Laser Vein Removal In Santa Barbara


A Popular Non-Invasive Path for Vein Removal and Clear Skin 

Tired of trying to conceal unwanted facial veins with makeup? Are you the only person wearing pants on the beach? Abnormal veins can be embarrassing and painful! Often creeping up noticeably on the face and legs, these unwanted markers of age or hormonal changes can be annoying.

If you suffer from abnormal veins, you’ve likely been directed towards treatments like sclerotherapy or vein surgery. While these traditional treatments may be effective for larger varicose veins, they may not be the best route for smaller veins or patients seeking non-invasive options.

Enter Laser Vein Removal! Unlike larger-scale treatments, laser vein removal can effectively remove small to medium veins, particularly spider and reticular veins, without breaking the skin.

How does Laser Vein Removal work?

At the G Spa, we use an Elite Plus™ Laser to target and eliminate small spider veins.

During the treatment, the laser is directed at the targeted vein while the surrounding skin is protected by a cooling gel. The laser energy is easily absorbed, causing the blood to coagulate and eventually be absorbed fully by the body, removing the appearance of the vein. 

As an extra bonus, collagen production is stimulated by the laser treatment! Over time, collagen works to repair imperfections and rejuvenate your skin in the treated area.  

Best of all, Elite Plus™ technology is not only tried and proven, it’s backed and strongly supported by clinical research.

What can I expect from my Laser Vein Removal in Santa Barbara?

  • Before Laser Vein Removal:

    First, you’ll meet with one of our specialists to assess your skin and determine if laser vein removal is the right treatment for you. Make sure to let them know about any allergies or pre-existing medical conditions. Your provider will explain the procedure and answer any questions.

    In the weeks leading up to your session, avoid tanning or waxing the target area. You may also be advised to avoid medications like blood thinners that can increase the risks of complications. 

  • At your Laser Vein Removal appointment:

    After reviewing the treatment plan, the area will be cleaned and numbed with a local anesthetic. The surrounding skin will be protected by a cooling gel, as the laser is then directed at the targeted vein. 

    While the time varies on the size and number of the veins, you should be finished in less than an hour!

  • After your Laser Vein Removal session:

    As far as aftercare goes, there isn’t much to it! You will be given a handout of instructions such as keeping the area clean and moist and using sunscreen. You can expect minimal downtime and to be able to return to normal activities soon after. Some may experience minor side effects, including bruising, and swelling. However, these side effects are temporary and should subside shortly.

Your Questions About Laser Vein Removal in Santa Barbara, Answered

How long does it take?

At The G Spa, a laser vein removal session typically lasts around 30-60 minutes. Treatment time varies depending on the size and number of veins being treated. 

How many treatments will I need?

While one treatment may do the trick, you may need 1-3 laser sessions to reach your desired results.

Results come quickly but are not immediate. It may take several weeks for treated veins to permanently fade as they are fully absorbed by the body. Treatments are spaced 6-8 weeks apart. 

Is it painful?

Most patients report zero to minimal pain during the laser vein removal treatment. A local anesthetic or cooling device will help numb the area, and you may experience a mild stinging sensation. 

Why do I get abnormal veins?

Abnormal veins are caused by many reasons. Some common factors include: 

  • Aging
  • Hormonal changes (often during pregnancy or menopause)
  • weight gain
  • genetics
  • sun exposure
  • sitting or standing for a long time

Any factors that increase pressure on veins, weaken the vein walls or obstruct the circulation of your blood can lead to abnormal veins. 

No matter the cause, at The G Spa we can help eliminate your unwanted veins and restore your confidence! Dr. Griffin believes that enhancing one’s beauty is more about maintaining one’s sense of self-confidence than vanity, and she and the rest of The G Spa team looks forward to helping you meet or exceed all your skin goals!
