About Vascular Laser Therapy
The Art of Plastic Surgery can eliminate your vexing veins with the power of laser light! Laser treatments can be customized for different skin tones and conditions. The result is exceptional skin revitalization with minimal discomfort.
The amazing science behind laser treatments is deceptively simple. You see, what we perceive as “white” light actually contains a full spectrum of color. We can see these colors when a crystal prism refracts a ray of sunlight into a glorious rainbow.
Similarly, the laser device sprays your skin in many luminous wavelengths. The bands of light react to the pigments in unwanted features, like rosy red rosacea and scarlet spider veins.
Do Lasers Work for Facial Spider Veins?
Yes. Light-based therapies are very effective at safely removing spider veins, broken capillaries and the symptoms of rosacea without affecting the surrounding skin. The device’s electromagnetic light energy can be especially attuned to resonate with red wavelengths. The focused light vaporizes hemoglobin-gorged, crimson veins. But, since the adjacent tissue is a different color than the intended target, it is also a different frequency of good vibrations that are unaffected by the laser.

What Is the Best Treatment for Facial Veins?
Laser therapy is the best for banishing facial veins and rosy rosacea. That’s because it quickly and directly targets the offending pigments with minimal side effects. The electromagnetic rays are as decisive as a bolt from Mt. Olympus. But they are as harmless to the rest of your skin as a cool sea spray on a summer’s day. With their power, precision and ease, it is no wonder that laser and light-based treatments have become a staple in cosmetic dermatology.
Over time, capillaries beneath the skin become raised and may even burst. Laser treatments effectively get rid of these damaged capillaries without harming the surrounding tissue.
Those who suffer from rosacea understand how embarrassing this chronic facial condition can be. Laser treatments dramatically reduce the overall redness, flushing and dilated capillaries.

How Long Do Laser Treatments Take?
Each light treatment takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes to complete.
Is There Any Pain With Laser Treatment?
There is minimal discomfort during the laser treatment. For those who have more sensitive skin, Dr. Fedele can use a topical anesthetic cream to numb the treatment area prior to the procedure.
Dr. Fedele recommends multiple laser treatments to ensure optimum results. The number of treatments needed will vary based on your skin type and your desired outcomes.
Laser treatments are non-invasive and require no downtime to recover. Immediately following laser light therapy vein removal, the skin may appear red and flushed. Tiny capillaries may appear more visible. Brown spots may appear darker. However, all of these changes gradually fade over a period of a few days. Most patients can return to work and resume normal activities as soon as the treatment is complete.
Following your laser treatment, you can expect to see a gradual decrease in overall redness and flushing. Patients often report smoother skin. Many people with rosacea see an improvement in breakouts, allowing them to decrease or discontinue their medications.
These improvements are gradual and will be more visible after each treatment. Some patients may find they benefit from an ongoing series of laser treatments.
How Long After Laser Treatments Do Spider Veins Disappear?
Lasers move at the speed of light, but the results of aesthetic laser treatments take about two to six weeks to fully manifest. When the light-based device addresses your vascular lesions and rosacea spots, it is precisely attuned for swift incineration. Your spidery veins are vaporized. But their long goodbye is done by degrees as they fade from view each day until finally, they disappear. The treated areas are noticeably clearer and, in most cases, the skin continues to improve with each successive treatment.
What Does Laser Treatment for Facial Veins Cost in Cleveland?
Dr. Fredele will qualify you for light-based therapy (or a reasonable alternative) at your initial consultation. Since every course of treatment is customized to the individual, it’s only prudent that the doctor quotes your cost after an intake interview, after he’s gotten a better sense of the particulars of your case.

What is an aesthetic laser?
An aesthetic laser is a type of light-based therapy that is used throughout the cosmetic industry. Light-based treatments spray a narrow beam of photonic energy resonating at a single frequency. In the dazzling world of optics, varying electromagnetic frequencies are responsible for the entire visible color spectrum and beyond. Modern technology has harnessed this power in a hand-held aesthetic device that has heaps of cosmetic utility. Depending on which frequency the laser is attuned to, the light will be drawn to a very specific color, like the red of spider veins or the deep hues of buried hair follicles. The laser passes harmlessly through surface skin to do its work within the dermis. When the focused beam of light comes into contact with the appropriate pigment, the target is gently and irrevocably vaporized, leaving your skin with a smooth and even finish.
Do unsightly spider veins return after laser treatment?
Once laser therapy zaps away your facial veins, they stay zapped! What’s left of the incinerated vascular lesions are absorbed by the body over the two to six weeks immediately following your treatment. They will not come back. However, men and women who suffer such striking veins are very often prone to them. That is an undeniable and unfortunate fact. So, when we get rid of the veins, the underlying propensity for them to develop is still there! Susceptibility to spider veins is, in large part, genetically determined.
