Spider Vein Treatment

What is spider vein treatment?

Spider veins are dark red or purple, and most commonly appear on the legs. They occur when the blood supply attempts to travel backwards, causing the skin to swell up and the veins to rise to the surface. While spider veins are no cause for alarm, they can contribute to a poor self-image, especially when they blanket the legs. Laser therapy precisely targets the spider veins, obliterating them.

Typically, at least two separate treatment sessions are required. The laser may feel like a rubber band snapping against the skin: not painful per se, but uncomfortable. The sensation is over the moment the laser is lifted from the skin. The patient must avoid blood-thinning medications for at least two weeks prior to surgery and is encouraged to wear compression stockings after treatment.
