Vein Treatment

At the Skin Cancer & Cosmetic Surgery Center of New Jersey (SCCSNJ), we are committed to providing highly effective vein treatments. Our treatments cater to both the aesthetic concerns and health needs of our patients. We specialize in a comprehensive suite of treatment options that offer our patients relief from issues associated with problematic veins. 

Led by the experienced Dr. Adriana Lombardi, our team keeps up with the latest advancements in vein treatment technology. We leverage advanced technology and a deep understanding of vein conditions to deliver effective solutions tailored to each patient’s needs. Through a consultation, we can assess your specific needs and determine the best vein treatment options for you.

What Is Vein Treatment?


Vein treatment focuses on reducing or eradicating prominent, damaged veins such as spider veins and varicose veins. This could be either medicinal or cosmetic in nature. Using state-of-the-art laser technology, we’re able to specifically target these problematic veins without damaging the surrounding skin or tissue. This ensures that the procedure is effective, and that patients experience minimal discomfort during and after the treatment.

What are Spider Veins (Telangiectasias)?

Spider veins, or telangiectasias, are small, delicate veins close to the skin’s surface. They often appear as intricate blue or red webs on the legs and face. While they are usually not harmful, spider veins can lessen the skin’s aesthetic appearance and become a source of self-consciousness for some individuals.

What Causes Spider Veins (Telangiectasias)?

Spider veins could be caused by a variety of factors. These include genetic predisposition, hormonal changes, standing for long periods of time, and specific vein conditions. Age also contributes to the development of spider veins, as higher blood pressure can make veins dilate. This increases their visibility significantly.

What are Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are larger, more noticeable veins that become distended and contorted over time. These often protrude from the skin, forming a raised or bulging appearance. Varicose veins mainly occur on the legs. Although they are generally harmless, varicose veins can be uncomfortable and cause cosmetic concerns for patients.

What Causes Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins often result from the walls and valves of the veins weakening. This causes blood to pool and veins to swell. Other factors that can cause varicose veins include age, genetic factors, obesity, pregnancy, and occupations requiring prolonged standing. 

What Vein Treatments Do We Offer?

At SCCSNJ, we offer cutting-edge vein treatments, with a particular focus on the innovative Nd:YAG Laser Treatment. This advanced approach uses a concentrated beam of light to precisely target problematic blood vessels. The light is converted into heat to collapse and seal the vein. 

Over time, this leads to the disappearance of the targeted vein, improving the appearance and health of the skin. Spider veins in particular usually disappear immediately after treatment. Varicose veins may darken after laser treatment, and then take several months to vanish completely.

Nd:YAG Laser Treatment

The Nd:YAG Laser Treatment is an effective solution for superficial red or blue/green leg veins. The laser’s precision allows it to target specific veins without damaging the surrounding skin. The procedure is both safe and highly effective. To enhance patient comfort, the Nd:YAG Laser is equipped with a cooling light that eases any discomfort experienced during the treatment.

What Are the Benefits of Nd:YAG Laser Vein Treatment?

The Nd:YAG Laser Vein Treatment offers many benefits. The procedure is typically completed in about 20 minutes, so there is minimal discomfort. It has a large treatment head which allows it to cover a greater skin surface area in a single session. This improves the procedure’s efficiency. 

Beyond addressing vein conditions, the treatment also stimulates the production of new collagen. This results in firmer, smoother skin over time. The treatment does usually leave a small amount of bruising, but this quickly fades, and patients can expect to see visible results immediately for smaller veins.

Vein Treatment Side Effects

While side effects from our vein treatments are minimal, patients may experience temporary redness, swelling, and itching immediately afterwards. Very rarely, there may be some skin discoloration or small blisters if the skin absorbs too much light energy. Our skilled team ensures that every precaution is taken to minimize any side effects. We maintain the highest levels of safety and patient comfort during and after the procedure.

After your procedure, some general aftercare tips should be followed. These include avoiding sun exposure, limiting strenuous exercise, and staying hydrated. In the case of varicose veins, you may need to wear compression stockings for a period of time after the treatment, to help improve blood flow.

How Much Does Nd:YAG Laser Vein Treatment Cost?

The cost of the Nd:YAG Laser Vein Treatment can vary based on the specific needs and conditions of each patient. Cost can be impacted by the extent of the veins being treated and how many treatment sessions are required.
