The Non-Invasive Solution to Vascular Lesions

Laser vein treatment is a non-invasive solution for vascular lesions like spider veins, birthmarks, and hemangiomas. The treatment uses a focused laser beam to target the pigment in the blood vessel, which causes the vessel to break down and fade over time. Laser vein treatment is safe and effective, with minimal downtime and discomfort. It’s a popular choice for those looking to improve the appearance of their skin without undergoing invasive surgery.

Laser Vein Treatment Corrects:

  • Spider veins: small, visible veins that appear on the skin’s surface
  • Varicose veins: larger, bulging veins that cause discomfort and swelling
  • Hemangiomas: a type of birthmark caused by a collection of blood vessels
  • Port wine stains: a type of birthmark that appears as a red or purple patch on the skin
  • Cherry angiomas: small, bright red spots caused by the proliferation of blood vessels
  • Rosacea: a skin condition that causes redness and visible blood vessels on the face
  • Angiomas: benign tumors made up of blood vessels
  • Venous lakes: blue or purple, soft, and slightly raised lesions on the lips or ears

The Science Behind Laser Vein Treatment

The science behind laser vein treatment lies in the selective absorption of laser energy by the pigment in the blood vessels. The laser emits a focused beam of light absorbed by the hemoglobin in the blood vessels, causing them to heat up and collapse. The body’s natural healing processes then remove the damaged vessels over time. The Motus AZ+ device used at Willow Medical Aesthetics delivers the laser energy in short pulses, allowing for more precise targeting of the affected vessels.

Advantages of Laser Vein Treatment:

  • Non-invasive treatment that requires no incisions or injections
  • Minimal discomfort during and after the procedure
  • Short treatment time, usually 30 minutes or less
  • Little to no downtime, allowing patients to resume normal activities immediately
  • Highly effective in treating a wide range of vascular lesions
  • Safe and FDA-approved for use on various skin types
  • Minimal risk of scarring or infection
  • Long-lasting results with minimal maintenance required

Candidates for Laser Vein Treatment:

  • Have visible spider veins, varicose veins, hemangiomas, or other vascular lesions
  • Want to improve the appearance of their skin without invasive surgery
  • Are in good overall health
  • Do not have medical conditions that may interfere with the treatment
  • Do not have any skin infections or lesions in the treatment area

Your Laser Vein Treatment Session

At Willow Medical Aesthetics, we make your laser vein treatment session as comfortable as possible. During the session, you’ll be positioned comfortably, and a cooling gel may be applied to the treatment area to minimize discomfort.

Your provider will use the Motus AZ+ device to deliver the laser energy to the affected vessels. The length of the treatment will depend on the size and number of the veins being treated, but most sessions are completed in 30 minutes.

Side Effects

Although laser vein treatment is generally safe and well-tolerated, some patients may experience mild side effects such as redness, swelling, or bruising at the treatment site. These effects usually resolve within a few days to a week. Rarely, more severe side effects such as blistering, scarring, or changes in skin pigmentation may occur.


Laser vein treatment requires little to no downtime, and most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the session. However, your healthcare provider may recommend avoiding strenuous exercise, hot baths or showers, and direct sunlight exposure for a short period following treatment to minimize the risk of side effects.


Patients may notice an immediate reduction in the appearance of treated veins after the laser vein treatment session. However, it may take several weeks or months for the body to completely eliminate the treated vessels. The final results of the treatment can usually be seen within 4 to 6 weeks.


The longevity of laser vein treatment results depends on several factors, including the size and location of the treated veins, the patient’s overall health, and lifestyle habits. Treated veins are permanently eliminated, but new veins may form over time.
