Treatment Options

Your recommended treatment will be determined by Dr. Bonakdar after a thorough evaluation. She may recommend 1 or more of the treatments below depending on the type of vein being treated. For skin that is smooth as well as clear, you may want to consider laser hair removal.
  • Sclerotherapy Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that is best for improving the look of spider veins on the legs. During treatment, a special solution is injected into the vein that irritates the vascular lining and causes the vein to deteriorate. Blood is then redirected through healthier veins and the treated vein is harmlessly absorbed by the body. Side effects are relatively minor and can include localized bruising, itching and redness. Dr. Bonakdar will recommend the appropriate number of treatments for best results.
  • M22 Nd:YAG Laser Dr. Bonakdar recommends laser vein removal for Newport Beach and Orange County patients with spider veins on legs that are too small to treat with Sclerotherapy. The Nd:YAG laser is also effective for broken capillaries and cherry angiomas on the face and body. This procedure uses laser energy to selectively heat blood vessels and stimulate blood coagulation. In turn, the blood vessel walls collapse, resulting in destruction of the vein. Multiple sessions can produce dramatic and sustained results.
  • Radiosurgery Radiosurgery removes spider veins and broken capillaries similarly to the Nd:YAG laser except it uses radio-frequency energy rather than laser energy to heat and seal blood vessels. Very small electric currents are transmitted to the blood vessels to promote blood coagulation and destroy unwanted veins.

Knowing What to Expect

Knowing What to Expect

During laser vein treatment, no anesthesia is required prior to treatment.* Instead, topical icing is used during the procedure to cool the vessel prior to each treatment pulse.* Some of the vessels seal and disappear immediately, while others become bruised and take several weeks to heal.* Treatments are repeated 4 – 6 weeks apart until your desired reduction is achieved.*

Sclerotherapy can also be performed without anesthesia and usually takes under an hour, depending on the size and number of veins treated.* The veins are first marked and then a thin needle is used to administer the sclerosing solution into the appropriate location. Compression stockings may be recommended to help collapse the veins after treatment. Usually, 3 – 5 sessions produce noticeable and long-lasting results.*

Dr. Bonakdar specializes in cosmetic laser rejuvenation and uses laser technology for a variety of purposes. For patients who want legs that are smooth as well as free of spider veins, she may suggest laser hair removal or VASER® Shape cellulite treatment.* For firmer skin that looks youthful, Dr. Bonakdar recommends Fraxel®.
