About 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, Kind Health Group offers noninvasive laser vein removal sessions for Encinitas, CA women and men. In your private consultation, our MedSpa team will develop a personalized plan based on your unique needs and goals for your laser vein treatment.

"This place is tucked away just off the 5 and Santa Fe drive. The atmosphere when entering falls more on the side of medical office than med spa; it emotes a well decorated, clean, cozy, professional, vibe. Refreshments and snacks are available while you wait, and staff is friendly. Definitely a boutique medical office experience. I was extremely happy with the level of care and attention I received from front desk staff and medical staff alike. I received some cosmetic services that were easily, knowledgeably, and well administered, and will definitely be returning. The prices alarr competitive, reasonable, and appropriate. I was so happy with my results, and the entire experience!"- H.A. / Yelp / Jul 10, 2019

"I have been going two kind health for a year and the person I see is Annie. She is a health coach I came in for sculpting and Doctor Nana said I think that you need something different and she recommended Annie and I have been so thoroughly thrilled in the 12-month I changed my habits I have reduced my weight from 194 to 157 today. She helped me to look at things differently and I'm still working on myself and I'm doing other things but she gave me the guidance that kind of got my brain clicked in to take better care of myself I'm very proud of her and she is a very patient person and she did not push me. And in May I just had my 75th birthday and for me to change like this at this time in life is not quite a miracle but maybe just short of one. I do give a lot of the credit to Annie for her help so if you want somebody to be your health coach about things that are not necessarily exactly Medical but please call in and go by and see them it's a really fabulous office just like other people have reviewed the front desk staff it's nice and clean and presentable and very soothing that helps the process from the minute you walk through the door. Karen gives great big kudos to everyone there and especially thanks Annie"- K.E. / Yelp / Jun 20, 2019
Laser vein removal treatments at Kind Health Group can help the visibility of small to medium-sized blood vessels that are on the face. 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 number 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.
Nonsurgical vein reduction treatments are done in our Encinitas, CA 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 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
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. Several patients see visible improvements quickly but the timing of results will vary for each patient. At your initial consultation, realistic expectations will be discussed along with recommendations on how many sessions are needed to reach your best results. Other spider veins will probably appear over time, so touch-up sessions may be needed every few years.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does laser vein removal cost?
A laser vein removal treatment is priced based on how many veins are being treated and how many sessions are recommended for optimal results. In your initial consultation, we will evaluate your veins, the size of them and location, and create your treatment plan to help establish a cost. Kind Health Group offers multiple payment options and we frequently offer specials on treatments like laser vein removal.
Should I get laser vein removal or sclerotherapy?
A laser vein removal treatment can help veins of all sizes and types. Depending on your veins, laser vein removal may work better than others depending on what is being addressed. Lasers work great for some veins; however, some patients may prefer sclerotherapy, which treats the vein by injecting a special solution. Larger veins such as varicose veins often respond well to laser vein treatments, but if the vein is large and bulging, surgery may be better. We will work with you to determine your best treatment choice based on your unique concerns and goals.
Does the vein go away?
Laser vein removal treats the vein with a focused beam of light that heats up the vein and then destroys it. The laser is very precise and is highly focused on the target area, so it will not affect the nearby skin. When the vein collapses, it takes about 4 – 6 weeks for it to be reabsorbed by the body and disappear.
Where can laser vein removal be used?
When veins are found on the face, laser vein removal can be a good treatment option. Our advanced laser uses precision as it targets the selected vein so the surrounding skin and tissue are generally unaffected.
Is laser vein removal painful?
Prior to the procedure, we usually can apply a numbing cream on your skin. Most patients report feeling a mild snap or tingling sensation as the laser focuses on the vein. Most lasers on the market, including the one our practice uses, have a built-in feature that helps provide a cooling effect. This reduces discomfort while at the same time prevents the laser from getting too hot, which can result in a burn or additional damage to your skin.
Remove Spider Veins
Rather than concealing or covering unattractive spider veins on your face, consider nonsurgical laser vein removal treatments at Kind Health Group in Encinitas, CA to improve the appearance of your skin. At your private consultation, we can assess your skin and develop a custom treatment plan to best fit your goals.
