Are you looking for a better way to get rid of spider veins (doesn’t work for varicose veins)?
At Total Dermatology in Irvine, CA, we’re pleased to offer laser vein removal services for patients who may feel self-conscious or frustrated by the appearance of spider veins. Our laser treatments are designed to safely minimize the appearance of these veins, leaving behind smooth and clear skin on common treatment areas like the legs, calves, and even the face.
One of the most common questions we get around laser vein removal is how much it could potentially hurt. Let’s take a closer look at pain and laser vein removal, including what you can expect from your treatment.
Does Laser Vein Removal Hurt?
Laser vein removal isn’t painful, but it’s not 100% comfortable.
Many of our patients remark that they feel an intense warmth at the treatment site, which can be a little uncomfortable for those with sensitive skin. If you’re concerned about your comfort during laser vein removal treatments, let us know during your initial consultation.
Additionally, patients can have some bruising and tenderness for a couple of weeks after your laser vein removal session.
How Much Does It Cost for Laser Vein Removal?
Laser vein removal can vary depending on your treatment areas and the type of veins you’d like to treat. In general, you can expect to spend anywhere from $1,000 to $2,000 for your total laser vein removal treatments.
Do Veins Grow Back After Removal?
Veins can grow back, especially if the treated vein didn’t 100% close after the first round of treatments. If you’re worried about your veins coming back after treatment, we can provide alternative vein solutions, like sclerotherapy.
