What is Laser Vein Removal?
To reduce the visibility of spider veins on the body and face, Xage Medical Spa performs noninvasive laser vein removal for Provo, UT women and men. In your private consultation, board-certified physician Dr. Stuart B. Porter will suggest a personalized plan to meet your aesthetic goals with laser vein treatment. With the Alma™ Harmony XL laser, your veins can disappear without painful surgery or rounds of injections.
Typically found on the face and upper thighs, spider veins are small, branching blood vessels that are visible through the skin. Caused by many factors like genetics and age, spider veins can be red, blue, and purple, which makes them hard to hide. Since spider veins typically get worse over the years and lead to stronger visibility, it's important to seek removal at the first signs. To start the process, please give us a call or schedule an appointment online to learn more about our Alma™ Harmony XL laser vein removal at Xage Medical Spa.

"I just finished my 3rd and last Femilift treatment a week and half ago. For all you women that have a weakening bladder, I STONGLY recommend this treatment. I had a hysterectomy, including removal of my cervix about 12 years ago. Since I no longer have those parts to help keep things in their place, I gradually noticed several changes. I was that woman that couldn’t multitask with a sneeze, cough, laugh or even clear my throat while walking. I am proud to report that this is no longer a problem. Dr. Porter recommended this procedure and now here I am, multitasking like a pro. I noticed some improvement a couple weeks after the first treatment, the most improvement after the second treatment and the last treatment just sealed the deal, literally. An unexpected outcome is one I am super happy about. I have been plagued with recurring bladder infections for years. I haven’t had a bladder infection since the first treatment 3 months ago. Though I am purely speculating, I feel this is directly related to the Femilift treatments. It makes sense. Before the treatments, I had a weak sense of when my bladder was full, therefore my bladder would be full for awhile before I would get the intense urge. After several times, my bladder would just be irritated and I would end up with an infection. I lived on AZO and cranberry to try and manage some comfort. Now, my pelvic floor is stronger and I can can sense my full bladder sooner, which I now visit the restroom way more often. At first this was annoying, but now that I realize I am sensing things like I should and I haven’t had anymore irritation or infections, I’ll take it. Now ladies, and partners of those ladies considering Femilift, let’s talk sex. Since this treatment involves a laser inserted into the vagina, and it strengthens and tightens the urethra, it makes sense that it tightens the vagina as well. Big bonus. Not only have I noticed tightening, but more lubrication and sensitivity (the good kind, not the painful kind). If I just scared you away because I mentioned something being inserted into your vagina and then a laser zapping away, bear with me. 1. The laser has a comfortable width. 2. It has a sheath cover that is only yours and kept on site so you don’t have to remember to bring it with you. 3. The only time you feel any discomfort is when the they are treating the opening of the vagina since there are many more nerve endings there. For me this felt like an intense moment during a bladder infection, but the sensation immediately ceased when the treatment was over. 4. The entirety of each treatment only takes about 10 minutes. The consult and prep takes more time than the actual treatment. Finally, let’s talk about the cost. This isn’t covered by insurance, but when compared to the downtime, recovery and risk of infection of surgery, this is way worth it. Xage Medical spa was offering a promotion at the time of my consultation, which I was able to get a discount. But, I would have paid full price. The staff was very welcoming, knowledgeable and accommodating. They know what they are doing and how to provide a great experience and results."- T.H. / Google / Dec 30, 2019

Am I an ideal patient for laser vein treatments?
Laser vein removal treatments at Xage Medical Spa may improve the appearance of small-to-medium-sized veins that are on the body and face. Frequently called spider veins, these blood vessels are typically not a medical issue but they are deemed a cosmetic problem. In our experience, we see patients with spider veins because they tend to avoid certain clothing (like swimsuits and shorts) or use heavy cosmetics to try to cover up facial veins. Laser vein treatments are great for people who have overall good health, do not have blood clots, and are not pregnant.
When you have a consultation with Dr. Porter, realistic expectations will be reviewed along with his recommendations on the number of sessions needed to achieve your best results.
Our Laser Vein Removal Technique
Laser vein treatments are performed by our team as an outpatient procedure in about 20 – 40 minutes, which is dependent on the number of areas to cover. For your procedure, you will be positioned comfortably in a private room with the Alma Harmony XL laser. Then, the affected area will be cleaned and prepared for the laser session. At your request, a topical numbing cream may be used before your session to minimize any potential discomfort. The laser handpiece will be passed over the area to target the veins with a series of pulses without affecting the rest of your skin. The blood vessel will take in the laser energy, which will collapse the wall of the vessel. You will be allowed to leave right after the treatment to resume your regular routine.
What to Expect with Laser Vein Removal
After your laser vein removal session, you may have swelling, redness, and bruising, but these symptoms should disappear in around 7 – 10 days. For faster healing, compression garments may be worn to increase your blood circulation. It's necessary to avoid prolonged exposure to UV rays, and you are encouraged to use sunscreen on your treated skin. Results will be different for each laser vein removal patient. New spider veins will likely form in the future, and additional treatments may be performed when this happens. Laser vein removal with the Alma Harmony XL treatment does not prevent new veins from appearing in the future.
