Laser for Spider Veins

The word LASER stands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. Laser differs from IPL in having single wavelength of concentrated coherent light waves absorbed by a specific target (dark pigment, Hemoglobin, water)

Additional Facts

Who is a good candidate for Laser for Spider Veins?

- Overall healthy patients who desire treatment of spider veins, also known as telangiectasia

- Patients with varicose veins can benefit from surgery, sclerotherapy or endovenous LASER (EVLT)

What are Laser for Spider Veins contraindications?

We recommend avoiding the procedure in severe or uncontrolled systemic diseases, connective tissue disease, malignancy, unrealistic expectations, local skin pathology and pregnancy.

Note: A contraindication is a condition or factor that serves as a reason to withhold a certain medical treatment due to the harm that it would cause the patient.

How is this procedure performed?

- Local tumescence anesthesia is infiltrated into the treatment area

- The LASER probe is introduced into the target vein

- LASER produces heat causing collapse and obliteration of the veins which eventually fade away.

- Multiple treatments might be needed.

How long does the effect last?

The effect is expected to be permanent, however new veins can develop.

What should I expect during recovery?

- Recovery is fast after EVLT.

- Some redness, skin sensitivity and swelling can occur during recovery which last for a few hours to a few days.

- Avoid sun exposure and hot showers.

- Skin moisturizers are commonly used after EVLT.

Where is the scar?

There are no incisions or scars. However scarring is an uncommon complication that can occur after the procedure.

Dr. Akkary

I wouldn't go anywhere else!

I have been seeing Dr. Akkary since 2014. The first day I was given his cell number...that has NEVER happened before at any other doctor's office. He is genuine and compassionate and really only wants to help you succeed. I have called him so many times and he has ALWAYS answered my questions. He has performed 2 surgeries on me and I wouldn't go anywhere else! I trust him and his staff completely. They will listen to all of your concerns and explain everything completely!

Great for anything in his speciality

If you are looking for a doctor who will listen to you and explain what & why he’s going to do something, you have found him. He has the added benefit of a wonderful bedside manner minus the arrogance found in doctors ( just because they are doctors, you have met a few if you’re reading this I’m sure). In all he’s a wonderful person who if you’re lucky enough to find him, give him a call. You will have an amazing doctor who is there for you without dodging your call’s no matter how silly you think the question or thought may be ( this isn’t a paid ad I promise, you have his cellphone number incase of anything no matter the time. Sorry, but I’ve never been able to reach a doctor 24-7 without going through a answering service and even then how many times do you get to talk to them? Not many from my experience and I’ve seen more doctors than I care to think about.) he’s always able to answer it or calm your pre surgery nerves. He’s great if you’re looking for anything in his specialty and if I could, he’d be my doctor for everything, but he’s only one person so I will settle for his specific fields.

My acid reflux and GERD was curable

I never imagined that my acid reflux and GERD was curable. I truly never imagined the life changing results that something called a Nissan Fundoplication would bring to my life thanks to the skilled hands of Dr. Ehab Akkary! Thank you Doc!
