About Laser Vein Removal
We want to help you get rid of your unsightly spider veins. These small, twisted blood vessels seen through the surface of the skin on the face or legs, affect many men and women in the United States. Dr. Elliott Black and Dr. Summer Black, our board-certified plastic surgeons, can remove these vessels with one of our laser modalities. Left untreated, spider veins will grow in number and branch out over the skin. At Dr. Black Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery, we use the Varilite 532/940 system for facial veins, and the long pulsed nd:YAG 1064 for the legs and other parts of the body. Laser treatments on spider veins are safe and effective. Call and schedule an appointment to learn more about the number of sessions you may need for optimal results. This innovative laser treatment will not prevent future spider veins, but will do an amazing job at decreasing or eliminating the visible ones already on your skin. We are taking appointments in our Metairie, LA office. Contact our team today.
"I've been a patient of Dr Summer Blacks for about 4 years and I would never go anywhere else. I am ALWAYS ecstatic with her work and have had Botox and Restylane filler in my cheeks and lips. Dr Black is not only a total perfectionist but she becomes a friend you feel comfortable confiding in and sharing your life with. I would recommend Dr Black to my own mother....and in fact I did! Now we are both her patients who regularly visit her for all our anti-aging facial perfecting cosmetic work."- A.R. / Google / Feb 06, 2017
"I won’t go to anyone else - Dr. Black is simply the best! I go to her for Botox and filler. She actually listens to me so that together we come up with a course of action that delivers beautiful results. She never leaves you with an unnatural over-blown look."- M. / RealSelf / Feb 09, 2018
"Dr. Elliott Black has years of experience and it shows in his results! - Dr. Elliott Black did my breast implants years ago. They are so natural that even my Ob-gyn couldn’t tell they were implants. I’ve also gone to Dr. Elliott Black for laser treatments and to have my eyelids done. I couldn’t be happier with the results!"- M. / RealSelf / Feb 09, 2018
"Love Dr Summer Black. I had an excellent experience. Very happy with my results. Would recommend Dr Black to all my family and friends!!!"- L.S. / Google / Jan 22, 2018
"Tummy Tuck - Fluer De Lis Cut - After Massive Weight Loss - I absolutely love Dr. Black! She treats you like a friend more than a patient. She is clearly very skilled. Her work is beautiful. She does not try to get you to do any more surgery than what you absolutely need. I have two other friends that have had their tummy tucks after massive weight loss with Dr. Black and they love her, as well. I highly recommend Dr. Summer Black! She performed my fleur de lis tummy tuck in 2013 and my brachioplasty in 2017. She is an amazing surgeon that does beautiful work. I am thrilled with the placement of my incisions on my arms. What I really love about Dr. Black is that she treats you like a friend and not just a patient. She gave me her cell phone number, in case I had any issues. She personally called to check on me when I was home. She made the experiences as pleasant and painless as possible. I can't say enough about her as a surgeon and a person!"- T. / RealSelf / Dec 01, 2017
Do I Qualify?
Patients, who are good candidates for laser vein removal, have visible small veins on their face and body. Patients should be in good general health before the procedure and should tell their doctor if they have a history of blood clots or may be pregnant.
What to Expect
Before the treatment begins, our aesthetic technician will cover the patient’s eyes with protective eyewear. Once the patient is ready, the laser hand piece will pass over the areas of the face and body that have visible blood vessels. The laser applies multiple wavelengths of light that can are absorbed by the blood vessel, which destroy the spider vein for a smoother appearance to the skin.
Laser vein treatment may cause some temporary redness, bruising, and blistering to the treated skin, but this should disappear in 2 weeks – 2 months. Patients are advised to rest and avoid strenuous activity after their treatment, and patients should cover the treated areas or use other protection from any sun exposure. For best results, patients may need multiple treatments over the course of several months. For a faster recovery, patients may consider wearing support stockings to help promote better blood circulation.
