Laser Vein Removal


At Coastal Dermatology and Medspa, our priority is to deliver quality dermatology care to informed patients in a comfortable and convenient setting.

Laser Vein Removal

Typically found on the face and legs, spider veins are small, branching blood vessels that are visible through the skin. Caused by many factors like age and genetics, spider veins can be purple, red, and blue, which makes them difficult to hide. Since these veins usually get worse over time and lead to stronger visibility, it's smart to seek treatment when they first appear. To minimize the look of veins on the face and body, Krch AESTHETIC MEDICINE utilizes Venus Versa IPL technology, a noninvasive laser vein removal technique, for Phoenix, AZ women and men. In your private consultation, Dr. Ryan Krch N.M.D. will develop a personalized plan based on your unique needs and goals for your laser vein treatment.

Ideal candidates for Laser Vein Removal

IPL laser vein removal treatments at Krch AESTHETIC MEDICINE can help the visibility of small- to medium-sized blood vessels that are on the face and body. Popularly known as spider veins, these blood vessels are not usually a medical problem, but they are considered unwanted. Many people avoid certain clothing (like shorts and swimsuits) or use a large amount of cosmetics to try to mask these veins. Laser vein reduction is great for patients who are in good overall health, do not have a history of blood clots, and are not pregnant.

Laser Vein Removal Procedure Technique

Nonsurgical IPL vein reduction treatments are done in our Phoenix, AZ office as an outpatient procedure in about 20 – 40 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas treated. During your procedure, you will lay comfortably in a private treatment room as the affected area is prepared. If requested, a topical anesthetic can be applied before your session to minimize any potential discomfort. The Venus Versa IPL laser is passed over the area so the energy can target the veins through a series of pulses that don't affect the skin. The blood vessel takes in the laser energy, which collapses the wall of the vessel. You will be able to leave our office as soon as you feel comfortable to resume your normal day.

What to expect from your Laser Vein Removal Treatment

Following your laser vein removal treatment, you may have swelling, redness, and bruising, but these symptoms should disappear in about 7 – 10 days. For quicker healing, support or compression garments can be worn to increase blood circulation. It's important to avoid prolonged sun exposure, and you should apply sunscreen frequently to areas that have been treated. Many patients see visible improvements quickly, but the timing of results will vary for each patient. At your initial consultation with Dr. Ryan, realistic expectations will be discussed, along with recommendations on how many sessions will be needed to reach your best results. Other spider veins will probably appear over time, so touch-up sessions may be needed every few years.
