What is Laser Vein Removal?
Usually located on the legs and face, varicose veins, or spider veins, are small, branching blood vessels that are visible underneath the skin. They can be red, purple, or blue, presenting as hard to hide, unwanted discoloration. They can be caused by a combination of age, genetics, and other factors, and they tend to become progressively more advanced as time goes on. It's advisable to pursue treatment at the first signs. Ohana Aesthetics and Wellness performs nonsurgical laser vein removal for women and men in Orem, UT and the surrounding area. In your private consultation, nurse practitioner Kathy Cooper can suggest a customized laser vein removal plan based on your goals for treatment.
"I, Peggy Larson, want to express my deepest gratitude to you and your staff for all of the help I have received from your office the last year. As you know, I deal with chronic neck and back pain and other physical problems. I was concerned about finding a new doctor when my previous chiropractor retired. I worried about finding someone who could really help me. Dr. Joe has helped me so very much! So many times I have been in severe pain and been able to get relief from my doctor visits. More than that, I am grateful for the compassion and care that has been shown to me. Jeri has been especially kind and has become a trusted friend through my visits. I don't know what I would do without you. I am so appreciative of the help and relief I have been able to receive. Thank you again! Peggy Larson"- L.L. / Google / Sep 25, 2021
"As always I walked in with a problem and left feeling 100% better! I can't say enough good things about the doctors and staff here!"- A.S. / Google / Sep 01, 2021
"I’ve got pretty thick hair on my beard, back of the neck, as well as my back. After a few treatments I’ve noticed a huge difference. I targeted just under my beard, so all the nasty stragglers I shave daily to keep my beard line looking good. Normally after shaving I get razor burn no matter how I tackle it. The first treatment I noticed I wouldn’t get razor burn anymore, and my hair already started coming in thinner. I also had an odd toenail fungus thing and I’ve had 4 treatments on it and it’s already starting to dissipate! I’ve had it for years and it’s nice to see it finally start going away. Would totally recommend for any guy thinking about removing hair in areas that are a hassle to upkeep!"- A.M. / Office Visit / Aug 18, 2021
"AMAZING! I've only had 2 laser hair removal treatments done on my legs and under arms and I've already noticed a huge difference. My skin stays smooth longer, the hair is softer, my ingrown hairs are much less(almost gone), there are less red marks after shaving, and I don't have to shave as often and that is only after 2 treatments. Also Sage is amazing. She explains every thing she's about to do so I understand what's going on. She's super professional and made sure I was comfortable the whole time. I'm excited to try some of the other treatments."- C.A. / Office Visit / Aug 11, 2021
"I’ve loved my treatments and experience at Ohana. I have done four sessions of laser hair removal on my full legs and underarms. I’ve noticed a huge difference and rarely have to shave anymore. Their master Aesthetician Sage, is incredibly nice and professional. She made the experience comfortable and stress free. She was willing to answer any questions I had and explained the process as she went so I never felt uncomfortable or surprised . Would 100% recommend coming here."- O.M. / Office Visit / Jul 29, 2021
LASER VEIN REMOVAL faq
Should I get laser vein removal?
Laser vein removal works well for veins of many sizes and types. Varicose veins often respond well to laser vein removal, but sometimes if the vein is large and swollen, surgical options might be recommended. Our team will work with you to determine your treatment method, depending on your specific concerns and needs.
Does the vein go away?
Yes. Laser vein removal uses a focused laser to heat the vein at the target area. Because the targeting is precise, the beam will not damage your skin. As the fluid within the vein heats, the vein will collapse, and in 1 – 2 months, the vein will be reabsorbed by the body.
Where can laser vein removal be used?
Unwanted spider veins are often found on your face, the back portion of your legs and thighs, and near your ankles. Anywhere a spider vein exists, laser vein removal may be helpful to reduce its appearance. Our cutting-edge laser system uses precise targeting so the nearby tissue and skin are protected from heat damage.
Is laser vein removal painful?
Prior to the treatment, your technician may apply a local anesthetic to numb the area. Patients often describe the feeling of a mild tingling or a hot snap against the skin. Our laser system is also equipped with a built-in cooling feature that both reduces discomfort and chills the skin to prevent damage.
How much does laser vein removal cost?
A laser vein removal treatment is priced on the number of veins to be removed and how many sessions are recommended to achieve the desired results. In your consultation, we will evaluate the size and location of protruding veins, and then we will determine the scope of treatment required in order to establish a cost. Ohana Aesthetics and Wellness offers multiple payment options to help make treatment affordable.
