About Lesion Correction
Typically found on the face and legs, spider veins are small, branching blood vessels that are visible through the skin. Caused by many factors, like age and genetics, spider veins can be blue, purple, and red, which makes them difficult to hide. Since these veins usually get worse over time and gain more visibility, it's smart to seek treatment when they first appear. To minimize the look of spider veins on the face and body, as well as vascular lesions, like wine port stains, broken vessels and capillaries, redness of the skin, and rosacea, Pura Vida Body & Mind Spa offers vascular lesion correction for women and men. In your private consultation, we will develop a personalized plan based on your unique needs and goals for your treatment.

"For a truly relaxing experience be sure to book an appointment with Melissa. I have had the hydra facial done at others spas that were nice but Melissa took it to a true pampering treatment. She is very skilled at what she does and she treats you like you are a guest. My skin felt firm and glowing. She is also really good at waxing services, she double and double checks to be sure to remove all hairs. By far one of the best facial treatments I have had in years. I actually fell asleep for a bit. Thank you Melissa."- C.D. / Facebook / Feb 13, 2020

"I had my monthly massage from Erika tonight and wow!! This time I added the Himalayan Hot Salt Massage enhancement... amazing. This was by far the best message and I plan to add this enhancement more often. The hot stones made me feel so relaxed, helped my muscles tremendously, relieved soreness and stress. I'm so happy I have this amazing spa so close to home- literally heaven! The girls here are so sweet and Erika is awesome every visit! Love this place! You will not regret the Himalayan Hot Salt stones added to your massage!"- D.D. / Yelp / Feb 03, 2020

Vascular lesion correction at Pura Vida can help the visibility of small to medium-sized blood vessels, as well as other vascular lesions (port wine stains, rosacea, broken blood vessels, chronic redness) that are on the face and body. Vascular lesions, like spider veins, are not usually a medical problem, but they are considered unwanted. Many people avoid certain clothing (like shorts and swimsuits) or use heavy amounts of makeup to try to mask these vascular lesions. Vascular lesion correction is great for patients who are in good overall health, do not have a history of blood clots, and are not pregnant.
What to Expect
Vascular lesion correction treatments are done in our office as an outpatient procedure in about 20 – 40 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas treated. During your procedure, you will lay comfortably in a private treatment room as the area being treated is prepared. If requested, a topical anesthetic can be applied before your session to minimize any potential discomfort. The Cutera LimeLight laser is passed over the area so the energy can target the vascular lesion through a series of pulses that don't affect the skin. The blood vessel or lesion takes in the laser energy, which collapses the wall of the vessel. You will be able to leave our office as soon as you feel comfortable to resume your normal day.
Following your vascular lesion correction treatment, you may have redness, swelling, and bruising, but these symptoms should disappear in about 7 – 10 days. For quicker healing, support or compression garments can be worn to increase blood circulation. It's important to avoid prolonged sun exposure and you should apply sunscreen frequently to areas that have been treated. Several patients see visible improvements quickly, but the timing of results will vary in each patient. At your initial consultation at Pura Vida, reasonable expectations will be discussed along with recommendations on how many sessions may be needed to reach your best results. Other vascular lesions will probably appear over time so touch-up sessions may be needed every few years.
Plan Your Procedure
Remove Vascular Lesions
Instead of concealing or covering unattractive spider veins and other vascular lesions on your body or face, consider nonsurgical laser treatments at Pura Vida in Jacksonville, FL to improve the appearance of your skin. At your consultation, we can assess your skin and develop a custom treatment plan to best fit your goals.
