Spider veins are dilated capillaries that appear on the skin and can appear red, blue, and purple in color. Since they are commonly found on the face, many patients seek treatment to diminish their appearance for cosmetic reasons. Double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Vu Ho, uses laser vein removal with Elite MPX to safely and effectively remove facial spider veins. Facial spider veins are most commonly treated using the laser to deliver pulses of laser light which cause the veins to collapse. Once the veins are collapsed, the patient can expect clearer, vein-free skin for an enhanced look.

"Smart Lipo of the Neck/chin - When Kybella didn't work, I turned to Dr. Ho for Smart Lipo of the chin/neck area. If I had the choice, I would have had the surgery again in a heartbeat. Recovery was comfortable and I was up and moving in no time! I resumed work a couple of days later! I'm so thrilled with my results thus far!!!!!"- J. / RealSelf / May 02, 2017
"Absolutely amazing experience! Everyone is professional, caring, and very welcoming! - Incredibly awesome! Dr. Ho was more than comforting, reassuring and professional. I came to Dr. Ho with concerns primarily to talk to him about "wrinkles" on my chin area and underneath my eyes. I had received two other consultations and both doctors recommended surgical procedures. Dr. Ho immediately said that I did not need that and suggested C02 laser treatment on my entire face and PRP..."- S. / RealSelf / Apr 29, 2017

During a consultation, a medical professional will help determine if laser vein removal is right for you in order to achieve your goals. The ideal candidates for laser vein removal:
- Have small spider veins on the face
- Desire a noninvasive procedure
- Desire long-lasting results
- Wish to improve appearance
What to Expect
Before treatment, the skin will be properly cleaned and prepped. The doctor will place the Elite MPX laser on the surface of the skin to target the unwanted spider veins. The heat from the laser damages the vein, which leads to the formation of scar tissue. This scar tissue will cause the vein to close and once it closes, its blood source is lost. Consequently, the vein will die. Since this is an in-office procedure, patients will be able to resume normal activities after treatment.
Since laser treatment is noninvasive, it can take 1 – 2 years before the vein completely disappears from sight. Multiple treatments are needed for full results. During a consultation, your doctor will determine the number of sessions you will need. Sessions are normally spaced out 6 – 12 weeks apart to allow the skin to heal.
