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. Since these veins typically progress over the years and lead to greater visibility, it's smart to get treatment when you first notice them. To reduce the visibility of spider veins on the body and face, Infinite Wellness & Aesthetics offers noninvasive laser vein removal treatments with the cutting-edge Alma Harmony XL PRO Dye-VL for Yarmouth, ME residents. In your private consultation, our professionals will create a personalized plan based on your needs and goals for your laser vein treatment.

"I had a fantastic experience at Infinite Wellness. This was my first laser treatment and I was a little nervous but Brandi was very comforting and professional. She was kind enough to do a free consultation via telehealth before my first appointment so she could answer all my questions. The technology she used for the treatment was painless for me. Looking forward to returning for my future appointments. Would highly recommend!"- H.L. / Google / Apr 29, 2021
How Does Laser Vein Removal Work?
Laser vein removal sessions are completed in our Yarmouth, ME office as an outpatient procedure in about 20 – 40 minutes, based on the size and number of areas treated. For your laser vein reduction, you will be asked to lay comfortably in a private treatment room as the affected area is cleansed and prepared. At your request, a local anesthetic may be applied before your procedure to reduce any potential discomfort. The laser handpiece is passed over the area so the energy can target the veins through a series of pulses that don't harm the skin or surrounding tissues. The abnormal blood vessel takes in the energy of the laser, which closes the walls of the veins, causing the body to begin reabsorbing it. You will be able to leave as soon as you feel comfortable resuming your regular activities.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does laser vein removal cost?
Laser vein removal is a treatment that will vary in price depending on the number of veins being addressed and how many sessions are suggested to produce the best possible results. During your consult, a member of our team will evaluate your veins, the size, and where they are located, then decide on your custom-tailored treatment outline to establish your cost. Infinite Wellness & Aesthetics accepts numerous payment methods and often provides specials on treatments such as laser vein removal.
Should I get laser vein removal or sclerotherapy?
A laser vein removal treatment is suitable to address veins of all types and sizes. Based on your situation, laser vein removal may be better than others, according to what is being addressed. Laser vein treatments can work effectively for some veins, but some patients might be a better candidate for sclerotherapy, which places a sclerosing liquid right into the vein to treat it. Varicose veins work well with laser-based vein treatments; however, if the vein is larger, surgery might be better. We will work with you to determine your best treatment choice based on your particular needs and goals.
Does the vein go away?
Laser-based vein removal will concentrate on the vein by emitting a focused beam of energy that heats the vein and then eradicates it. The laser is precise and focuses on only the target area — so it won't hurt the surrounding skin. When the vein collapses, it will take about 1 – 2 months for it to be flushed out of your body and vanish.
Where can laser vein removal be used?
Spider veins may be found on your facial area, legs, back of the legs, and around the ankles. In most areas of the face and body, laser-based vein removal can be a good treatment solution. Our top-of-the-line laser uses precision as it targets the selected vein — so the tissue and skin around the veins are unaffected.
Is laser vein removal painful?
Prior to your procedure, our team typically will put on a numbing ointment to keep you relaxed. Most patients feel a brief snapping sensation when the laser targets the vein. Many lasers on the market, including the one we use, are complete with a special safety feature that helps produce a cooling effect. This decreases discomfort while also preventing the laser from overheating, which may result in an injury or other damage to the treated skin.
