Make unsightly facial and leg veins a thing of the past.
At NEWU, we offer the most advanced technology to safely and effectively treat both tiny superficial face veins and deeper blue leg veins on men and women of all skin tones.
Our vein therapy technology combines the ideal laser wavelength with the most flexible parameters to treat the widest range of vessels of any laser or light-based solution. We are able to quickly, safely and effectively treat:
- superficial telangiectasia on the face
- mid-depth spider veins on the face or body
- deep blue reticular veins on the face or body
How does Vein Therapy Work?
Our NEWU medical aestheticians use technology that delivers pulses of light energy that cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel, which is later reabsorbed by your body. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skin’s surface, where it should be.
How many treatments will I need?
Often patients find that one or two treatments are sufficient. However, the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, color, and size of the vessels being treated. Since individual results vary, ask one of our medical aestheticians about your specific condition.
Does Vein Therapy hurt?
Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the handpiece. Although no local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required, many patients opt to use a topical anesthetic prior to treatment. Following the treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.
What are the possible side effects of Vein Therapy?
Although many patients report few if any side effects, those more commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin. These effects typically last for less than 24 hours. Some patients may experience bruising and, in rare instances, blistering may occur. You are welcome to schedule a free consultation with a NEWU medical aesthetician for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.
When will I see results?
Most patients find that the majority of the treated veins have shown significant improvement within two to six weeks of treatment. However, your final results may not be apparent for several months. Over time, it is possible for new veins to appear, but these too can be removed with vein therapy.
