Laser Spider Veins Removal Treatment : Face Neck Chest Legs
Spider veins, commonly found on the face and legs, are caused by the dilation of a small group of blood vessels near the skin’s surface. They often look like red, blue or purple lines, sunbursts or web patterns. When they occur on the face these spider veins, also called telangiectasias, may be related to chronic sun exposure or exposure to extremes of temperature. They tend to occur on either the nose or cheeks of fair skinned people.

Laser Vein Removal Lasers
We use a combination of two – three different lasers for spider vein removal. The combination of different lasers allows us to give you the safest most effective treatment. We use longer wavelength lasers ( 1064 Nd:Yag or 810 diode laser) for larger deeper veins and a shorter wavelength laser (532 KTP laser) for smaller more superficial veins. The laser treatment works by passing light through the skin heating up the blood in the vessel causing thermocoagulation of the vessel. The clogged vessel is then slowly absorbed by the body.
Laser Spider Vein Removal Treatments
During laser spider vein removal treatment, the laser is applied to the skin over your spider veins. The laser light is absorbed by the red veins and causes your spider veins to coagulate and shrink. Laser spider vein treatments are most effective for small and medium size spider veins. Large spider veins respond poorly and are best treated with sclerotherapy. Treatments are associated with mild discomfort, not unlike a small rubber band snapping against skin. Treatments do not require sedatives, pain medications, or injections of local anesthetic. Immediately following treatment, spider veins will be darker and more visible. Over two to six weeks, your spider veins usually fade. After each treatment, you will see a significant improvement in the appearance of face spider veins and leg spider veins. An average of three treatments will be required. Combination therapy If you have small, medium, and large spider veins, you may benefit from both sclerotherapy and laser therapy. You may wish to start with sclerotherapy, because sometimes all veins will be improved after injecting the larger ones. This may reduce the number of veins that need to be treated by laser, and minimize your overall cost.
