Vein Therapy

Cutera Excel V
This laser treatment safely and effectively treats both tiny red superficial face and body veins as well as the larger, deeper blue, reticular veins. Spider veins are dilated blood vessels on the skin's surface. They appear red or blue and may be connected in a web or branched pattern. Laser light is absorbed by the spider veins, causing the vessels to heat and in turn causing the blood in the vessels to collapse. We use a long-pulsed Nd:YAG laser that is an award-winner among leg veins. It provides continuous contact cooling to enhance your comfort. Two or three treatments, spaced 8 weeks apart, may be required for best results.

Sclerotherapy
Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to eliminate spider veins. It involves an injection of a solution directly into the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to collapse and stick together and the blood to clot. In most cases, the solution is injected through a very fine needle directly into the vein. At this point, you may experience mild discomfort and cramping for one-to-two minutes, especially when larger veins are injected.

Prior to sclerotherapy, you will have an initial consultation with a licensed expert who will decide if you're a good candidate for the procedure.

FAQ

What type of laser is Excel V?
The Excel V Laser System uses a high power green laser to target abnormal blood vessels and pigment in the skin. As these vessels or pigment cells are targeted, the skin is returned to a more natural color and tone.
Does Excel V laser hurt?
Patients describe the treatment as feeling like a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered. To minimize discomfort, the Excel V uses a proprietary cooling mechanism. Following the treatment, pain is minimal to non-existent.
How long does Excel V last?
Over time, the vessels will no longer be visible. Several treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired result. Pigment lesions on the face, chest, and hands, respond in a similar manner. They darken and flake off in 7-14 days depending on the location treated.

  • Megan Pritchard
    I've visited St Louis Skin Solutions a number of times for various services including laser for scars, visible facial capillaries, botox and fillers. Most of these were my first time receiving the treatment so needless to say, I was nervous. They always do an excellent job and the injections have left me with zero bruising! I will continue to come back, and all the way from the deep urban city limits. Worth it.

    Dr. Miller and her entire team are wonderful. I’ve been thrilled with every treatment I’ve had, as well as the skincare products I now use at home. Because I’ve lost a lot of weight, I’ve been especially concerned about loose skin, and they’ve been able to help address this - and do so much more! I feel more confident than ever in my appearance.
