Vascular Rejuvenation

Laser Vein Treatment in St. Cloud

Veins that appear on the face and legs can be removed to provide you with clearer, dramatically younger-looking skin. Our laser vein treatment services at Midsota Med Spa can help treat fine, visible veins and redness without any surgery or downtime.

Is vascular rejuvenation for me?

Laser vascular rejuvenation is effective for veins that are up to 3mm thick. This treatment is great for reducing the appearance of facial veins and redness, leg veins (spider veins), angiomas, and similar conditions. However, larger veins may require a more invasive procedure to fully treat.

What are the benefits of vascular rejuvenation?

Vascular rejuvenation is an effective option for vein treatment that does not require any surgery and allows the patient to get back to their normal routine immediately after treatment.

How is vascular rejuvenation performed?

Your Licensed Aesthetician will treat your problem veins using targeted laser energy. This treatment works to shut off the problem vein so that it is naturally and safely absorbed by your body. Your surrounding skin and tissue are not harmed during the procedure.

How long does vascular rejuvenation take?

Your laser vein treatment procedure will take on average 15-30 minutes. Treatment times will vary depending on the area being treated.

How long is vascular rejuvenation recovery?

There is little to no downtime following a laser vein treatment. You may experience some sensitivity or redness similar to that of a mild sunburn. It is important to keep your skin protected from the sun during the initial days following your treatment.

When will I notice the results of my vascular rejuvenation?

Depending on the size of the treated vein, you may notice subtle improvements right away. The treated vein will be naturally absorbed by your body and disappear from the surface of your skin. Complete treatment of vascular lesions may require up to three treatment sessions.

Is laser hair removal for me?

Laser hair removal can be an effective procedure for almost anyone looking for a long-term solution to unwanted hair on his or her face or body. The hair being treated must have some color to it for effective growth reduction–blonde and gray hairs cannot be treated.

What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

Following your laser hair removal treatment, you will not have to worry about shaving or waxing unwanted hair for quite some time. The results are meant to be long-lasting and can be maintained with small touch-up treatments (*).

How is laser hair removal performed?

You will need to shave the area to be treated prior to each laser hair removal session. Focused laser energy will then be delivered to the individual hair follicles in order to prevent regrowth. No anesthesia is required for laser hair removal and many patients liken the sensation during treatment to small snaps from a rubber band.

How long does laser hair removal take?

The length of your laser hair removal session will depend on the size of the area being treated. Most sessions last no longer than 30-45 minutes and you can get back to your normal routine immediately after.

How long is laser hair removal recovery?

There is no downtime or recovery after a laser hair removal session. Your skin may be red and somewhat sensitive similar to a mild sunburn, but you should have no problem resuming your day as normal. If you are planning a trip to the beach, we recommend scheduling your sessions a couple weeks in advance as unnecessary sun exposure is strongly advised against following a laser hair removal session (*).

How long will my laser hair removal results last?

Laser hair removal is designed to provide you with extremely long-lasting results that can be maintained with smaller touch-up sessions every 6-12 months. We recommend an initial series of 5-8 treatments for the best laser hair removal results (*).
