If you are one of the millions of Americans with unsightly spider veins, you will be happy to know that our team at Northside Plastic Surgery provides effective, non-invasive treatments for spider vein removal. Our advanced laser treatment systems can treat large, web-like veins on your thighs, legs, and feet as well as spider veins under the delicate skin of your nose and face. The best part: these easy, gentle treatments require no downtime, and can be completed in under an hour.

What are spider veins?

Spider veins are structurally-damaged veins under your skin that have an appearance similar to purple, blue, and red spiderwebs. They are not known to pose any medical risk, but their unsightly appearance can make you self-conscious and unwilling to bare your skin at the beach or pool, wear revealing clothing, and leave you feeling less confident in intimate situations.

Spider veins appear in as high as fifty percent of Americans and can be caused by several factors, including:

  • Genetic predisposition
  • Standing or sitting for long periods over time
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Excess weight
  • Age
  • Birth control pills

Facial spider vein removal

Spider veins on the face can make you look older and less attractive. Facial skin is too delicate for many of the harsher lasers that are effective at removing spider veins – except for one: the Nd:YAG laser. At Northside Plastic Surgery, we use this revolutionary laser system to safely and gently heat and destroy these damaged veins even in the most delicate facial areas. Spider veins usually appear around your eyes and nose, which is why it requires top-level skills and experience.

Removing spider veins from your thighs, legs, and feet

Your thighs, legs, and feet are the most likely area to develop spider veins. Thankfully, removing them is as simple and easy as a few quick laser treatments from the Nd:YAG laser system. This revolutionary laser system is fully customizable and allows us to use specific wavelengths and frequencies of light to target and remove the troublesome veins without damaging your skin or the nearby tissue.

Am I a candidate?

Candidates for spider vein removal include those who:

  • Suffer from unsightly spider veins on their face, thighs, legs, or feet
  • Desire a clean, fresh appearance without these blemishes
  • Are in general good health
  • Do not smoke (or are willing to quite for a few days before and after treatment)
  • Are not actively pregnant or breastfeeding

What to expect with spider vein removal?

When you arrive at Northside Plastic Surgery for spider vein removal, we will begin with a thorough analysis of your condition and discuss your options. The vein removal process is performed in our in-office treatment room, where you will be resting comfortably in privacy. We will prepare the treatment area by using a topical anesthetic gel. The laser treatment is then performed, which takes less than an hour and is relatively painless. Some patients describe the sensation as feeling like the snap of a rubber band, while others experience it as a minor sting.

Once the treatment is complete, you can expect some of the minor vessels to disappear very quickly, while others vanish over time. There is no downtime, though you may feel some residual bruising or redness for a few hours after the treatment. You may need up to three treatments to entirely remove all spider veins in an area, though this varies by patient.

Re-Opening May 4th Update:

As a valued member of the Northside Plastic Surgery family, I want to personally update you on steps our practice has taken to protect you and your health in light of the COVID-19 situation.

As it has always been, the safety and health of our patients and team members remains our highest priority. As your physician, I want to thank you for your support and the confidence you have in our practice. In response to the coronavirus, we have taken the basic CDC recommendations and have added the following extra measures to protect our patients:

  1. We are waiving our $150 fee for Virtual Consultations for new and established patients.
  2. We ask all patients to stay in their car and call us upon arrival. Once on-site, your temperature will be taken along with a screening questionnaire, you will be provided hand sanitizer, and then escorted directly to an exam room or empty reception area. We ask all patients to wear a surgical mask or face covering to their appointment. As a high-end practice, we are taking advantage of our large size and multiple VIP waiting areas to maximize social distancing.
  3. We are performing regular and careful screening of patients with a bias for suspicion that a patient might have the coronavirus.
  4. All staff are screened daily with a temperature check and symptom survey. All staff are required to wear a surgical mask, gloves, and perform frequent hand washing.
  5. We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas hourly (including lobbies, furniture, elevators, door handles, exam chairs, public bathrooms, etc.) and have continued the use of hospital-grade disinfectant. All exam rooms and highly touched surfaces are sanitized in between patients.
  6. Because of the increased sanitizing requirements, we have reduced the number of patients that will be seen every hour and spacing out appointments.
  7. Since we have our own fully accredited on-site surgery center, we do not have actively infected patients using our operating rooms such as in hospitals. This provides a great security blanket for our patients. We are currently performing at full capacity and completely prepared to perform all scheduled surgeries and procedures and are taking all necessary precautions to ensure your safety and well-being.
  8. We are postponing all advanced training sessions for visiting physicians and providers until June.
  9. We ask that all patients with upper respiratory symptoms such as cough, fever, shortness of breath to please reschedule your appointments and call your family doctor.
  10. For more, you can always find up-to-date and accurate information on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.

Thank you for being a loyal patient. We will remain attentive to this situation and keep you updated on any changes with the practice. We are privileged to serve you and look forward to seeing you soon.
