Spider veins are dilated capillaries that appear on the skin and can appear red, blue, and purple in color. Since they are commonly found on the face, many patients seek treatment to diminish their appearance for cosmetic reasons. Board-certified facial surgeon Dr. Vu Ho use laser vein removal with Elite MPX to safely and effectively remove facial spider veins. Facial spider veins are most commonly treated using the laser to deliver pulses of laser light that cause the veins to collapse. Once the veins are collapsed, the patient can expect clearer, vein-free skin for an enhanced look. Contact Beyond Beautiful today to set up a consultation at our facility in Plano, TX.

"My dark circles are not even noticeable - I have been going to Dr Ho for almost a year now and I am so pleased with my results !! I have done the Ez gel and exosome procedures for my dark circles to opt for a more natural approach before going into fillers and I have seen a drastic improvement ! My dark circles are not even noticeable. I am now in my late twenties and have been seeing a lot of changes in my face, one of which is dark circles. I was extremely insecure about them, all my life I never wore make up and I found I couldn’t leave the house without it. Thanks to Dr Ho I can confidently go out without make up. I am very selective and critical when it comes to procedures and my face. Dr Ho is someone I can trust !!! Thank you Dr Ho !"- E. / RealSelf / Aug 10, 2023
During a consultation, a medical professional will help determine if laser vein removal is right for you in order to achieve your goals. The ideal candidates for laser vein removal:
- Have small spider veins on the face
- Desire a noninvasive procedure
- Desire long-lasting results
- Wish to improve appearance
What to Expect
Before treatment, the skin will be properly cleaned and prepped. The doctor will place the Elite MPX laser on the surface of the skin to target the unwanted spider veins. The heat from the laser damages the vein, which leads to the formation of scar tissue. This scar tissue will cause the vein to close, and once it closes, its blood source is lost. Consequently, the vein will die. Since this is an in-office procedure, patients will be able to resume normal activities after treatment.
Since laser treatment is noninvasive, it can take 1 – 2 years before the vein completely disappears from sight. Multiple treatments are needed for full results. During a consultation, your doctor will determine the number of sessions you will need. Sessions are normally spaced out 6 – 12 weeks apart to allow the skin to heal.
