Laser Treatment for Spider Veins and Facial Veins

Laser Treatment for Spider Veins and Facial Veins

Laser Treatment for Spider Veins and Facial Veins services offered in Hamilton Square, Trenton, and Mercer County area, New Jersey

Spider veins are the red or bluish looking squiggly lines that can appear on the face and legs as we age. They get their name from their weblike appearance. Most of the time, spider veins do not result in symptoms other than an undesirable appearance. Although people with extensive spider veins on the legs may have underlying venous issues.

At Kessel Dermatology, servicing the Hamilton Square, Trenton, and Mercer County areas in New Jersey, we utilize the excel V+™ laser to deliver long wavelengths that allow treatment for vascular issues like spider veins for patients of all skin tones. 

How the device works:

  • Releases pulses of light energy that  are absorbed by the pigment in the blood
  • This causes the blood cells within the vein to coagulate
  • Then that energy transfers to the vessel walls sealing the vessel.

For most patients, multiple treatments will be necessary and the specifics of your treatment will be determined during your initial consultation with our providers.

Frequently Asked Questions

As with any procedure, the costs depend on the specific condition for which treatment is being provided and how many treatments are needed. Which varies based on condition and degree of severity.
The excel V+™, which was developed by Cutera, is a state of the art laser system for providing treatment of a variety of vascular skin conditions. Many skin conditions manifest in the form of broken or abnormal blood vessels in the skin, such is the case with rosacea, in which the facial blood vessels dilate excessively causing redness and flushing. The excel V+™ treats these conditions by administering a unique high power green laser that is absorbed by the abnormal blood vessels in the skin. The laser heats the abnormal vessels until they are removed. At the end of treatment, the patient’s natural skin tone and color are restored.
The excel V+™ has been shown effective at treating a number of conditions, including rosacea, acne, telangiectasias, leg veins, brown spots, hyperpigmentation, poikiloderma, fine lines, and cherry angiomas. The excel V+™ treats mild and severe forms of these conditions. The system may also have a cosmetic benefit for patients who have skin lesions or scars from past injuries or surgeries.
The benefit of excel V+™ is that the treatment can be highly adjusted to ensure that the provider is delivering a level of treatment that specifically matches the patient’s skin condition. The system contains various wavelength modes, allowing the delivery of both short pulses for superficial blemishes, such as small lesions and skin discoloration, and longer pulses for deeper vascular conditions, such as leg veins and nodular port wine stains. It also offers a wide range of laser spot sizes to ensure that small treatment areas can be targeted at greater precision and larger areas can be treated in a shorter period. This high level of customization is what makes excel V+™ so effective at treating, often in one session, so many different conditions, which, in the past, would have required several different systems or procedures.
