About Laser Vein Treatment

Laser technology offers an efficient means of treating spider veins. When a laser is applied to the skin, these blood cells become very hot and create a clotting effect. This collapses or closes the vein while sparing the surrounding skin. The body will then slowly remove the collapsed veins during the natural healing process, thus reducing the spider veins’ appearance.

Ideal Candidate For Laser Vein Treatment

You’re a good candidate if you have visible spider veins or cherry angiomas and want to minimize their appearance. Popular treatment areas include the facial region, but also the torso and chest. (For leg vein treatment, please see your local vein and vascular surgeon/specialist).

Laser Vein Treatment Duration And Downtime

Each treatment takes about 15 to 30 minutes to perform, depending on the area being treated. Generally, patients should expect between one and three laser treatments, about four weeks apart. The procedure improves the overall appearance of the blood vessels, shrinking, diminishing, or removing them completely. Laser treatment for veins should not be considered a cure. New developing veins cannot be prevented.* After treatment, there is no downtime and minimal discomfort.

Patients are encouraged to resume all normal activities immediately. Soon after the procedure, you may feel a slight bump on the skin, which will disappear in the next 2-4 hours. The area may also appear slightly redder and occasionally may swell or bruise. Infrequently pigment changes occur (darkening of the skin) and will disappear and return to normal over time. After laser therapy, it is strongly recommended to stay out of direct sun exposure for a week or two.

Typical Results After Laser Vein Treatment

Final results may not be apparent for several weeks. The treated veins will slowly fade as the body removes them. Most patients are satisfied with the results in a short time.*
