What is Vein and Lesion Reduction?
At Lynch Vein & Aesthetics, we offer nonsurgical vein and lesion reduction for your face and body. Performed by our board-certified general surgeon and medical director, Dr. Matthew Lynch, the treatments can target and reduce the appearance of unwanted skin imperfections, like spider veins, broken blood vessels, and birthmarks. Many times, veins and lesions are very difficult to conceal without hiding them under clothing or heavy makeup. This is why we offer aesthetic treatments with our advanced laser, the Harmony XL PRO by Alma, to meet these needs. Left untreated, your unattractive veins or skin lesions can get larger and/or multiply as you age. Dr. Lynch would like to offer you a consultation to assess your skin at his office in Peoria, AZ. After your initial appointment, he can provide you with innovative treatments to improve the beauty of your skin.

"Dr. Lynch is great with acne issues. I have struggled with cystic acne for all of my adult life. It has been painful and leaves awful scaring on my face. I did not feel comfortable going out without make up on. I have tried various treatments both orally and topical. Dr. Lynch came up with a treatment plan for me. He was up front and informative as to what I could expect and what I would experience. After my first treatment with Dr. Lynch, I noticed a difference in my acne. It was less painful and less red the next day and even more less going forward. By the third visit I felt comfortable and confident in going out without make up on. I still feel that way and with three kids and a baby, no make up means more free time. Thank you Dr. Lynch!"- A.K. / Google / Sep 23, 2022

What are the benefits of nonsurgical vein reduction?
Spider veins and broken blood vessels can cause a number of cosmetic concerns that make it difficult to feel comfortable in your own skin. They often cause a person to feel self-conscious, especially when wearing shorts or bathing suits. Nonsurgical vein reduction can reduce the overall appearance of these veins and lesions in a way that produces satisfying results with very little downtime. Benefits of laser treatment with Dr. Lynch include:
- Reduced appearance of skin imperfections
- Fast recovery times
- Minimal discomfort
- Long-lasting results
- No scarring
Do I qualify for treatment?
Dr. Lynch will offer you a thorough consultation to make sure a laser treatment is the right course of action for your treatment. He will give you the guidance you need to get the results you want. You may consider your vascular lesions to be aesthetically unpleasing, but they are typically not a medical problem. Our nonsurgical vein and lesion reduction treatments at Lynch Vein & Aesthetics can minimize the visibility of small- to medium-sized lesions on your body and/or face. Dr. Lynch may recommend other options (like sclerosing solution injections or ultrasound-guided treatments) for more in-depth vascular issues.
Dr. Lynch's laser technique
Dr. Lynch will provide you with a private treatment room to perform your nonsurgical laser vein reduction sessions. Your treatment may last 20 – 40 minutes, which will be based on the number of areas being addressed. All you have to do during your appointment is to relax in a reclined position as the area will be cleaned, prepared, and treated. If requested, a local anesthetic may be applied before your session to minimize any potential discomfort. The Harmony XL PRO laser will be passed over the area so the wavelengths can target the lesions through multiple pulses. It will not damage or impact the health of the surrounding tissues. You will be allowed to leave as soon as you feel comfortable and get back to your regular routine.
What to Expect after treatment
After any laser treatment for veins or lesions, you may have bruising, swelling, and redness, which should fade away within 7 – 10 days. For quicker healing, support or compression garments should be worn to improve blood circulation in the legs. Some of our vein and lesion reduction patients may see visible improvements immediately, but results will be different for each person.
At your consultation with Dr. Lynch, realistic expectations will be discussed, as well as suggestions on the number of sessions needed to achieve your best results. More spider veins or recurring skin lesions will probably form over time so additional or touch-up treatments may be needed in the future.
Nonsurgical vein reduction FAQs
What causes spider veins?
The main cause of spider veins is unknown in some cases. However, they are often associated with age, genetics, pregnancy, and hormone changes. Other factors might include injury to the affected area. Lynch Vein & Aesthetics can treat unwanted spider veins that make you feel self-conscious or uncomfortable with your skin.
How many treatments do I need?
It depends on different factors, such as the severity of your condition. Our team will provide a customized treatment plan for you during an initial consultation and provide an estimate for the number of sessions needed to achieve results. After your first appointment, we may make adjustments to your treatment plan.
What about over-the-counter options?
Drugstore lotions and creams are simply not effective in removing spider veins. They may hide the appearance of blue or purple veins but don't address the underlying condition. We use targeted treatments in Peoria, AZ, to break down veins — so they do not reappear. This is what makes our process successful.
Fewer Lesions, More Youthful Skin
Our team at Lynch Vein & Aesthetics wants you to have youthful skin you don't have to conceal. Let's improve the look of your complexion with nonsurgical vein and lesion reduction. At your initial consultation, Dr. Lynch will assess your skin and formulate a personalized treatment plan to address your vein or lesion concerns. Find your right solution at our Peoria, AZ office at your earliest convenience.
