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

"My incisions look beautiful as do my new natural breasts! - Dr. Black performed my breast ex-plant surgery. I cannot say enough good things about her & her staff & the surgery center where she performs her surgeries. ALL TOP NOTCH! I went in because my implants were hard & encapsulated. I was having some breast pain & had rashes that would come & go in my breast & abdomen area. I had a few other symptoms but really wasn't sure if they were related to my implants. My main issue was the extreme hardness & pain. She thoroughly examined me & decided I needed both capsules removed & sent to pathology for review after removal. I was on board with this decision & was more than confident she would do the best job out of any other surgeons I had looked into. After ex-plant & full capsulectomy my pathology came back with a rare cancer found in the capsule that surrounded one of my implants. Before my follow up appt. Dr. Black had contacted a physician at MD Anderson who is an expert in the type of cancer I was diagnosed with. She put me in touch with him & I went to see him 2 weeks later. I am happy to report I am cancer free but if it were not for Dr. Black removing the entire capsule I don't know what my outcome would have been. She did such an amazing job meticulously ensuring everything was removed. I am forever grateful for her skills & I highly recommend her as a surgeon. My incisions look beautiful as do my new natural breasts! Thank you so much for taking such good care of me!!!"- V. / RealSelf / Feb 04, 2023

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.
