Laser Vein Removal (Motus AY) in Heath, OH

What is Laser Vein Removal?


Commonly found on the face and legs, spider veins are small blood vessels that branch and become visible underneath the skin. Caused by many factors, like genetics and age, spider veins can be blue, red, and purple, which makes them hard to hide. As these veins usually multiply over time and lead to greater visibility, it is smart to get treatment when you first notice them. To minimize the look of veins on the face and body, medical director Dr. Brad Herpolsheimer, Dr. Richard Ruff, and their team at Skin Retouch MediSpa offers nonsurgical laser vein removal using Motus AY for Heath, Coshocton, and Pataskala, OH women and men. At your private consultation, we will suggest a customized plan based on your needs and goals for your laser vein treatment.

What Can I Expect From Spider Vein Removal?

Nonsurgical vein removal sessions are performed in our Heath, OH office as an outpatient procedure in around 20 – 40 minutes based on the size and number of areas being addressed. For your procedure, you will relax in a reclined position in a private treatment room as the affected area is cleaned. If requested, a local anesthetic may be used before your treatment to minimize any potential discomfort. The Motus AY laser handpiece is passed across your skin so the wavelengths can reach the spider veins through a series of pulses that don't affect the skin. The blood vessel soaks in the energy of the laser, which collapses and closes the wall of the vessel. You will be able to leave as soon as you feel comfortable to resume your normal activities. After your laser vein removal treatment, you may notice redness, swelling, and bruising, but these symptoms should dissipate in about 7 – 10 days. For faster healing, compression or support garments should be worn to encourage blood circulation. It is important to avoid extended sun exposure, and you are encouraged to use sunscreen on areas that have been treated. Some patients may see improvements immediately, but outcomes will vary for every person. At your consultation, we will discuss realistic expectations along with recommendations on the number of treatments needed to achieve your optimal results. Other spider veins will likely appear over time so touch-up sessions may be needed every few years.
