What Is Laser Vein Removal?
Commonly located on the face and upper thighs, spider veins are small, branching blood vessels that are visible through the skin. Caused by many factors, like genetics and age, spider veins may be purple, red, or blue, which makes them difficult to mask. Since these unattractive veins typically get worse over the years and lead to greater visibility, it's important to get treatment at the first signs. To minimize the visibility of veins on the body and face, MD Cosmedx Laser and Wellness Center offers noninvasive laser vein removal treatments for Bowling Green, KY residents. At your private consultation, Dr. Richard Welch can create a customized plan based on your needs and goals for your laser vein reduction treatment.
How Does Laser Vein Removal Work?
Nonsurgical laser vein reduction treatments are completed in our Bowling Green, KY office in about 20 – 40 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas being treated. During your procedure, you will be asked to relax in a reclined position in one of our treatment rooms as the affected area is cleaned. If requested, a topical numbing cream may be used before the treatment to reduce any discomfort. The Harmony XL PRO laser is passed over the area so the wavelengths can target the veins through multiple pulses that don't affect the surrounding tissues. The abnormal blood vessel absorbs the laser energy, which closes the wall of the vessel. You will be able to leave our office immediately to get back to your normal activities.

Laser Vein Removal FAQs
How much does laser vein removal cost?
A laser vein removal treatment is priced based on how many veins are being addressed and how many sessions are needed for optimal results. In your consultation, we will evaluate your veins, their size, and where they are located, and determine the scope of the treatment process to help estimate a cost. MD Cosmedx Laser and Wellness Center accepts multiple payment options, and we offer specials on treatments.
Should I get laser vein removal or sclerotherapy?
Treatments with laser vein removal work well for veins of all sizes and types. Depending on your veins, laser treatment might work better than sclerotherapy, depending on what is being addressed. Laser works well on some veins; however, depending on your needs, you may prefer sclerotherapy, which injects a solution directly into the vein. Varicose veins often respond well to laser vein removal, but surgery may be necessary if the vein is larger. We will work with you to determine your treatment method based on your concerns and goals.
Does the vein go away?
A laser vein treatment will address the vein with a focused beam of light that heats up the vein and then destroys it. The technology is precise and highly focused on the vein, so it won't damage your skin. When the vein has collapsed, it will take about 1 – 2 months for the vein to be reabsorbed by the body and fade away.
