be recommended to completely collapse the walls of your dysfunctional veins, but the number and frequency is determined by the individual patient’s unique situation, and the size of the area being treated. Patients should expect the treatment plan to span between 6-9 months.

Downtime and Results
Skin sensitivity may persist for 24-hours, during which time you should avoid sun exposure as much as possible, but patients are usually quick to resume their regular, busy schedules. Because it takes time for the veins to fully collapse and be absorbed by the body, results are not immediate. Persistence is key, and you’ll be ready to bare your legs and lighten your makeup for all to see. Live spider-vein free with Pure Beauty’s laser vein removal treatments.
Vascular health is nothing to take lightly, and only trained providers experienced with laser technologies under the supervision of a board-certified physician, like Dr. Charles J. Sarosy and the team at Pure Beauty Medical Spa, are safe. Spider veins may be a sign of a deeper underlying health concern so having a proper evaluation before any vein treatment is recommended for your safety. Your comprehensive vein assessment during your consultation should answer any questions you may have and provide you with a complete treatment plan. Say goodbye to spider veins and rosacea at Pure Beauty.
