Chicago area’s John Bull Center
Healthy vessels allow blood to flow freely, but certain conditions can cause veins to not function the way they should. As a result, blood can move sluggishly and begin to pool or back up, causing the vessel to swell and become noticeable through the surface of the skin.
Spider vein treatments at the Chicago area’s John Bull Center can help clear these visible vessels, from spider veins on the face to thicker and deeper veins on the legs. Dr. John Bull chose the Cutera Xeo for laser vein treatments at his Naperville practice. The advanced technology allows for safely and effectively treating both tiny superficial face veins and deeper blue leg veins on men and women of all skin tones with minimal bruising or blistering. We strive to deliver the best spider vein treatment Naperville has to offer.
There are two types of visible vessels addressed by laser vein treatments. Spider veins typically develop on the nose or cheeks, creating webs of fine red, blue, or purple lines. Contributing factors include age, sun exposure, and certain chronic conditions that can weaken blood vessels and cause the skin to thin, making the pooled blood more easily visible through the surface layers.
Deeper leg veins are often ropy lines that appear dark blue or purple. These can develop due to genetics, as well as inactivity and medical conditions that make it more difficult for blood to travel from the legs and back up to the heart. While the visible veins are not necessarily dangerous themselves, they can indicate underlying health problems, so it is important to have them looked at by a medical professional.
Absorb the Energy
A spider vein treatment involves delivering pulses of light energy through the surface of the skin and into the targeted vessels, where red-pigmented cells absorb the energy and heat up.
This heat causes the blood within the vein to coagulate, making the vessel useless and ultimately prompting your body to absorb it. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skin’s surface, where it will not be visible.

Treatment as Comfortable as Possible
Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the spider vein treatment device’s handpiece. Although no local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required, many of our Naperville spider vein treatment patients want to use a topical anesthetic prior to their treatment, just to be sure it’s as comfortable as possible.
Although many patients report few—if any—side effects from spider vein treatment, the most common responses in the targeted area are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin. These effects typically last for less than 24 hours. Some patients may experience bruising and, in rare instances, blistering.
The majority of the treated vessels will likely show significant improvement within two to six weeks of the spider vein treatment. However, your ultimate results may not be apparent for several months, as it takes time for the body to absorb the useless vein and re-direct blood flow. One or two treatments are generally sufficient, but the specifics of any spider vein treatment plan depend on the number, color, and size of the vessels being treated. It is possible for new veins to someday appear in the treated area, but these can be removed the same way.
