The Science:

Vein removal, also known as vein sclerotherapy or laser vein treatment, is a procedure designed to eliminate or significantly reduce the appearance of unwanted veins, particularly spider veins and varicose veins. The procedure’s science involves various techniques, but it’s most commonly associated with sclerotherapy and laser therapy. Here’s an overview of the science behind vein removal:

  1.  Sclerotherapy:
    • Sclerosing Agent: Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a sclerosing agent, typically a saline solution, directly into the unwanted vein. The sclerosing agent irritates the lining of the vein, causing it to collapse, close off, and eventually fade from view. The choice of sclerosing agent may vary depending on the size and type of the treated veins.
    • Blood Vessel Compression: After the sclerosing agent is injected, compression or pressure is applied to the treated area, typically using compression stockings or bandages. This compression helps to ensure that the vein walls adhere together, improving the effectiveness of the treatment.
    • Natural Healing: Over time, the body’s natural healing process works to absorb the collapsed vein. Blood flow is redirected through healthier veins, and the treated vein gradually disappears from view.
  2. Laser Therapy
    • Focused Laser Energy: Laser vein removal involves the use of focused laser energy. The laser emits a specific wavelength of light that is absorbed by the pigment in the blood (hemoglobin) within the unwanted vein. The energy from the laser converts into heat, coagulating the blood within the vein and causing the vein to collapse.
    • Tissue Reabsorption: After the vein collapses, the body gradually reabsorbs the tissue over time. The damaged vein is broken down and removed through natural processes, leaving little to no visible trace of the treated vein.

Key Points to Note:

  • Vein removal procedures, whether through sclerotherapy or laser therapy, are generally minimally invasive and performed on an outpatient basis.
  • Both procedures can effectively treat spider veins and small varicose veins on the legs, face, and other areas.
  • Sclerotherapy is particularly effective for larger veins, while laser therapy may be preferable for smaller, more superficial veins.
  • The specific technique chosen depends on the type, size, and location of the veins being treated, as well as individual patient preferences and the recommendations of a healthcare provider.

It’s important to note that vein removal is generally considered safe and can provide significant cosmetic improvements for individuals with unwanted veins. Additionally, the effectiveness of the treatment can vary from person to person, and multiple sessions may be required for optimal results.

The Benefits:

The benefits of vein removal procedures, such as sclerotherapy and laser therapy, include both cosmetic and health-related advantages. These treatments are primarily designed to address the appearance and discomfort associated with unwanted veins, including spider veins and varicose veins. Here are the key benefits:

  • Elimination of Unwanted Veins: Vein removal procedures can effectively eliminate or significantly reduce the appearance of unwanted veins, including spider veins and varicose veins. This can lead to smoother, clearer skin and improved overall appearance, particularly in areas such as the legs or face.
  • Enhanced Self-Esteem: Removing unsightly veins can have a positive impact on an individual’s self-esteem and self-confidence. It can allow people to feel more comfortable wearing clothing that reveals the treated areas, such as shorts, skirts, or swimwear.
  • Reduction of Discomfort: For individuals with varicose veins, vein removal procedures can alleviate associated symptoms such as pain, aching, throbbing, and leg cramps. These treatments can contribute to an improved quality of life and greater comfort.
  • Enhanced Circulation: Vein removal procedures help redirect blood flow to healthier veins. This improved circulation can contribute to overall vascular health, reducing the risk of complications related to poor blood flow, such as blood clots.
  • Outpatient Procedures: Most vein removal procedures are minimally invasive and can be performed on an outpatient basis. Patients can typically return to their daily activities shortly after treatment.
  • Rapid Recovery: The recovery period following vein removal procedures is usually quick. Patients can often see visible improvements within a few weeks, with final results appearing over a few months.
  • Non-Surgical Approach: Vein removal techniques do not require major surgery, resulting in minimal scarring and a lower risk of complications compared to more invasive surgical procedures.
  • Tailored Approach: Treatment plans are often tailored to individual needs, with different procedures available for various types and sizes of veins. This customization ensures that patients receive the most appropriate treatment for their specific condition.
  • Reduced Health Risks: In cases of varicose veins, vein removal can help reduce the risk of complications associated with these veins, such as skin ulcers or blood clots.
  • Proven Results: Vein removal procedures are generally safe and have been used successfully for many years. 

It’s important to note that while custom facials can offer immediate improvements in skin texture and appearance, for best results, they are often recommended as part of a regular skincare routine. Consistency is key to maintaining and optimizing skin health.


Vein removal uses diode laser technology that pulses light energy to break down and fade pigmented lesions and veins. The cause of these visible skin irregularities can be from aging, family history, weight gain, lifestyle, and even pregnancy. This treatment improves the appearance of skin lesions and veins, increasing confidence due to clearer skin.

During your procedure, a handpiece emitting valuable light energy is pulsed over the visible vein. In doing so, the vein is damaged, stopping blood flow and redirecting it to healthier vessels. In time, the destroyed veins will be reabsorbed into the body and discarded naturally. Vascular lesions are similar in that pigment is broken up and absorbed naturally, leaving skin clearer. This is a quick and safe process. Veins and lesions will lighten, and color will change and disappear over time.

Most guests will need multiple sessions to achieve maximum results. However, gradual improvement will be seen even after your initial treatment. While you are in treatment, you must make sure to cover the area from UV light and use sunscreen to prevent sun exposure.

Vein Removal is not painful and requires little to no downtime. You may experience mild redness and a slight warming sensation which is normal. This will subside within a couple of hours. Normal and daily activities can resume right away.
