  • Vein Treatment


In the case of treating painful or unsightly varicose or spider veins, cutting-edge medical therapy means no cutting at all. The staff at About Face @ Vein Specialists Institute is dedicated to providing safe, effective, and affordable non-surgical treatments for patients with vein problems, wrinkles, aging, sundamaged skin, and unwanted body fat. Kenneth Jesser, M.D., a graduate of Johns Hopkins Medical School, has practiced continuously in the desert since 1988. A double-certified internist and emergency physician, he is also a board–certified vein specialist by the American Board of Phlebology, and remains an active member of the Eisenhower Medical Center medical staff. Having trained in the specialty field of phlebology (the treatment of vein disease), he is nationally recognized for his expertise and quality of care for patients with both cosmetic and medical vein problems. "We are dedicated to providing state-of-the-art, ethical, and cosmetically appealing solutions for the treatment of unsightly and painful varicose, and spider veins of the legs, face, hands, and body." Dr. Jesser says "We value the trust that our patients give us, and we work very hard to maintain it. Many of our patients come to us after undergoing expensive treatments from other facilities that did not deliver promise results. While other clinics attempt to treat spider and varicose veins without addressing the underlying cause, we take a comprehensive approach. Using in-office Duplex Ultrasound and multiple forms of light to look under the skin, we find and treat the feeder veins that are causing the problems. It’s very gratifying to see many of our patients report an immediate improvement of the pain in their legs they have experienced for years. Many of these patients did not even realize they had meaningful vein disease causing their symptoms." Varicose veins are common, affecting 50 percent of women and 20 percent of men in the United States. Spider veins, unsightly facial capillaries, and large varicose veins represent damaged veins with leaking internal valves. Left untreated, varicose and spider veins progressively get worse, compounding the problems and the necessary treatments, and potentially leading to swelling, discoloration, cramping, pain and ulcerations in the legs, and feet. Fortunately, Dr. Jesser may perform endovenous laser ablation (closure of a large vein with a filament-like fiber), ultrasound-guided injection therapy, or simple sclerotherapy to remove a problem vein. Undesirable facial and nose veins can frequently be eliminated with specialized laser treatments in a single visit. All procedures are performed comfortably and safely without general anesthesia. Vein Specialists Institute accepts Medicare and Anthem Blue Cross PPO for vein treatments that are deemed medically necessary.


Due to his interest and expertise in non-surgical aesthetics, Dr. Jesser continues to bring the latest innovative procedures to his desert patients. Coolsculpting™ is a clinically proven, non-surgical treatment that freezes stubborn fat, which then is naturally eliminated from the body without needles or down time. Coolsculpting™ non-invasive body contouring permanently reduces stubborn fat bulges that are resistant to exercise and diet. Because of its rising popularity, we were the first practice to offer Dual CoolSculpting, meaning we are able to treat two areas in just one hour in the comfort of a spa room where patients can enjoy watching TV, reading, or just relaxing. Dr. Jesser also is the first physician in the desert to offer Body FX and Fractora Firm procedures by Inmode; these are completely non-invasive radio-frequency procedures that tighten skin on the face, neck, arms, thighs, or abdomen, while reducing cellulite and permanently breaking down unwanted fat.


Dr. Jesser is the only provider in the desert to offer the latest technology for laser tattoo removal with the new PicoSure™; the most advanced laser treatment available for safe and effective tattoo removal. PicoSure™ works using a shortened, but more powerful pulse of energy. This cutting edge technology is able to reduce all colors of ink, including difficult to treat blacks and blues, and also previously treated tattoos. So, even if other tattoo removal professionals have given up on your tattoos, PicoSure™ can be very successful. Using PicoSure™ means fewer treatments, faster recovery time, and greater results. And, all of this can result in more affordable, and more successful tattoo removal.
