What is Laser Vein Removal?
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 how its work?
During laser spider vein 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, like 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 four treatments will be required.
