About Laser Vein Removal
Typically found on the face and legs, spider veins are small, branching blood vessels that are visible through the skin. Caused by many factors like age and genetics, spider veins can be red, blue, and purple, which makes them difficult to hide. Since these veins usually get worse over time and leads to stronger visibility, it's smart to seek treatment when they first appear. To minimize the look of veins on the face and body, Elevate Medical Spa offers noninvasive laser vein removal sessions for Dallas, TX women and men. In your private consultation, the Elevate team, lead by board-certified plastic surgeons Drs. Thornwell Parker and Kevin Hanz, will develop a personalized plan based on your unique needs and goals for your laser vein treatment. Elevate is dedicated to using the newest technology in cosmetic treatments, which is why they use the Sciton ClearScan YAG for laser vein removal.

"This review is well overdue, but now you can be certain I am certain of my results! My skin wasn't horrid, but as it turns out, it needed work. I would get the usual lady cycle breakouts (even at 31) and the occasional pimple here and there. It would take 2-3 weeks to clear up. Who has time for that?! And then I was introduced to Felicia. Felicia put me on a ZO regimen in July. It took about a month for my skin texture to change. I did not even know that was a thing! My skin texture was smoother, brighter, and tighter! The compliments were rolling in!Fast forward to 6-7 months in, and if I may be self indulgent, am in love with my face. I always secretly wanted to be able to walk out of the house with no makeup (always sunscreen!) and look fantastic. With Felicia's guidance, I have been able to achieve that goal. My makeup consists of a tube of mascara, as I am confident enough not to hide behind foundation, CC cream, etc. It wasn't an overnight change, there are days where my face is itchy, there have been series of days of constant peeling and redness. However, I stuck with it, Felicia was a constant support, and I am so thankful I did."- R.B. / Yelp / Mar 13, 2018
"One of the most talented plastic surgeons. Dr Hanz is truly a miracle worker. Cosmetic surgery skills are amazing. He recently performed a very difficult hand surgery for my father in law. Amazing results. Highly recommend."- S.L. / Facebook / Feb 22, 2018
"Always a great result - I've received Botox treatments from Dr. Hanz and it always looks natural and I receive many compliments. Very happy with my care... Im contemplating other treatments and I wouldn't go anywhere else. His bedside manner is very pleasant as well.."- C. / RealSelf / Feb 01, 2018
"Breast Implant Removal and Liposuction - The staff at Elevate was amazing from scheduling my consultation down to the actual procedure. I had two separate procedures performed by Dr. Hanz the first one being a breast implant removal and the second one was liposuction. Dr. Hanz and his staff were very helpful in answering all of my questions and concerns. My continued care after the procedures has been substantial as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Hanz and his staff for any of your cosmetic needs."- H. / RealSelf / Jan 30, 2018
Laser vein removal treatments at Elevate Medical Spa can help the visibility of small- to medium-sized blood vessels that are on the face and body. Popularly known as spider veins, these blood vessels are not usually a medical problem but they are considered unwanted. Many people avoid certain clothing (like shorts and swimsuits) or use a large amount of cosmetics to try to mask these veins. Laser vein reduction with Sciton ClearScan is great for patients who are in good overall health, do not have a history of blood clots, and are not pregnant.
Laser vein reduction treatments are done in our Dallas, TX office as an outpatient procedure in about 20 – 40 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas treated. During your procedure, you will lay comfortably in a private treatment room as the area being treated is prepared. If requested, a topical anesthetic can be applied before your session to minimize any potential discomfort. The Sciton ClearScan laser is passed over the area so the energy can target the veins through a series of pulses that don't affect the skin. The blood vessel takes in the laser energy, which collapses the wall of the vessel. You will be able to leave our office as soon as you feel comfortable to resume your normal day.
What to Expect
Following your laser vein removal treatment, you may have bruising, swelling, and redness, but these symptoms should disappear in about 7 – 10 days. For quicker healing, support or compression garments can be worn to increase blood circulation. It's important to avoid prolonged sun exposure and you should apply sunscreen frequently to areas that have been treated. Several patients see visible improvements quickly but the timing of results will vary in each patient. At your initial consultation with Dr. Parker or Dr. Hanz, reasonable expectations will be discussed along with recommendations on how many sessions that may be needed to reach your best results. Other spider veins will probably appear over time, so touch-up sessions may be needed every few years.
