Laser Vein Removal in Mansfield
Feel Confident in Your Skin
Two of the most common and confidence-shaking conditions we see at our Premier Women’s Health in Mansfield, TX are spider veins and varicose veins. These skin conditions may cause you reluctancy in dressing in a way that exposes the skin with these visible veins present. Luckily, these easily treatable conditions aren’t ones that have to continue to hamper your self-esteem.
Spider veins and varicose veins are often considered the same thing, but there are actually a few distinct differences between the two. Spider veins appear on the surface of your skin. They are small, and typically pink, purple, or red in color. Varicose veins are still visible on the surface of your skin, but are actually a little deeper than spider veins. Varicose veins are green or blue in color. Both conditions are easily treated with little recovery needed thanks to laser vein removal treatment.

The Laser Vein Removal Process
What to Expect?
Before your laser vein removal Mansfield, TX, you will meet with a member of our team for a consultation to discuss your individual situation. We will go over any concerns you may have and share all relevant information you should be aware of before scheduling your treatment.
Laser Vein Removal Treatment
First, we apply a handheld laser against the skin to covering the targeted vein. This handpiece delivers light that penetrates through the skin and into the blood inside the vein. Skin around the vein will be unaffected. As the blood absorbs the energy from the laser, the vein will begin to heat, causing the vessel’s lining to constrict and fade away from the surface of the skin and out of view. This leaves the skin clear and looking as if the veins were never visible!
After your laser vein removal treatment at Premier Women's Health, we will discuss any follow-up or post-care instructions. In the case of larger veins or additional treatment areas, an additional appointment may be required to fully eliminate visibility.
Preparation for laser vein removal with Premier Women’s Health is not difficult, but there are a few things to be sure to do beforehand:
- Stay well hydrated in the days leading up to your appointment.
- Take any recommended medications you were advised to take.
- Wear comfortable clothing.
- Refrain from taking aspirin and blood thinners a few days prior to appointment.
- Check with our provider team for need of avoidance of certain skin care products prior to treatment or any precautions or contraindications for treatment.
After receiving laser vein removal treatment at Premier Women’s Health, it is best to do the following:
- Cool (not frozen) packs can be used to ease any discomfort to the treated area.
- Avoid strenuous exercise and activity if the treatment area is sore.
- Use sunscreen if treatment area will be exposed to sunlight
- If skin is broken on treatment area keep area covered in bandage
Unless otherwise directed by your provider, you may return to normal activity.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between spider veins and varicose veins?
"Spider" and "varicose" are terms that often get intermingled, but they are actually two different types of vein. Spider veins are found on the skin’s surface. Varicose veins are actually larger and found below the surface of the skin. The two are often confused because they have similar symptoms. Both can cause burning, itching, throbbing, and stinging.
Do veins visibly return after treatment?
In 95% of patients, veins do not visibly return after successful laser vein treatment.
How long does it take to heal after laser vein treatment?
In most cases, you can return to normal activity after treatment. In some cases, mild discomfort can take about 4 weeks to fully resolve.
Who is a candidate for laser vein removal?
The majority of people experiencing visible veins of pink, purple, red, blue, or green color are candidates for treatment. We can determine if our treatment is a good fit for you during a personal consultation with a member of our team.
I've been seeing Dr. Kollar since January and she just delivered my baby on 8/6. The whole experience has been great and she is awesome! Can't recommend her and the team more. Thanks for everything Dr. Kollar and for delivering me a healthy and happy baby boy.

I've been seeing Dr Kollar for close to 20 years for gyn services. Every time I see her, she's friendly, upbeat and tells you everything you need to know concerning your health. She listens and will spend as much time as needed with each patient. I've never felt rushed to get out the door and the appointment times are never overbooked. Each patient has plenty of time with Dr Kollar. I consider Dr Kollar more of a friend than a Dr.

I usually see Dr. Kollar, but this time saw Magen Hutchins (Nurse Practitioner). I was nervous but I LOVED her. She was extremely helpful and took her time explaining things to me. I was so happy I was able to enjoy her as much as Dr. Kollar. The staff was wonderful as always! Great experience

It was my first visit with Dr. Kollar. She was thorough and love how she explains my problems and treatment plans. I didn't have to ask much during the visit because she already answered them all. Brenda and Miranda were very nice and helpful! Looking forward to be Dr. Kollar's long term patient.

I have been going to premier women's health since 2013 and would never go to anywhere else for obgyn care. From the staff to Magen and Dr Kollar, the care and customer service is excellent. Dr Kollar and Magen are very knowledgeable and experienced in varied conditions and chronic illnesses, a major factor in why I still see them 9 years later. I highly recommend their office, and both Magen and Dr Kollar are phenomenal health care professionals.

I absolutely loved my experience with Dr. Kollar, Megan NP & their staff. Everyone works great together establishing a nice flow in the office.
I was a high risk twin pregnancy with twins and this office was truly a God send. Every visit I was pleased by the care provided. At 6 months I was hospitalized. It was devastating& very difficult to process but I will never forget Dr. Kollar’s care given. She went above & beyond taking care of me. From direct phone calls to her rounding on me personally every day while hospitalized. At one of my checkup appts, a staff member just about brought me to tears letting me know the whole office had been praying for me after that scare. I’m forever grateful for this office getting me through my first pregnancy, especially during a pandemic!
I will gladly recommend this center.
The service here is truly heart-felt!
I just had the best experience with Dr. Kollar and her staff. I so wish I had been brave enough to switch doctors during my pregnancy last year - I probably would have had a completely different experience. Dr. Kollar was so refreshingly honest yet positive. I’m so relieved I found such a great practice - won’t be looking anywhere else!
Premier Women's Health doctors and employees have taken care of me for many, many years and in more ways than one. I just love, love them all. The overall atmosphere is just wonderful. I have no complaints at all. I look forward to seeing them every visit. Dr. Carolyn Kollar is the best. We need more doctors like her. Just love (her) I am a happy customer.
I am a staunch advocate of Dr. Kollar because she is a champion for her patients.
Experiencing pregnancy can be scary. You inevitably draft or dream how your experience from conception to delivery will go. Dr. Kollar listens intently and does everything in her power to make that happen. Her calmness is contagious and instills confidence during "push time." Her vast knowledge inspires trust - you know you can count on her to provide the very best plan of action. Even when facing the challenging and not-so-happy experiences of growing a family, she cares deeply and does her part to contribute to your family planning. Finally, she is very transparent and forward. There's no need to try to decipher what she's trying to say. To me, those traits are invaluable.
After delivering my second baby with her practice, my family relocated two hours away, and I will continue to commute when its time for our family to grow.
Dr. Kollar is the absolute best.
