About Vein Removal
Typically found on the face and legs, spider veins are small, branching blood vessels that are visible through the skin. Caused by many factors, like age and genetics, spider veins can be blue, purple, and red, which makes them difficult to hide. Since these veins usually get worse over time and lead to stronger visibility, it's smart to seek treatment when they first appear. To minimize the look of veins on the face and body, Thaker Cosmetic and Wellness offers several vein removal options for Las Vegas, NV women and men. During your private consultation, cosmetic surgeon Dr. Reuben Thaker will develop a personalized plan based on your unique needs and goals for your vein treatment.

"I went in for a hydro facial which was the first for me. I scheduled my appointment with Rita. The facility was very inviting and the room was very tranquil. When I laid down on the bed, I noticed it was nice and warm and extremely comfortable. Rita was very accommodating and explained everything that was going on during the facial. This facial was so relaxing and made me feel and look like I was glowing. Can't wait to try this again very soon. Rita even followed up with me the next day to see how my skin was feeling! Great service and even greater customer service!!!"- V.L. / Yelp / Jun 29, 2019
"Amazing facility! The equipment is all up to date and very clean. I had laser hair removal, microdermabrasion and hydration facial (done by Rita) all with noticeable changes before I walked out of the door. Can't recommend this place enough."- A.D. / Google / Jun 07, 2019
"I've been here a handful of times now, and always come out feeling better than when I came in. Dr. Thaker is kind and straightforward, and will work with you to make sure you get the treatment that works for you & your body. If something is not right for you, he won't do it, and I appreciate that honesty; especially in an industry where you may be able to find a doctor who will give you what you want, as long as you're willing to shell out - even if your body won't respond well to it or if could be hazardous to your health. I've come in and had microdermabrasion and hydrofacials done by Rita C., who is a wonderful medical esthetician with a great bedside manner. She always puts me at ease, and the treatments are relaxing and relatively painless - everyone's pain levels are different! But Rita has a gentle touch & I can practically nap while I'm getting it done. The hydrofacials have done wonders for my complexion, and have minimized the areas where I have hyperpigmentation and adult acne. The spa itself is sparkling clean, with all the latest equipment. Their prices are reasonable and they're quick to respond if you have any questions leading up to your appointment. Definitely give them a try if you're looking to treat yourself."- T.N. / Google / Apr 16, 2019
Vein removal at Thaker Cosmetic and Wellness can help the visibility of small to medium-sized blood vessels that are on the face and body. Popularly known as spider veins, these blood vessels are not usually a medical problem, but they are considered unwanted. Many people avoid certain clothing (like shorts and swimsuits) or use a large amount of cosmetics to try to mask these veins. Laser vein reduction is great for patients who are in good overall health, do not have a history of blood clots, and are not pregnant.
Laser Vein Treatment with GentleMax Pro – Nonsurgical vein reduction treatments are done in our Las Vegas office as an outpatient procedure in about 20 – 40 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas treated. During your procedure, you will lie comfortably in a private treatment room as the affected area is prepared. If requested, a topical anesthetic can be applied before your session to minimize any potential discomfort. The laser is passed over the area so the energy can target the veins through a series of pulses that don't affect the skin. The blood vessel takes in the laser energy, which collapses the wall of the vessel. You will be able to leave our office as soon as you feel comfortable to resume your normal day.
Sclerotherapy – If Dr. Thaker believes your veins may not respond well to laser treatment, sclerotherapy may be a better option. This procedure involves the injection of a solution into the vein. The solution (typically salt-based) will irritate the lining of the vessel and cause it to collapse and stick together. Over time, the vessel will turn into scar tissue and will fade from view. This treatment is not often the first choice of practitioners.
Surgery – If your veins have not responded well to sclerotherapy or laser vein treatment, Dr. Thaker may perform a vein removal surgery. There are many methods that could be used to perform this surgery. The method used will be determined by Dr. Thaker following a comprehensive evaluation and consultation.
What to Expect
Depending on your vein removal treatment method, you may have redness, swelling, and bruising, but these symptoms should disappear in about 7 – 10 days. For quicker healing, support or compression garments can be worn to increase blood circulation. It's important to avoid prolonged sun exposure, and you should apply sunscreen frequently to areas that have been treated. Several patients see visible improvements quickly, but the timing of results will vary for each patient. At your initial consultation with Dr. Thaker, realistic expectations will be discussed along with recommendations on how many vein treatments may be needed to reach your best results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does laser vein treatment cost?
A laser vein removal treatment is priced based on what method is used, how many veins are being treated, and how many sessions are recommended for optimal results. During your initial consultation at Thaker Cosmetic and Wellness, we will evaluate your veins and create your treatment plan before establishing a cost. Our practice offers multiple payment options and frequently offers specials on treatments, like laser vein removal.
Which procedure is right for me?
The method most likely to address your veins will be determined during a consultation with Dr. Thaker. Small, lighter veins respond very well to laser treatment while larger, darker veins may need sclerotherapy or vein removal surgery. Additionally, patients may require more than one treatment or a combination of treatments for the best possible result.
Does the vein go away?
The veins will be removed or collapse and dissolve over time, depending on which treatment is used in your treatment plan. It is very common for spider veins to continue to appear over time so a secondary treatment may be needed within a few years time.
Where can laser vein removal be used?
Visible veins may be found on the face, upper thighs, back of the legs, and around the ankles. In most areas of the face and body, laser vein removal can be a good treatment option. Our advanced laser uses precision as it targets the selected vein so the surrounding skin and tissue are generally unaffected.
Is vein removal painful?
Prior to any procedure, we can usually apply numbing cream or use local anesthesia to help numb your skin. While these treatments are minimally invasive, some of them may cause mild discomfort. If you are concerned about discomfort, discuss pain management options with Dr. Thaker during your consultation.
