What is Laser Vein Removal?
Commonly found on the legs and face, spider veins are small blood vessels that branch and become visible underneath the skin. Caused by age, genetics, and other factors, spider veins can look red, purple, and blue, which makes them difficult to hide. Since spider veins typically progress over time and become more visible, we recommend seeking treatment when you first notice signs. To decrease the visibility of blood vessels on the body and face, Nirvana Med Spa offers Alma Harmony XL Pro laser vein removal treatments to Little Rock, AR residents. In your initial consultation, we will develop a customized plan to meet your unique needs and goals for your laser vein treatment.

What are the benefits of laser vein removal?
Spider veins are often a cosmetic concern, as they can be unsightly and make you feel self-conscious. Patients at Nirvana Med Spa choose laser vein removal because they want to reduce discolored veins and improve the appearance of their skin. Laser treatment with the Alma Harmony XL PRO is one of the top treatments for spider veins because it is minimally invasive and can produce excellent results. Our team is proud to offer cutting-edge tools and technologies as well as the best possible care.
is laser vein removal right for me?
Nonsurgical vein removal treatments at Nirvana Med Spa can help with small- or mid-sized veins that appear on the body and face. Commonly known as spider veins, these blood vessels are not usually a medical problem, but they can cause you to feel embarrassed. Many men and women avoid certain clothing (such as swimsuits and shorts) or use cosmetics to try and conceal spider veins. Laser vein removal treatments are great for people who maintain good health, don't have a history of blood clots, and are not pregnant.
how is Laser Vein Removal performed?
Taking around 20 – 40 minutes to complete, we perform laser vein removal appointments in a private procedure room. The procedure time is based on the size and number of treatment areas. At the beginning of your appointment, we will clean your skin and if needed, we can apply a topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort. Once your skin is numb, we pass the laser across the skin so the energy reduces the appearance of veins. The device emits targeted energy that does not affect the nearby skin. The blood vessel soaks in the laser energy, which closes the vessel wall. As soon as you feel comfortable, you can leave and resume your daily routine.
what is the recovery time after laser vein removal?
After your treatment, you may have redness, swelling, and bruising, but these symptoms should subside within 7 – 10 days. For optimal healing, you can wear compression or support garments to encourage blood circulation. We highly recommend avoiding extended sun exposure and using sunscreen on treatment areas. Some patients may see improvements immediately, but the timing of results will vary for each patient. During your initial consultation, we will discuss your cosmetic goals and create a treatment plan that outlines the number of sessions needed to help you attain your desired results. New spider veins will likely form over time so you may need follow-up treatments every few years.
Laser Vein Removal FAQ
How much does laser vein removal cost?
Laser vein removal is a treatment that is priced based on how many veins are being treated and how many sessions are suggested to attain the desired results. During your consultation, we will assess your veins, the size and where they are located, and develop your custom treatment plan to estimate your cost. Nirvana Med Spa offers several payment options, and we frequently offer specials on treatments like laser vein removal.
Should I get laser vein removal or sclerotherapy?
Treatment with laser vein removal may help veins of all types and sizes. Depending on your veins, laser vein removal may work better than others, depending on your goals. Laser vein therapy works great for some veins; however, if you have certain types of spider veins, you might prefer sclerotherapy, which uses a solution that is injected directly into the vein. Varicose veins often respond well to laser treatment, but if the vein is larger, surgery might be recommended. We will work with you to determine your treatment method depending on your unique needs and goals.
Does the vein go away?
A laser vein treatment will address the vein with a focused beam of energy that heats the vein and then destroys it. The laser system is very precise and focuses on the target area — so it won't damage the nearby skin. When the vein collapses, it will take around 4 – 6 weeks for the vein to be reabsorbed and fade away.
Where can laser vein removal be used?
Unwanted spider veins may be found on your face, upper thighs, back of the legs, and around your ankles. Anywhere a spider vein exists, laser vein removal may be a good treatment option. Our advanced laser system uses precision when treating the specific vein — so the surrounding skin and tissue are unaffected.
Is laser vein removal painful?
Before the procedure, we may put on an ointment or local anesthetic to numb the area. Some patients report feeling a slight snap or tingling sensation when the laser focuses on the vein. Most lasers, including ours, are equipped with a built-in feature that produces a cooling effect. This minimizes discomfort while also preventing the laser from becoming too hot, which may result in a burn or additional damage to the area.
