Spider and Leg Veins
Spider veins, or telangiectasias, are small, thin, blood vessels visible beneath the skin. They appear most commonly on the face and legs and may look like a series of lines, tree branches, or a spider- or web-like shape with a dark center. It is estimated that they affect nearly half of adult women in the U.S.
For spider veins, our laser produces a highly unique wavelength, which safely passes through the skin and is selectively absorbed by the targeted blood vessel. The spider vein will then gradually disappear, leaving the skin intact. Side effects are uncommon and usually mild, including a slight redness for a few days following the treatment.
How do lasers treat spider veins?
During laser vein removal, the laser treatment delivers laser energy to the vein to coagulate the blood inside the vein. The body gradually absorbs the vessel. Laser vein removal is completely safe and does not require any injections or surgery.
