What is Vein Removal?

Frequently, patients are bothered by small blood vessels that appear on the cheeks, nose, legs and hips. These are called Spider Veins or Spider Telangiectasia. While it is only physically harmful in rare cases, it can certainly damage a person’s confidence and self esteem. If your spider veins are visible in places that are aesthetically unpleasing, they can be eliminated with our state-of-the-art Profile™ Laser System.

Dr. Russell T. Snow will first identify and assess the veins you wish to have treated. Sophisticated Sciton Profile™ computer technology allows Dr. Snow to accurately target only the veins you wish to eliminate.

Vascular Birthmarks such as port wine stains, strawberry angioma and hemangioma are usually responsive to laser therapy. They can be effectively resolved or improved even in infants. Many will diminish on their own but some will leave a residual mark or defect. Some are treated early to avoid potential defects and to avoid the concern of a prominent birthmark. Virtually any age can consider treatment. A series of laser treatments administered at intervals of several weeks are needed for optimal results. Topical anesthetic is usually sufficient for comfortable treatment.
