About Laser Vein Removal
Commonly found on the legs and face, spider veins are small blood vessels that branch and become visible through the skin. Caused by many factors, like age and genetics, spider veins may be blue, purple, and red, which makes them difficult to conceal. As these veins typically get worse over the years and lead to stronger visibility, it's important to seek treatment when you first notice them. To reduce the size and appearance of spider veins on the body and face, John Williams Plastic Surgery offers noninvasive laser vein removal with LumenisM22's Multi-Spot ND:YAG for Scottsdale, AZ women and men. At your private consultation, plastic surgeon Dr. John Williams or a member of our team can suggest a personalized plan based on your unique needs and goals for your laser vein treatment.
LumenisM22's Multi-Spot ND:YAG is also highly effective in the removal of pigmented lesions on the face and body, including cherry angiomas, moles, skin tags, and more. In most cases, lesions pose little to no risk to a patient's health but may cause decreased self-confidence or frustration if they are large enough to become caught on clothing. Ask a member of our team to examine your lesion to determine if treatment with laser is the right option for you.
"Words can not express how truly happy I am with my whole experience! I have wanted this surgery for years, but never thought I would actually voluntarily have someone cut me open. Trust in someone to do that is HUGE! Dr. Williams put me at ease immediately. After meeting and speaking with Dr. Williams I knew I was in good hands! He explained the whole process and everything I should expect (good and bad). If I had known about him before I wouldn’t have waited so long! His whole staff is fantastic, especially Adriana! Thank you for EVERYTHING! It’s been a month, I know I have a long way to go till I’m all healed, but I am already so very happy with the results! If you are looking for a great surgeon look no further!"- K.L. / Google / Sep 22, 2018

"amazing surgical experience - From the moment I met Dr Williams and his staff I felt very at ease. I went to have an explant and a lift after having trouble with my implants and hating them for 10 years. Dr. Williams listened and was very thorough and has a great bedside manner. My Dr recommended him and she was spot on. I had my explant and lift March 15th and I have had limited pain and have not needed pain medicine only Advil. He is very gentle and precise! I am so impressed and couldn't be happier even at 3 days post op! If you are considering a Dr, go see Dr Williams and his staff!!! They are amazing!!!"- R. / RealSelf / May 19, 2020
Laser vein removal treatments at John Williams Plastic Surgery may improve the visibility of small to medium-sized blood vessels that are on the face and body. Popularly called spider veins, these blood vessels are rarely a medical problem, but they are considered unwanted. Many people avoid certain clothes (such as shorts and swimsuits) or use a large amount of makeup to try to mask their spider veins. Laser vein reduction is best for patients who have overall good health, don't have a history of blood clots, and aren't pregnant.
Laser vein removal sessions are completed in our Scottsdale, AZ office in about 20 – 40 minutes, based on the number of areas treated. For your procedure, you will relax in a reclined position in one of our treatment rooms as the skin is cleansed and prepared. At your request, a topical anesthetic can be applied before your treatment to minimize any discomfort. The laser handpiece is passed across the skin so the energy can target the veins through a series of pulses that don't affect the rest of the body. The vessel absorbs the energy of the laser, which collapses the wall of the vessel. You will be allowed to leave right after the treatment to get back to your normal activities.
What to Expect
After your laser vein reduction treatment, you may experience bruising, redness, and swelling, but these symptoms usually subside within 1 – 2 weeks. For quicker healing, support or compression garments should be worn to improve your blood circulation. It's important to avoid prolonged exposure to UV rays, and you should use sunscreen on treated areas. Certain patients see improvements quickly, but the timing of results will be different for every person. During your consultation at our facility, realistic expectations will be discussed, as well as recommendations on the number of treatments needed to get your best results. Other spider veins will likely appear in time so follow-up procedures may be performed as needed.
