At Laser Skin & Wellness, our expert laser technicians offer spider vein removal using laser treatment. Laser vein therapy is quick and virtually painless, transforming the face and legs into vein-free skin.
Spider veins are small, enlarged blood vessels on the skin’s surface that appear red or blue. They may appear as unconnected lines or in a matted pattern. Sometimes, they look like branches of a tree or a spider web. They can appear anywhere on the body, but spider veins are usually found on the face and legs.
Normally, spider veins have no health risk, however, after prolonged standing, they may cause a burning sensation or dull aching in the legs. The cause of spider veins is not completely known. In many cases, there appears to be a genetic predisposition.
We provide laser vein therapy in order to help remove most spider veins. Laser technology offers a very effective means of removing spider veins. The laser has this ability to pinpoint certain blood vessels without affecting surrounding tissues. The light is absorbed by the spider veins, which heats the blood vessels very gently and causes the blood to collapse. During the natural healing process, the body then reabsorbs the treated blood vessels.
"The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. They took their time to explain everything to me and they were very kind and gentle throughout my procedure. I would recommend them to anyone I know." — Laurin S.Read More »
Depending upon the severity of the spider veins, you may require two or more treatments, spaced at 6 to 8 weeks apart. Realistically, about 60-70% improvement with two or more treatments are expected.
Patients report temporary swelling and redness, which disappears very quickly. Bruising is possible and may take weeks to resolve. Others may experience pigment changes in skin color that typically resolves over time. Since laser vein treatment does not burn or cut the skin in any way, no bandages are necessary, and you can return to your normal activities immediately, provided you clearly follow all post treatment instructions.
