If you sometimes avoid showing your legs because you have spider veins — those small clusters of red, blue or purple veins that appear on the thighs, calves and ankles — you are not alone. It’s estimated that at least half of all women are bothered by this common cosmetic problem.
In some women, spider veins become noticeable in their early 20s. For others, the veins may not become obvious until they reach their 40s. Men get spider veins, too. However, usually they are concealed by hair growth on the leg.

VBeam Perfecta is the most advanced vascular laser available. When you think of Vbeam, think “reds”. It is the most effective photo therapy available for treating conditions with a vascular “red” component. The Pulse Dye laser targets the vessels that cause the issues while sparing other skin structures such as hair follicles.
Vbeam Perfecta is the gold standard for safely and quickly treatinga full spectrum of discolorations and conditions with a vascular origin. This includes acne scarring and active acne, rosacea, post-procedure bruising, treatment resistant warts,poikiloderma, port wine stains, red or pink stretch marks, facial veins and leg veins.
Both men and women can significantly benefit from treatments, eliminating or controlling conditions like melasma, rosacea, constant flushing, redness, ruddy complexion or broken capillaries on the face and body. The team at Imagine will consult with you about your particular concern and determine the best treatment plan. Often the team at Imagine Plastic Surgery will combine Vbeam with other energy modalities to achieve the most effective and aesthetically sound outcomes.
Although the Vbeam Perfecta is the safest and most efficacious vascular laser for the face… deep leg veins will not always be treated effectively with this device. For deep spider leg veins an alternative technology such as a 1064/Yag is recommended..and as for varicose veins either schlerotherapy or endovenous ablative surgeries
The Vbeam Perfecta delivers an intense but gentle burst of light into targeted areas of the skin. There, it is absorbed by the blood vessels or melanin in pigmented areas, safely treating the condition. During the treatment, the skin receives additional protection through the patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) which delivers a cooling cryogen mist before the laser is delivered. The DCD increases comfort during treatment and minimizes side effects such as additional redness. Most treatments are performed with the patient in a comfortable reclined position. The treatment area is cleansed and protective eyewear is provided. Most patients experience a warm, tingling sensation with each laser pulse. Most patients report a sensation similar to mild sunburn after the treatment. Anesthetics are usually not required. Depending on your specific condition and treatment goals, the procedure takes anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes. Afterwards, a calming cream and cold compresses may be applied, as well as sunscreen.
Most patients notice results immediately with lasting results within a few weeks. It is safe for most skin types with proper settings. Patients are able to return to normal routines and activities immediately. Additionally, treatments are customized to your specific skin type and color providing the best possible results. The incidence of dark spots, white spots, and scarring is extremely low. Occasionally purpura, a laser bruise, may occur. It usually disappears in three to five days.
