Remove Veins on the Face and Legs
With our GentleYAG system, Dr. Khattab and the experts at PrecisionMD Cosmetic Surgery Center can remove vascular issues such as spider veins on the face and legs quickly and easily. We have helped people throughout the Sacramento area get the look they want, and we can do the same for you.
How does the GentleYAG system remove veins?
GentleYAG uses laser technology, directing powerful yet gentle light-based energy directly into the skin. The laser targets the vein, causing the blood inside it to coagulate. Over time, the vein collapses and eventually disappears.
Because the laser energy is directed toward the vein, the surrounding tissue remains unharmed. Patients report that laser pulses deliver a sensation similar to the snapping of a rubber band against the skin. Discomfort is further minimized by GentleYAG’s patented DCD™ cooling device, which releases cooling bursts of cryogen with each laser pulse.
How soon will I see results?
You will need a few treatment sessions to see results. Expect anywhere from two to six treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. Following your treatment regimen, the veins will gradually change color from blue to light red, and they will eventually vanish over the course of two to six weeks after your last session.
Who is a good candidate for laser vein removal?
Our laser vein removal system features a unique design and long wavelength that allows treatment of clients of all skin tones.
Do the treatments hurt?
Most clients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the hand piece. Although no local anesthesia is typically required, you may choose to use a topical anesthetic prior to treatment. Following the treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.
Are the results from laser treatments for veins permanent?
While there is no cure for veins, once a vein is completely dead and reabsorbed by the body, it should be gone. Due to many factors however, you could form new spider veins that might require touch up treatments.
