Two of the most common and confidence-shaking conditions we see at our Renaissance Dermatology & Aesthetics in Zachary are dilated blood vessels and redness. These skin conditions may cause you reluctancy in going without makeup or dressing in a way that exposes the skin with these visible veins present.

Luckily, these easily treatable conditions aren’t ones that have to continue to hamper your self-esteem. Both conditions are easily treated with little recovery needed thanks to laser vein removal treatment.

WHAT TO EXPECT The Laser Vein Removal Process

Laser Vein Removal


Before your laser vein removal at Renaissance Dermatology and Aesthetics in Zachary, you will meet with your physician for a consultation to discuss your individual situation. We will go over any concerns you may have and share all relevant information you should be aware of before scheduling your treatment.


Laser Vein Removal Treatment

First, we apply a handheld laser against the skin, covering the targeted vessels. This handpiece delivers light that penetrates through the skin and into the blood inside the vein. Skin around the vein will be unaffected. As the blood absorbs the energy from the laser, the vein will begin to heat, causing the vessel’s lining to constrict and fade away from the surface of the skin and out of view. This leaves the skin clear and looking as if the veins were never visible.


Next Steps

After your laser vein removal treatment in Zachary, we will discuss any follow-up or post-care instructions you need to be aware of. In the case of larger vessels or additional treatment areas, further appointments may be required to more fully eliminate visibility.
