What is Laser Vein and Lesion Treatment?
Usually located on the legs and face, spider veins are small, branching blood vessels that are visible through the skin. Caused by age, genetics, and other factors, spider veins can be blue, purple, and red, which makes them difficult to conceal. Since spider veins usually multiply over the years and become more visible, it's advisable to get treatment when they first appear. To reduce the visibility of veins on the face and body, New Body Aesthetics offers nonsurgical laser vein and lesion treatments for men and women in Cincinnati, OH. At your initial consultation, Dr. Cory Gaiser will develop a customized plan based on your unique needs and goals for your laser vein treatment.

Laser Vein and Lesion Treatment FAQs
How much does laser vein and lesion treatment cost?
Your laser vein and lesion treatment is priced, depending on how many veins are being treated and the number of sessions that are needed to attain the desired results. At your consultation, we will evaluate your veins, the size, and where they are located, then determine the scope of the treatment to establish your cost. New Body Aesthetics offers several payment options, and we offer deals on procedures.
Should I get laser vein and lesion treatment or sclerotherapy?
Laser vein and lesion treatment works well for veins of all sizes and types. Based on your needs, some treatments might work better than others based on what is being addressed. While laser vein and lesion treatment works well on some veins, some patients might be a better candidate for sclerotherapy, which uses a solution that is injected directly into the vein. Larger veins, such as varicose veins, often respond well to laser; however, if the vein is larger, surgery might be better. Our team will help you select your treatment method based on your unique needs and wants.
Does the vein go away?
Laser vein removal treats the vein with a focused beam of energy that heats up the vein and then destroys it. The laser is very precise and focuses on the target area so it won't affect your skin. Once the vein collapses, it takes about 4 – 6 weeks for the vein to be reabsorbed by the body and fade away.
Where can laser vein and lesion treatment be performed?
Unwanted spider veins are often located on the face, upper thighs, lower legs, and around the ankles. Anywhere a spider vein exists, laser vein removal can be a good treatment option. Our cutting-edge laser system works with precision as it targets the selected vein so the nearby tissue and skin are unharmed.
Is laser vein and lesion treatment painful?
Prior to your treatment, we may put on an ointment or local anesthetic to numb the area. Some patients report feeling a tingling or snap when the laser is aimed at the target. Most lasers, like the one our practice uses, are equipped with a built-in system 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 the area.
