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.

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
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.
