Visible veins on your face and legs may make you feel self-conscious about showing off your bare skin. If you’re tired of feeling as though your veins are all people see, it’s time to discover our menu of vein treatments at Total Dermatology in Irvine, CA.
What are Vein Treatments?
“Vein treatments” is an umbrella term that’s used to describe any procedure designed to minimize or fade the appearance of visible facial veins (rosacea, spider veins) or leg veins (spider veins, varicose veins). The ultimate goal of vein treatment is to help decrease visibility while promoting the appearance of clearer and smoother skin.
How Do Vein Treatments Work?
At Total Dermatology, we offer two specific vein procedures, each designed to produce excellent results:
- Perfecta VBeam Laser: This technology uses “micro-pulses” which sends the laser energy in very short bursts instead of one long pulse that can affect more area than that being targeted. The laser energy works to gradually close the visible vein; once the vein is closed, it is reabsorbed by the body, leaving behind clearer skin.
- Sclerotherapy: This treatment uses a special injectable saline solution to directly target spider veins, particularly those in the legs. The saline solution irritates the treated vein, causing it to close up. Like with the Perfecta VBeam Laser, once the vein closes up, it’s reabsorbed back into the body.
The best vein treatment for you will largely depend on the type of veins you want treated, as well as where the veins are located.
Am I a Good Candidate for Vein Treatments?
You’re a good candidate for vein treatments if you have visible spider veins or rosacea in common areas like the legs and face.

What Results Will I See?*
With the right number of treatment sessions, patients can expect to see fewer visible or prominent veins, a clearer appearance, and skin that’s smooth to the touch.
Is There Any Downtime?
There’s no downtime associated with vein treatments, but you may be restricted from strenuous physical activity for the first 24 hours after your procedure. You may feel some slight burning or tingling immediately after the procedure; these side effects are only temporary. You will be required to wear compression stockings immediately following your procedure, which can be purchased before your procedure or in the office.
