The Best Option To Treat Undesirable Veins
Do you suffer from unsightly blue leg veins or spidery facial veins? These troublesome lines may seem harmless, but they can alter your positive self-image and damage your confidence. Let the team of experienced professionals at Dermatology Center of Washington Township treat your superficial facial and deep-rooted blue leg streaks with our advanced laser vein therapy in Sewell, NJ. Studies have shown that removing veins with laser treatment is the most effective method. This treatment is also extremely versatile and is available to men and women of any skin tone.
The Benefits Of Laser Vein Therapy
At the Dermatology Center of Washington Township, we only utilize the most advanced forms of technology to treat our valued patients. Our office uses the CoolGlide system to deliver pulses of light energy straight into the vein. The light pulse causes the blood to coagulate, which renders the vein as useless. Your body will then destroy and absorb the vein on its own, and the blood flow will be redirected to the veins deeper inside your skin’s surface. There are many benefits to utilizing the CoolGlide system for laser vein therapy, including:
- Effectively removing veins from all parts of the body
- No bruising or complications
- No painful injections
- Fast, easy treatment for blood blisters and other vascular lesions
- In most cases, one or two treatments will effectively remove troublesome veins
- Minimal to no pain, requiring no anesthesia or medication

Frequently Asked Questions
How does CoolGlide Vein Therapy work?
CoolGlide systems deliver pulses of light energy which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later reabsorbed by your body. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skin’s surface, where it should be.
Who can be treated with CoolGlide systems?
CoolGlide laser systems feature a unique design and long wavelength that allow them to treat patients of all skin tones. Your physician will advise you if CoolGlide Vein Therapy is right for you.
What types of veins can be treated?
CoolGlide systems can remove unsightly veins from all parts of the body. Small, facial veins (or “telangiectasia”) can be treated quickly without bruising or complication. Spider veins and large blue leg veins can also be treated with excellent results. Knotty varicose veins are not good candidates. A careful evaluation with your physician will help you determine which vessels can be treated and the best course of treatment.
How does this compare to Sclerotherapy?
Your doctor will advise you on the best course of action, but many physicians and patients prefer CoolGlide Vein Therapy because there are no painful injections.
What about blood blisters and port wine stains?
Blood blisters or “hemangiomas” respond very well to CoolGlide Vein Therapy, usually with just one treatment. Patients with port wine stains and other vascular lesions who had given up on finding a solution have been overwhelmed by the success of their CoolGlide vascular treatments. Consult your physician for a thorough evaluation.
How many treatments do I need?
Often, patients find that one or two treatments are sufficient. However, the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, color, and size of the vessels being treated. Since individual results vary, ask your medical professional about your specific condition.
Do the treatments hurt?
Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the handpiece. Although no local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required, many patients opt to use a topical anesthetic prior to treatment. Following the treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.
What happens after the treatment?
Following your treatment, some redness or bruising may occur. When larger veins are treated, a tan or brownish pigment may persist for a few weeks or months following treatment. Patients who have leg vein treatments may be advised to wear support hose for a short period of time.
What are the possible side effects?
Although many patients report few if any side effects, those most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin. These effects typically last for less than 24 hours. Some patients may experience bruising and, in rare instances, blistering may occur. Consult with your medical professional for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.
Are there any restrictions on my activity after treatment?
Patients generally resume most normal activities immediately. However, it is recommended that you avoid vigorous activities such as strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours after treatment. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun. As always, it is a good idea to limit your sun exposure.
When will I see results?
Most patients find that the majority of the treated veins have shown significant improvement within two to six weeks of treatment. However, your final results may not be apparent for several months. Over time, it is possible for new veins to appear, but these too can be removed with the CoolGlide laser system.
