The veins that run under your skin often cause unwanted skin irregularities. Vascular lesions include birthmarks like port wine stains that can be distracting when on the face. Spider and varicose veins are other vascular issues that can alter the appearance of your skin. At Maia Plastic Surgery, we offer a non-invasive option for removing vascular lesions and visible veins. Our Washington, DC, area clinics can perform Vasculaze treatment to remove spider/varicose veins and other vascular lesions.

What is Vasculaze?

Optimas by InMode is a laser skin treatment platform that includes the Vasculaze device for treating vascular lesions. This treatment uses pinpoint laser energy to target unwanted veins that cause blemishes on the skin. The light energy is attracted to the blood vessels, destroying the vascular walls. The targeted veins are reabsorbed into the body, and the blood vessels are no longer visible, creating an even tone for the skin. This treatment can be used for birth marks or visible blood vessels on the face, as well as for spider and varicose veins on the legs.

The Vasculaze treatment can be performed in less than an hour – the amount of time needed depends on the size of the area treated. This is a non-invasive procedure; patients do not need to schedule downtime after treatment. For most vascular lesion removal, it does require multiple sessions to achieve the desired result.

Varicose and Spider Vein Treatment

If you have a spider web of veins on your face or protruding varicose veins on your legs, Vasculaze treatments may be perfect for you. This laser therapy targets the hemoglobin in the unwanted blood vessels while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. You can improve the tone of your facial skin or create more youthful-looking legs without invasive procedures.

To learn more about non-surgical treatments for removing spider or varicose veins, or fading vascular lesions, call our team at Maia Plastic Surgery. We offer many laser skin treatments, including Vasculaze, for removing unwanted vascular lesions. Call our Chevy Chase, MD or Tysons Corner, VA center to schedule a laser skin treatment consultation.

Kerri L.

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a consultation with Dr. Maia, not only was her expertise evident, her compassion shown through as she walked us through the process. Thankfully, I felt very comfortable trusting her as I underwent reconstruction surgery. I am very happy with the results and highly respect and recommend Dr. Maia.

Dr Maia truly loves what she does. She is invested in making you the version of yourself you want to be. She listens attentively to what you want and makes relevant suggestions. She did not try to introduce anything unnecessary into my treatment plan. The results I achieved during my first treatment keeps me coming back. Her staff is excellent and works to accommodate your schedule. I have recommended Dr. Maia several times and each time I get the same positive feedback.

Selecting a surgeon: After having two children and weight fluctuations over the years I was left with complete loss of volume in my breasts. I had four consultations with other surgeons but after comparing their photos to Dr Maia’s and meeting her in person, I knew she was my doctor. We talked about my lifestyle - being a mom and a professional, I didn’t want to be too big, but I’m curvy so I didn’t want to go too small for my frame either. She let me try on sizes and once I selected she agreed it was a good fit for my frame. Post op recovery: I was a smoker and had quit prior to surgery but she was very honest and adamant in telling me how important it was that I did not smoke. (I honestly needed the lecture and the transparency about what could happen if I did start smoking before surgery and post-op.) Because I was formerly a pretty heavy smoker, it did cause some issues after surgery with wound closing and she was SO diligent and on top of it seeing me once and week and squeezing me in for appointments between surgeries and patients. She prescribed different things to address the would closure issues before they really became a problem. Being able to have text message access to the office was great when I had questions and she even accommodated my schedule when I couldn’t be seen in person to send progress photos so that she could check on me. 3 months post op: I’m so happy with the results of my surgery and am so glad I waited to find the right doctor. She’s an artist! They look natural, fit my body shape and they haven’t even fully “dropped and fluffed” yet. Would highly recommend… comparing her patient photos to other surgeons will end your search. I feel so much better in my body thanks to Dr Maia.

Justine A.

This is my second time at Dr. Maia’s office and I am so pleased with my experience here. The staff is so friendly and caring. Dr. Maia is the best Dr in the DMV area, she knows exactly what she is doing and you will be happy with the results! I am so glad I found her! I recommend anyone who’s looking for a very personable doctor to come and see her! Thank you Dr. Maia & staff!
