What Is Laser Spider Vein Removal?

Laser spider vein removal treatments restore a uniform skin tone and safely treat unsightly spider veins. These spider veins affect men and women of all ages, and while they most frequently form on the legs, they appear anywhere on the body, including the face and nose.

A laser spider vein removal treatment uses light-based energy to shrink and break down the visible vein. The body will divert blood to a healthier vein and eventually flush the damaged vein out of the system, eliminating it from sight.

What Causes Spider Veins?

Spider veins on the face and legs result when blood vessels dilate just below the skin’s surface. These veins appear red, purple, or blue in a linear, sunburst, or web pattern. Spider veins on the face result from exposure to extreme temperatures or chronic sun exposure. Facial spider veins often impact men and women with fair skin and often form on the nose or cheeks.

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.

What Are the Benefits of This Laser Treatment?

  • Effective elimination of spider veins on the face and body
  • Treatments are quick, virtually painless, and non-invasive.

The Little-Known Benefit of Laser Spider Vein Removal

Patients who undergo a laser spider vein removal treatment have a primary objective of eliminating the vein from the treatment area. However, most people don’t know about the added benefit of this treatment.

As the laser devices heat the skin’s surface, it causes the body to react by increasing collagen and elastin production and accelerating cellular regeneration. When you undergo this treatment, not only will you be rid of your unwanted spider veins, but you can also expect smoother, brighter, and rejuvenated skin.

How Does It Work?

We use the excel V+ laser device to perform our laser treatments. The excel V+ uses a high-power laser with two clinically proven wavelengths that treat large spot sizes up to 16 mm. It features different handpieces that allow us to target spider veins on the face and body.

During the treatments, the device delivers light energy beyond the skin’s surface directly into the blood in the vessel, which causes thermocoagulation. The vessel responsible for the spider vein is broken down and slowly absorbed and eliminated by the body.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Most patients need two to four treatments to achieve their desired results. An initial consultation is the first step in learning more about the treatment and helping us determine the right protocol to effectively eliminate your spider veins.

What Happens During a Treatment?

When you arrive for your treatment, we’ll prepare the skin in the area and apply the excel V+ laser directly over the spider veins. As the device delivers laser light into the skin, the spider veins absorb it, leading to their coagulation and shrinking. This treatment is most effective for smaller and medium-sized spider veins. This treatment is noninvasive and you can expect the laser treatment to feel like a rubber band gently snapping the skin’s surface.

What To Expect

Immediately following your treatment, your spider veins may appear darker and even more visible than before, which is normal and a sign that the process is working. Within two to four weeks, the spider veins begin to fade, and you’ll notice a more uniform skin tone and visibly reduced veins.

How Long Will My Results Last?

After undergoing this treatment, you can expect permanent results. The excel V+ laser effectively treats and eliminates existing spider veins on the legs, face, and other body areas, but it can’t prevent new ones from forming.

Preventing New Spider Veins

After your treatment, you’ll enjoy a more uniform skin tone and can maintain the healthiest, spider vein-free skin by taking some steps to prevent the formation of new spider veins. Living an active lifestyle and avoiding prolonged sitting or standing will promote blood flow and prevent new veins from forming.

Additionally, eating a healthy diet, promoting blood circulation, and reaching and maintaining a healthy weight will all go a long way in keeping your skin and veins as healthy as possible. If you develop spider veins after your treatment you can schedule an additional treatment, and we will use the laser device to eliminate them.

Is There Downtime?

There’s no social downtime after a laser spider vein removal treatment. As with any laser treatment, you must avoid sun exposure immediately following your treatments since your skin will be more sensitive to UV rays. Wearing sunscreen and protecting your skin with a hat or protective clothing will ensure you don’t experience any post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or sun damage following your treatment.

Your skin may be more sensitive, so it’s important to use the right products to avoid irritating or inflaming the treatment area. We will make product recommendations after your treatment so you know how to moisturize your skin to keep it hydrated.
