Laser Vein Removal in Chicago and Northbrook, IL

Laser Vein Treatments

Unattractive leg veins and facial vessels are all too common for men and women of every age and great cause of embarrassment for many. Factors that contribute to the cause of facial and leg veins range from pregnancy and genetics to injury and hormonal issues.

Until now, your only options were to cover them with concealers, hide leg veins with pants or suffer through painful injections or invasive, expensive surgery. While we’re not able to prevent veins from forming, with laser we are able to diminish the appearance of leg veins and facial vessels with no incision or downtime and minimal discomfort.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How Are Laser Vein Treatments Performed?

    Cutera® excel® V laser treatments are performed by either Dr. Schlechter or the licensed Aesthetician in the office. A topical anesthesia is not necessary but is available to ease in the discomfort of the treatment. The laser is applied to skin and the laser light energy is delivered in short pulses to the skin. Often, patients find that one or two treatments are sufficient. However, the number of treatments depends on the number, color, and size of the vessels being treated.

  • Am I a Candidate for Laser Vein Treatments?

    Although laser treatments work on most people, we do have all patients go through a thorough consultation with the doctor or esthetician to make sure you are a candidate. As everyone has varying vein issues, during the consultation you will be given pricing and an idea of how many treatments will be necessary to get the desired results.

  • Recovery From Laser Vein Treatments?

    Following your treatment, some redness, localized swelling or bruising may occur. This will resolve within one to two weeks of getting the treatment. For larger leg veins that are treated, a brownish pigment may persist for a few weeks. Patients can generally resume most normal activity following the treatment. We recommend sunscreen always be applied to any treated areas that receive sun exposure.
