About Laser Vein Removal
Commonly found on the legs and face, spider veins are small, branching blood vessels that are visible through the skin. Caused by age, genetics, and other factors, spider veins can be purple, red, and blue, which makes them difficult to conceal. Since spider veins usually progress over time and become more and more visible, it's important to seek treatment at the first signs. To reduce the appearance of spider veins on the face and body, Spa 361 at the Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute offers noninvasive laser vein removal for men and women in Lansdale, PA and the surrounding area. During your private consultation, we will create a personalized plan based on your unique needs and goals for your laser vein treatment.
"My teenage daughter and I are both patients of Dr. Kasper. The reception area is modern and bright. The reception area staff is always welcoming. Dr. Kasper is friendly and efficient. Wait time is short, which I appreciate. I am thinking about booking an aesthetician appointment or two in the near future."- M.A. / Yelp / Jun 30, 2019
"Woowwwww! Went in for a while body exam because I gave fair skin. Best experience I have had at a dermatologist, or maybe at any doctors office ever. So clean. Punctual. Organized. Pleasant. The PA Amy that I saw was personable, pleasant and knowledgeable! What a tremendously positive experience! Would highly recommend !"- M.S. / Yelp / Feb 26, 2020

"Absolutely a positive experience. The office is really well designed. I walked in and was greeted and taken care of right away. The woman doing my registration was very nice. The doctor (Dr. Manion) was friendly and all business. Took care of my issue that day in less than 5 minutes. Pain free. Solid explanations. Great doctor. Scheduling a follow up was easy too. Amanda made it seamless and simple."- B.M. / Google / Feb 14, 2020
"I am new to this practice so I have only been there twice so I cannot make an overall rating yet. I will say that the check in receptionist was great. There was a discrepancy with my copay, the woman double checked the information and verified on her end what she was seeing which was incorrect. She then took me at my word and charged me the copay that I paid last time in case what I was saying was accurate. I confirmed later with the office building department (which was also a very pleasant and positive phone call) The front desk woman did not argue and neither did I. It was just a very pleasant transaction that in my experience with payment does not happen very often so it was refreshing and I am very grateful to her. Same thing with the billing department Jennifer I believe was very patient, kind, and helpful. Even though I've only been here for 2 visits so far top notch help and service. I truly appreciate what everyone has done for me so far."- J.B. / Google / Jan 30, 2020
Laser Vein Removal Ideal Candidates
Laser vein removal treatments at Spa 361 at the Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute can improve the appearance of small- to medium-sized blood vessels on the face and body. Commonly referred to as spider veins, these blood vessels are typically not a medical problem, but they are often considered unattractive by patients who have them. Many people avoid certain clothing (like shorts and swimsuits) or use a large amount of makeup to try to hide their spider veins. Laser vein removal is best for patients who are in overall good health, do not have a history of blood clots, and are not pregnant.
Laser vein removal is not the best solution for the larger, swollen veins called varicose veins. If you suffer from varicose veins, a better method of treatment is sclerotherapy.
Laser Vein Removal Procedure Technique
Laser vein treatments are performed in our Lansdale, PA office as an outpatient procedure in 20 – 40 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas being treated. During your laser vein procedure, you will lie comfortably in a private treatment room as the affected area is cleansed and prepared. If requested, a topical anesthetic can be applied before your treatment to lessen any potential discomfort. The handheld laser device is passed over the area so the energy can target the veins through a series of pulses without affecting the surrounding tissues. The blood vessel absorbs the laser energy, which causes it to collapse and close. Eventually, the collapsed blood vessel will be absorbed and passed out of the body. You will be able to leave our office right after the treatment to resume your normal activities.
What to Expect with Laser Vein Removal
After your laser vein removal treatment, you may experience swelling, redness, and bruising, but these symptoms should subside within 7 – 10 days. For faster healing, support or compression garments should be worn to improve your blood circulation. It's important to avoid prolonged sun exposure, and you should apply sunscreen frequently to treated areas.
Some patients may see visible improvements immediately, but results will vary for each patient. During your initial consultation, we will discuss what results you can realistically expect, as well as recommendations on how many sessions you will need to achieve your best results. New spider veins will probably develop over time, so more treatments may be needed every few years.
Plan Your Procedure

Constantly being self-conscious about your spider veins can affect your quality of life, because the efforts you make to hide them can impact your participation and enjoyment of daily activities. If you are living your life based on clothes or makeup that hides your spider veins, we urge you to consider laser vein removal treatment at Spa 361 at the Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute. During your consultation, we will assess your veins and discuss what kind of results you could expect.
