What Is Vein and Lesion Treatment?
Spider veins are little, branching blood vessels that are visible underneath the skin. Caused by many factors, like genetics and age, these veins can be red, blue, or purple, making them difficult to hide on ankles, lower legs, or thighs. Lesions on hands and feet may also be a skin issue. To minimize the appearance of spider veins on the body and face or to remove unsightly lesions, Oak Dermatology performs different nonsurgical treatments for vein and lesion removal, including sclerotherapy, laser treatment with the Harmony XL PRO, and Cutera XL-V. In your initial consultation, our staff in Naperville, Itasca, and Joliet, IL can suggest a personalized plan based on your unique needs and goals for your vein or lesion treatment.

What to Expect from Vein and Lesion Treatment
Vein and lesion treatment can help veins of all kinds and proportions. Depending on your needs, some treatments might work better than others, depending on what is being treated. Laser treatments might work great for certain veins, but some patients might be better candidates for sclerotherapy, which places a glycerin solution or the FDA-approved Asclera by Merz directly into the vein to collapse it. Before treatment, however, we typically recommend an ultrasound evaluation to ensure that sclerotherapy is the best treatment for our patients.
Using the Harmony XL PRO's narrow beam of light stimulates the spider vein and then eliminates it. The laser system is very meticulous and focuses on only the target vein so it will not harm nearby healthy skin tissue. Once the vein has collapsed, it takes around 1 – 2 months for the vein to be flushed out of the body and disappear.
If visible veins are situated on your face, upper thighs, back of the legs, or around your ankles, laser vein therapy might be a good treatment technique because of its precision in targeting the affected tissue and avoiding the healthy skin around the veins.
Prior to your treatment, our staff often puts on an anesthetic cream to help you stay comfortable. But our laser systems have a built-in feature that generates a cooling sensation to decrease any pain, if any, felt during the procedure.

Veins & Vascular Lesions FAQs
Should I get laser vein removal or sclerotherapy?
A treatment with laser vein removal could target veins of all forms and sizes. Depending on your concerns, a laser treatment might be better than others according to your goals. Laser vein treatments can work great for some veins, but some patients may prefer sclerotherapy, which injects a sclerosing liquid right into the vein to collapse it. Larger veins such as varicose veins frequently work well with laser-based vein therapy, but if the vein is large and bulging, a surgical procedure might be necessary. Our team will help you select your best treatment choice according to your individual concerns and goals.
Does the vein go away?
Laser-based vein removal will focus on the vein by emitting a focused beam of energy that heats up the vein and then eradicates it. The technology is extremely meticulous and focuses on just on the target area, so it won't affect the surrounding areas of skin. After the vein has collapsed, it will take around 1 – 2 months for it to be flushed out of your system and fade away.
Can I get sclerotherapy on my hands and face?
Sclerotherapy can improve the appearance of spider veins, vascular blemishes, diseased veins, and varicose veins on your hands and face. When you come for your private consultation, Dr. Al-Hadidi will investigate your troublesome regions of and determine if sclerotherapy can be applied to safely target the vein. If she recognizes that sclerotherapy would not be a good or safe option, she will discuss your options, such as laser vein removal.
