What is Laser Vein Removal?
Searching for a noninvasive way to remove spider veins in highly visible areas, like the legs and face? Caused by many factors, like age and genetics, spider veins can be difficult to mask. Since these veins will progressively get larger or multiply over time, they will only become more visible. Lincoln Park Aesthetics offers nonsurgical laser vein removal sessions for Chicago, IL men and women. Our innovative laser system is precise and will not affect the surrounding veins or skin. Explore your options with laser vein removal at your earliest convenience.
"I have never really been one to place great care on my skin, which was all fine and dandy in my early 20s, but having just scratched the surface into my 30s, I knew it was high-time to start investing in my skin. After seeing incredible results with Jordan from a laser hair removal Groupon last year, I decided to call upon her for my skin. My first appointment was such a great experience! Beforehand, I was feeling a little embarrassed about the lack of skin care in my past, but Jordan listened without judgement and made me feel so comfortable. I have always had dry skin and thought that buying products for "normal to dry skin" was the best thing for me, but after that first appointment, I walked away with a much better understanding that dry skin can mean sensitive skin, so the exfoliants I was using was actually making my skin worse. AH! I have only been seeing her a few short months, but I can already see such a difference. I didn't even realize how dull my skin was looking before meeting with Jordan. The dry, wrinkled-looking skin that I had just come to expect when looking in the mirror is starting to look smooth and shiny. Not to mention, when the pandemic has let up and allowed brief glimpses at a normal life, I haven't been wearing foundation while going out because the coloring of my skin is the most even it has ever been (take that, early-20s me!) I cannot recommend LPA enough and, in particular, I cannot recommend Jordan enough! If you want to look your best, it is 100% worth the investment."- A.J. / Google / Nov 24, 2020
"I’ve been going back and forth on getting botox for a while. After talking to LPA’s newest injector, Julia Kocemba, I decided to finally go for it and I’m so happy I did!This was my first time receiving injectables and the appointment couldn’t have gone any smoother! Julia answered all of my first-timer questions [yes, there were a lot of them] with great detail and patience. By the time I was ready to be injected, I felt knowledgeable and confident in the process and type of treatments I was about to receive. Throughout the entirety of the appointment, I felt safe and knew I was in the best hands with Julia!I LOVE my results and have been recommending Julia to everyone! I already have my next treatment scheduled and I will continue to reach out to her with any other derm/aesthetics questions I have. Go see Julia!!!!"- A.H. / Yelp / Nov 23, 2020
"I had a fantastic experience with this office and Dr. Gutoswki. Everything from scheduling through the procedure was great. They were thorough and explained my options very well. I had been putting this surgery off for a long time because I thought it was going to be very uncomfortable but everyone was great. They made the entire process really easy and I would definitely recommend them. I'm really happy with my results."- E.M. / Google / Oct 24, 2020

"The team at LPA are so incredibly kind and accommodating. In particular, Jenna M. is incredibly talented with all things aesthetics. She will make you feel your very best - while looking natural, and feeling as if you left a cocoon of care. Her extensive experience, ability to REALLY listen, make sure you are comfortable, and follow up is the gold standard. I can’t recommend her or this clinic more - very special people!"- J.J. / Yelp / Oct 15, 2020
DO I Qualify For Laser Vein Removal?
Nonsurgical vein reduction sessions at Lincoln Park Aesthetics can minimize the look of small to medium-sized veins on the face and body. Commonly known as spider veins, these visible blood vessels are rarely a medical issue; however, they are considered a cosmetic problem. Affected people tend to avoid certain clothing (such as shorts and swimsuits) or use a large amount of makeup to cover up their spider veins. Laser vein removal is best for people who have overall good health, do not have blood clots, and are not pregnant.
Our Laser Vein Removal Technique
Laser vein removal sessions are completed in our Chicago, IL office as an outpatient procedure in about 20 – 40 minutes based on the number of veins being addressed. In your session, you will relax in a reclined position in a private treatment room as your skin is prepared. If requested, a topical anesthetic can be applied beforehand to reduce any potential discomfort. The handheld laser device will emit targeted energy to reach the veins through multiple pulses. The abnormal blood vessel will soak in the energy of the laser. The vein will respond by closing in the walls of the vein. You will be allowed to leave our office right after the treatment to get back to your normal activities.
What to Expect
Following your laser vein removal session, you may notice swelling, redness, and bruising. These short-lived side effects should disappear in 7 – 10 days. For optimal healing, compression or support garments may be worn to improve blood circulation. It's necessary to avoid prolonged sun exposure, and we encourage you to apply sunscreen frequently to the treated skin. Some patients see visible improvements right away, but results will vary for every person. During your initial consultation with our aesthetics team, we will make recommendations on how many sessions will be necessary to get the nicest result. New spider veins will likely appear in time so follow-up treatments may be performed as needed. This treatment will not prevent new spider veins from forming in the same spot or elsewhere on your skin.
