Laser vein removal is a proven, effective treatment for unsightly broken vessels or unwanted vascular lesions. At the Vein & Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay, we utilize the latest advances in safe, effective laser technology. These new modalities have given Dr. Jeffrey A. Hunt a method for vein removal that is safer, faster, and more effective than any previous treatment. Available to our patients in the Tampa Bay and St. Petersburg, Florida area, laser vein removal is performed by passing a specialized light through the patient’s skin. The laser light is absorbed by unwanted veins, causing them to coagulate, absorb, and disappear.
CoolTouch Endolaser™ treatments, available to Tampa Bay, St. Petersburg, and Florida-area patients, is an advanced laser vein removal option that uses an intravenous medical laser to treat venous disorders. CoolTouch Endolaser™ boasts a nearly 100 percent success rate and patients report only minor pain during treatment.
The CoolTouch Endolaser™ procedure is minimally invasive and is performed right in our comfortable Tampa Bay office. A local anesthetic is administered before laser vein removal to limit discomfort, and the entire treatment generally takes less than an hour.

Recovery from Laser Vein Removal
Your symptoms will begin to improve immediately after the CoolTouch Endolaser™ procedure is completed. However, depending on their severity, some symptoms may take one to two weeks to completely disappear. After laser vein removal treatment, your leg will be wrapped in a compression bandage, and you will be up and walking within 30 minutes. You will be able to resume routine activity the same day and athletic or strenuous activities within several days.
Advantages of Laser Vein Removal
CoolTouch Endolaser™ treatment does not require any incision scars and rarely results in bruising. Other more invasive treatments require a longer rehabilitation timetable and may cause scars or bruising.
Cost of Laser Vein Removal
The price of laser vein removal with CoolTouch Endolaser™ is usually significantly less than other surgical options. Many insurance companies will cover treatment. Pricing for CoolTouch Endolaser™ varies according to each individual’s leg problem and proposed treatment plan.
