About Spider Vein Treatment
Our long pulsed Nd:YAG laser treats spider veins, broken vessels and cherry angiomas on the face and body. The Yag laser heats and damages blood vessels causing them to collapse. Treatments work best on smaller veins that are roughly the size of large ball point pen marks or smaller. Some vessels may require more than one treatment for optimum results.
"Haven’t started any treatments yet so this is just about my experience with the first visit. I have never done any injectables or other treatments. After a few minutes of talking to the Dr I knew I was in the right place. This place has a great vibe. The staff is kind and very responsive via email. The Dr seems honest, experienced, and not at all pushy. I left excited to return and start."- K.G. / Yelp / May 20, 2022
"The staff is always respectful and kind. Super customer service skills! They answer all my questions over the phone and patient with my needs. Thank you lady’s!!! I love how Michelle the nurse practitioner keeps her notes up to date incase I don’t remember what I did before and how we did it. She reviews your past treatment plan and does adjusting according to your desires. She takes her time overlooking your concerns. I never felt rushed to a decision. I like how a little bit goes a long way with her treatment plans. She has gained my trust. I used to go all the way to post oak for my Botox and fillers but now I know there’s an artist with magic right around the corner."- M.F. / Yelp / May 07, 2022

Spider vein treatment FAQs
What causes spider veins?
Spider veins are the result of broken or weak blood vessels close to the surface of the skin. These blood vessels may appear blue, red, or purple and are often found on visible areas of the legs. Genetics play a major role in who will develop spider veins. Other external factors include pregnancy, hormone changes, and injury to the affected area.
What about over-the-counter creams?
Some drugstore products promise to reduce the appearance of spider veins, but they may not be effective and contain ingredients that irritate the skin. Instead, it is a good idea to consult with About Face & Body Medical Spa before spending money on such products. Our spider vein treatment safely treats the affected areas with very little downtime.
