Vein Treatments

Our advanced lasers treat a variety of vascular skin conditions. Sometimes we are born with blood vessel anomalies and sometimes as we age, spots and dilated blood vessels can create discomfort and or unsightly appearance. Our team is here to treat and guide you through every step of the treatment process. Click one of the links above to learn more. 

Laser Vein & Spot Removal

Our advanced lasers treat vascular lesions such as telangiectasias, cherry angiomas, spider veins, rosacea, as well as pigmented lesions like brown spots, age spots and freckles. Results are often dramatic and visible 2-4 weeks after treatment with little side effects. Some patients only require a single treatment while others require multiple treatments for best results.
Westside Dermatology uses the Cutera ExcelV for Vein and Spot Removal. This highly advanced laser treats a wide range of lesions, including:
  • Vascular Lesions
  • Facial Telangiectasia – surface veins caused by dilation of capillary vessels or arterioles.
  • Cherry Angiomas – slightly raised, red lesions.
  • Spider Angiomas – slightly raised, red spider-like lesions.
  • Scar Neovascularization – redness that may appear around a scar.
  • Rosacea – red facial lesions around the nose and cheeks causing a sunburn look.
  • Spider Veins – small, superficial purple or red veins stretching a web under the skin, often appearing on legs.
  • Pigmented Lesions
  • Lentigines – flat, brown spots on the skin: present on skin with frequent sun exposure
  • Freckles – brown spots on the skin; common on people with fair skin.
  • Dermatosis Paulosis Nigra – small black raised lesions seen primarily on people of Asian or African descent.

Vascular Lesions

Vascular lesions include a range of conditions. Whether it be leg veins, facial veins, angiomas, venous lakes or rosacea, laser and light-based devices have become a viable treatment option to safely and effectively remove and diminish unwanted vascular concerns. Westside uses the Cutera ExcelV for treatments, providing patients a non-invasive, fast and effective treatment option to target unwanted blue, red, and purple lesions while sparing the surrounding skin. 
Vascular lesions are a type of common skin concern, affecting up to 50% of women aged 18 years and older.1 Spider veins, telangiectasias, and diffuse redness may be systemic but are often a result of aging, sun damage or pregnancy. Today, more than 45M individuals are affected by rosacea, a chronic skin condition. Often mistaken for a sunburn or rosy skin, rosacea presents with redness, visible blood vessels and tiny red bumps that can be compared to acne and often worsens over time.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy effectively treats varicose and spider veins.
It is often considered the treatment of choice for small varicose veins.
Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution directly into the vein. The sclerotherapy solution causes the vein to scar, forcing blood to reroute through healthier veins. The collapsed vein is reabsorbed into local tissue and eventually fades.
After sclerotherapy, treated veins tend to fade within a few weeks, although occasionally it may take a month or more to see the full results. In some instances, several sclerotherapy treatments may be needed.
Sclerotherapy is often done for cosmetic purposes — to improve the appearance of varicose and spider veins
The procedure can also improve related symptoms such as:
  • Aching
  • Swelling
  • Burning
  • Night cramps
Sclerotherapy is typically done in our office and doesn’t require anesthesia. It generally takes less than an hour to complete.
Note: If you’re pregnant or breast-feeding, we recommend waiting to have sclerotherapy done.
