Frequently Asked Questions
What are spider veins?
Spider veins, which get their name from their web-like appearance, are a milder type of varicose vein that occurs closer to the surface of your skin. Often red or blue, spider veins form a visible network that may cover a small or a large area of skin. Facial spider veins otherwise known as "broken blood vessels" may be brought on by hormone changes, long-term or intense sun exposure, and injury.
How can surface laser treatments help?
Surface laser treatments are a safe, effective, and noninvasive way to treat spider veins and small varicose veins. The laser is especially useful for treating facial spider veins, or those mainly caused by hormonal changes or sun damage. Although this treatment is sometimes called a laser “surgery” for visible spider and varicose veins, it doesn’t involve any incisions or anesthesia. Instead, it uses a handheld device that delivers intense pulses of laser energy directly into the unwanted veins, effectively sealing them shut and making them less visible. Surface laser treatments target spider veins without damaging any of the surrounding tissues, which means potential side effects are minimal, and you can resume your day once the procedure is over. Some spider veins require multiple surface laser treatments to disappear entirely, and Dr. Geria lets you know what course of treatment to expect.
This place is fantastic, the office is seems to be brand new and extremely modern, the staff is very polite which is a hard thing to come by (usually staff at the front desk at most doctors offices are very rude, dismissive and unwilling to accommodate patients). Most importantly, the doctor. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable but he actually takes the time to delve deeper into my medical history to pinpoint exactly what might be contributing to my dermatologic issues. I will definitely continue to visit this practice in the future.
I’ve known Dr. Geria for several years. Not only is he an excellent doctor, he also has the best bedside manner and listens to my concerns. He had treated me for medical and some cosmetic treatments. I trust him completely. His staff is also amazing!

Amazing service. Amazing dermatologist . He spent a long time with me, talking about my needs and concerns. Dr Geria explained what he thought about my acne and scarring in detail. He wasn’t just in and out like some doctors can be. He took the time to analyze my skin and put together a plan of recommendations. Another bonus Hydrafacial – offered on site. Recommended by Dr Geria, my skin has never looked better. Amazing staff and a beautiful office. The prescriptions were sent over promptly also. 7 our of 5 stars.
