Visible veins, like spider veins, may be caused by a number of factors, including genetics, frequent standing, obesity, pregnancy, hormone changes, and more, which means you may not be able to prevent visible veins, but you can treat them. Laser vein treatments at ZO Skin Centre® in Orange County can help reduce the appearance of small to medium-sized blood vessels in the face and body. Typically found on the face, thighs, and lower legs, visible blood vessels can be faded or eliminated with nonsurgical laser treatments. At our locations in Laguna Beach and Newport Beach, we use the NewSurg KTP diode laser system for laser vein treatments. Schedule a consultation to learn more about the procedure and if it is right for your needs.

"A few months ago I got treated for my cellulite with the Cellfina Treatment. I was treated by Dr. Bashey in Beverly Hills and could not be happier with my results. Being in my forties I honestly do not have the time for creams with my baby running around. Cellfina was a very quick treatment and long lasting that gave me the desired results I had no idea were possible. I chose to get this treatment well before bathing suit season, but honestly there was very little downtime and the recovery was quick.There was bruising for a month or so after, but once that went away I was able to see the extent of the results. I would highly recommend this treatment to anyone who has mild to severe dimpling and cellulite. It was an immediate mood boost and overall I feel like my confidence after having a kid is restored."- M.E. / Yelp / Apr 10, 2018
"Voluma Filler for my Face instead of Botox! AMAZING Results I was not Expecting! I recently went to see Dr. Bashey in Laguna Beach as the holidays are approaching and needed to get some Botox. I have received botox in the past and am familiar with it. I am in my mid-fifties and figured this was what I definitely needed. Dr. Bashey didn't just look at me and give me what I came in for, he sat down and really looked at my face, then went over different areas that could use help. Dr. Bashey is articulate and ended up injecting filler into my upper cheek area as well as Xeomon into my forehead. The filler ended up very naturally lifting my cheeks and face and also will last me he said up to 18 months or longer. I am extremely happy with my results and very thankful he took time with me to evaluate my needs. Dr. Bashey is extremely polite and made me feel comfortable with consulting before doing anything. I did not feel pressured and not much pain! I am looking forward to seeing him in the near furture for a for a chemical peel :)Thanks!"- N.H. / Yelp / Dec 19, 2017

Laser vein treatments can be used to reduce the appearance of visible veins in a branching or web like pattern, including:
Port wine stains
What to expect
Laser vein treatments may take about 15 – 30 minutes, depending on how many areas are being treated and the size of each area. After your eyes are protected, a technician will pass the handpiece over the visible veins, which will emit pulses of light. The blood in the vessel will soak up the light and eventually be absorbed by the body. You should be able to resume your normal activities after your treatment, but you should avoid sun exposure in treated areas and wearing support/compression garments can promote healing. You will probably be able to see a reduction in the appearance of your veins right away, but most patients need multiple treatments to see their best results and touch-up treatments may be needed if future veins appear.
